Staying at this hotel has been a satisfying experiece, super kind staff and nice details, like some fruit and coffee available at the hall for the customers. The only weak point is the excessive softness of the matress. All the rest is fantastic.

We stayed at the Hotel Spalentor for 6 nights. It is a lovely, modern hotel and the room size was comfortable. There are nice touches like bathrobes, a coffee maker in the room and drinks and fruit in the lobby. The breakfasts were very nice and served in a sunny room on the top floor. The staff was especially friendly... More

Overall we thought this hotel was perfect - great location, staff, comfort and clean too. There was a gym and pool table area to pass the time as well as lots of tv channels to choose from. As with most places in basel, the bar and mini bar were expensive but this goes with the territory. We actually got engaged... More

Hotel has very gut service. It is not far away from City centre and very quite also. By walking you can reach easily to "Markplatz" or by getting "Bus 30" in 3 min. you can arrive Maintrain- and busstation. When I should trip to Basel again, I would prefer to stay there again.

We were fortunate to find a spot in the small parking lot outside the entrance and upon entering were very warmly welcomed as long lost friends by L... at the front desk.

This is based on my experience staying in april 2013. Room was spacious and cosy , and was cleaned daily. Breakfast buffet was spectacular. Staff are friendly , the hotel manager even arranged food for us one morning when we had to leave very early . We stayed for around 5 nights.
