We arrived from a cruise at 9 a.m. and were expecting to have to wander the streets for hours waiting for check-in time. So we were delighted to be told by the receptionist that because they were expecting us early our room was ready and we could check in. They also provide for late check-out at no extra charge -...

The Hotel is close to the center of activity and an easy walk to many areas, including the Rhine River and border locations. The staff was friendly and very helpful, Charlotte Bleser, the Front Office Service Manager, went out of her way in helping my wife and I make our stay a memorable experience ! I would highly recommend this... More

Easy to get to by public transport from airport though we took a taxi b/c luggage. Very friendly staff. We had 3d floor room. Wifi good. Selection teas, coffee (both powder and Nespresso). We didn't use minibar. Found food and esp wine expensive in Basel. Wine at 0.1 L ie 3 oz cost more than CN wine at our usual... More

The air con in our room was not working (35c outside) and out room was changed at once. The dinner was good and the breakfast outstanding. We did not get the chance to try the pol and gym but understand... More

I stayed in this hotel for few weeks for work. I ended up staying here primarily for the decent swimming pool. Strangely this is one of the few hotel in Basel with a decent size pool. The rooms could vary, from a tiny room that i was given on my first stay to nice large comfortable senior exec rooms. Avoid... More

Very central location with a tram stop right outside the door. The staff are very well trained. Very helpful and excellent to deal right from the front desk to cleaners. When travelling makes life a lot easier. A good gym and a surprising large pool. Only negative was a small bathroom however the trade off was a larger room. Wifi... More

Great location, great food, very helpful and pleasant staff. I really enjoyed my stay. The only thing is that rooms are really small and bathroom tiny so if you are a bigger person you probably can hit some walls while in bathroom bathing - but apart from that really great stay

I stayed at the Radisson Blu Basel for three nights during the Whit Monday (lundi de Pentecote) weekend. The hotel seemed relatively quiet and the atmosphere generally relaxed. The front desk staff was welcoming, professional (especially Martin), and helped with all my questions. I was upgraded to a business class room on the 5th floor. The king bed was comfy... More
