We loved the location of the hotel, easy to the trams and shops. We had lost luggage the staff worked on trying to locate our luggage beyond what I expected. I can't say enough about the staff, excellent!! I would recommend this hotel, for the staff alone. Even tho they were unable to locate our lost luggage, they did everything... More

Lovely hotel, great location, friendly, helpful, clean. No coffee in the room but a basket full of fruit downstairs. The hotel was right in the middle of the old town, bus vouchers given out to get around. Lovely little town!

I selected Hotel Basel based on Tripadvisor comments and they were spot on. Terrific location, room was quaint, and felt really good about the value for my investment. Esepcially convenient that they are within walking distance to Coop which is a Target meets grocery store in case you forgot to bring anything. Not as easy to find an alternative like... More

Booked this hotel based on 2 separate website reviews and we were more than happy. Perfect for walking everywhere, close to the market and sight seeing. No problems checking in or out. Food was great. Beds a little hard but oh well. Breakfast included and was perfect for our appetites. Has a small middle outdoor courtyard which was nice for... More

Loved Basel, loved the Basel Hotel. Thanks TA! What a cool city, and the hotel is right in the centre of the old town, vibrant during the day but quiet in the evening, and just a block from the marketplace plaza and trams. We arrived at 0930 from a Viking River cruise and were prepared to store our bags and... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my wife as it was top rated on TA. Positives, clean, pleasant staff, good location. Breakfast was okay, but not world class as described by some other reviewers. Just the basics you'd expect from a 4 star hotel. Negatives, Aircon was rubbish far too hot at night, the room was a bit small and the... More

I can't speak highly enough of the staff at this hotel. An unfortunate medical problem occurred and without the tireless help of Jessica and Tom to make phone calls we couldn't due to language differences plus other assistance we would have been in a lot of trouble. We still had 2 lovely nights there and the room was spacious, the... More

Very nice hotel in the older part of the city... First stayed here in 1984, last stay in 2014. The staff is very friendly. Hotel is updated, newer lobby and rooms have nice amenities. rooms are small, but typical at older Euro Hotels.

Great price and place. Walking around old town Basel and the river just out the door. Staff were exceptional and more than accommodating. The hotel was clean, we'll furnished and we had a quiet room looking over a charming street with many quaint shops. I would highly recommend this hotel.
