Spent a single night there for the Basel Tattoo and needed an Hotel close to the train station: ++ : Location is hard to beat because as soon as you exit the train station, you just need to turn your head slightly to the right to catch the Victoria Hotel. Next to it, is the tram station .. so perfect... More

The hotel is conveniently placed opposite the train station and ajacent to the tram station. Unfortunately we had a front facing room which was noisy and competed with the noise from the struggling air conditioning unit which we needed at 32cº . The facilities were good tea, coffee, etc the staff at reception were help to us but the poor... More

Opposite Basel HBB main train station, and the bus terminus from the airport, very convenient hotel that does the job nicely. The street outside is busy with trams, buses and taxis, so I guess rooms at the front may be noisy. My room in the adjacent building behind the hotel was beautifully quiet. Nice room, most amenities (no ironing facility... More

The hotel is convenient. However the otherwise comfortable room was ruined by the lack of air conditioning. On checking in, I found the portable air conditioner was broken so asked reception for this to be fixed. On my return from dinner not only was it not fixed, but no-one had been to the room to look a very uncomfortable 25... More

I stayed in this hotel before, came back again and was very happy with my choice. I found the staff friendly and had clean and comfortable room. Location of the hotel is very convenient. If you are travelling by train or plane, I would definitely recommend the hotel.

Stayed at Hotel Victoria for a conference first week of June. This is a great location, in front of the train station. To digress, the train station contains convenient shops. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful for city directions. I stayed in a comfort room and it was spacious and good price for the size. The... More

We have stayed for 3 nights in the Victoria Hotel. The hotel is situated next to the central station with an airport bus every 10 minutes. The city center is a 10 minute walk. We were upgraded to a junior suite because a standard room would be too small. We appreciated that very much. We also got free public transport... More

You cannot find a better located hotel if you plan to arrive in Basel by train, which is often the case. The hotel is exactly opposite the main exit of the train station. I checked in at the hotel at around 0800, expecting to have my luggage stored, but to my pleasant surprise, i was offered a room at this... More

Hotel Victoria is just across from Train station and Tram hub in Basel. Very old hotel that has been excellently updated - Rooms are quite comfortable, suite was quite sizeable compared to other area hotels. Occasional tram noise if you are on the front of the building but sun shades and blackout curtains mitigate most of this. This would be... More

The location near the train station was great for us. We were able to drop off our bags and then go explore. The light train can be caught right outside the hotel and from there you can go anywhere. They give you a card that makes the light train and buses free. The towels are the BEST EVER. Huge, thirsty... More
