Teufelhof is expensive.

Book. either Hotel Basel,

Hotel Krafft on the Rhine

or Rochat as a budget solution. All of them are ok.

Basel is worth a day exploring. Absolutely.

Enjoy!

There are two docks. Most ships depart from a unspectacular area close to Kleinhüningen. Do not choose a Hotel there..

You can take tram no. 8 to Kleinhüningen (15 minutes trip from the center) and walk 15 minutes .................or take a taxi.

The other docks is called St. Johann.

Make sure which dock you are departing from.

Hi Thanks for your response last week..The hotel basel is full, the Krafft is really expensive. do you not like tDer Teufelhof..it looks affordable and conveniently located to walk.

Also the Spalentor is full..is this typical..

Do you have any advice re. the Best Wetern Merian am Rhein?? looks like a good location.

Since we are going from one night here to the dock for a cruise, I'm interested in being central, not by the train station
