We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived with friendly and helpful reception staff. The room was big enough (standard room) and was clean. It had tea / coffee / kettle as well as a mini bar. The hotel has a lovely bar that appeared to be frequented by locals. The only let down was the...

The Hotel Basel provides a comfortable stay right in the heart of the city. The rooms are modern, well presented and there a loads of good restraints within walking distance. Don't discount the hotel's own bar next door where there is a good menu well presented. I have stayed a number of times and have not been disappointed!

I visit Basel a few times a month and generally the hotels are very good. I hadn't stayed at Hotel Basel before and was impressed with the good and friendly service and room size and cleanliness. The fact that the hotel is quite central is also good. My stay was ruined, however, by the broken thermostat on the central heating....

Dear StuartWagner We are so sorry for this. We did already have a look to solve this problem and offer you for your next stay to chnage the room if this will ever happen again. Thank you anyway for telling us and we hope to get a second chance to make things better. Best regards Your Hotel Basel Team

The hotel is centrally located. Service is somewhere between 2-3 star. Friendly but not too friendly. Rooms okay. Beware that prices are extremely high; I ordered cheapest bottle of wine and was charged 44 euro. Breakfast mediocre.

We stayed in the hotel twice in one trip to Europe (during the Christmas markets and New Years). We had two different hotel rooms. We stayed in a regular room for the first two nights. The room was average sized and clean. Toiletries were basic (no conditioner) but there was a coffee machine. The rooms were clean and they provided...

Couldn't ask for a better location. The staff were very helpful, nice rooms, clean, reasonable breakfast, very good without being spectacular. Certainly recommended for a visit to see the town and is easy to get about on the tram system.

We were so fortunate to spend a few nights at this lovely hotel in the heart of Old Town Basel during the Christmas holidays 2015. Arriving in the evening we easily found our way as the hotel was brightly lit with festive lights. The warm welcome continued with attentive staff, a delicious breakfast buffet in a grotto like dining room...

I was very satisfied with my experience at Hotel Basel. The central location; friendly service; and delicious, affordable (albeit by Swiss standards) breakfast left me with no complaints. Most points of interest are in walking distance of the hotel and the included public transit ticket gets you everywhere else via the nearby tram station.
