I stayed there in July 2013 for a business trip with my wife. The hotel has very good location two minutes away tram station, by the Rhein and walking distance to Marketplatz. Rooms are quite well and roomy hence I should warn you that there was no air condition in our room. The room has view over Rhein, and in... More

Stayed one night in this hotel after many years, and was really very happy. Awesome location on the Rhein, and right in the centre of town- I had a cosy double room with a lovely balcony and view. Efficient checkin and checkout and surprisingly decent breakfast with good service all round, despite full occupancy owing to the big baselworld fair.... More

This hotel is at a convenient location on the bank of the River Rhine and about a half block from the Rheingasse tram and bus stop for a number of lines which go directly to either of the two train stations (Bad or SBB). One nice touch is that all visitors checking into any of the city’s hotels receive a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Merian Am Rhein in the lead up to christmas so we could enjoy the wonderful Basel Christmas Markets. The hotels central location on the tram line and an easy walk to the shopping centre and markets was a big plus. A Basel offering is also a complimentary tram pass for each of the guests, which...

Stayed here one night on business, the room was very small, it felt like I could reach across the room and reach two walls. Having said that the room was clean and functional in a pretty convenient location, for heading out for dinner. The highlight was the breakfast - although it doesn't have as many options as other hotels I've... More

we stayed overnight for the winter market on the way to Strasbourg at the end of November. The hotel was easy to find, and pretty convenient for the city centre. It has a nice, old-fashioned feel to it. The trams outside were easy to use and the hotel provided a free tram pass. Our room overlooked the river, small but... More

I always like the old world smaller hotels.....the rooms are functional and clean and all that a business person needs when traveling alone. the location is excellent and one can run/walk/bike right outside the front door along the north bank of the Rhein. Staff are very friendly and helpful...almost scarily so :-) It's worth the extra money for the river... More
