The Alfa Hotel in Birsfelden is a decent alternative to visit Basel when you’re on a budget. Don’t expect trendy design or great luxury but you’re only 15 minutes away from the city center of Basel. The tram does stop just in front of the hotel, so very convenient. My room was a single person room and it was pretty...

This great little hotel is definitely value for money. It has really good tram links into the centre by number 3 tram (approx 10 min's) With hotel reservations you get a free travel card for use on public transport! Will be staying here on my return visits to the city in the coming months.

If you look for a low-cost hotel outside Basel and you have a car, this hotel maybe an option for you. Has free parking and an Italian restaurant. Directly at a noisy street, but with well isolated windows.

We stayed overnight in the Hotel Alfa. We picked the hotel based on proximity to the historic city center and to the port, where we were going to catch a river boat for a cruise. The location was very convenient to the city center because there was a trolley bus that stopped immediately in front of the hotel and took...

We stayed for one night in the Hotel Alfa and it was good. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel is facing a busy street, so it was a bit noisy. The breakfast was reasonable, coffee was good and the staff friendly.

We selected the hotel in case of the location ( near to the airport). All other things were bad. All places so small. The furnitures are worn. The lights not switch on in right time in the hallway. We listening the noise of other guests, bathroom ventillator and street all night. The breakfast was poor. A bug sitting top of...

Comfortable modern room with above average space. We asked for an extra bed for our son which was provided. Nice TV and coffee machine provided. Quiet room when windows closed despite overlooking tramlines.Lovely breakfast and close to city and Bahnhof. Tram stop right outside which was convenient and free travel card was a bonus..

Good value for money, clean and very friendly staff. Simple, clean rooms, somewhat dated but with a nice coffee maker. Sufficient though nothing special, so good for passing through on the way elsewhere. Location is ok, parking for free. Tramlines right in front.
