The new michelin 3 star restaurant deserve a dedicate flight to enjoy. The atmosphere, tasty food and kind heart host are fantastic experience. I will definitely come back again with my family to integrate with local culture, starting with the restaurant.

My disclaimer is that I only had meals and drinks here; it was fabulous. Would love to stay next time. Very enchanting and beautiful spot on the Rhine. Central to Markplatz. I can't underscore enough how spectacular this place is. The bar area is pretty overlooking the Rhine. It's Switzerland and so it's expensive but relative given NYC or other... More

So my sister and I hadn't had a girls weekend in a while, and neither of us had been to Basel, so after looking at reviews we decided to stay at The Grand Hotel, also sealing the deal was the now 3-star Michelin restaurant (oh my goodness, more on that later). We were warmly greeted, and then presented with two... More

A unique combination of outstanding staff (mostly), beautiful facilities (rooms can be small), great location on the Rhine, outstanding food and drinks (which are very expensive). A great place to relax, be spoiled.
