Although we stayed only for a few hours to sleep there, from what I managed to see I would recommend it. It is centrally located, the room was very very big and very very clean, the staff very helpful.

A change of hotel plans for us, prior to a River Cruise of the Christmas Markets. We wanted to be more centrally located to the Town Center, as opposed to across the other side of the Rhine. This hotel may not be ranked five star but then it is not priced as a five star so keep that in mind.... More

The Hotel Rochat was perfect for us. The personnel are friendly and helpful. We had a spacious room, with comfortable beds (two twins) and very modern shower/bathroom. Situated near the university, right on the edge of the old town, we could visit most sites on foot, enjoying the cozy streets of Basel and the Christmas market. A great address to... More

We stayed for 4 nights on a city break to this gorgeous medieval city. The hotel is well- located and is very quiet- despite there being an autumn fare on the doorstop during the time we were there. Our room was nothing special but large and comfortable. I was horrified to find a woman with a dog at breakfast that... More

Hotel Rochat is located next to the University as well as a church. It is a pleasant hotel that does not oversell. For the star rating a good breakfast is provided from 06:30. I stayed in the annexe, which reminded me of a priest seminary. The room decoration is spartan indeed, the TV so high up on the wall that... More

This is a truly charming and pleasant spot for a family with several children. We were given a lovely room at the top of the hotel with lots of room for kids. Because of the beams (watch your head!) the beds feel a little bit private from one another, which is nice, the bathroom is huge and there are many... More

We stayed at Hotel Rochat for three nights and were delighted with the facilities. Our room was brand new and the fittings and furnishings were all first class. Breakfast buffet, at an extra charge, provided a very good range of choices and really set us up for the day. WiFi was good and we were able to have boarding passes... More

This hotel is absolutely superb. Just back from a weekend away with 5 of my friends. The place is spotless can't believe this is a 2 star. Totally recommend and would go back in a heartbeat. It's close to the centre of Basel. I couldn't have asked for better. The girl on reception was very helpful as was the young... More

We spent a night in Basel en route to Lake Garda after getting a ferry from Ireland to Cherbourg. We arrived at 10pm approx. and were checked in by a pleasant receptionist. We were given a large room towards the rear of the hotel which was newly built! Room was amazing with huge bathroom (with rainfall shower!). The curtains were... More

We spent one night in this hotel during August 2014. It is located near central Basel and a short walking distance from everything. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I would be glad to stay there again the next time I visit the city.
