This is a typical business hotel right in the heart of Basel. The hotel is in the walking district with good shopping all around. Small clean rooms with excellent customer service. Good restaurant onsite.

I can't really comment on price since we booked this hotel with points, but our room was clean and nice though a bit small. The hotel is really conveniently located in the heart of the downtown area, with easy walks to anything downtown and the river. The staff is friendly and helpful. Another tip: If you are facing the hotel,...

This is a perfect base for Fastnacht or Carnival. It is so central in the old town and all the floats come around the hotel from three angles. It is magical just standing outside the entrance at 4 am when the activities begin and being entranced by the drums and piccolos and the atmosphere. Staff are kind and they sell...

All basic amenities are there. Ironing is the only issue as iron not provided in room. They have a great restaurant / cafe on site. Centrally located in downtown. Short walk to tram, shopping and center of town!

My trip to Basel was last minute and I chose Hotel Basel from some previous Trip Advisor reviews. I was informed by the front desk when making the reservation that no GPS or sat map device would help me in locating the hotel and they were right. After several hours of following separate devices, two police officers gave me the...

Hotel Basel is a Friendly Hotel in the Heart of Basel. Rooms are small, but clean and well maintained. The breakfast staff are very friendly, but if you are looking for a good egg you will be disappointed. They serve a 'scrambled egg' that is more of a mass of egg in a steam dish. The fruits and breads are...

Great hotel, the restaurant was crazy expensive but the room was awesome! Don't use Uber to get to or from the hotel, the street is blocked for only taxis. Mini bar complimentary with yummy beer, great bath and tub and the bed was super comfy! TV hilarious old 80's shows all day!

I visit Basel a lot for work, can't count the trips, and I always stay here. Years ago I used to bounce around, but at some point I quit trying others and just stay at the Hotel Basel every trip. I travel all over constantly, and this is one of the only hotels I have ever rated. What I love....
