We traveled from Denver to Basel a day earlier than our river cruise started to give ourselves a day to adjust to the time difference. The Hotel Spalentor was a haven after a long day of travel, especially with the concierge's dinner recommendation that took us just a couple of blocks from the hotel to a delightful Swiss-food restaurant where...

We had a great stay at this hotel in February. We were there for a medical trip. The gals at the front desk were incredibly kind and helpful! It was convenient to walk to the hospital and to the public transit stop. There are many good restaurants in walking distance. The breakfast was great! It is also nice to have... More

Stayed one night. Excellent welcome, clean and very comfortable hotel. We enjoyed a good breakfast. Location by interesting old city gate. Close to tram and bus routes (bus route 30 goes to both the SBB station and the Badischer Bahnhof across the Rhine.

Very convenient location, a short bus ride from the train station and walking distance or a short tram ride to the city center. Large comfortable room but I can't say the same thing about the bed. It was not really comfortable. The wifi connection was rather sketchy. Overall, I would recommend it for a short stay in Basel

Just a stone's throw from the old town of Basel this hotel is a gem. Spotlessly clean, lovely smiley friendly and helpful staff, free wifi, a free public transport ticket and a great breakfast. Modern, comfortable and has a little garden to sit outside. Will definitely be staying again to visit family in Basel. A short walk to the Brausebad... More

Our room was large and nicely furnished. The hotel staff are helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The hotel is well located within a very short walk to the Allstatd and near the no 30 bus stop which runs to the two main stations. We would certainly stay here again.

We chose the Hotel Spalentor for it proximity to the River Cruises. Perfect! Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is adjacent to the entrance to the Old Town - a delightful area with interesting shops and good choices of restaurants. Public transportation ( light rail) is across the street. You can walk or take transit to the River Cruise docks.... More
