I spent here 5 nights during a business trip as usual in Basel all in the city center were full. General impression is like a small pension as the reception will not be available during the night. I asked for the superior room which was good in size. It´s not news that the rooms are small in Europe. I read... More

Having stayed here on numerous occasions over the past three years I have always found this hotel to be a great base to work from. You get a complimentary travel voucher and the tram and bus service are frequent so you are only 10 minutes from the centre. The hotel is always clean, the staff are always really pleasant and...

This hotel is complete rip off - the room was very small, very basic and I even found a beer can lurking underneath my bed. The breakfast is pitiful, again very basic and plastic. But what was most shocking was the way that the hotel owner was happy to charge us nearly 100 CHF more for our stay than what... More

Visited Basel for work during mid June. What can I say? Staff is nice, friendly, nice complimentary breakfast. Rooms, small. Shower, really small, and some rooms don't even have shower. If you go Basel for the art fair, do not stay here, it is rather far from center. Good thing is tram will take you anywhere in little to no... More

This review is about the public RESTAURANT at this place, not the hotel rooms, as we went there to eat, not to spend the night. The food at the restaurant was good, absolutely no complaints, with decent portions. I had a pizza, which had a very thin, very crusty bottom and ample toppings, and my husband enjoyed his veal steak... More

Very basic indeed. There was a small bed with ensuite bathroom and a tiny TV in the corner.

We stayed one night at Hotel Balegra. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room very clean. The bathroom was small, but functional. Breakfast consisted of eggs fried or scrambled fresh for you - if you order a fried egg you get one egg - if you order scrambled it looks like you get a little more. There were... More

Finding an affordable hotel with a family room in high season in Basel is not easy. We were looking for a comfortable budget hotel for one night, no more, and that Belagra delivered. It's not a hotel to fall in love with but if you're on a budget (with kids) it'll do quite nicely. The service was very friendly throughout... More

My husband & I stayed at the Hotel Balegra in early October 2007 with both of our parents. We were in Basel for 1 night (to fly back to US) after a 10 day trip through Austria, Germany & Switzerland. There was a conference in Basel, so hotel rooms were almost impossible to find. After a lot of searching online,... More
