We were pleasantly surprised to find the hotel do centrally located. We arrived just after carnival so you could see remnants of confetti on all the streets & people wearing fancy dress outfits all over town which was fun. Clean hotel, very helpful staff & a packed restaurant so we assumed the food must be good! Excellent shower pressure &... More

Stay here if you are in Basel, it's in the heart of town and is adorable, plus they have friendly staff and a strong breakfast. Right next to marketplatz so you have access the shopping and dining very easily

I try to book this hotel every time I have to travel to Basel for business but I'm not always successful as it is probably one of the best in Basel and hence heavily booked. It is a small hotel in the heart of the city, and an old part of the city at that. It is absolutely spotlessly clean... More

I stay in Basel quite regularly and have been to Hotel D, Passage, Hilton and the Radisson. Personally I prefer Hotel Basel to all of these hotels simply because the customer service is much better and feels more natural. The staff at Hotel Basel are very competent and professional at their jobs and I get the impression they enjoy working... More

Booked this hotel as part of a deal on their own website - weekend break which included 1 dinner and breakfast both mornings. This was much better value than via the English sites, eg Trivago etc. which were all room only for the same price. Room 105 was a bit small but bed was extremely comfortable. Staff were all without... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel staff are very helpful. Breakfast is pricey - recommend booking a room that includes it if possible. Rooms are typical size for Europe, but very clean. I was near an elevator & was worried about noise but this did not occur. The hotel bar/restaurant is frequented by locals and very welcoming. I would... More

Hotel Basel is very well located, but can be difficult to find. Even our navigation system was having difficulties finding directions for us due to many pedestrian streets in the area. If you arrive by car, the car will be parked for you, so leave it in front of the Hotel and hand in the keys in the reception. The... More

I spent 4 nights in this hotel two times during the last 12 months. During my 1st stay in June I was very disappointed as they did not have the pre-booked double room (booked through an agency paid by my company) but instead I got a single room where the washbasin was right behind the main entrance and the room...

On our recent trip to Basel, we stayed at the Hotel Basel for one night. We found the rooms to be spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, friendly and accomodating. And the location is FABULOUS. The staff arranged to take our car to a near-by lot and to have it ready for us early in the morning.... More
