We stayed in the Schweizerhof in Basel for 2 nights. The location is excellent & public transport is right at your doorstep. The atmosphere in the hotel is very good, welcoming & with friendly staff. The rooms are big and cosy. Pricewise, very good. A definite must on your next visit to Basel.

Has all that I need when I am on business. Right next to train station, right next to BIS. Free transportation pass for use on trams. Across from Starbucks. Free non-alcoholic beverages available to all rooms. Fairly large rooms with those famous Swiss comforters. Not much for decor in the rooms, although the hotel is current decor. Very good breakfast... More

This hotel was recommended by colleagues who travel to Basel a lot on business. I have to admit the location was great. Right next to the main rail station in Basel. The trams come in and out of a kind of 'hub' right outside the station, in front of the hotel, and I was able to take a tram to... More

This hotel is across the road from the main station and the airport bus stop. Many of the main sights are in Ealing distance and the hotel gives guests a free tram and bus pass for the duration of one's stay. 5 tram and bus lines run by the hotel, but I could hear nothing because of the sound-proof windows....

Perfect location about 2 minute walk from the train station. It is also about a 5 minute walk from the centre. You can tell the hotel owners care. The hotel is very smart and the food is excellent. The rooms are modern, clean, and have walk in showers which are fantastic. Our only regret is that we had one night... More

Stayed one night as part of Rail Discoveries holiday. Ideal location for train station - unfortunately weren't in Basel long enough to explore as departed 10am. However, overnight stay very comfortable - spacious bedroom with tea/coffee making facilities + complementary soft drinks/water/ice on each corridor fridge cupboard. Attractive reception area with small bar + seating in lobby. Breakfast was an... More

This hotel has a great central location, traditional decor and a fabulous, fresh and varied breakfast to offer every morning. After a week of staying there, I still had yet to try it all! The room was somewhat basic but quiet enough to work and get a good night's sleep. The staff were highly efficient, accommodating and very pleasant. A... More
