We arrived in Basel by plane, some time before we would be able to check in, and having consulted the hotel staff about this ahead of time, they were able to get us into a room as soon as we got there. This is a great comfort after a long flight, and we appreciate that even though they couldn't guarantee...

This hotel in Old Town was convenient to everything. The staff was very lovely, courteous, and helpful. Room accommodations very clean. We will be returning to Basel next year and will plan to stay again. The breakfast was typical morning buffet, but we ate dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was exceptional. Appeared to have quite a few locals...

Excellent service from the entire staff; great location yet very quiet. Great breakfast; wonderful restuarant with gourmet food. All amenities-firm bed, spotlessly clean. I especially enjoyed the ironing room. I would return to this hotel.

I use this hotel regularly for work commitments in Basel (perhaps 20 times in the last 5 years), and they are always a pleasure to stay with. The location is great for evening meals with Kohlmann's in Barfusserplatz a 5 minute walk away a particular highlight. Tram stops and taxi stands are also very nearby, with a travel card for...

What a great hotel on a quiet street near the city hall. Anna at the desk was very helpful; knew every tram location. The breakfast was very plentiful and varied. Nothing was missed. Claudia was a wonderful, happy server there. Room was spacious and clean. Slightly disappointed that with a superior room there was no tub.

I attended a conference at the Basel Congress Center. Hotels were not easy to find and eventually i booked at Hotel Basel online. It is situated only a 10-15min nice walk over the river to get to the conference center. It is downtown and honestly, you can walk pretty much everywhere. Most streets around the hotel don't allow cars. The...

I stayed here for 3 nights on business in Basel. The hotel is conveniently located near the tram stops, with an easy ride to Basel SBB. The rooms are European, meaning very small. I selected a larger room which is still small by compared to the typical US sized rooms an American might be used to. For one person its...
