Hotel Basel is located in the Old Town where cars are not allowed. There are many restaurants and shops in walking distance making it very convenient. The room was spotless and well appointed with good reading lamps and a modern bathroom. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

We arrived in Basel very late I the evening without accommodation. We were travelling with 2 children and needed to find something quite quickly. the receptionist went out of her way to find us a room that would work for our family which was clean, roomy and had everything we would need. Great location and friendly staff.

Rooms are on the small size scale. You need to open the window to be able to stop the incessant nauseating air condition. Of course, you then get woken up by the local rubbish collection cart at 6 am. At reception you get told, the contents of the minibar is free - that is a small coke, two small bottles... More

Booked a junior suite which turned out to be a very large and nice room by European standards. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet. The wifi did not work the first day but after we reported it to the front desk it was fixed. The mini frig came with the room cost and breakfast was good. Only quality gaps... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in August, and we were impressed with the hotel and the staff. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. We really hated to leave!

Stayed for two nights based on the rate from hotel.com. Rate did not include breakfast. Went from the train station to the hotel by cab. Room was pretty good, but there was a constant "hum" which was a bit annoying. Room came with a free glass of processo at the bar, and the contents of the mini bar was included.... More

Stay in Hotel Basel to celebrate my recent wedding anniversary. The hotel made it very special by decorating our room in red roses, Swiss chocolates & free drinks on the night of our arrival. Staff were friendly & welcoming. Brilliant locations to explore Basel, close to river Rhine and right in the heart of old town. Highly recommend to anyone... More

This hotel is lovely and the staff go the extra mile to make your stay special. The room was large (we upgrade) with good air conditioning which was important for the hot August day. The linens were scrumptious.

A perfect location which is close to the river and in the old township. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. A cute hotel, with very helpful staff. We had left a backpack in a taxi and they were great at phoning the taxi companies and helping us get it returned. Highly recommend it.
