Reviewed February 1, 2013

My partner and I recently stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the end of January and we were both very impressed .
It is an excellent base from which to explore Basel. It is outside of the centre but this is not a problem due to the efficient public transport system that they have. The trams run all through the day until around 1am and come to the stops every 10mins or so.
The staff at the hotel are super efficient and very polite and excel in helping you with any requests you may have.
At check-in we were issued with free public transport passes and timetables/maps from the Reception staff, which we were able to use straight away as the tram stop is right across the road and takes you into the centre within 10mins.
The rooms are very spacious and clean and beds very comfortable.
Some nice touches in the rooms also that you wouldn't normally expect from 3*.

We ate at the Aroma Italian Trattoria on the Friday night which is in the centre and was absolutely delicious. On the Saturday night we ate at the Steak House right next door to the Hotel and again the food was excellent and really good value for money for such a good quality steak.

I would definately recommend this hotel if you are visiting Basel.

Has it ever happened to you? You pay a lot of money to try out a very expensive hotel and when you check out you wish that you'd never have done this choise?

After some experiences like the above mentioned, I decided to stay in a 3 star Best Western hotel that is ranking quite high in Tripadvisor in Basel (Hotel Stuecki).

And miracle!!!

The rate is very good. 120 CHF (i.e. 100 Euro and this in Switzerland) for a double room which is modern, clean and above all has very friendly staff. Not the robotic friendliness but friendliness that comes from the heart.

I stayed there for two nights and I will definitely stay in Stuecki again. This, because it feels homey, it is quiet, has a garage, it is conveniently located close to bus and tram stations and the staff cares about their guests.

Thank you Stuecki and next time I will book directly with you and not with the O.T.A.'s

We stayed at the Stuecki the day before departing on a Rhine River Cruise. We arrived at the hotel about 10:00 a.m. It had been a long flight to get there from Des Moines, Iowa to Basel via Amsterdam - the last leg on Easy Jet. We were weary so asked if a made-up room might be available. The front desk staff was able to place us immediately. They were also most helpful with directions and helpful answers to our questions. The location was ideal. The tram stop was about three blocks away and the hotel provided a tram pass that was good for the two days (one night) we were there. Our Viking cruise ship was docked nearby and we were able to walk there pulling our luggage. The room was of a nice size with a large window and excellent bath. Both the room and bath were spotlessly clean. We had coffee from the lobby shop and that was our initial exposure to Swiss prices - it's not a bargain destination! We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay here should we return.

We had a lovely stay at the Stuecki. The hotel is clean and quiet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The decor is minimalist. We had some serious laughs regarding the lighting in the room. I'm not going to share, you just have to experience it. It's right near the tram stop that takes you to downtown. A great location. Would definitely recommend.

Cannot believe this is only a 3*! What a lovely hotel. Super clean, modern and tastefully furnished.

Stayed 2 nights 14-16 December 2012 for a girlie weekend. Had Rooms 302 and 304 and both were absolutely superb and very quiet. Vinyl/laminate flooring which was great - hate grotty carpets. Rooms were both identical and were very large and bright with neutral decor. Free room safe. Bathrooms were fantastic - large walk-in shower with huge rain head and another one - very modern and super clean. Nice toiletries and a proper hairdryer - don't bother taking one. We had single beds and they seemed bigger than normal and I think they were memory foam - comfiest hotel bed I've ever slept in. Pillows, however, were awful - asked reception for some more. Only downside for me was that the windows could not be opened but the heating/air-conditioning was easy to control.

All the staff were lovely and friendly and very efficient. We received a complimentary drink at the hotel bar as well as bottled water in our rooms. Also, there was a comp fruit basket at reception and a small area offering comp juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate opposite reception.

We paid 23 CHF / approx £15 for breakfast one morning and although that seems expensive it was actually very good value considering how expensive food is there. The breakfast was extremely good - usual hot things (fabulous scrambled egg and cook-your-own boiled eggs), cold meats, cheeses, pastries, bread, jams, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, juices, tea, lovely coffee - and kept us going all day.

The tram stopped across the road from the hotel and using our free travel passes, we were into the centre of Basel in approx 10 mins.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. We paid approx £75 per night per room (room only) and, for Switzerland, this was amazing value.

This hotel is very nice. It has very large and well decorated rooms. We've had a very good breakfast service. Even if it's not located in a central zone, you can reach Basel centre in 10 minutes by tram.

We stayed here for 2 nights before a Viking River Cruise to Amsterdam. It was a great location, only a short walk to the public tram. We loved the fact that the public transportation is free for tourists; we used it a lot. The rooms were quite large and we loved the showers! We found the food in Basel to be very expensive. The hotel is located within walking distance (about 20 minutes) of the pier for Viking and easily accessible. Because we had a lot of luggage, we took a taxi (20 CHF) but we met people who had walked from the hotel and had no problem. The front desk personnel were very friendly and extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Basel!
