Our experience at the Hotel Basel was absolutely wonderful. The staff was awesome,, from recommending restaurants to helping us with housekeeping (whose staff also was wonderful). Can't say enough about how wonderful this hotel is, how the location is perfect, and how many things there are within steps of the hotel (shops, restaurants, town squares). Thank you, Hotel Basel!

This is the place to stay! Loved the room and the staff is extremely helpful!! The room price is exceptional for this area of Basel and is close to everything. Trams are easily accessible to anywhere in the city.

I recently stayed at Hotel Basel for 4 nights during a business trip. The location is fabulous--very accessible transportation options to get to the office and perfect for walking around in Basel for shopping, restaurants, etc. My room was very pleasant and I did not hear any noise at night. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds...

Stayed here while at Basel tennis last week. Had a wonderful time in this lovely hotel. Very warm welcome from reception and this friendliness continued throughout our stay. Tram voucher was a real surprise as was free drink. Lovely room in every way. We had a suite which did give us an extra bit of space. Would definitely return.

A very budget pick among the very many luxury properties around Basel, we chose this since it was near the station besides being very close to Basel Zoo-- that my kids had set sights on. Frankly the hotel has nothing to write home about but given that it came very inexpensive, I did not expect great views or A-Class treatment...

Dear Dr. Prem J Thank you for your nice comments. I'm not completely sure you have really been at Hotel Basel as we are not really close to the station or zoo but Basel is a small town in comparison to Mumbai. Best regards Your Hotel Basel Team

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Basel for 3 nights end of October after disembarking from our Rhine River cruise. The location is perfect, right in the center of old town with shops and restaurants steps away, just a block walk to town hall and tram stop. Very clean and quiet, looking onto the street. Breakfast is sumptuous, especially...

Very good hotel. Quiet and in the centre of Basel. Also the breakfast, even if not cheap, was very good. In 5 minutes walk on arrive down in the city and it is also near the university. Also the very important and suggestive river in about 5 minutes far away.

Reviewed 2 November 2015 via mobile

Hotel is old and rooms are small. I found hairs on my pillow and toilet and the stuff did not really care about this, they just said that someone will come to clean it... Breakfast is nothing special. Good location and many channels on TV in many languages. I would not recommend and would not visit again.
