Hotel older but charming. Front desk staff very helpful. Room was comfortable. I was not overly thrilled with the breakfast as many here review but was adequate. Definitely recommend for those who have only a few days to experience Basel.

The hotel is in a perfect location in the city. A short walk or even shorter tram trip to the Christmas markets. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The windows, although very good double glazed, can still actually be opened! Spotlessly clean & very comfortable. We were offered an upgrade for a small fee, to a larger twin...

Room was extremely nice, hotel staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the city. The mobility pass to use the trains was a great additional and unexpected feature. And the location made is very accessible to Christmas Markets, museums, cathedrals, and all the sites we were looking to take advantage of in Basel.

Following a river cruise, we needed an overnight before a flight the next day. Hotel Basel was perfect--very clean and updated, friendly staff, convenient location in the "Old Town". Would definitely stay again.

We stayed three nights following a wonderful Amawaterways Christmas Market Cruise. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The room was on the first floor and was very clean and comfortable. Our window opened wide so we were able to hang out and watch the world go by on a charming side street. At night you could here the songs...
