We were scheduled for a day in Basel at this hotel. The man upon arrival was appropriately friendly. You get a free public transport ticket and free wifi. It can be a bit tricky to find your room, but they are adequately furnished. Everything was clean and it's really local. The hotel restaurant is open for breakfast, what is really... More

This hotel offers basically everything you would want in essence: a clean room with its own bathroom and a firm yet comfy bed. The breakfast is minimal, but it offers something of everything. An attempt is made at providing english style accoutrements like hash browns and baked beans, but these look a little glazed and soggy under the lamp of... More

We stayed at the Rochat as part of a family vacation/work trip and were very pleased with the hotel. While the rooms are on the small size, they were very clean and comfortable, and the location can't be beat. Located at the top of a long and charming stair just above the Markplatz, from this hotel you can be in... More

Very good location and you can explore old town by foot (also you can park car nearby in public area - it's free after 7 pm). The staff is very pleasant and informative. Also you get public transportation in city for free. Overall it's good option to explore Basel.

This hotel is located just above Basel's old town. A 5 minute walk sees you in the heart of things. The hotel is comprised of an older looking building and a more modern annex, where we stayed. The rooms in the annex are very new, incredibly spacious and well appointed. The shower was great. The staff were helpful and very... More

Historical building (note this means lifts are a bit of a mysterious business) set around a pleasant courtyard, within walking distance of the main sites and close to public transport. Room was large with a huge bathroom. Overall the decor is a little tired and doesn't show the beautiful building in its best light, but it is very clean and... More

The good: -Breakfast buffet -Wifi was fast and free -Close to public transport (Line 11 tram) -Some rooms large (others not) The bad: My bed was not comfortable and the pillow was absolutely worthless. Many things I can forgive, but an uncomfortable bed that doesn’t allow you to sleep well isn’t one of them. When I inquired of the innkeeper... More

We were in town for a meeting and only booked one night. The price was very reasonable for Basel, and the location was excellent - within walking distance of the heart of Basel and very conveniently located on the 11 tram line from the SBB station. When we checked in, we were given a pass that was good for all... More

Stayed just one night at start of our holiday. Hotel is only 15 mins taxi ride from airport which cost about 32 francs. Great breakfast too and very helpful staff. Very handy for city centre and justva stones throw from the Rhine.
