Hotel Basle is located close to the center and tram links, very easy to find. The staff are always very freindly and helpful. Rooms clean and well cared for. I especially appreciate the chocolate! This time I did not eat in the hotel but the food is usually very good.

Don't forget if you have a reservation there is no need to buy a tram/bus ticket as you will receive a motility ticket when you check in and proof of reservation is OK on trams and buses before you check-in.

The Hotel Basel is in a great location, close to transportation, the city center and yet on a quiet street. The staff is polite, helpful and make your stay wonderful. Rooms are a decent size, clean and well appointed. Overall a great experience at Hotel Basel!

The hotel is well located next to the Town Hall and to several trams. Rooms small but good, Bathroom very functional, service excellent and front desk very helpful.
I left behind some clothing, and when I called not only did they immediatly pck them professionally and send them overnight to our next destinatiom, but wouldn't accept any payment for the delivery !
This truly is service and should we ever return to this lovely city we will be sure to stay there again.

We stayed here for two nights prior to joining a river cruise. It was a great choice. The location is excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful. We didn't try the restaurant as we were all over town during the day but there were always people there so that's always a good sign. I think it is a very good value for the money.

Great location in Basel, close to Marktplatz for tram access. Small but clean and comfortable room, extremely friendly staff, nice food if a little expensive ... but that is just Switzerland! Will stay there again.

We choose this hotel based other reviews on this site and it did not disappoint. We stayed here for one night in September on our way to Italy. Having researched hotel prices in Switzerland (which is quite expensive) we felt the hotel represented good value for money. The staff without exception were all professional, helpful and warm. We had a double room which was a very good size and the most comfortable hotel bed we have ever slept in which was just what we needed after a very long drive. Everything in the room was beautifully clean and very well equipped. The complimentary mini bar and complimentary drink in the restaurant were very nice touches. We used the valet parking which we would recommend as if you don't know Basel parking could be quite difficult. Our room had very efficient air conditioning and we liked the fact that you also had the option to open the window and the air-conditioning automatically went off. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as we had limited time and wanted to spend some time looking round Basel which was delightful. As we didn't have sat nav we got lost trying to find the hotel but Basel police came to our rescue - so thanks to them. Also a lovely chap in a petrol station not only sold but fitted our vignette for us - we had an all round excellent stay in this lovely city and wish we could have stayed a bit longer We will definitely return.

This hotel is perfectly situated in the center of Basel. In walking distance you can see, find, taste everything.
The breakfast is really good with a variety of fresh bread and handmade delicious jams. Actually you can find anything you would possibly ask for a breakfast. Their cappuccino is quite good especially if you compare it with what cappuccino looks like in the Northern countries... The Wi-Fi is free and the mini Bar also!!! In my case everything was fine except the temperature in my room. It was freezing. There was a weird system with an unstoppable aircondition which was circulating only cold air. And there was nothing to generate heat. Even though that everyone in the reception was friendly and keen to help, it took them two days to bring me a radiator at the room. So, from the three nights I spent there only the last one was in a normal temperature. If this problem is not permanent, I would easily suggest this hotel, and mostly due to their friendly smiley people!

Dear tasospapadakis
Thank you for your frindly comment. The Problem with the room temperature is definitly not a permanent problem and we are very sorry that it took us so long to bring you a heater in your room! Next time we will definitly be quicker! But usually the problem should not appear again.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay anyway and are very much looking Forward to welcoming you again one day.
