It was a great stay. Nice and helpful staff. A few steps from train station and in front of many bus stops. Room was very quiet despite the window was facing on main street. The bathroom was spacious with a comfortable shower. I think I'll return here my next time in BASEL.

I had stayed at the Schweizerhof in Bern, so when I reserved here I was expecting the same quality, but this Hotel has no relation with it. Service was good, room nice, good buffet breakfast. Across from the Tram station and train station

This hotel, which sits on the edge of the tram and rail station is quirky but comfortable. The food is fine and the staff incredibly helpful and friendly. Every one of them that I met could not have been kinder. Extraordinarily my room had an exercise bike and exercise wall bars on the wall - half gym, half room, not... More

We used booking.com to find a last minute place in Basel as our travel plans ended there for the day. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room itself was very nice complete with laminate flooring and very comfortable beds. The price was also very good and lower than what you might expect in a somewhat expensive area. The only...

Great location near Basel SBB main train station & main tram stop right outside. Within walking distance from many restaurants, sites, the river and downtown. The breakfast is very good with a wide variety of food - fruit, yogurt, museli, breads, dried fruits, pastries, smoked meats & cheeses, etc. Coffee is delicious and waiters are attentive. You also get a... More

This hotel was magnificent. We were booked in by a company called Rad & Reisen who arrange bike tours. The hotel is across the road from the Basel SBB railway station and a short walk to the Rhine river. There were restaurants close by and also at the hotel. Although it displays only as a three star we thought it... More

I stayed at this hotel for a night on May 2014. The staff was really helpful and courteous. The room was clean and exceptional. I needed to fly to the UK for a day and the staff had no issues keeping my luggage there until i got back even though i checked out of the hotel. I would love to... More

We stayed here for one night prior to catching a flight. Very good location right beside the train station in the centre of town. Very pleasant welcome. We had booked one of the top rooms which was not overly big but for one night, acceptable. I would have to say that I don't particularly wish to have an exercise bike... More

We arrived in the midst of preparations for the 150th anniversary of the hotel. Nevertheless check in was immediate and we were allocated room 515, the furthest room away from the function. After returning from dinner and gaining entry by flashing our wristbands at the security guard we slept peacefully. By the time we came down for breakfast there was... More
