Travelled to Basel on route to Colmar in France for the Christmas Markets and stayed at Hotel Victoria primarily for it proximity to the train station. An imposing and impressive building situated in the heart of the city within a stone's throw of the train station. Styled in keeping with an art deco theme the foyer was vast, clean and...

The Victoria is a comfortable hotel. All room amenities are basic but none were below average. One issue that I had is that my room overlooked an alley and I was woken up three mornings in a row at 5:30 by garbage / delivery trucks picking up and dropping off. There is a fitness room but it is extremely basic...

This establishment is so well located that the tram station is just in front, the railway station just two minutes away and the airport shuttle bus stops at the railway station every 8 minutes. Trains leave from this station to other cities in Switzerland, nearby Germany and France. We stayed 4D/4N. Our room faced front, but we hardly heard the...

My wife and I were recently stayed in Hotel Victoria for 2 nights. The location of the hotel was unbeatable as it is literally across the road from the train station (Basel SBB). Check in was quick and without fuss. Upon check in we were given free transport pass for the public transport in Basel. The room was comfortable and...

The hotel is well maintained, the rooms being comfortable and very clean with the restaurant providing excellent, well presented food, both at breakfast and dinner. In addition...

The hotel is in prime position directly opposite the central train station (the airport bus drops you immediately outside which operates every 10 minutes taking 15 minutes) The hotel also gives you a transport card you can use for this on all transport - trams, buses etc around Basel). Basel is very small so it didn't take long to walk...

The hotel is located opposite Basel SBB. There is a direct bus from airport to Basel SBB ( last stop). Perfect location for us because we had an early train to other cities. There are restaurants (Mc d, Burger King, Asia food, western food), cafes ( Starbucks,etc) and supermarket nearby. Tram stops/ stations just outside hotel. As for room itself,...

The hotel is situated opposite the main railway station, but, the rooms where remarkably quiet considering it's location. The rooms were very clean, staff very efficient. Nice hotel, would stay there again if in Basel. Approx a 15 minute walk to the centre of the old town, 10 minute walk to the Zoo. Trams to all locations frequent. Good location...
