Before visiting Das Breite Hotel I had no idea that they were a social institution. But I noticed based on the friendliness of the staff, which surpasses that of many 4 and 5 star hotels.

This review should be a clear recommendation to stay in Das Bret hotel if you are in Basel. We came for a family visit.

Das Breite hotel is close to the city centre of basel. Not a luxury hotel but large rooms with flat screen tv and smart tv for internet. Staff are very helpfull. Drinks and snacks always available in the reception. Breakfast buffet is good with all on offer plus additional egg options(scrambled,fried,etc)

Stayed here for one night in the single room. The room is very small but very contemporary and is well designed.

Dear sriramhary Thank you for your feedback and your good rate. ARTBasel and Baselwolrd are the highest season in the year. Visit us again in the other 48 weeks of the year, when the rates are really moderate. Maybe in combination with our interesting leisure packages ART, Family, Carnival…). Härzlig DASBREITETEAM More
