“Love this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I came to Basel for Swiss indoors tennis championship. Got a double room because I'm claustrophobic and it was nice size, modern, very comfortable. Free mini bar stocked with beer, coke and mineral water. Free! Tram (also free) was a short 2 block walk away, with stop right in front of the stadium. Front desk was very helpful.(I have a lot of questions on how to get places, weather,etc) Located in Old Town, lots of nearby shopping,museums and cafes. Breakfast buffet was good and fresh, located in basement in rock lined barrel vault with lighting that made it feel spacious. And free Wi-fi with easy access. When I come again for tennis I will make sure to stay here.

I really liked this hotel.
It was clean (of course - its Swiss !), the staff were really nice and the receptionist even gave me a complimentary box of chocs as it was my birthday the previous day .
Nice central location, modern functional room and everything one needs for a business trip.

5 stars.

I travel for business and the central location of the Hotel was great for both commuting to the office as well as for being right in the middle of the Markplatz for shopping in the evening. Don't forget the shops close early except on Thursdays when they're open later. Only downside to the hotel was, for me, the bed. It's a platform bed, with a single mattress that I found a bit on the thin side. Otherwise, it was a nicely-sized room, well appointed, and I'd recommend it to anyone whether travelling for business or pleasure.

The room had an intimate feel to it, with red walls, red striped curtains balanced by neutral colours. Everything in the room had been thought through and worked. Staff were helpful, breakfast choice was good and fresh. It is close to Town Hall and walking distance from virtually anything a tourist would like to visit. Hotel suggested taking a tram trip with a free pass they gave us, the trip covered a large part of Basel and was most enjoyable.

Room Tip: As the hotel is placed in quiet side streets, I do not think there is a problem with noise from outs...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Basel Hotel. The service at the front desk was superb, the room was very comfortable and immaculate, and the location was excellent. We felt the buffet breakfast was a bit pricey so we opted for the continental breakfast instead.

This is an excellent hotel - clean, friendly staff, and centrally located. The breakfast is wonderful and the staff were very nice. I travel quite a bit on business and I really liked this hotel and would highly recommend it.
