This hotel in central Basel is small but quite comfortable. Our room was quiet and fairly large. The breakfast was very ample and comes with the room. The hotel is an easy walk from the center of town and other attractions (the art museums, shopping district, etc.). All of the staff were very helpful including recommending nice places to eat dinner. The prices are quite reasonable and in line with a 3 star hotel.

While traveling for work & attending a conference at the University I stayed at Hotel Rochat in Basel. The location is great, not far from the campus & a great little cafe directly across the street (if you, like myself, opt not to pay 16chf for breakfast) with great cappuccino. The man didn't speak English, French or Spanish and we were fine with sign language. The hotel is also just up a set of stairs from the Marktplaz.

The staff at reception were really nice, the room was very clean & a good size (TV but not English and few French channels), the beds were comfortable with down pillows and duvets. The bathroom was a decent size and I really appreciated the nice shower.

I would stay here again even if I wasn't traveling for work - for the location, price & quality it was a good deal!

Located close to the old town, the hotel is within close proximity to the river and eating places. We had a little problem finding the hotel when we got off from the bus. Took a wrong turn and ended up walking in the wrong direction. There is a small direction sign at the tram stop but if you arrive by bus, you will likely miss the sign. Room decor is a little dated but the room is very clean and bathroom is of a good size. We arrived in the evening and the staff at the reception recommended a wonderful restaurant not far from the hotel at reasonable prices. Breakfast was simple but sufficient.

Very nice small hotel in a central location. Directly on the bus line, short walk to streetcar, and walking distance to central city and attractions. Room was large size by European standards, very comfortable. We returned 2 weeks later for a third night. Staff all spoke English and were very helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed two times, once in a double room, once in a triple room because no double was available, o...

Great location, excellent staff, perfect price. We had one night in Basel and found this Hotel via the web. The location is just in the heart of the old town. The staff helped us with parking and directions. Everything was great.

I would highly recommend this hotel for a short or long stay in Basel. The building is well-located and lovely, backing right up into the main square via a cute street stairway. Beds were big and comfortable, and the staff was extremely helpful to jet-lagged guests!
