We really enjoyed Basel with 16 of our friends as a result of staying at the Spalentor Hotel. Close to everything in old Basel -- with the help of the great public transportation and free tickets the hotel provided. Breakfast was wonderful and the rooms luxurious.

My wife and I and another couple spent two nights at the Hotel Spalentor. It was ideally located for walking around Basel and the tram stop, which was easy to use, had a stop directly across the street. The entire hotel including the lobby, other public areas, stairwells, and, most importantly, the guest rooms were immaculately clean and what you... More

Great hotel perfectly located for the sights of Basel. Staff helpful and happy. Rooms pretty big and clean. Fabulous scrambled eggs for breakfast. Although wasn't able to find any English channels on the TV, all in Germany (but there is a DVD player). Local cafes / bars mainly in German but if you ask they have an English menu or... More

Hotel Spalentor was really welcoming. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful, recommending places for us to visit for dinner and drinks. We received a free room upgrade, as many others have mentioned here. The room was spacious and clean, however there was no bath tub as I would have expected from an upgraded room. All other amenities were there... More

extremely well equipped, great bed, clean and efficient. I will stay there again. I was impressed that I left a memory card there and they took the trouble to find it and return it to me. My girlfriend loved the bed. VERY cozy.

my only complaint would be the breakfast starting only at 7:00, which is quite late for business tavellers sometimes - besides this nice hotel with tram station next to it so you're quickly either at the main train station or the city

While it doesn't look like much from the outside, the rooms inside are modern and spacious. (especially after a river cruise) Good location next to public transport which is noisy during the day, so if you're jet lagged try for a room not next to the tracks. While the bathroom was spacious, a shower curtain would work better than the... More
