Basel is expensive and this hotel was very cheap in comparison to other hotels in the area. We needed somewhere to crash for one night so I wasn't too bothered about not having a window etc. I was pleasantly surprised and would stay again and for longer. Not having a window was actually ok and made the room very quiet... More

I have stayed in a few Easyhotels before and so far the Basel one has been one of the best as the room came with free wifi, tram pass, which can be used to and from the airport and luggage storage. The size of the room wasn't too bad. The location was good as tram stop was just outside the... More

Perfectly located and easy to find. Rooms are compact but contain everything that you could possibly need for a brief stop in Basel. An added bonus is the free pass for the transport. No A/C so slept with the window open, which I found quite loud as the morning traffic got busier.

Staff was helpful and friendly. Bed and room clean yet bathroom floor had left over hair at the bottom of the shower floor. Extremely small bathroom and room, not a lot of moving around space. No a/c yet window opened to street for fresh air. Fairly comfortable beds. Great location to tram and hotel offers a card for free rides.... More

Easy to find, compact but comfortable and functional room that was immaculately clean. Check in was easy, and with the tram ticket you can get around easily, or get into the center with a short walk. For an overnight stay it was very comfortable and excellent value compared to what others around charge.

I booked a single room with no window. It was much larger than my single room in the London EH. It has been hot here in Basel, but the rooms with no windows seem to have better ac than the rooms with windows (my friend is in a room with a window). The reception people have been very friendly and... More

a clean and tidy hotel, small rooms but what do you expect! a 5 minute free tram ride to Novartis means this hotel is ideal for contractors and consultants working on site at the Novartis Campus. Trams are free if you are staying in a Basel hotel. Highly recommended

The easyHotel was easy to find, using the directions given on the website, and located within a reasonable distance of the town centre when using the tram. It was easy to reach whatever destination you wished within the town. We chose to stay in the "small room - no window" and were happy to find that, although the room was... More
