Very nice hotel with a convenient location near the train station (Basel SBB) and next to a busy public transport hub. We were travelling by car but the free public transport ticket offered by the hotel for the duration of our stay was useful (although the city is compact enough to walk most places). There is some limited parking in... More

The Schweizerhof Basel Hotel was the last stop of our Switzerland tour. It is a good choice for travelers who need a convenient location. It's located near the train station, and we easily walked there with our luggage. The rooms are clean and well-equipped, and the breakfast, which is served in the lobby, was very good.

Very impressed with this hotel. Recently refurbished 'Victorian' building. First class facilities, not too expensive, clean, everything working, efficient service, great breakfast, well situated opposite tram and railway station if connections required.

Terrific location next to the Swiss (SBB ) and convenient for all the trams and trains, and a fairly new interior. However your can hear the trams if you are a light sleeper.. No restaurant on site (except breakfast) but you can visit Mr Wong next door for dinner - but I don't advise it !. One big black mark... More

What a great location! Right opposite the railway station, with tram stops outside the door. Although the trams go right under the window, strangely they are not intrusive. Our room was great - a good size, good amenities and spotless. Staff were all pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was more than adequate in a continental breakfast way! Would certainly stay again!

Although we only stayed 1 night, we wished we stayed here longer. I've only listed positives below (as I didn't encounter any negatives). Staff: We were very pleased with the service we received from the staff. They were friendly and helpful. Location: Within a stones throw from Bahnhof SBB railway station, the airport bus and connections to many trams throughout... More

Generally you expect hotels that are close to railway stations in large cities to be less attractive but this is certainly not the case at the Schweizerhof. The location is perfect, you are a minute's walk from the station, but the hotel itself is clean and spacious and the staff are really helpful.There is no air conditioning, you can actually... More

Great hotel. Very clean. We were on the fifth floor and even with our windows open it was quiet. That's a lot to be said when the main train station is across the street!! Breakfast was good, but expensive. But it seems like everything is pricey in Switzerland! Definitely thought it was a good value though.

I usually have more critics than compliments for most Swiss hotels, but the Schweizerhof didn't disappoint. Extremely well located, 50m from the railway station and just ate the tram station, this hotel just delivered what it promised. Simple, rather small but not microscopic, clean, quiet and well equipped room, straightforward service, and a few details like a good bathroom, fast... More

The service was great, the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was everything we expected. Absolutely loved the fact that the hotel gives guests tickets for free local transportation. The proximity to the main train station was an added bonus. In short: if you need or want to stay in Basel, Schweizerhof is the place to choose!
