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

Not much positive about this hotel. Conveniently located in a street near the main train station which had plenty of bars and restaurants, but the room was basic and did not justify its price. The big negative was the wooden floors which meant that guests moving about, and talking loudly (after midnight) made sleep impossible. The staff were polite and... More

Hotel Basilea was perfect for my business trip (6 nights)! I compared it to several local options and booked it based upon its proximity to the Old City/River, Central Station, Hauptbahnof (main train station), and free wifi and breakfast included in room rate. I stayed in a single room on the 3rd floor. Here's a quick rundown: a) friendly greeting... More

Based on the reviews, we didn't go with much expectations but was pleasantly surprised. Our request for early check in was granted and receptionist spoke English well. Check in was a breeze and room was wide enough for 2 people with large trolley bags. Breakfast was basic but sufficient and ample so no need to worry about losing out. Location... More

Basilea is a rather tired hotel and in need of upgrading. Rooms clean, but not inviting. Breakfast unimpressive. Staff and service attitude generally not impressive. There are a number of better alternatives around within close proximity and comparable prices.

We arrived at the Zurich airport. It was a very easy train ride to the main train station in Zurich. It's about a 10 to 15 minute easy walk to the hotel. The hotel is located in a very good location for restaurants, bars, shopping. Our room for 3 adults was located on the 2nd floor which also had elevator... More

I had a one nights stay here and would have loved to stay longer. A friendly reception desk with English speaking staff, very helpful. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but very tasty. One downside for me was the bed frame was metal and has quite sharp corners which I caught my leg on. The bed was... More
