the Hotel is situated within 10 to 15 minutes to the sights. In the Neigbourhoud there's the Church of Saint Peter and the 'Petersplatz'. The so called 'Spalentor' and the Botanical Garden are only a 10 min Walking distance. The River 'Rhein' is just round the Corner. The Hotel is good to reach by the "Tram" Number 8 direction 'Wheil... More

If arriving by train, it is a tram/bus ride to the town centre and then a 10 minute walk up few hills and streets. Keep this in mind if you have lots of luggage or are not very mobile. Maybe a taxi from the station. The hotel is quite characterful and on a relatively quiet street above the old town.... More

Good location - near old town center (10 minute walk) - Morning breakfast was good and complete with eggs if you wanted - The tram line was a 4 minute walk and in Basel you can get to most of the city with tram/bus quickly. Bed room was large and comfortable. Getting to our room was interesting - up 2... More

Hotel Rochat is just outside the hustle and bustle of old town district of Basel, but since the city centre is not too big, and the public transport system is Swiss solid, it is a good place to stay. We had, without asking, an upgrade to one of the newer rooms in the attached house, which was spacious and comfortable,... More

Our room was pleasant. The morning breakfast was very nice. The hotel was in a good location . We used public transportation to see the city. All in all, I would recommend this hotel. The staff was helpful. We were there in April of 2016.

We spend just one night in this hotel but we were absolutely happy. The rooms were clean and nice, staff was friendly. Bathroom was also really good. Breakfast was 16 chf / person, but really huge variety and delicious food. Recommended place!

I don't know why this hotel only has a two star listing because it is definitely of better quality. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The location is just a short walk from the main centre and in love historic surroundings. There is a flea market in the nearby square every Saturday. And opposite is the quaint Cafe Hebel... More

The location is fantastic. To start, I'll point out the access of the hotel from the main square, we first arrived via the steps. I'm not going to lie, I'm not fit, it was hard work! My husband tutted and barely even noticed them though! However we realised that if you walk towards the steps but turn right, past the... More

We'd booked this hotel based on previous reviews stating it's great location and we weren't disappointed. It is within easy walking distance of all the main sights and while we were there, the Christmas markets. We were warmly welcomed by the reception staff when we arrived at just after 9pm and directed to our rooms, which were spaciously and looked... More
