Reviewed 30 March 2013

This is a very simple 3-star hotel, as other reviewers have already stated. It is close to Zurich's central railway station and to the main shopping areas . The front desk personnel is extremely kind and helpfull, and the continental breakfast reasonable. The only problem I experienced was regarding the floor noise insulation: you can clearly hear people walking on...

We found a good deal on GalaHotels.com for 130 USD for one night for a couple. The room was big, quiet and facing the back with a view of the old city and the snowy mountains. It was perfect for a one night on the way to a ski vacation in Austria. It is a 5 minute walk from the...

Hotel Basilea is more expensive than similar hotels in Switzerland, but it is conveniently located in the centre of Zürich. The down side is that it appears to be in the red light district, so the area does not look overly safe at night. The room I got was a single room. It was clean but small. The walls seem...

Located near the main railway station, good staff, the room is small, as a 3 star hotel it,s reasonable, the breakfast is good but no much varieties that you can choose. You can enjoy walking side the river to the beautiful lake with the boats and big number of birds, overall it's near to the most shopping areas.

Hotel Basilea in Zurich is situated in the old part of the city within 5 minutes’ walk from the train station. Besides the good location and friendly service there is nothing special about it, so do not waste your money for this place. Rooms are small and look more like upgraded cells in a prison. There is no closet, drawers...

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...
