This hotel is next to the Spalentor gate left over from the old town walls at the top of the hill going up from downtown Basel. As such, the hotel is fairly convenient if you don't mind walking up and down hills. The hotel is fairly modern, certainly clean and reasonably pleasant, though not special. The rooms are modern and... More

In my mind the Hotel sits between a very good 3 star and 4 stars. There are lots of positives and some small areas for improvement, namely around interior decoration. I think it's best to start with positives. Service was high quality, friendly and multi lingual, top notch. We paid for breakfast as there is nothing open in Basel on... More

Lovely hotel in an excellent location, especially if you are visiting the university. The city centre is only a short walk away. The staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast is good. If I had to moan, it is that you cannot get any Wi-Fi reception I rooms that end in an 8 (I was in 208) and that it... More

The Hotel Spalentor was extremely comfortable. Room size was quite large by most European standards. Everything was very clean, the showers had incredible water pressure, and the front desk service was very friendly and helpful. I also appreciated the complimentary Spalentor lip balm! :) I'll be back my next stay in Basel.

Really the best hotel in Basel in the mid price segment. Especially, the size of the rooms (30 sqm), the great breakfast (unbeatable croissants) and the little attentive thingies in the rooms and reception make this a very worthwhile stay in Basel. I can only recommend.

This is a nice hotel in an easy accessible location. Walking distance from the river Rhine.Just a few hundred meters from the trams, but you can easily walk to the city centre. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately during my stay last December the climate control was out of order. All in all, a fine place... More
