Virginia Beach, VA
Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

This is a pretty nice hotel. I admit I was worried when I got off the elevator and saw two large bathrooms in the common hallway...didn't I have a bathroom in the room? The answer is that there are barrooms in the rooms! Breakfast was simple but delicious. A fairly big negative is the parking. It really doesn't exist and...

Our room was simple but nice, with faux wood, and not carpeted floors. The bed was great! The one negative was our bathroom was too small. But we were amazed at how clean the hotel, and all of Basel was. And the hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful.

Light airy large room with a superking bed. Great location within walking distance of the river and old town. Only critisicm is the curtains in our room were slightly too short allowing the early morning sun in too early!

The hotel is located close to the university and just outside the old city gate after which it is named. It is next to a busy road but there is no real traffic noise inside. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable with good bathrooms. Staff are professional and efficient. Breakfast is served in a top floor setting - good....

We stayed for a week at this small, excellent hotel. It is located across from the most scenic tor in the city and it's very easy to walk to town or take public transportation anywhere. The bus goes directly to the bahnhof and trams go anywhere you wish. When in Basel, hotels will give you a transportation pass. Use it!!...

We stayed here a couple of nights in April. The girl at the desk Amanda went out of her way to be helpful. She gave us directions several times on how to get around the city with the tram as well as the bus. The hotel provided a nice buffet breakfast each morning. The rooms were very comfortable.

Although not in the middle of the action so-to-speak the Spalentor is a well appointed choice with comfortable and spacious rooms. The Missionstrasse can be noisy so ask for a room on the parking area side. There is a nice cozy bar in the lobby and the breakfast room is spacious with an excellent choice of breakfast items. Don't forget...

We stayed here at the end of April. First off, when arriving at the airport, make sure to come out to the Swiss side (to the right) when going through customs and head to the bus.

“Views and noise out front. They can get warm from the afternoon sun, but the hotel staff will close curtains for you.”

“The hotel is on a corner, so I'm not sure you would find a room that doesn't face a street, but if there is one, I would opt for that if you need real quiet when you sleep.”

“Ask for a room off the street - they are on a busy street and the noise may interfere if you are a light sleeper.”
