We recently stayed at Hotel Basel for two nights in early April 2014 following a Rhine River Cruise. The hotel is in a great location for strolling around the Old City and is only a block away from the public tram line. There are many shops, bakeries, and restaurants in the immediate vicinity and it was only a 10-15 minute... More

We stayed 1 night this April with my wife + 2 kids and had a wonderful stay. We asked for the large room under the roof with the special bathroom (glasses). The room is very bright and large enough to stay with two kids. The hotel is very central and convenient for a visit of this lovely city. Highly recommended.... More

We stayed at Hotel Basel in April 2014 for three nights before boarding our Rhine River Cruise. The property was very nice overall. We specifically were looking for a king bed, so this hotel met that need. The room was nice, quiet and well appointed. The restaurant served a breakfast buffet that was exceptional, and pricey. The front desk staff... More

We stayed one night on our way to onboard a river cruise. The first impression was excellent, since the hotel is located on a beautiful corner of the old town. The flowers, the entrance, and the greeting staff refreshed our moods, after a 17 hours trip from Puerto Rico. I highly recommend this hotel, and would stay there again, if... More

We arrived early, but the hotel had our rooms ready. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The manager came by twice to be sure we had everything we needed. The room did not have a coffee pot, so she promptly got us a water kettle and instant coffee. The location is in the Old City, so we could just... More

This is an excellent hotel located in the very centre of Basel. Rooms are clean, comfortable and very quiet, the staff were all charming and very helpful. The breakfast was rather expensive so we ate out instead - at the local department store.

Oh, I love, love the breakfast. Good selection. Love their beds. The location is perfect to explore Basel by foot, and Johann Wanner is next door for must have Christmas Tree decorations. However, when you need a cab or a friend to pick you up on the weekend, be prepared for stares from pedestrians. Cars etc are allowed for pick... More
