The hotel is situated a good fifteen minute walk or three of four tram stops from the main shopping, eating parts of Basel. Reception staff were friendly and efficient. We booked a classic room which was large enough but faced on to the main street. The room and bathroom were very clean.We only used the restaurant once and that was... More

We checked in on a Sunday, with the city pretty much closed. The hotel is business hotel, just about meets the requirement. Is located at area with limited options to eat , one needs to go about 3 stops away (in a tram)to the main Basel area for pretty much everything. The breakfast was a bit expensive and opted out...

Great hotel, close to exhibition centre and trams. Reasonably priced food and surprisingly good for a 3 star hotel. Be aware there are no fridges in rooms so don't buy anything you want to keep cold. Definitely stay here again.

I've had two stays at the Dorint recently due to work. Both times I had an apartment room, with one at the back of the hotel and one on the front. Check-in was efficient and I found that all of the staff were welcoming and friendly. I find that the atmosphere for a hotel can be set by the staff... More

The hotel is ideal for a short stay. The room was clean, comfortable and had everything that was needed. Wifi is free and easy to access. The restaurant is good with attentive, professional front of house staff and seems popular with locals which gives it a good atmosphere, even if you're eating by yourself. The front desk staff were helpful,... More

I stayed here for four nights, it was an excellent place to stay and a convenient location. My room was fine (not a great view though). The breakfast was nice, a reasonably good selection of food to choose from, especially since I had multiple meals there. Basel is an easy city to walk, and there are many options for food... More

Stayed here for one night in November 2013. Professional and fast check-in and -out processes. Small room but OK for a short stay. A couple of mudstains on the carpet indicated that the cleaning might not have been as thourough as it should be. The rest of the room and the bathroom were impeccable though. Conveniently located within walking distance... More

English speaking staff, a restaurant that works great for those “by yourself” business trip meals, a bar and a great choice for breakfast. Rooms are that typically Swiss style and are comfortable. The more expensive rooms have A/C or are away from the traffic at the back of the hotel. I’ve stayed in all of them over the years and... More

Great location, quick access to the tram network, nice clean rooms, and really helpful staff make this a great business hotel for stay in Basel. The congress center is a 5 min walk, while the town center (Marktplatz) takes about 15-20 mins. I was here for a week and had a good stay.

Take a Number 2 tram from the train station to the Congress stop and walk north for 5-10mins and your there. Found this the closest and more reasonably priced hotel close to Congress Centre. However with great tram network and free travel tickets with hotel room I could have stayed further away. Hotel had free wifi. Only one bottle of... More
