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.

1) Ideal Location - Just Opp the Main Train Station - even if you land at Basel Airport, just a 15 minutes bus Drive away.

Nice efficient and comfortable hotel next to the BIS Tower and across from the main train ataron. Rooms are small but clean and well appointed. Restaurant was good but the buffet meal at CHF 27 was a bit pricey unless you are really hungry. The European or Farmers breakfast at CHF 12 is a better deal.

This hotel sits directly across the street from the train station and next to the bus station. It also has a restaurant and pub downstairs with a cafe outside. The triple room we had was very spacious and had a separate bedroom for us and a sitting area with a pullout bed for her. We had 2 bathrooms which were... More

Very comfortable when you arrive by train, the room was nice and clean. The breakfast was exelent, everything was very fresh. The only thing for me was too expensive and the breakfast was not included. This properly depends on the Hotel Offer.

Maybe a tad expensive but they all are in Basel, very nice hotel right across the train station and nice cafés. They even provide you with a free transport card for the time of your stay. I walked in and they were happy to offer me the booking.com rate.

The staff are friendly and efficient. The restaurant offers good food and service. You can stay in the main hotel with bigger rooms, some facing the magnificent train station, or quieter rooms in the extension in the rear.

This hotel is close to the tram and train station so it is easily accessable to the the other part of the city talking about the room we booked a suite so it was quite large as expected from a four star hotel but it lack service in the restaurant.
