We spent just one night in Basel at the Hotel Rochat. Communication with the hotel was always prompt, and our questions were completely answered: cabs, hair salon, restaurant; and they took the time to inquire about our level of satisfaction with their recommendations. On the afternoon following our stay, we were departing on a river cruise and discovered that cane was left in the cab from the Rochat to the dock. We contacted the hotel, who contacted the cab driver and arranged to have the cane returned at the dock at a specific time. Such service! Of course, the hotel was comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast--not included-- was plentiful and fresh. I wish we had reason to visit Basel again and to stay at Hotel Rochat

The hotel is in a historic building in old Basel opposite to the University of Basel. The hotel has direct connectivity to the train station via tram. Despite being an old building, the hotel is very clean, comfortable and well-maintained. The breakfast is good too with many choices. The corridors are bit narrow but that is understandable. Staff is super friendly and the reception is always manned.

I really had a lovely stay in this hotel, and everyone we encountered was lovely. However, when I checked into the hotel I paid cash on arrival, but they never told me (on check-in, or on checkout) that they had already charged my credit card before I had arrived in the hotel. I only realised my card was charged, and I had double paid, when I returned from my holiday. I emailed the reception team and was reassured through a series of emails over a couple of weeks that my card had been refunded, months later and my money has not been returned, and have had to apply for a charge back from my bank. I would be very care to check if they have charged your card before you arrive. Would not stay again simply because they had two opportunities to tell me that had double charged me (which if they did they could have easily have given me my cash back) and have since neglected to give me my money back despite insisting they would.
