We only stayed one day while waiting for our flight. My husband wasn't feeling well and the staff was very helpful with directions to a pharmacy and letting us check in a bit early. I wandered around the area quite a bit and it was close to lots of interesting buildings, some shopping, etc. Nice restaurants and bakeries in the... More

Location cannot be beat. Easy access to old town sights and the river. One block from the Tram. Too far to walk from the train station but taxis are readily available. Plenty of interesting restaurants nearby. Friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast buffet. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet.

We stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Basel. It was lovely. We dined there for dinner on two occasions as the food was very good. I liked the lamb sausages very much. Getting the passes to the public transportation was very nice. The hotel is very well located with lovely shops nearby as well as an open air market and... More

The hotel is right in the heart of Basel old town, but also very close to the Market Square where you can take trams to various locations, including the station. No need at all to use a taxi if you're staying at this hotel, particularly as you will be given a "mobility card" on check in (as in all Basel... More

Excellent location. We had 2 rooms - one for parents and one for 2 teenagers _ and both a good size and spotless. Made good use of free mobility card to travel on the trams which were a short walk away. Breakfast delicious. Staff were all very helpful. A very restful stay

Stayed here for 3 nights, Only steps from the market square, quiet and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful with odd requests ( I needed a laundromat) Receptionist also recommended a walking audio tour as we only had a few days. Will return for a longer stay.

The location of the hotel is great. It's in the middle of the "alt stadt" and is only a short walk to the tram stop. The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak several languages. Although I did not eat there, the restaurant seemed very nice with outdoor seating. The room was not huge but was more than adequate... More

There is a market just down the street across from the town hall - where you can find wonderful cheeses, meats, olives, bread etc. Also... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel the night of June 27th before departing the next day on a Rhine River cruise. We wanted to stay in a smaller hotel that had the flavour of Switzerland and we were not disappointed. The Hotel Basel is a charming hotel right in the centre of the "Alt Stadt" (Old Town). Check-in was quick... More

Basel Switzerland was intended to be just a quick convenient stop in our train trip from Italy to France. What a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. The hotel is lovely, very modern (not something I typically like) but also comfortable and, well, cheery. The staff was wonderful and that's always draw. Our reservation included breakfast and it was... More
