“Just one of the best stays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The location is just perfect, you can walk down the street to the main square, perfectly located for everything. Also the service is nice, and on top if you come really late you have a free beer in the fridge.

When I arrived from the airport, I thaught, Oh my god, this must be a tiny with a minimum service hotel. However, I was very glad and surprised by the location, by the comfortable rooms, also by the nice and helpful hotel staff. It was the perfect hotel for me where to stay for 5 days business Trip. You can go out and walk, have dinner, or a drink nearby.
I will definitely come back!

Room Tip: I was at the third floor, nice view of the street

The hotel is located in the pedestrian area, but we got it by car and left the car in a garage of the hotel.
Market Square (the center of the ancient city) is 100 meters far from the hotel.
Very quiet location.
Rooms furniture are very modern, elegant and essential, but there is everything you can need.
Good restaurant in a covered terrace outside the hotel.
Should we go again to Basel, we certainly will go to Basel Hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights and it was a very nice place. The only problem was the size of the room it was very small, but clean and comfortable. It has a great location and an easy walk to the river and a lot of good places to eat. The breakfast at the hotel was great with a good selection of food.

This hotel isn't the flash revolving door of the Swiss hotel BUT it delivers a comfortable stay, in a relaxed pleasant hotel and in a convenient location.
If I had one critism it would be the curtains are not thick enough but this can be said of many a hotel.
