Nothing to say (i.e. nothing negative). The room was super comfortable, the breakfast was wholesome and tasty, the location next to SBB was very convenient (for us). Absolutely recommended. Will definitely return

We stayed at this hotel as part of a railway group and it couldn't have been better located. Just over the road from the main station. There is a co-op store around the corner for all your supplies and there are lots of places to eat at the station. It was lovely and quiet and the rooms were very nice... More

This hotel is ideally located right across the street from the Swiss train station with bus and tram transportation right outside. You can take the bus from the airport and there is space on the bus for luggage and you get off at the last stop at the train station and the hotel is directly to the left of the... More

Great location and a nice hotel. The staff are attentive and you will love the breakfast! I had reason to call on assistance whilst staying. The safe was broken which I needed, and the bedside lamp was broken. Despite two promises to fix only the safe was. Without a bedside lamp you only have the main room lights. Not good... More

The room was extra clean, good choice of swiss ammenity product. Also soft blankets and good quality pillows. No A/C noises and good wall insulation. Its up to you of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights after arriving from Berlin via Basel Mulhouse airport. Getting here was easy via Bus 50 from the airport ending in Basel's main train station, then we just crossed the street to get to the hotel. We booked through hotels.com and unfortunately, our booking did not include breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful although we... More

I booked into this hotel by circumstance due to train delays. The hotel was on the doorstep of the Basel train station and with a friendly reception I was assisted with an overnight stay. The room was of a very good standard and comfortable with all the expected conveniences. The Room was quiet with hardly any city noise which may... More

Likey likey: good location, friendly reception ( this is Switzerland where polite rather than friendly often rules), free bus pass- even if you're not 65- common in Switzerland and I liked the breakfast buffet selection- sparkling wine always does it for me. Roomy rooms with bit of an odd layout withnobuilt in wardrobe where you expect to find one) and... More

A bit more expensive than other hotels in the "main railway station area" of many other European cities we have stayed, but then this is Switzerland and the whole area is relatively up-market. For the money, however, you get a nicely appointed room, helpful staff and a convenient location from which to hop on and off the city trams and... More

The VICTORIA HOTEL is new, very well located in front of the main train station, very handy if you are travelling around. Breakfast was nice, not a big offer but nice, will be perfect if they put more fresh fruit and fried eggs.
