The hotel is perfect, the one person room is small but has the right size and all you need, and comfortable. the bed linen is clean, the small bathroom... More

The Hotel has a perfect location, 200 metres from public transport , the airport can be easily reached from there as well as all the city 's main attractions. Breakfast is a bit dull , only early birds get croissants. The rooms are very small, I think they're suitable for one person only and shouldn't be let as double rooms.When... More

This was my second stay at Hotel Basilea. I again stayed for 6 nights while here in Zurich on business. I selected this hotel due to its proximity to Central Station (tram), Hauptbahnhof (main train station), many local shops and restaurants within walking distance, and free wifi and breakfast included in room rate. I stayed in a double room on... More

The hotel is nicely located in the Old Town. The breakfast is alright though an earlier start (6-6:30am) would help guests more esp. if they have to leave early for a tour. There was no airconditioning or fan and I found it hot/warm during my stay. Staff are nice enough but I found the most helpful one was the lady... More

I was not planning on staying at this hotel but I had arrived in Zurich that night and my planned accommodation had fallen through. I was a late arrival and they were able to offer me a room at a very reasonable price. The staff were friendly and they allowed me to check out two hours after the usual time... More

The hotel is close enough to everything. The room was nice and clean. Also nice shower. The breakfast was very good selection and much cheaper than eating in town. We stayed one night, it was a bit expensive but it was ok for the location and breakfast and quality overall

The reception staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. My room was small but very clean. The bed was very comfortable but it felt a bit strange to have no headboard - my pillow fell off the end of the bed sometimes. It was great to have BBC channels on the TV. The simple breakfast buffet had all the basics for... More

It's just a short walk to all the sights. We enjoyed the walk along the waterways. The staff was very helpful. The night manager assisted us in making our stay very enjoyable. The downside is at night there are some seedy characters and prostitutes nearby. Very friendly but not a nice combination. Maybe this is rare but not a plus... More

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.
