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

I stayed here with my girlfriend who is a wheelchair user. Most of it is accessible. They provided a chair for the shower and we're very accommodating. The staff are very friendly and speak English. My girlfriend says they could do with putting a grab bar in the shower to help with transferring.

Hotel Schweitzerhof is a quaint little hotel that is conveniently located next to the Basel SBB train station and many tram lines. You get get anywhere in Basel very easily or anywhere in Switzerland for that matter as it is near a large transit hub. The rooms are very well kept, clean, and well decorated. The room had high ceilings,... More
