Very clean hotel. Staff were very friendly and efficient. No delays at checkout. Good selection of food at breakfast. Hotel is in a good location. The Exhibition centre is a short walk away (less than 5 minutes). The old town of Basel is only a 15 min walk or a short ride on a tram.

I had made a booking for a couple of rooms in September 2016 through hotels.com, paying a higher rate in order to be able to amend my booking. When I tried to amend my booking today, the hotel told me this was not possible due to being fully booked and their 'pricing strategy'. Now we are left with 2 alternatives:... More

Stayed here for business trip, only 8min walk to the convention Centre, 10 mins from city center. The best thing about the hotel are the staff. All are very friendly, helpful, efficient and welcoming. The comfort rooms are very large with tea/coffee facilities, sink, fridge and microwave. The air con isn't great but having a larger room helps. Excellent soundproofing... More

Overall this is a nice place to stay on a business trip. Rooms are comfortable and overall the facilities are good. The surrounding area is not the best but the town centre is a 10 minute walk away so some decent restaurants are reasonably nearby.

I stayed at Dorint around Late November in 2015. It is a business hotel where the rooms are small and washrooms are smaller. It has all the modern amenities of a 3 star hotel. The room is so small that there is no place to keep the coffee tray. It is kept on the window sill. The tea coffee condiments... More

We were impressed with the quality of the hotel and its onsite facilities. We were happy to walk 15-20 minutes across the Rhine into the city. There were lots of good eating places nearby, including the hotel restaurant. The staff were all polite, especially Jill who was very helpful. It was a lovely place and I would definitely use it...

I've been here for Baselworld just one night, along with my university's colleagues. The hotel is very big, it has a lot of rooms, which are not as large as you may expect.
