Hotel doubled it's rates for the final. Football fans being ripped off again! Room was basic but clean with a warm shower. Hotel is next to tram lines so can be noisy if you like the windows open. Location is great for walking into the old town and is handy for number 30 bus to railway station. The Spalentor gate... More

The service was excellent here and the hotel manager helped out with anything I asked for including directions to various places and a free transportation pass. The rooms were small but that didn't matter very much to me.

The restaurant is Indian cuisine and is one of the very best we have tasted. Management were attentive and polite, all in all a... More

I stayed here because the hotel where I usually stay was fully booked. It's similar to other 3* hotels in Basel - basic, nothing bad but nothing to get excited about either. The location is good and in walking distance to a lot of restaurants. The Indian restaurant which is in the same building does excellent Indian food; breakfast is... More

the hotel is simple, clean, and friendly staff, rooms are large and basic but the bed was really good and gave a good night sleep, I would stay away from rooms with a window to the street I found the noise to be a problem, but the location was great and allowd a nice walk around the old city

Not a luxury hotel, but confortable and very well located for somebody who wants to visit and walk through the old city. Friendly front desk. If you stay at the hotel you can get a reasonable price at the restaurant (Indian food).

Stayed in the Spalenbrunnen for 2 nights in a 4 bed room. Was a bit worried what I had booked when I read the reviews, but was very surprised when we arrived at the hotel. Rooms are very dated and needs an update but both bedroom and bathroom were clean and tidy and beds comfortably with plenty of room. You... More

I can't say I recognize the awfulness and shabbiness mentioned in the comments below, I spent a rather restful night here, on a reasonable mattress with clean bed linnen and a medium soft pillow (but not lumpy and horrible). The room is indeed a bit dated, with threadbare curtains and doors which don't close properly (warped wood), handles falling off... More
