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

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...

Stayed here for two nights and it is perfectly located downtown Basel. The rooms are small, but modern. They offer unique features of giving you a pass for local transportation around the city of Basel for free during your stay. They also provide you with 2 bottles of water, a bottle of beer and a Coca Cola in the mini-bar... More

This was my 4th or 5th time to stay over in Hotel Basel, it is always clean and quiet, with the best service you could have. This could be the reason why my company (a large Swiss firm) always selectes this hotel for corporate traveling.
