We needed a place for one night in Basel before boarding a Viking River Boat headed to Amsterdam. We stayed at the “Hotel City Inn” which is located within the Hotel Euler but for all practical purposes, you are in the Euler. Since we were arriving from Paris on the TGV, this hotel is in a great location a short walk from the Basel train station. Some might consider the tram plaza out front of the hotel to be distracting but we did not. The Euler is a quiet, classy hotel with an incredible staff. The food in their small restaurant is a bit over-priced in my view, but it was very good. What separates the Euler/Hotel City Inn from their peers is their staff. Through my own clumsiness, I took a header off of the front steps of the hotel. I suffered multiple fractures of my wrist, facial lacerations and a split lip. The hotel graciously paid for the ambulance ride to the hospital, the taxi ride back and the taxi to the Viking River Boat the next day. The office staff assisted my wife so she could fax my X-rays and medical reports to my physician in the U.S. Some might view these actions of the Hotel staff as “preemptive” to head off possible litigation but I see it a different way. I came away with the impression that the staff of the Hotel Euler truly cares about their guests and will go out of their way to make their stay as memorable as possible. I would stay at the Euler/Hotel City Inn in the future and highly recommend this hotel.
