We stayed here for four nights and loved everything about it! First, the staff of young ladies was awesome...very helpful and accommodating no matter your request. The room and bathroom were exceptionally spacious for European hotels...king size, comfortable bed, tub and shower, lots of closet/drawer space, good air conditioning and perfect location. Very nice breakfast buffet on the top floor.... More

The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the main station on a No 30 bus. Show the driver your hotel booking and the ride is free. Excellent check in, very friendly and helpful staff. Room was excellent and WiFi also. Breakfast was very good ask them for different eggs if you don't want the scrambled on the buffet. I... More

We received a very warm welcome from the staff at Hotel Spalentor. We were a couple of hours early but that was not a problem for the staff because our room was ready. Our room was on the top floor and was very clean with all the comforts of home. Breakfast was very enjoyable and a good start to the... More

I'm not sure I would qualify the Spalentor as 4 stars, but I had a nice stay. First of all, the service was exceptional - friendly, efficient, thoughtful, proactive etc. Everyone I encountered was fantastic! When I got off the elevator I was a little concerned by the condition of the hallway (it looked a bit shabby), but my room... More

I stayed here with cousins and we felt pampered with soft robes and slippers. The lobby is nothing to speak of, but fresh apples and helpful staff made us feel welcome. They provided fresh milk each evening for my cousin's evening medication. The rooms are spacious, clean, with comfortable beds and comforters; and the breakfast is expensive but with a... More

We stayed at the Spalentor for 5 nights during which time our son got married at a venue near Basel. We travelled as a family and had three rooms. All the rooms were spacious, clean and very well appointed. There were hairdryers, coffee machines, room safes, mini bar, air conditioning, wi fi and even a plastic duck in the bathroom!!!... More

Excellent small hotel. We stayed one night whilst travelling through Switzerland and would thoroughly recommend it. Friendly efficient service, comfortable and well appointed room and a good base to go into the centre of Basel

Hotel is nicely positioned, close to all the main sightseeing, but also far enough away to be in a quiet area. The building may not look modern from the outside but inside it is really well finished with lovely big rooms and fantastic customer service. Use the hotel bikes for an easy cycle round the city. Breakfast is simple and... More

Four nights at this hotel was a delight. Friendly, helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble, an additional kettle, iron and ironing board, general advice and the booking of taxis to our wedding venue. Clean, modern, spacious, well equipped bedroom and free internet connection. Games room, mini-gym and pleasant breakfast room, made for a very nice experience. There was a... More
