I was given an upgrade upon arrival, perhaps because it was out of season, I did not ask: "Why?" But even if I had been staying in a standard room, I would have been just as impressed by this hotel's welcome and standards in general. Cleanliness, comfort, practicality, good value for money would be my overall view of this pleasant... More

Hotel is well located to the "old city" center, it literally begins across the street at the Spalentor Gate. Room was large by European standards, very clean and comfortable. Its located at the crossing of 2 fairly busy streets so you can hear street noise at night if you leave the window open. The staff spoke pretty good English which... More

Adjacent to the Old Town and easy to reach by bus (# 30) from both of the train stations, this hotel is a winner. The problem in Switzerland is that it is hard to find a decent hotel that isn't incredibly expensive. In fact its hard to find anything that isn't incredibly expensive! Hotel Spalentor is in the price/quality sweet... More

I have stayed in the hotel for one night, but I'm with very positive impressions, the staff was really friendly and explained all to the point. The room was really spacious and even that it was facing the main street the isolation is just great and you can't hear a thing from outside. The only remark is that even the... More

The Spalentor Hotel is ideally situated both for walking around the historic town and travelling within and beyond it by public transport. The hotel is very modern, clean and spacious with all modern conveniences. The hotel staff are extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating, and provide a very welcoming front-of-house service. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Basel... More

I'm not sure how useful my review would be since this was my first time in Switzerland, but this was a very modern and nice hotel. Great location near the Spalentor Gate and restaurants. The Wi-Fi also worked well. The only criticism I have is that the bathroom had what I think were two metal hot water pipes running vertically... More

We stayed here for a very short one night but that is all I needed to decide that a longer stay would have been excellent. The hotel is central enough to walk to the old town and all the assorted eateries and attractions that it provides. The staff were extremely helpful answering any questions that a first time visitor might... More

Staff was very welcoming and professional. The location is close to old town and comfortable for transport, good for every purpose. Hotel is not a luxury but with all necessary well kept facilities both for a tourist or businessman.

The hotel is what you would expect in Switzerland. It is clean and comfortable. It is also within walking distance to the old town. But, it is nothing unique or special. The rooms were modern, although rather stark. For the price (remembering it is Switzerland and everything is expensive), the hotel is a decent value.

Great hotel. Very comfortable beds and the rooms are kept very clean. Front desk was pleasant and professional. We had breakfast there upstairs which was so relaxing and enjoyable. Bathroom was very clean and included a hair dryer. I would highly recommend this hotel and given the chance, would stay there again. There were eight of us in total and... More
