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

A fantastic hotel. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a junior suite. The room was spacious, light and beyond our expectations. A great location and fantastic, helpful and friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will most definitely be planning a return trip to Basel with Hotel Spalentor my first choice of accommodation.

The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The tram was right outside the door so it was easy to get to the heart of things in 5 minutes. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. Our room was clean and well laid out.

The building of the hotel is an ugly 70s building. Interior is modern and comfortable but does not deserve 4 stars. Our room was situated facing the road. On a holiday easter weekend one can hear the trams and buses. Also the rooms are not sound proof at all. Breakfast is a nice spread but the waitress seems to want... More

Nothing remarkable from the outside, but warm and quaint on the inside. This is not a big international chain hotel, but does a great job welcoming guests and providing great customer service. The room was large and well appointed, the bathroom was rather small. The hotel is located close to grocery stores and multiple restaurant options. The gym was small,... More

A wonderful hotel close to downtown Basel. The personel was extremely friendy and helpful. The room was spacious and perfect.You can visit everything by foot. And they give you a ticket with which you can use the Tramway and bus free of charge. Wifi also included and pretty fast.

Well located hotel. Spacious, comfortable room with excellent bed and very quiet considering it was very close to the lift. Not much hot water at 4.30am when I had to get up for my flight. There's a good conference room on the ground floor. The bar and public area are small but functional. The hotel staff are excellent -friendly and... More
