It's 90 degrees and room has no air condition working. It's a kind of property you only want to stay to sleep but can't do that because of room temp. There are no toiletries in the bathroom. . Dirty room resembles a 25 buck interstate motel at the best for 200+ $ a night!! Avoid if you can. FYI. I... More

The rooms are small but very clean and confortable with a nice shower, very good pricefor the location, gratis internet and ticket for local transportation. The parking is not cheap in Basel but reasonable in this Hotel. Will stay there again when I go to Basel.

Stayed here with a group of friends and we ended up getting the 4 bed (actually 3) apartment which is one min walk from hotel but kind of all connected up. The apartment is really fantastic, very modern and spotlessly clean, a really nice alternative option if there are 2/3 of you. Great balcony as well. Breakfast was included which... More

This is a great place to stay if you just need a place to sleep when you are in Basel. The room reminded me a bit of a student dorm, and it was a bit noisy at night, but it was great value for the money. Easy to get around, the rooms are clean, breakfast is ok and the wifi... More

I stayed there recently and it is a good hotel. The rooms are adequate, the breakfast very nice. The only downside were that some of the rooms are situated in the courtyard, particularly when it is raining. A plus was the free wifi and free transport around the town. It is next to the Messe and there are quite a... More

Nice place located at only 4 tram stops from the city center, very closed to the expositions area. Both the hotel and the apartments are a very nice and confortable solution . Rooms are very clean with all amenitites and staff is nice and always available. truly recommended.

Staff were pleasant but disengaged, rooms have been refreshed using a dismal color palet and a DIY finish. A wall of pay and grab machines has taken the place of a manned bar, adding to the sense of alienation. Overall, if you must be very near Basel centre and nothing else is available, the Hotel du Commerce is a serviceable... More

Friendly service in a recently reburbised central hotel. On checking in you receive a free travel card valid on the lcoal buses and trams. Free wi-fi is of a reasonable speed and is available in the bedrooms. Bedroom was comfotable and of a reasonable size (with tea and coffee making facilities) - only issue was the bathroom (and tolilet) had... More

It started with the check-in. The staff was really nice and courteous, but we reserved an air conditioned room with a double bed and they took us to a room on the courtyard with twin beds. We explaind what we had reserved and they tried to take us to a room with "central air" that is not controllable by the... More

As I planned my trip to Basel in Zurich I thought finally some reasonably priced hotels. This one was slightly cheaper but claimed 3 stars and I knew the location was good near Dorint and Swissotel Hotels just opposite Messe Basel. Also just 5mins by tram to old town which was no problem. But the hotel itself... I can normally... More
