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!

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
