Just wanted to reiterate this hotel is no longer but still shows up on searches. There is an incredible shortage of hotel rooms in Basel so book early or the rates will skyrocket. I've stayed at the Swiss Hotel and The Three Kings, both fabulous room rates have ranged from 225 swiss francs booking early to 800 swiss francs for... More

Having stayed here many times on my way to and from Geneva, this was to be my last time as I discovered upon checking in at midnight. The hotel was closing the following day so that the owner can knock it down to make way for yet another more profitable development!! But what cannot be replicated is the fabulous team... More

My friend and I stayed there in August 2015 for 3 nights prior to taking a Viking river cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. The location is excellent just a very short walk from the train station/trams. We had booked a twin room which was not available so were upgraded to the Executive floor so we could have separate beds and... More

Hilton Basel is a perfect location just a couple of blocks from the main train station from which departs the EuroAirport bus and several trams branching out to various parts of the city. It stands at the edge of the university area and a small leafy park at the edge of old town-perfect for exploring on foot. Every hotel guest... More

I spent the second last night at this hotel before it will stop operating. By this, Hilton will no longer be present in Basel and along with this Hilton will again diminish its presence in Switzerland. I had quite a long-standing relationship built up with this hotel and the hotel staff. I was a happy guest and I am sad,... More

Attitude of service professionals leave a lot to be desired. Four of my co-workers had a rate of 192 whereas my rate was >350. Service professionals said "there was nothing they could do"...I was "out of luck". Same room/same service....twice the price. Not happy.

Hotel is conveniently located near the train station where public transport is free for all foreigners. Ask the hotel for your free transport card and they'll give it to you for the duration of your stay. Hotel has an executive floor (8th floor) where they serve breakfast, mid day snacks and cocktails. Breakfast at level -1 has a wide choice... More

This hotel is close to the central train station, (not noisy), many restaurants and attractions. Easy to zip to Lucerne and back for the day or see old town a short distance away. We used mileage points and reduced the cost to less than 100€ p/night.

Great location- less than 5 min walk to train station and tram station. Hotel in need of renovation. Free wi-fi only available in hotel reception. On some occasions we had to sit on stairs in reception which does not give a good impression for guests and visitors to the hotel- not what you would expect from a Hilton hotel! Breakfast... More

I have stayed at the Hilton Basel many times. It is a good hotel from a location perspective. Located next to the Train Station, you can easily fly into Zurich and take the 1:15 train ride directly to the hotel. The rooms are predictably Hilton, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Ask them to help you find cuisine nearby,... More
