We were sad that we were only able to spend 1 night at the Hotel Spalentor two weeks ago. The staff is very friendly and we received a free upgrade to a spacious suite. Bathroom was also a good size. The location is perfect for getting around the city. Walking distance to many sites and right by public transportation if... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights. The people are really friends and we got a room upgrade. Breakfast is really good and the hotel is at walking distance from the main attractions (xmas market, etc). They gave us free public transportation tickets for the time we were there! They offered a glass of champagne and cookies at the... More

We spent one night at Hotel Spalentor following a river cruise last week (Dec 15). We arrived before our room was available but the front desk staff invited us to have breakfast upstairs, which was wonderful. (And,since we left the following morning at 4:30am, we were unable to partake of again). The hotel is in a wonderful location - very... More

We arrived early so just left bags ready to set off for a wander around Basel, the reception staff were extremely helpful in highlighting places to visit and lunch recommendations. The complementary travel pass which allows free use of all buses and trams is a fantastic idea, and the public transport in and around Basel is so frequent and easy... More

Spent a long weekend in this hotel and it was a fab place. It was easy to get to. Euro airport bus 50 to the train station (SBB), then the number 30 bus from just across the road. Whole process took about 20-30 minutes. Lena swiftly answered my email before leaving home regarding this (but it's also on their website).... More

Visiting the Christmas Market in Basel, I had a very pleasant stay in this small and comfortable hotel across the street from the old Spalentor city gate. Excellent breakfast buffet. Free wifi. Professional and friendly staff. Very modern, well-equipped, clean rooms with mini-bar, a coffee machine that makes surprisingly good coffee, and a super comfortable bed. There is also small...
