“Loved it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

My room was very clean and proper. All the staff were young and friendly. The breakfast was good. Good internet connection. A little awkward to get to the rooms. For certain rooms you have to take two elevators; at first it's a little confusing. You are in easy walking distance to everything there is to do in Basel.

The good things are that the location is perfect for visit the city, the room was big and very clean anc the service was very very gently.
The bad things were that the sleep was terrible, cause the temperature of the room that was too hot to sleep with the blanket maked for temperature of -10°C !
The day after the first night we asked to change the blanchet with one lighter and they did it, but it was still hot.....
Our room was one of the facade without a real window but only an historic stained glass window, from which it was impossible to see out.

I recently stayed at The Hotel Rochat while in Basel for the Christmas Market. The room was small and cozy. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and the bathroom was updated. This hotel is a result of the joining of a couple different buildings making levels uneven and access interesting, if you have any trouble with stairs, you should advise reception when making your reservation. The great thing about his hotel is the staff, they are really exceptional. It was a short walk to the center and the hotel is also near the tram so it's easy to get around. I would absolutely stay here again when I'm next in Basel.

The hotel staffs were nice.
it was in a good location although it took us a while to find at first.
The room was clean but the blanket was a little rough and make us feel a little itchy. Not too bad though.
The bathroom was spacious with two sinks, a big tub, and plenty walking/standing area.
It could be better if some spaces were allocated to the bedroom. it was not too small but compared to the bathroom, I think we need some more space in the bedroom area.
Overall, this is a good place to stay during your trip in Basel.

Great rooms, newly renovated and very quiet. Good location near the center of Basel. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making good suggestions during our stay in Basel. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is by the university area, good neighborhood, and convenient to the excellent Basel tram network. The rooms are large and so are the bathrooms - although the shower was one of the tiniest I've seen. Very useable, but maybe 'cozy' is more descriptive. Furnishings modern, think nice IKEA styling. Not soundproofed, but this doesn't appear to attract rowdy people - there's a no-alcohol policy in the hotel, meaning they have none to serve you in the minibar or restaurant. Nice reception area. Spotlessly clean in rooms and public areas. My one surprise was the food costs in Switzerland - and that our breakfast wasn't included (17.90 Swiss francs for our stay) because we didn't book direct from them. And I'm positive (but can't prove) that their own booking site was down when we booked over the summer. So research, research, research. Food prices are high in Basel, be prepared. The transportation pass issued by Basel hotels are a welcome perk - take those trams! And learn which are streets and which are staircases on the map the hotel (or tourist office) provides. The Christmas Markts were fun and well within walking distance from this hotel. Note this hotel is right by a church with lovely (and loud) bells that ring the hours as well as a rousing 'get up' sequence just before 8.

Room Tip: If you're an early riser, ask for a room at the back of the hotel. The early morning (we were t...

"+" Good, central location. Helpful and friendly staff. Cleanness in rooms. Breakfast was OK. You get Mobility Pass for a transport. They let us in 3 hours before the check-in time! They booked a taxi for us and told the average price.

"-" Bad noise isolation, bad ventilation in the bathroom, small elevator, expensive breakfast - 16CHF, the pillows were terribly thin!

I'd recommend this hotel.
