My friend and I stayed here end of Aug 14 for 2 nights before a cruise and were extremely satisfied with location, the staff and the stay. The room was small, clean and well appointed. Lovely bedding and good bath linens replaced daily. Unfortunately the fridge was warm, but the staff got ice for us from a nearby hotel. The... More

My visit to Basel Switzerland was for 3 weeks! The hotel location is very central to everything! The staff couldn't do enough for us whilst there! Hotel itself was always clean and well presented! Will definitely visit again and stay there!

Hotel is located right next to SBB (Train Station). It is also next to the Tram stop therefore getting around Basel from this hotel is very easy. The bus to & from the airport stops right outside SBB main entrance which is like a two minute walk from this hotel. I really liked the hotel because the room was very... More

As others have reported, the hotel is in an excellent location, just a block from the main train station and steps from the tram station. We had booked an economy room with twin beds and were upgraded to a room with a double and a twin bed and facing the park across the street. Even though we were in a... More

The Metropol provides great service in a convenient location (train station, public transport, zoo, park, bakeries restaurants and fast food), With the included city transport pass and many tram and bus lines one can ride everywhere or just on return after a great walk. We were provided a room of greater size than booked. Lovely bathroom as well. One caveat... More

Excellent location, very very close (just few steps) to the Basel's main station (SBB Hauptbanhof) and a tram station where something like a dozen lines pass. Pleasant view on a green park ahead. The staff has been very kind and gentle. Our accomodation, at the fifth floor, was absolutely comfortable and even large for a couple. Quiet and still at... More
