We stayed at Hotel Basel for two nights prior to a river cruise and picked it based on reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. Its location in historic Marketplatz can't be beat. The hotel is in a very walkable area close to the Rhine with lots of charm and many shops and restaurants. The staff are... More

Hotel does not fail to please; helpful and friendly staff, always willing to accommodate requests. Excellent food, especially wide selection at breakfast time, which always feels a very relaxed affair. Well located to enjoy city sights on foot but handy tram mobility ticket included. The rooms are impressively decorated but still retain a personal feel to them.

The adventure from the airport to the trolley station and to the hotel was a bit slow going at first. Hotel Basel is tucked away in the quiet part of Basel, which was nice to start our vacation. Hotel staff were friendly and polite, helpful was the free transit card. The public transportation is amazing in this city. Very nice,... More

After a long flight from San Diego, this hotel was a welcome spot to relax and rest. Good service began even before we checked in, as my husband had emailed them before we left to make sure they would be open at night, as we were arriving after 11pm and they had answered swiftly that there would be no problem...

My husband and I spent a week in Basel, and stayed at the Hotel Basel. This was a gem of a hotel for many reasons: the staff, location, the room, the quietness and the easy access to most sites, and very close by transportation

My Wife and I had stayed at the Hotel Basel just before New Year in 2010 (for three days) and thoroughly enjoyed it. So, when we decided to have a family holiday (this time with our Daughter and my Parents-in-Law) in Basel it seemed a good option to base ourselves from. We booked a normal double room for my Parents-In-Law... More

6 of us stayed here, and all enjoyed the hotel and restaurant. Excellent location; right in the heart of the Old Town area, but quiet and comfortable. We received free 24 hour passes to the tram which is just one block away. The service was great in both the hotel & restaurant. The room was clean, updated, but with Swiss... More

I was in Basel for a week of business and found this hotel was a wonderful base. It is on the edge of the old town, a street back from the super-efficient tram system and in sight of a bus route. On checking in I was given a pass for the public transport system that lasted the length of my... More
