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

I have just come back from my 29th stay at the Hotel Basel over 30 years of traveling to Basel, and as usual it was a very pleasant stay. From the minute you enter the lobby and receive a warm greating from the front desk staff till my departure 8 days later everyone went out of their way to make... 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

I appreciated the free public transport coupon during my stay and a free drink voucher as well as free wifi . Breakfast was adequate . The main benefit of the hotel is the old town location which makes it a... More

Lovely location, friendly staff, a home away from home! Close to amenities, and with a nice in house restaurant too. I would recommend this highly for business or pleasure. The price can vary a lot depending on availability, but that is Basel for you, since it is very popular for large conventions

I have been going to Basel for business for a long time (many years) and have stayed at a number of fine hotels there. But, whenever I go I always try to stay at the Hotel Basel. Although the rooms are small by American standards they are impeccably maintained, and stocked as if they had read your mind about what... More

I spent a couple of nights in the Hotel Basel on a business trip. The hotel is ideally located in the historical city centre, just a few meters away from Marktplaz and Basel University. The personnel are exquisitely helpful and efficient. The local Brasserie and Bar will welcome you in a cosy and friendly atmosphere after a long working day.... More

Hotel Basel currently sits at number 1 for the Tripadvisor reviews, and this is an accurate indication of what you get here. I have been a regular business visitor to Basel over the last few years, and have stayed in many hotels, all of them good, but Hotel Basel stays top of the pile. I like the genuine warmth from...
