Yes the Hotel Basel is expensive...like everything else in Switzerland! That said we had a great stay. Room was clean and modern. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location cannot be beat for a tourist in Basel, one block from the Marketplatz/Rathaus and the terrific tram system. Easy walking distance to the Muenster, riverfront, and Basserplatz. I would reccommend the Hotel Basel as an excellent choice and would definitely stay there again.

I recently stayed at Hotel Basel and could not have been happier! I needed to extend at that last minute and they took fantastic care of me! The property is VERY clean and comfortable. Housekeeping is right on it and tremendously efficient and thorough. The General manager, Esther is fantastic and sets the bar high for all of her staff. The in-house "Brasserie" is great! The food and wine are great and I am returning in a few weeks for more business and will certainly book my stay with Hotel Basel again. Also the property is very centrally located and within walking distance to tons of restaurants, bars, shopping, trains and trolleys. Stay and enjoy!

Thanks again Esther, see you in a few weeks!

Clean, very central hotel in Basel.
It appears to have been refurbished recently.
The location is really perfect, close to the market and other old Basel attractions, yet pretty quiet since it is in a pedestrian area. Many restaurants are available nearby.
The only thing was there was a confusion with breakfast staff -- I remained there for several days and they insisted that I would need to pay extra for the breakfast, so I just took a small continental breakfast, yet at the end of the stay, I was told that my tariff had full breakfast included.
Never mind... everything else are great.

Dear ocl999
Thank you very much for your feedback!
This missunderstanding probably happened because our rates are usually excluding breakfast. There are only special offers somtimes that include breakfast. The staff at the breakfastroom does usually not know which rate you have booked. They should not insist than - you are absolutly right, but please excuse them for not knowing your special rate. Please contact reception next time and they will give you correct info about the booked rate at any time.

This hotel is so nice because, at first, the staff is gentle and ready to make your stay the best possible. Very comfortable and with two restaurants with excellent food. Another point that made me like the stay is that the locals come to the hotel to drink and eat, so, we have an idea of the local culture too. Nice.

Overall, had a nice stay here... Very centrally located close to Markplatz, and some decent restaurants though you will pay for the privilege. Breakfast is nice in a very cool area at the bottom of the hotel.... Rooms however are small and wish there were more English channels on tv as with some other establishments in Basel. After a long day at work, it does help to unwind in front of the box!!
