Nice, clean hotel with very helpful staff, which was perfect for our 3 night stay. Central for all transportation and a short walk from the charming city centre. We didn't eat in the restaurant, as we had someone with us with knowledge of the best local eateries, however the bar was pleasant enough. A big plus is the included transportation card which gives free travel on buses and trams and saved us almost £100. Only downside was the that the bed and pillows were a little on the soft side but that is very much a personal thing.

We usually stop overnight in Strasbourg on our way home from italy but though we would a Swiss stop instead this year and as basel is on the route we looked there and picked up an excellent deal. The hotel room was immaculate, but the free floor standing air conditioning unit was a little strange. The view from the back, where our room was in not that appealing, but the service was 4 star. I think they have the same ooms for a single or double booked (we booked both) as we only had 1 towel, but a quick call to reception and within minutes we had 2 bath and anther two hand towels. The restaurant was a little pricey for an overnight stop, but we found a little deceptive restaurant on the far side of the green from the hotel. With the underground secure car park with a lift that will take you straight up to reception we didn't even need to unload the car.

It's not flashy. It's very clean. Has a great bathroom. Good value. Right at the hub of all the transportation. Restaurants everywhere. Quiet rooms. It is not a luxury hotel, it's more of a stop-gap as you travel to where you really want to go.

An overnight at the Hotel Victoria was marred by noisy digging of new tramlines and the flapping of a window cover that is outside the hotel. Room was otherwise comfortable, and well equipped, with free wifi and good range of TV channels. The restaurant was good for dinner, but the breakfast buffet was less impressive.

The Victoria has been a Hotel I have used since early 2000 and I have spend quite a number of nights there. I however never have the feeling of "returning home" like I do with some other Hotels around the world. The service is good, but impersonal. The rooms are clean and efficient, but meaningless. It is a bed with a roof above your head, nothing more, nothing less.

Room Tip: Make sure you do not have a room facing the railway station, the rumble of the trams can be felt eve...

I stayed here for two nights and found nothing to 'complain' about. That said, there is also nothing that makes this hotel stand out. Decent rooms and good beds. Good location, very close to the railway station. Friendly and efficient staff, very quick check-out.

Room Tip: The station is very close. My room was on the third floor and on the front of the hotel, but was not...

Just across central station, and in front of 'tram' square, where you can get transportation for any place in the city, this hotel offers quality in all aspects, from sleep quality to breakfast, service, etc. nice choice for a business trip to Basel.
