Stayed here for two nights in a triple room with my children which provided a great location from which to walk around the city and see the Old Town and walk & sit along the riverbank (and it is a great running route to run the river and cross the bridges as you come to them). There was nothing fancy... More

I booked this hotel during the major Swissbau exhibition. Hotels were full virtually everywhere and room rates astronomic.. Although the hotel was not cheap, it was very reasonable compared to other hotels during this period. Room rates reduce drastically outside the major exhibition dates. My room and bathroom was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. Although you had to pay... More

I've been in this hotel with my boyfriend for 2 nights and 3 days! The hotel is located in a tactical location, it is close to the university area that not only is one of the nicest of Basel, but it's also perfectly connected by tram with the rest of the city and markplatz is just 2 minutes walking!

My room was very clean and proper. All the staff were young and friendly. The breakfast was good. Good internet connection. A little awkward to get to the rooms. For certain rooms you have to take two elevators; at first it's a little confusing. You are in easy walking distance to everything there is to do in Basel.

The good things are that the location is perfect for visit the city, the room was big and very clean anc the service was very very gently. The bad things were that the sleep was terrible, cause the temperature of the room that was too hot to sleep with the blanket maked for temperature of -10°C ! The day after... More

I recently stayed at The Hotel Rochat while in Basel for the Christmas Market. The room was small and cozy. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and the bathroom was updated. This hotel is a result of the joining of a couple different buildings making levels uneven and access interesting, if you have any trouble with stairs, you should... More

The hotel staffs were nice. it was in a good location although it took us a while to find at first. The room was clean but the blanket was a little rough and make us feel a little itchy. Not too bad though. The bathroom was spacious with two sinks, a big tub, and plenty walking/standing area. It could be... More

Great rooms, newly renovated and very quiet. Good location near the center of Basel. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making good suggestions during our stay in Basel. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is by the university area, good neighborhood, and convenient to the excellent Basel tram network. The rooms are large and so are the bathrooms - although the shower was one of the tiniest I've seen. Very useable, but maybe 'cozy' is more descriptive. Furnishings modern, think nice IKEA styling. Not soundproofed, but this doesn't appear to attract rowdy... More

"+" Good, central location. Helpful and friendly staff. Cleanness in rooms. Breakfast was OK. You get Mobility Pass for a transport. They let us in 3 hours before the check-in time! They booked a taxi for us and told the average price. "-" Bad noise isolation, bad ventilation in the bathroom, small elevator, expensive breakfast - 16CHF, the pillows were... More
