I had a great experience for the 2 nights I was in this Hotel. I was so surprised and pleased when at the check in I got a travel pass for the whole duration of my holiday. The people were very friendly and the room were clean and decent. The position is pretty convenient. Definitely worth the prize

Friendly staff. Nice beds. Some silverfish in the bathroom though. If one is just looking for a bed and a breakfast without too much flair this hotel is a reasonable choice. Brekfast is basic and of good quality. Parking is CHF 25,00 a night.

This modern, but aging hotel is located right across the street from the exhibition center which is extremely convenient if you happen to be in Basel for a convention. If you happen to visit Basel as a tourist, I recommend to book a more centrally located hotel on the other side of the Rhine. I ended up staying at this... More

Stayed one night just after major heat wave in July 2015. Room was still very warm and had to keep windows open which faced busy street and cafes. All single rooms do face the main street. Room was clean but rather old and small, particularly the bathroom. Staff were very nice and professional and breakfast was decent.

I only stayed here as my usual hotels were booked out. I wasn't expecting much but the room was actually very spacious with a balcony and a great view of the exhibition center. Everything was very clean & the bed was extremely comfortable. It was a very comfortable stay.

I had the "pleasure" of staying an entire week in this hotel during an exhibition. Although the hotel rates seems to be normal "economic" for Swiss conditions, during the exhibition they charged CHF 250/ night incl breakky for old rooms. When you compare this rate to the RAMADA and the PULLMAN which are around the corner this is far too... More

I just needed an overnight stay and the other hotels in the area were very expensive so I went with what was left at Hotel Alexander, the single room. It was actually quite cute, like a dorm room, and really had all I needed for an overnight stay. The bedding was nice and the shower had good pressure and all... More

My friend and I spent the night of the 15/07/2015 in this hotel, after reading some of the reviews we were a bit unsure (DON'T BE), the room was VERY clean complete with en suite bathroom (with a bath), it was a very large room with a balcony on the 5th floor. The breakfast is the German styled continental with... More

The wifi is good only in the lobby or maybe other room. But they gave me 412 which is terrible room with bugs, no A/C, no wifi connection. I will never come again.
