I've been there in May for business. The hotel is in a very good position, close to central station and with tram stop in 2 minutes walk. It is a very standard hotel, rooms are quite small but ok for sleeping for few days. Many restaurants near the hotel also is a plus.

This is a great hotel. It's just across a short walk from the train and bus stations and the other side of the river. The room was clean and decorated nicely. The beds were comfortable and the room was at a comfortable temperature. The flooring was a type of textured vinyl, this meant people moving around on the floor above... More

The price service rate is really poor, where the room for such high price is no way acceptable. In addition contineously there are women on the street corner the whole night, which may be disturbing for many, which was for me.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights on a business trip. There is free wifi, which was great, although it was not very fast. The room was clean but a bit warm as there was no AC. There weren`t any vegetables served for the breakfast (!),

Hotel Basilea was just right. It's super clean, with surprisingly comfortable beds, and perfectly convenient to everything! Simple in design but well worth the stay given the friendly staff, convenience, and bang for your buck. The highlight of the stay was the huge, wonderful breakfast in the morning! I expected a "continental breakfast" but this went way above that standard... More

Clean, comfortable rooms. Nice sunlight on the higher floors. Walls a bit thin and floors in the hall squeak a lot. Breakfast is decent, Wifi was a little slow. At night across the street and 30m away on the corner seems to be where some "ladies of the night" hang out but didn't feel dodgy...still lots of restaurants and people... More

A friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in February. The location is wonderful and you can easily walk to many places from here and the Old Town area is so close and fun. The river is also very close. Cons: very noisy (housekeeping starts SLAMMING doors very early), and the rooms have beds that are very uncomfortable and... More

As we were travelling by train, this hotel is easily within walking distance of the railway station even whilst towing suitcases. It does help having a map before you go to prevent the rough cobblestones of the adjacent streets. All in all it was OK for the couple of nights, but we had someone doing exercises and/or moving all of... More

The location is great very close to the train station and city center, booked two nights through agoda and extend extra for night but price was increased about 30%. The hotel in general is good and cleaned. complimentary water supplied during check in only for one time. Breakfast very basic

Zurich is expensive for everything, but especially lodging. This hotel has a central location, close to train station and downtown area. Room was small, but fine for a short stay, beds comfortable, and rooms were clean. Breakfast are are basic, but good. In another city it would be way too expensive. It also is in a neighborhood that might be... More
