Nothing to hate, nothing to love. It is a nice clean setting with nice enough rooms settled in Basel's old town. The location is great, but the hotel doesn't inspire. If you just need a room to sleep in this place will take care of you. It's central location makes it convenient to make it over to a client meeting... More

The Hotel Basel is located centrally in the old down-town center, close to the market-place and the main shopping areas. The rooms are nice, but you have to ask them for a quiet room towards the interior-court. The service is very competent and friendly. Thanks.

We stayed one night at the Hotel Basel prior to departing on a Rhine River cruise to Amsterdam. It is conveniently located just a block from the market square and main tram lines, and two blocks from the Rhine. It is right in the midst of the historic old city, which we spent almost two hours exploring. We were lucky... More

I can't express how nice this hotel was from the friendly check in desk, to the lovely room. We stayed in Basel one night before embarking on a river cruise, and the location was an easy walk to the square where the town hall is. The location is pedestrian (or bike) only except for taxi's. Knowing this ahead of time,... More

We stayed in a superior double room for 3 nights. It was very comfortable, with a walk-in closet, an enormous bed, a large sitting area and a free minibar (soft drinks and beer) which my wife took full advantage of! It was all immaculately clean and everything worked. The buffet-style breakfast was varied and plentiful. The staff were extremely friendly... More

Hotel with the best location in Basel right in the shopping district. The have valet parking so this is no problem too. The rooms are a little small but functional and with good sound isolation, so no sounds at night from whatever. The breakfast is just ok, no home cooked eggs, just scrambled eggs wich were old.

What a great, quaint little hotel! Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms very quiet. Wonderful spot in the altstadt nearby to many little cafes and bakeries. Would definitely return next trip to Basel.
