“Good for a quick stop-over”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

The Hotel Porte de France, does the job. A basic, clean, straightforward place to stay 60 steps from the Swiss border (and a bit beyond that, there is a tram into central Basel). But you pay at least half the price of what you would pay in Basel.

Our room was in an annex behind the main building. The room was fine although the lighting could be better. There is a kitchen, but we didn't see any soap to clean the dishes. It took me two tries to get an extra pillow and the doors can slam noisily if other guests aren't considerate. Overall, an okay room at a fair price.

Spent five nights at the Porte de France for just under £220, visiting christmas markets in this corner of France / Switzerland / Germany. It does not claim to be a 'posh' hotel, but then neither is it anywhere near as expensive as you can expect to pay for fairly similar facilities just across the border into Switzerland.
The above sum gave us a decently sized double room, with en-suite shower room and kitchenette (fridge, 2 rings, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery and a washing up sink).
We could walk to the nearest tram stop on the Basel network in under five minutes, giving ready access to the centre of Basel during the day and well into the night.
Staying at a hotel in Basel city does give each person a 'free' travel card for all city transprt for the duration of your stay. This is not available if staying in Port de France. However, at only E8.50 per person per day to purchase a similar sort of ticket, you would need to use the system a great deal on every day of your stay to make this a financial incentive to stay in Basel 'proper'.
In all depends on what you want - if reasonable pricing, good location and perfectly adequate facilities 'tick your boxes' then give this hotel a go!
