“Hotel D in Basel, Switzerland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

I have stayed twice at this hotel. It is very well located in Basel near to the old city. It is a small hotel with excellent rooms and good service. It is as most Swiss Hotels very clean bad efficient. The hotel offers a free breakfast that is also very good with a reasonable choice of fresh foods.

The only problem with the hotel is that there is no real service or food in the evening. You are required in the evening to go out to eat and there are very few restaurants in this area open after 10 pm. If one plans for this deficiency, then it is a very good place to stay in Basel at reasonable prices for very expensive Switzerland.

Room Tip: All pretty consistent

Dearest Arthur,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the D on Tripadvisor.
We would like to thank you for choosing hotel D again on your second visit to Basel.

I am pleased to read that you have found our staff members friendly and efficient.

As you have truly mentioned, it is difficult to find restaurant serving food after 10 AM. However, this is not because of our location but it is true all over Switzerland.
On your next visit, please ask us for late opening restaurant. There are a couple of them close to the hotel.

Thank you again for your great comment that truly reflect our establishment.

Best wishes,

Julien Baly
General Manager

We enjoyed the ultra-modern hotel and the convenient location for walking the city and trams.
Breakfast was ample with an attentive attendant.
The room was clean and quiet.
The price of room and breakfast was expensive, but seems to be the norm for Switzerland.

Recently I had been on a business trip for 9 days to Basel and stayed in the Hotel D. Since I am visiting Basel for the first time my preference for the accommodation was to have a hotel that is located close to my office and is located close to most of the city landmarks to explore during the weekends. I am glad I found Hotel D which fitted my requirements pretty well. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and clean, but little less spacious. I was able to visit most of the landmarks like Marktzplatz, Munster cathedral, Spielzeug Welten Museum, St. Elizabeth cathedral and Museum Tinguely by walk. The hotel is well connected by both tram trains and bus. The free WIFI signal was strong. I could work from the hotel even after my office hours this was helpful. One suggestion it would be helpful if a special package deal is available for corporate visitors who could opt for a subsidized breakfast during room booking. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend my friends as well.

I come to Basel often for business and always stay at Hotel D. Last week I spent 3 nights at the hotel and the quality of stay was as good as the last.

The hotel is only 15 minutes from the airport by bus and centrally located in Basel . There are two bus stops and two tram stops right outside the hotel, although the main attractions are walking distance!

As soon as i entered the modern building , I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who checked me in quickly at 11.30 am even though check in time was at 3 pm ! This is an example of how the staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

The room was spacious, clean and modern - and bed was very comfortable! The free wifi also has a strong signal. The sauna and fitness centre were also clean !

At check out, I was impressed that the owner of the hotel personally asked me about the quality of my stay, and I told him what I tell you, I will definately be back on my next trip to Basel!

I loved the modern clean decor of my room & lobby. Everything was exceptionally clean and well maintained. My room was on the small side, but the bed was perfect, the duvet & pillows heavenly. My room faced a side street that was quiet so I could sleep with the windows open. Great location - hardly needed my free transport pass - I walked everywhere from the hotel. Rhine was just across the street. Breakfast was simple, but good. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. People watching from the huge picture windows in the lobby was a great way to wait out the rain. Free wifi in room had a strong signal.

Hotel D is situated in a modern building and our room had floor to ceiling windows - loved the detail! Also the room was spacious, since it was one of the corner rooms and bathed in natural light. Large bathroom as well, very stylish decorated and chic. The sauna was however our favorite place, while the fitness center seemed pretty cool too. Great breakfast and very modern atmosphere, not to mention close to everything - transportation, shops, attractions, etc.
