We stayed in this hotel for three nights and fortunately had a room facing the interior courtyard so were not disturbed by the noise of the trams. However, the noise is not excessive and we thought the city was in fact very quiet. Most of the traffic is kept away from the city centre so there is no noise from... More

I really enjoyed this hotel. They were right next to the train station and upon arrival, they greeted us very nicely, had drinks and fruit, and upgraded us to a junior suite. The TV welcomes the guest as well. Great value especially in Basel and great service.

One night stay for business. Based upon reviews and pictures of hotel, I was a little weary about staying at Hotel Victoria. I was upgraded to a junior suite in the "La Residence" section of the hotel and I was very pleased with my stay. While not fancy, the room seemed to be recently updated and checked all of the...

Glassware in room not changed daily, possible bug infestation in couch. Indifferent staff. Will not be staying here ever again. I've stayed here before without a problem but this time was the worst. Many other choices - recommend to look around.

This hotel is located at a busy tram and train station but this should not put you off as the hotel itself is superb and the staff ultra efficient. Approximately £6 bus fare straight out of the airport will deliver you to the front doors of the hotel. Accross the road there is the main train station which can take... More

Excellent location across from the tram and buses. You can walk to the Marketplatz and absolutely anything you need is right there. Cleverly laid out, neat, clean and helpful staff. Oddly, this is the only hotel that I have stayed at that did not ask for a credit card or payment until we left. Juice and ginger snaps or fruit... More

There are three basic services I expect a hotel to provide to its guests: a good night's sleep, a refreshing (morning) shower and some feeling of hospitality. Hotel Victoria provides nothing of it all. Although I booked a suite (turning out to be a big room with a closet in the middle to divide the sleeping area from the sitting... More

We regretted that we only stayed here one night. It was absolutely incredible in every way. It was probably the most comfortable place we stayed on our entire Switzerland trip - with its luxurious beds and down comforters. The room was huge by European standards and the bathroom was exquisitely large and clean. The room was quiet and tastefully decorated.... More

Easy to hop the train to the old city of Basel and a clean, nice place to stay. We were only there one night on our way to Strasbourg. Basel is such a nice town and we loved the Christmas Market in December. We would stay again... L and M

A good, efficient, clean hotel in the heart of Basel, opposite the main railway station and a short walk from the city centre but it has little personality. The staff were friendly and, as you would expect, multi-lingual, offering excellent suggestions for both restaurants and places to visit. The lifts are close to reception but no help was offered with... More
