Stayed here for two nights in December on a business trip. Getting there from Basel airport is easy enough. Take the number 50 bus from the airport to the railway station, then cross over the road and take the number 30 bus to the hotel. Buy the bus ticket outside the airport at the machine, 9.59 SwFr about £7. Alternatively... More

Hotel right by the conference center in Basel. Rooms are clean and reasonable spacious. I checked in late and left earöy, so really .only slept there. Prices are extremely variable, ranging from 90CHF to 400CHF during BaselWorld (the jewlery fair, so well worth booking early and watching online to see the evolution of the prices. Basel is never really cheap.... More

A nice, clean and modern hotel, would definitely return, it's in a good location and worth stopping at if you have not got a recommendation. The food was nice, easy to access the city centre by foot and close to team stops if you want to go further afield. Give it a try.

The rooms were clean and modern, the staff were helpful and it includes a travel pass to use all travel for free. Only complaints I have is that you had to pay extra for tea and coffee facilities and even then it came with disgusting 'powdered cream' instead of milk. Also the room was always too cold or too hot.... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Dorint Hotel in Basel from the 14th of December to the 17th of December. We found the hotel very clean, and generally the staff were very friendly and happy to do all they could for us if we had a problem. The rooms themselves also were nice and clean, however it was hard... More

There was one chair in the room and little walking space. No ice, no frig, no bedside clock. The blanket was small and the twin beds had one pillow each. The sheets were rough, like serge. The location was OK, close to the tram system. Everything cost extra (breakfast $26/ea.) but they did give us complimentary tram tickets good for... More

Stayed here a week while in business. The wifi codes expires every day and can be quite painful sometimes to get connected. The food in the attached restaurant is extremely expensive and not worth the money. Luckily, there are plenty of restaurants with in walking distance.

This is an excellent hotel near the city's bustling centre. The reception staff were very friendly with fantastic English. The room was spacious enough and comfortable. The Internet connection in the room was great and allowed me to connect with more than one device. The shower was brilliant, plenty of space and no temperature oscillation. Breakfast was another high point,... More

I had the opportunity to stay in a single room at the Dorint Hotel for 8 nights. Room was fine for business travel or for leisure travel. Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Easy to reach from Basel SBB on Bus 30 and also an easy walk to Badischer Bahnhof. AS in all Basel hotels, breakfasy is expensive,... More

I had stayed before and was not too happy to be there again, as it is very noisy on the street, so I asked for a room at the back - an extra 25 CHF, but worth the quieter night. Room fine and everything worked. Horrid floors, no warmth on mock wooden floors and the towels in the bathroom were... More
