This hotel has a friendly staff and its situation in downtown Basel if you look at the price I payed (65 CHF the night) is fantastic, and therefor the 3*! If you go after the room it's only 1* worth. There are no elevators up to the 3rd floor. The rooms are really clean (everything is in Switzerland), but the... More

If you want to save money this hotel can be a solution in Basel but not for demanding people. The room is really basic and bare but not dirty. Toilet and shower are outside the room and shared with other guests. There is no breakfast. There is no wifi. There is not a reception, when you get to the hotel... More

First things first: my one-night stay at Stadthof cost about 1/3 of what I would have paid at any other similarly central Basel hotel. That's worth a star all on its own. That said, know that it's SPARE: I had a tiny little twin "bed" (more of a cot, really) with a separate shared bathroom. The staff was lovely; really... More

In terms of location/price ratio, probably one of the best options available in Basel. It is smack-dab in the middle of the city bordering the old town and quite literally in walking distance of all but few of the Basel sights. In return for location and competitive prices, you get basics and basics only. Rooms are up from the restaurant... More

For where it is you can get to just about anywhere.Most of the tram routes meet here. The main shopping area for super swiss fashion indulgence is right there,and short walk to the Munster if repentence is your thing. If going for the first time it can be a bit confusing getting from SBB station to hotel Crossing a zigzag... More

This is definitely the hub of Basel, opposite the Historical museum at the Barflüsserplatz tram station, including the tram noises into late at night. Upstairs to the restaurant with no lifts. Very neat and clean room and shared bathroom facilities. Poor soundproofing; I could hear the guy snoring next door. Being a light sleeper I had to leave one day... More

The location of the hotel is ideally located relatively close not only to the SBB Bahnhof, but also to a large number of Basel's attractions. Compared to Basel hotels it is definitely cheap; however, compared with nearly anywhere else it is a rip-off for what you are getting. No matter what room you book, there will be a common shower...

The 8 rooms are located behind and above a restaurant and there's no front lobby. You feel like you're sleeping in the kitchen. It is a central location but was not the most enjoyable. Shared bathroom and shower were nothing special.

Loved the location, right at the start of the shopping street, probably best location in town. Problem is that there is no parking space close, nearest parking garage was about 10 minutes walk. Personnel is really friendly. Rooms don't have their own showers or toilets, there is one shared shower for the 8 rooms. All 8 rooms are on the... More

Very pleased with this choice. Large room, overlooking the main square, clean, historical building, good price for Switzerland.
