Stayed here for one night driving through Switzerland. Very pleasant stay, breakfast room bright and airy. There is a courtyard beyond that looks like it would be a very relaxing spot for a coffee or aperative in the summer. We arrived late October so didn't have the weather for it. Really good spot to catch the tram. One of the... More

Really enjoyed staying in Basel...thanks to Palazzo. I had booked it for 3 nights, and the staff was really polite. Service was great, and so was the breakfast. Room had all basic amenities that one needs, and also it was conveniently located near the tram station. It was one stop to get to old town, and a few stops for... More

It is a nice hotel to stay for a couple of days, breakfast is nice. The room is a bit small but other than that everything is nice. They could upgrade to key cards from actual keys to open the doors. The staff is helpful and nice,.

Location of the hotel is very convinient - it's right near tram stop (5 minutes to old city) and 5-7 minutes on food from Basel Congress Center (if you are interested). It takes about 15-20 minutes on foot to reach old city. I had single room on the second floor. It wasn't small and had a bit small but nice... More

To appreciate the Palazzo, you need to understand Swiss restraint: the hotel is simple, but excellent in the little ways that count. We have been staying here yearly for 10 years during Art Basel. Palazzo is conveniently located, 1 tram stop from the fairgrounds, and one tram stop from the old town. The staff is delightful: friendly and helpful in... More

So. What's wrong with this actual Hotel? Nothing! BUT, read on... As I started off, the actual Hotel is great. It is very clean, well laid out, smart and boasts the friendliest reception staff in the world. If Carlsberg did receptionists...I couldn't write this review without recommending the ladies on reception. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They will... More

Simple room: single bed, desk, armoire. Nice breakfast room, and reasonable breakfast included. Convenient to the No. 1 and No. 2 trams on Wettsteinstrasse that go to the train station. Also easy walk to the Basel Conference Centre.

This hotel is well situated in Basel for public transport. In Switzerland you get free transport to help you on your way? Breakfast is good here. No evening meals available? Nice place round the corner though called the brauhouse. Only downside here is the beds. Why oh why do you have single beds.

This hotel is Swiss, so as expected it is spotless. However it is very basic. Rooms are small and the bed, cot like. TV really limited. The wi-fi is dreadful, and if you want to recharge your phone, as I guess many folks would, you will search for plug points in vain. I eventually found some located behind the bed.... More

Convenient place in central Basel. Easy to get to from the freeway, and general location is good. Room clean, but small. Breakfast is fine, but nothing to write home about. Staff friendly. Would stay again if I needed a decent cheap option for one night.
