I used to live in Basel, and was returning to meet up with friends. Usually I stay with friends, but had family with me so didn't want to overwhelm them. Swiss hotels are notoriously overpriced, so I was glad to find Hotel D which was reasonable and in a fantastic convenient central location, the Rhein is literally across the street.... More

This hotel is a nice, new, modern, boutique hotel. It's clean, offers free Wifi, and is just around the corner to the inner-city and the Rhine. My room was on the street side and at night it was quiet. In the morning, the trams start up and you begin to hear some noise, but I slept with my window open... More

Very friendly staff and very comfortable hotel. It is located near the river and Marktplatz. Easy to get to by tram. Hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but there are many cozy places to eat at the old town nearby.

The location of the hotel is at the edge of Alt Stadt. Easy walking distance to many things. Even though we had a mobility ticket we only used it a couple of times. The breakfast has an extensive selection and should meet everyones needs. The rooms are modern and clean with a wonderful shower. The young staffers Anja and Sebastian... More

The hotel was very easy to reach from Basel main train station by bus. The staff on duty was also very helpful on getting many information for us. Had a problem of getting a rental car since it was a long weekend, which he also assisted by providing potential contacts. Comfortable & beautiful room, and unique modern design. Thumbs up!

We have just recently had 5 nights at the Hotel D. As one of us was attending a conference, the hotel location close to the University and to the centre of town, as well as the bridge across to the bars and shopping on the other bank of the river made it a very convenient location. The reception staff were... More

We stayed four nights in this hotel. The location was very good, within easy walking distance of the river, restaurants, shops and historic sites. We were also right next to bus and tram stops and a travel pass was provided to guests in the hotel, so getting around Basel was so easy. The hotel was modern...everything new and clean. The... More

We're so glad we used Tripadvisor to find a hotel in Basel. First of all, our beautiful, quiet room was reasonably (for Switzerland) priced and relatively large. If you can manage it, move up to "Executive" size. Not only was the room spotless and very comfortable, the design of the room and the bathroom was striking. It was quite modern... More
