Great hotel, contemporary design, very professional & polite staff, excellent breakfast & complementary wifi, fitness & sauna (super clean as the rest of the hotel), modern and super clearn rooms, excellent location, close to the Rhein, charming address in old city district, exactly what you hope for and expect to find as a home away from home. Superb !

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice. Enjoyeed wood floors in the room (very clean). Some rooms may be quieters...

Hotel D was one of our three choice, based on price and location. We were really satisfied, for the overall stay - check in and check out were quick, smiling staff, confi and very clean room. Its the type of boutique Hotel we enjoy to stay in, for its unique style. We will come back, thank you again :-)

very nicely designed hotel. a bit cold in the colors for me but design is very much about personal taste. We booked a suite on the top floor, with nice view across the city. Very nice bathroom and the room itself as well. Calling it a suite may be slightly stretched. the room is of very nice size but there was a bed, one design chair and a desk only a the end. something else to sit on than the bed would be appropriate. overall, a nice stay

Stayed here for couple of nights, super location for the old town and Sunday markets. Comfy beds, high pressure 'rain' showers and helpful staff. I had a double bedroom overlooking the street but was not affected by noise as good double glazing and Basel is fairly quiet at night anyway. High recommended

We stayed two nights prior to a river cruise. When we arrived by cab and went to check in we realized that my husband had left his backpack on the cab! The hotel staff immediately began calling the cab companies to find our bag. It contained passports,camera,medication and jewelry. It was shocking and a horrible start of a 3 week trip BUT. the staff including Julien, Carmen and Laura went above and beyond to find our driver and have our bag returned safely. Within 2 hours our bag was back and everything was still in it. We really appreciated their help as we had no receipt or info about the company of the cab we took. THANK YOU

The room was extremely clean and comfortable. We loved the shower and didn't want to get out !!! One thing I am very fussy about are the bed linens and these were white and fresh. The comforter was spotless and warm. We would stay there again if ever in Basel.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for a mix of business and pleasure. It does the job perfectly for both. It is very clean and well presented with lovely comfy beds and marvellous rain showers. The breakfast is laid out in the seating area of the hotel and has all the options you could wish for. There is no restaurant or bar but that is not an issue as you are moments from the towns many shops and restaurants.

Staff were very helpful and printed off our return boarding cards and nothing was any trouble for them. As with everything is Switzerland it was not cheap but worked like a perfectly oiled machine!!

Dear Hotel Guest,

It was a pleasure reading your positive feedback.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, we have mattresses which were especially designed for Hotel D and offer a perfect night’s sleep, but the best focal point in the room must the unique rainshower.

Thank you again for having taken the time to write this review.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you back at Hotel D.
