I travel extensively and stay from top to bottom in hotels. Basilea rates as one ofthe best for value, location and overall generally. Its location in realation to public transport ( e.g. rail) is excellent. When they say 5 minutes to the station they mean 5 minutes. While not in the best of areas it is neverless an interesting area...

Firstly it is not value for money but its location close to Railway and lake makes it worth for stay. The rooms are OK with decent facility like LCD TV, fridge, locker, towel etc. The breakfast was as usual same typical European cold breakfast with little option for vegetarians. The Internet wi-fi was provided free of cost and was good...

I stayed at the Basilea for 10 days - it's situated in the old town, walking distance from the main train station which made it a great location from which to explore Zurich, especially given it's location to restaurants. The staff were very helpful and professional but not cold. I give them 5 stars for cleanliness - the place is...

This is a well-located hotel, close to the main train station and Central, a tram and bus transfer point. The hotel itself is modest; It's clean, has a friendly front desk staff (with one exception) and provides the usual European breakfast. Yes, the street can get noisy in the evening, so if one is traveling during warm weather when the...

For the price they charge and considering you are in the middle of one of Europe's most expensive cities, Basilea offers great value for money. Rooms are basic but very clean and breakfast is just what you would expect....cold meats, cheese, muesli, yoghurt, fresh bread and rolls etc. Staying here you can walk to all of Zurich's many attractions and...

We were booked in the Basilea Hotel in Zurich for two nights. The first morning my wife was sitting in the desk chair fixing her hair. She went to get up from the chair, and the seat of the chair came loose from the frame. Fortunately, she was not injured. When I examined the plastic seat, I noticed that the...

I stayed at the Hotel Basilea for two nights with my family. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews and so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel after a short (5 minute) walk from the train station. The woman at the front desk was quite pleasant and we were able to go immediately to...

Being my first trip to Swiss, I found this hotel extremely convenient for business as wel as holiday travellers. Walkable distance to the railway station, tram and the bus stops. Lots of restaurants around and the walk to the river is less than 4mins. I just stayed for a night and the room is small but sufficient for a biz...

This hotel is very handy for the Niederdorfli and the Bahnhoff. It is close to great restaurants and bars. But you must bring Bio-ears or ear plugs to sleep well here. The rooms at the back of the hotel are shielded from the craziness of the Zaehringerstrasse... traffic and working girls touting for business. We were here during a very...
