This is a "Swiss Army Knife" of hotels. Everything works and is highly functional and organised. When booking in they check how many WIFI devices you need and give you a separate code for each one. That makes things so much simpler in our world of iPads iPhones and tablets and means all can be connected at once. They also... More

Stayed 1 night during business trip. 30 seconds away from the gate of train station and 5 mins away from town centre by tram! Room was much better than expected. The corner room I would suggest you to ask upon checking-in.

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful hotel for two nights. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom had a fabulous walk-in-shower. The breakfast buffet and service were outstanding. The hotel is centrally located, not far from the shops, museums and restaurants. We would recommend this hotel most definitely.

I only stayed in this hotel for 1 night enroute home from the Swiss Alps, but what a hotel! Very good central location with very easy transport links (trains and trams). Trams stop right outside and the train station is just across the square. The rooms are huge. I was on the 4th floor round the side of the building.... More

We stayed here in November 2014 for 1 night on a layover after getting off a river cruise. This hotel is in a great location....very easy to get to by train, bus or tram. We arrived at 11.00am and was pleasantly surprised our room was available, so we were able to drop off our luggage and then explore the city.... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your fantastic, immaculate, welcoming, warm hotel. Every thing was perfect and we found the price value for money especially when comparing to other hotels. The free cold drinks and water also were also gratefully accepted and helped to save money in an expensive but utterly gorgeous destination. Being in your city was magical... More

Good hotel with a lot going for it (except the tram station outside my window). This was my first time staying in Schweizerhof Basel Hotel and as one of the other reviewers has already pointed out, it is not cheap, especially when you consider there is not even a 'cooked' breakfast. The room was spacious as was the bed and... More

Unfortunately, all the hotels in this immediate area are on the pricey side - I guess that's how they get away with it - although I've found by experience that the rooms are generally larger than the nearby competition.. Having said that, the location is excellent - right next to the train station and the (free to foreigners) tram terminal,... More

Located bang opposite the main station and in front of the tram terminus, it could not be more central, though the noise sometimes filters into the rooms. A very old hotel, the rooms are comfortable nevertheless. And the breakfast room which opens almost to the pavement is nice.

The tram station is in front of the hotel so it's easy to use public transport. Staff is also very nice helping whenever you need it. If you're not into getting up early take a room on the higher floor not to hear the trams. Overall worth recommending
