Great for a stop over,, the hotel is slightly dated but scrupulously clean with crisp clean bedding and towels, free wifi and a tram pass, free parking 3 mins away in a secure indoor car park. The restaurant is Indian cuisine and is one of the very best we have tasted. Management were attentive and polite, all in all a... More

I stayed here because the hotel where I usually stay was fully booked. It's similar to other 3* hotels in Basel - basic, nothing bad but nothing to get excited about either. The location is good and in walking distance to a lot of restaurants. The Indian restaurant which is in the same building does excellent Indian food; breakfast is... More

the hotel is simple, clean, and friendly staff, rooms are large and basic but the bed was really good and gave a good night sleep, I would stay away from rooms with a window to the street I found the noise to be a problem, but the location was great and allowd a nice walk around the old city

Not a luxury hotel, but confortable and very well located for somebody who wants to visit and walk through the old city. Friendly front desk. If you stay at the hotel you can get a reasonable price at the restaurant (Indian food).

Stayed in the Spalenbrunnen for 2 nights in a 4 bed room. Was a bit worried what I had booked when I read the reviews, but was very surprised when we arrived at the hotel. Rooms are very dated and needs an update but both bedroom and bathroom were clean and tidy and beds comfortably with plenty of room. You... More

I can't say I recognize the awfulness and shabbiness mentioned in the comments below, I spent a rather restful night here, on a reasonable mattress with clean bed linnen and a medium soft pillow (but not lumpy and horrible). The room is indeed a bit dated, with threadbare curtains and doors which don't close properly (warped wood), handles falling off... More

Personnel absent when needed. Restaurant dirty and disgusting, personnel with dirty hands. Rooms much too noisy. Bathroom extremely dirty, (look at the ceiling it is worst), inacceptable ! Feelings of insecurity due to the kind od people met there.

A business trip taken at short notice found us here as everywhere else was booked. I can see why there was availability here. It's pretty grim. Yes it was cheap - no it was not cheerful. Big bedroom but everything cheap and nasty. Tv didn't work - lots of exposed cables and a bathroom that was probably fitted out 30... More
