I stayed in the Hotel for a week in the month of June. Best thing about the Hotel is the location. It is located right at the heart of the city. The Hotel is right at the start of the market area, 5 minutes from the river Rhine. It has lot of good restaurants in the walking proximity. One of... More

The staff in this hotel were incredibly helpful and friendly. The hotel's décor is nothing to write home about, but it is very clean and well situated within Basel. I am sure that this is an excellent hotel to stay in if travelling on a budget. We liked the fact that breakfast started at 06:30am as we had our longest... More

This hotel looks very old from the outside but inside they are trying hard to maintain this place. The rooms were quite small & the bathrooms were adequate. Two bottles of water & Complimentary Wifi were good. The tram stops just outside the hotel so this helped us to reach from the train station. The Breakfast was disappointing & was... More

I've stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. Had a double room which was quite spacious, comfy bed and a bathroom rather on the small side (I couldn't find the light switch to the bathroom until I realised it was hiding behind the sliding door - means to turn on and off the bathroom lights, the door needs...

First of all, may I say the staff were absolutely exceptional from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble every need catered for 5*****. Room clean and tidy and quiet. 5 mins walk to Claraplatz with a great choice of trams to all parts of town. Only 10 mins walk to the Messe, so ideal for exhibitions. Totally enjoyed... More

The hotel is near the Clara platz and the Basel Exhibition Centre which was the main reason for us to choose it. Hotel Basilisk offers a really budget stay in Basel, small rooms, very modest decoration of rooms, old renovation. The main shortcoming of the hotel is that there is no ventilation in the bathroom (room # 112). Wifi was... More

After being royally shafted by another hotel who I shall refrain from naming for now and being left very stressed at the thought of being stuck in Basel without a room for two nights Basilisk found me a room at very short notice for much less than the price I had already paid for the rip off hotel. I was... More

I needed a cheap accommodation for just one night and this one was for the best price that Booking.com had in offer - 80 CHF. Small single room on the top floor, with shared bathrooms (luckily no qeues), sink in the room and a balcony with beautiful view, litte table and 2 chairs. The bed and the pillow were cool... More

This was a nice hotel, friendly clean and excellent value. Yes the room is small but very clean and tidy. Well positioned for old town and congress centre. Much better than some reviews suggested. Nice outside area to enjoy the sun

This hotel is about a 15 minute walk outside of the main town but with a tram stop right outside the front door it's just 5 minutes away to town. The tram system is free to tourists. I stayed here on my own as my friends were in another hotel as they booked at a different time to me. The... More
