Our business brought us to Basel and the conveniently located hotel was just right. Easy access from train, a few minute walk from the town center and restaurants. The hotel had nice staff, good breakfast and bar for the evening. I took the suggestion of others and stayed on an upper floor, but over looking the platz. this view was... More

Location of the hotel is very convenient. Next to the tram station and next to the SBB train station. If you check in you receive a public transport pass that allows you to use public transport in Basel. I also received the wireless code for the internet. (Network is not really fast, but ok) As mentioned in other reviews the... More

I had been looking forward to staying at this hotel for my first night in Basel. I was very disappointed with the unfriendly welcome at reception. When I asked to see a room I was shown a large double room with a view over the main square - this was very different to the single room that I ended up... More

This hotel meets all the requirements of a good hotel. Location staff the premise it self. All good. I have been staying here for years when i travel to Basel. All your needs are met. One let down is that instead of chocolate on the pillow there was sugas this time. Otherwise all is good.

The best part about about Schweizerhof is it's location. It's right next to the train station and all you have to do is cross the road to catch your train! It's centrally located, with stores like Coop next to it! The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious. The concierge was extremely helpful. He suggested us to do the cruise starting... More

This hotel is 100 metres from the station and the bus to the airport stops 50 metres away. All hotels give you a free public transport card in Basel and we used it lots. The hotel is excellent with helpful reception staff and overall we really couldn't fault it.

The location is great if you need to get trains or trams. As a single traveller on this trip I was expecting to pay a premium for a room so just over £70 for a night was the best price I got in 7 days. Breakfast would have been another 25chf though, and so I grabbed coffee & roll at... More

Hotel is half-block from Basel SSB (main train station), so super convenient. Very nice and quite spacious room (Business Double Room) on back side (away from street w trams), overlooking rooftops; hotel recently renovated & rooms are pleasant and comfortable, really nice bedding. The young man at check-in was polite and efficient, no problems. They have some deal with the... More

We checked in early, and the staff was so helpful with storing our luggage, giving us free passes for transportation, and selling us tickets for the two art museums we had chosen. The hotel is right by the train station with its various stores plus many trams stopped in front of the facility. We were upgraded to a corner room,... More
