“Short city break”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

My wife and I arranged a three night stay at Hotel Basel between Christmas and New Year. Having read the reviews, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room, which was larger than expected and certainly very comfortable. The staff were all very freindly, helpful and knowledgeable and the breakfasts excellent. The location in the centre of the old town is perfect for wandering around to all the main places of interest and handy for many excellent restaurants. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would hope to return sometime.
Free bottles of water and beer from the mini-bar and the loan umbrellas were some of the little touches that made this such an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Don't worry about having a room at the front as the road is pedestrianised and therefore very qu...

It was a last minute booking on a recommendation from my client. And was not too happy looking at the details initially. And when i came to check in, i thaught i may have made a mistake. But i was quite surprised by the way i was made feel good while checking in. And the rooms are quite decent size than many of the smaller rooms provided by big chains.
The location of the hotel is excellent, you can get around to any location at ease. And the hotel does quide you as well with a lot of patience.

It is perfectly located in the City Center and you can get everywhere easliy either by foot or bus and therefore its also a nice Hotel for a weekend city trip.

This is essentially a business hotel - when we went into breakfast at 9.00 am on a Saturday morning we were the only ones there! However, the people on reception were extremely friendly to us, and we were there for a relaxing weekend break.

The room was strangely decorated (red wall with papyrus plant stencilled on it) but we were given free beers and soft drinks in the mini-bar every day, and the hotel provided a free tram pass for our whole stay - very helpful.

The breakfast had a huge choice, and was in quite a nice cellar room. We did not have any other meals in the hotel, but the restaurant was always full, so it looked popular.

We were right in the centre of the old town, 50 yards from the Marketplace & red Rathaus (& Movenpick icecream cafe), very good hotel choice.
