We booked our room for two nights with ease, and were greeted hours earlier than our book in time to a very friendly female member of staff on front desk. (We later learned she was fluent in at least 3 languages!) She allowed us to leave our heavy bags in a safe room whilst we spent the morning touring Basel... More

I stayed here for 2 nights during my conference. Super clean hotel, great staffs.They have a iron room in the fourth floor and the breakfast was great. It's not in the best area but it's in walking distance to the old town, approximately 15 minutes, where you can walk by the water and enjoy the beautiful view.

Hotel is walking distance from messe but you will need to use public transportation to go to the city center which is not a problem as you get a free transport card when you check in. The neighborhood itself is not charming but you usually end up there on business so that is not a big deal. Staff was welcoming... More

stayed there during install of ArtBasel 2015, nice staff, standard rooms, small bathrooms, spotty wifi, you have to sign in every time you lose the connection, but it is not automatic, so you have to keep track of it, a bit annoying. Location is convenient for ArtBasel, but not for the rest of Basel, it is a small town though.... More

The Dorint is in the perfect location for my business travels. The Tram stop is nearby, as well as a train station (3-4 blocks) and one of the main roads to old town (with many restaurants). The staff has always been great (my 3rd stay), including a very gracious experience when I made an error. The restaurant is good, but... More

I stayed at the Dorint hotel last weekend, it is very easy to locate and just a short walk from the river. Basel is beautiful anyway, just to walk around. My room was contemporary, and equipped with everything a business man or woman might need for their trip. The bed was super comfy as was my pillow, I slept really... More

I stayed here for a business meeting recently. The rooms are clean and spacious, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast very varied in terms of choice. We had a meeting at the edge of the restaurant and the staff were helpful but not intrusive.

Great hotel, we had a huge room which was ideal for a family of 5. There was a small kitchen also, which was good as we opted not to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant (to save money) and we were able to store drinks and snacks in the fridge. Very comfortable beds - we all slept well. The bathroom... More

Very good breakfast, several nice options. I really liked! The hotel location is not so good as other options in Basel. The city is not that big though. Dorint Hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The employees are very polite also.
