I'd booked a room for three nights. For CHF 310 per night the room is overpriced. It's rather small with very little luggage space. Was supposed to be a superior room but I doubt whether no. 306 allotted to me was the category booked for. Moreover there was an ugly steel tower bang outside the window totally spoiling the view....

Essentially a 3* hotel in a building which in other hands would have 5* potential. On the positive side: large modern rooms with high ceilings and friendly staff. Efficient check-in. Convenient location for the business district (20m walk to the historical part of town). But it lets itself down in too many ways. The smoky bar just inside the front... More

Last night stopover on a Great Rail Journey. Very convenient for railway station so ok for one night. Quite noisy with trams just outside the windows. For some reason we had to have dinner in the hotel next door. This was a set meal which was not very good. My chicken and potatoes were not cooked properly. However the breakfast... More

I'm a regular visitor to Basel and the Schweizerhof has become my hotel of choice. It isn't a luxury hotel but it is very functional. The rooms are relatively simple but are well set out and comfortable. Swiss hotels have a central ironing room for the hotel and the Schweizerhof also has a central room with complimentary drinks where you... More

Conveniently located 1' walking distance from the station, and this is of course a great plus if you travel to Basel by train. But there's more to this hotel. It is simple and not surprising or fancy, but neat and clean, the room where I stayed was on the top floor (it was a superior room) and recently renovated -... More

I'm regularly visiting Basel for business reasons, usually for several days at the time. The Schweizerhof is very conveniently located, just across from the train station. Parking, like almost everywhere in Switzerland is costly, so I recommend coming by train. The rooms are convenient & clean - I'd say no frills. I guess a bit of pep-up on the design-side... More

The hotel location is really nice - at the Central station. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are really nice and clean. The hotel staff is also very nice. Parking is also convenient - just a couple of minutes walk.

We stayed 3 nights in a nice clean room , with a good bed and a powerfull shower. The location next to the station makes it a good starting point for exploring the city. Most of the locations to visit are on walking distance. The free of charge public transport card ( included in hotel fee) gives the freedom to... More

This hotel is close to the railway and offers a luxurious break from travelling. Rooms are spacious, staff helpful. The décor is an interesting combination of modern & classic. Breakfast is extensive with so much choice that I wished that I could stay longer. The beds were comfortable & at 2 m. in length coped for tall people. I would... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience up-to-the-minute hotel facilities in a historic atmosphere In 1864, the Hotel Schweizerhof Basel was the first hotel to open at the Basel SBB railway station. In 1896, the hotel was sold and has remained in the ownership of the same family for four generations. It underwent a total renovation in 2006 and 2009. The result is a unique, harmonious symbiosis of the historic and modern in a perfect location. Enjoy spacious, bright and tall rooms, wide staircases and artistically forged banisters, surrounded by pleasantly warm colours. Guests who value a cordial, dedicated and individual service in a modern setting with traditional roots will find the Hotel Schweizerhof Basel the perfect choice. ... more   less
