3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for a night as we were in cycle tour and stopped in Basel for a night. The staff was friendly, room size ok and more or less clean. Unfortunately the rubbish bin in the bath room was not emptied by the mate and therefore only 3 stars. We where able to store in a quite secure area.... More

City Centre - easy access to the whole city, free public transport, extremely helpful staff. Our stay in this hotel could not have been better. We did not eat in as we were visiting friends - and we only stayed two nights. However it is difficult to suggest any improvement in this establishment. A useful tip is take public transport...

We stayed here for only one night but we enjoyed our stay. The room is quite big, clean and quiet despite its closeness to the train and tram stations. It is close to good restaurants and shopping. Staff is helpful and friendly. We will stay again in this hotel if we get the chance to visit Basel again in the... More

This is a great option for Basel, right next to the train station. Normally I would avoid being so close to the station, but Basel is a very well connected city, and it's easy to get to the more central areas. It's also a relatively clean and quiet part of town, which is sometimes not the case near train stations.... More

Nice hotel, near central station. Good restaurant and some modern rooms. High variety in quality of rooms but on average they are nice. Take care that you do not take a room near the supermarkt, they refill that everymorning at 5 with a lot of noise.

This hotel was in a great location, opposite the station, and only a short walk into the city. The staff were helpful, breakfast good and the room was very quiet. A good choice for a city break, only ate breakfast here so cannot comment on restaurant

We decided to stay in Basel an extra night after our river cruise and were so glad we did. The hotel is located right across the street from the train station. It's an easy walk anywhere. We thought we would need to store our luggage as we arrived around 9am, but we were given a room right away. The room... More

Our son booked us this hotel as a surprise weekend. We had a standard room, but for a standard room it was very spacious. It is a four star hotel, worth every star. The hotel is central located, The bus from the airport stops in front of the hotel. Old Town is just a five minutes walk.

My mother booked this room for us, as she was coming by train and I was coming by car. It was the perfect solution, they had parking available for the hotel, and it is directly across from the train station.
