My family and I recently stayed at Das Briete Hotel and found it to be a great place to stay for a day or two in Basel. It is located directly across from the tram stop and close to Old Town and the train station and free travel cards are provided which made it easy to get around town. The... More

We went here for brunch on a sunday. Make sure you do a reservation in advance. Great variety of various cold and warm dishes. Buffet always filled up and clean. Hot and cold drinks included as well as a glas of prosecco. Kids have as well a kids corner to play

Das Breite hotel is close to the city centre of basel. Not a luxury hotel but large rooms with flat screen tv and smart tv for internet. Staff are very helpfull. Drinks and snacks always available in the reception. Breakfast buffet is good with all on offer plus additional egg options(scrambled,fried,etc)

This is a nice hotel, comfortable clean and bright bedrooms which are quiet and with free wifi. The breakfast was good and plentiful. It's a bit out of the way but seeing as there is a tram stop right outside and visitors get free tram travel in the main part of the city, a voucher is given to you on... More

This is a small hotel with a wonderful breakfast. We had a three bed room that was quiet facing the rear. Rooms are soundproofed. Rooms are not fancy, but functional.

Stayed here for one night in the single room. The room is very small but very contemporary and is well designed. I stayed here during the ART Basel season so actually ended up paying more than what is normally advertised as it was a high season in Basel. The buffet breakfast had a lot of choice and was quite good.... More

DASBREITEHOTEL_Basel, Manager at Das Breite Hotel, responded to this review

Dear sriramhary Thank you for your feedback and your good rate. ARTBasel and Baselwolrd are the highest season in the year. Visit us again in the other 48 weeks of the year, when the rates are really moderate. Maybe in combination with our interesting leisure packages ART, Family, Carnival…). Härzlig DASBREITETEAM More

The main problem of this hotel is that you can't open windows in your room, so it might happen that rooms are too warm / stuffy and unfortunatelly with a sensation of fustiness when you get in. Beds are also too hard, in my opinion.

Dear ilariama11 Thank you for your feedback. Most Most of our rooms have windows you can open. When you visit us next time, please ask for a room with windows (river view, courtyard side). Härzlig DASBREITETEAM More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The room was huge and the en suite almost as big as most hotel rooms. Very high tech with electric blinds etc. Wooden floors and very modern decor so does feel a bit cold but I liked it. All staff very friendly and breakfast was very good
