This hotel is situated in a good location within the old portion of Solothurn. The cobblestone streets and adjacent Baseltor (gate) provide a nice backdrop for your stay. It is just a short walk to the river. There was a large street festival going on during our stay, which made the location convenient, albeit rather noisy, especially in the evenings.... More

nice hotel, clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly. Our room was by the gate (across the street from the hotel) and noisy when the bars closed and when the deliveries started for the Saturday morning market.

I visit Solothurn a lot on business, so I have tried out a lot of the local hotels in the Area. The Baseltor is my favourite one. They keep it straight forward but high quality from the quick and easy continental breakfast with a speciality coffee of you choice to the contemporary rooms (I always go for one of the... More

Hotel in a great location, right next to the Baseltor (hence the name) and the cathedral and just a few steps from the river Aare. Due to the central location they have no private parking - just a public parking, which is very close but quiet expensive. They have no real reception area - the reception is like a mini... More

A unique and appealing historical hotel, restaurant in the heart of Solothurn's city walls. Professional and courteous staff, combined with local flare and friendliness that makes this hotel another reason to visit my favorite Swiss town. The room we were given is well furnished and ultra clean, combined with well insulated construction and a view of the town and traffic... More

Stayed there for a night, and also eat an evening meal. Small is beautiful, the building is part of the medieval houses inside the walls of the city, close to the Basel gate (hence the name Baseltor). A warm welcome, efficient reservation process, multilingual staff, simple but contemporary room (caution, you are in a typical wood&stone house). Restaurant is on... More

If you like simple but good things you'll be more than happy if you have the chance to spend a night at baseltor. Simple rooms but equipped with vintage design furniture, beds have excellent linen sheets, tea in room is great, and breakfast is basic but with a good choice of ham and cheese. Probably the best choice in Solothurn... More

Good Mediterranean restaurant in the old town with very friendly service and good atmosphere. Dishes did not respond to expectations especially desserts. Main course much too salty. Wine choice very interesting. First courses original and tasty.

Have stayed in different Solothurn hotels, and this is the best so far. Close to everything, but a bit away (150 meters) from the crowds and noise at the central square. Spacious superior double room at second floor facing the cathedral. A super-clean bathroom with a good shower cabin. However, the sink is actually placed in the bedroom, a bit... More
