5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My son and I had an early flight into Basel, and when I arrived at the hotel at 9am, I had a room waiting for me! Certainly not the norm in the industry, it was such a welcome surprise, plus the fact that the super friendly front desk staff had upgraded us, made for a pleasant start of the day.... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the room was large, and had a very nice bathroom. The tram and buses were right outside the door. They took you anywhere you needed to go. You were given a free bus and tram pass from the hotel! The bus station was five minutes away by bus that was across the street.... More

The Spalentor Hotel is nicely situated close to the city center. We had a very comfortable room on the second floor. All employees very friendly. Breakfast nice with newspapers to choose from. Bikes could be parked outside behind a fence. Inside parking would be better especially for the more expensive e-bikes. Renovation work was ongoing but did not incommodate us.

Close to the Spalentor gate. Room was modern and spacious. Very limited parking space. They offer a park garage around the corner for CHF 15.- per day. Very friendly and helpful staff. Small bfst buffet. Little garden in front of hotel, a bit noisy due to traffic.

warm welcom, large, clean room, car park nearby. Good breakfast and walking distance from the centre. In our opinion a place where we would return in the future if we were to visit the beautiful city of Basel again.

Great little hotel. Very easy to get from Basel SBB and to the city center by foot or tram. The staff were always cheerful and willing to help. The upgraded room was very big. Breakfast was great. I would defiantly come back.

This is a wonderful hotel. We had a great room with nice, modern furnishings. It was close and convenient to everything and the staff was very helpful. If you have a car, the parking can get a bit crowded/challenging, but it did not affect our stay at all. Highly recommend!
