First, this hotel is very strict with Covid rules , which we appreciated. Service was very good and the hotel is really beautiful. Food is very good - try the lobster bisque even if you don’t eat at Cheval Blanc. The location is very good - nice view of the Rhine river and within walking distance to the old town.

The opulent hotel dates back to 1842 and was painstakingly renovated by a team of historians to authentically preserve all the original detailing from its founding year. The deep ruby wallpaper lining many rooms features actual frescoes uncovered during the archaeological style restoration. With an illustrious guest book that includes Queen Elizabeth II, Picasso, Thomas Mann, Theodor Herzl and Napoleon, this is one swank haus.

Beyond 5 stars for sure!! The stay experience was wonderful and unique! Started with a special Bentley colorful limo pickup from house to the hotel. The driver was professional yet warm and friendly. Once entering the hotel, you instantly felt like going back in time to this medieval period. The check in was smooth with the staff being super friendly ensuring you have all you need. The room was spacious and luxurious with excellent view of the Rhein and bridge. The bed was comfortable but would be perfect if it is a queen sized bed instead of 2-joint twin beds. Slight problem with splitting in the middle sometimes. The unique experience was none other than the hotel tour. Our guide, Silvio gave us a very insightful and informative tour about the hotel history and stories, showing us other room designs but too bad we missed the presidential Napoleon suite as it was occupied at that time. However, we enjoyed his company with his professionalism and authenticity during the walkabout. Also, don’t miss out their Brasserie and the lounge/bar. Amazing food and especially for their private yet attentive service. Couldn’t haven’t asked for more! Location for sure is tip top for people who has a stopover in Basel with whatever you can get in the vicinity. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for an unique hotel stay instead of any typical one. Double thumbs up!!!

I found the hotel really overrated, when comparing other LHW in Switzerland. Although the building itself is unique, the facilities are extremely limited: very small gym, no spa . The service is polite, not warm. No kettle, no coffee machine in the room. Chairs in the room are “d’époque” but so uncomfortable. The plus: breakfast where the staff is friendly. Having stayed in more than 10 LHW in Switzerland, it’s quite disappointing

What a beautiful find! Right smack in the center of Basel within walking distance of all the best bars and restaurants this is a little jewel of a hotel. The view across the river means you don’t feel like you’re in the center of one of the most lively Swiss cities but yes you are! I only stayed here for a weekend, wish it could have been longer. A far cry from the modern hotel chains with this one packed with antique furniture and oozing history. We had a business meeting in one of the conference rooms and with its beautiful chandeliers and view across the bridge it could easily have doubled for a ballroom! Fantastic.
