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

Very very central, older style hotel, staff extremely welcoming. room on the small side but a lovely coutryard across the hall from us that we used for a late dinner and also for our breakfast. 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

Stayed at the Hotel Basel en route to Italy. Arranged through Booking.com for a classic double and business single room. Due to location of the hotel we had arranged valet parking with the front desk which meant we could drive straight through the pedestrian precinct to the front doors. On arrival, the concierge was friendly and helpful. Check in was... More

This hotel is in a great location right in the heart of the old town in Basel and is an easy walk to many restaurants, shops and sights. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. On check-in, the hotel provides what may be the most comprehensive packet I've seen with your hotel key, coupon for a free drink at... More

I normally stayed at this hotel when I visited Basel. The location is excellent. Very central and well connected. The rooms are very small. At best good for a single person. Maybe it was the cheapest room (I travelled on company expense). The service was good but each time you order room service, there is a charge levied. I sometimes... More

My wife and I stayed the Hotel Basel from June 19 to June 25. We expected it to be quite nice and we were not disappointed. Switzerland is certainly know to be clean as well as efficiently run. Hotel Basel was no exception. We were quickly checked in, the room had a charming street view and was very clean, as... More

We stayed for one night prior to going on a river cruise. So glad we made that decision. The hotel is in a wonderful location, perfect walking distance to all the central sights. The room was very nice, and the hotel staff was very helpful. Many people choose to bypass Basel on their way to a cruise, but we would... More

Our stay at Hotel Basel was very pleasant and comfortable. The room was clean, fairly big with a nice odour. The bathroom was big and clean, very nice. The reception staff was friendly, they helped us with directions and advised a good restaurant. We got a pass for a free travel on public transport. We can thoroughly recommend this hotel.
