We have nothing but praise about our stay before boarding our Tauck river boat cruise on the Rhine. It was a great location for walking the city, fairly near the river boat pier by taxi, the staff was helpful and friendly, spoke English, the room was nice and clean, great breakfast downstairs and a restaurant. We came in early April...

We were only at the Hotel Basal for one night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and clean. The location was in the old part of Basal and within easy walking to the Town Market and waterfront area.I would stay there again if I was on the area.

I stayed for a business trip and was very pleased with the comfortable bedroom and well appointed bathroom. the hotel is immaculate and the staff are very helpful. The location couldn't be better. Public transport is a stone's throw away and there are many bars, restaurants and interesting shops in the very near vicinity. I hope when I try to...

I don't have one bad thing to say about this hotel. We reserved a superior double which was more than enough space for my husband and I along with our 3 yr old who slept on a rollaway bed. The hotel was very kid friendly, they let my son pick out a toy upon checkin and there was a coloring...

This is a typical business hotel right in the heart of Basel. The hotel is in the walking district with good shopping all around. Small clean rooms with excellent customer service. Good restaurant onsite.

I can't really comment on price since we booked this hotel with points, but our room was clean and nice though a bit small. The hotel is really conveniently located in the heart of the downtown area, with easy walks to anything downtown and the river. The staff is friendly and helpful. Another tip: If you are facing the hotel,...

This is a perfect base for Fastnacht or Carnival. It is so central in the old town and all the floats come around the hotel from three angles. It is magical just standing outside the entrance at 4 am when the activities begin and being entranced by the drums and piccolos and the atmosphere. Staff are kind and they sell...
