Dorint An der Messe Basel
Ranked #33 of 52 Hotels in Basel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2017 via mobile

Just back from 4 nights staying at the Dorint. From a Basel perspective it represents good value as it is a decent, modern room with en suite and flat screen TV. The tram line is a 5 minute walk away and will bring you to the city centre or Volta Platz with minutes. This is my 3rd stay here and the standard has been consistent.
From a constructive feedback perspective I would recommend that the hotel give a complementary bottle of water each night or your stay instead of just the first night. Some milk sachets would also be welcome as a lot of travelers like to have a cup of tea or coffee in their room.

I would recommend this hotel for business travelers especially if you are visiting either the Messe or the Novartis Campus. Equally for holiday makers attending the Musical Theatre.

The breakfast is good and there is a nice little bar for night caps too.

Hotel is located close to the fairground, between the city center and DB Station (Germany).
A tramway line at the corner of the street connects to city center in about 10 minutes.
From city center is possible to reach by tramway the French border (Tramway Line No. 11) or Weil am Rhein in Germany (Tramway Line No. 8). Hotel rooms are spacious and well-appointed with kettle, sat tv, free wifi. Breakfast is not included in room rate ad cost around 25 CHF per person. The quality of the food is good.Hotel is providing of a private garage at extra cost. Overall, I can say that this hotel is a good compromise for staying close to the Altstadt and save money except during fair dates

I actually stayed in this hotel 4 times between the end of May and beginning of July 2017. Hotels in Basel are expensive and this is at the more affordable end of the scale. It is a good business hotel - has the facilities you need, rooms are good size and clean, staff are friendly. It was very handy for my business meeting and a reasonable 20 minute walk down to the river and the older part of Basel.

Stayed here as part of a conference I was part of in Basel

Location wise it's in the lesser Basel
Very very close to the convention centres

About 5-7min walk to train station and 5 min walk to tram station

Very clean safe neighbourhood as is most of Switzerland

Hotel staff were nice and spoke great English
Check in was easy

The room was very small with no air con
It did get very hot
But the reception will lend you a small fan but it's nothing compared to proper air con

Breakfast was included in our stay and it was nice enough with lots of variety I felt.

Overall great location for the convention centre , nice staff and breakfast but small rooms w no air con.

We stayed here for just 1 night as a stop over, it was very clean, staff friendly and only about 15/20 mins into the centre by foot. Nice underground car park as well. They have us adaptors as ours didn't work as well. All round good trip.
