I recommend regarding the Kloster Dornach as a bit of a 'living museum' with an authentic feeling of preserved history. The rooms are not en suite, so one must adjust to that. The doors and wooden floors creak a bit and the chapel bell is, ahem, quite authentic. I really enjoyed the ambience and it was very quiet at night.... More

This former Capucin monestary - as stones throw from the train station - has been remodelled into a simple and inexpensive hotel with lots of charm. The rooms have not numbers but names like, "Vertrauen" (Confidence), "Liebe" (Love) etc. The WiFi works fine. The only down side is the bathrooms and showers outside the room but on the same floor.... More

Being a former convent, it was rather spartan. Being a hostel, we had to use bathrooms across the hall. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms big and modern. The included breakfast was meager, but they did have freshly baked croissants each morning! We only received one thin bath towel each - no hand towel or washcloth. It was the... More

This place was "ok". It used to be a nuns home. Staff is friendly, bed and bathroom is clean. Bathrooms are separate in the hallway.Not inside the room! Beds are single beds. So we had two separate beds. However, everything was clean. Breakfast is included. The Dornach station for tram and train is just in front of the hotel Kloster... More

Kloster Dornach is beautiful in its simplicity. Good food, pleasant grounds to walk and reflect, a good place to get away from the noise and rush of life. The beds were comfortable, the shared bathrooms were modern and clean. It is a perfect place if you are looking for quiet charm. Our family stayed here during a reunion.

The Kloster is spacious and quiet and very well located in the centre of Dornach very near the railway and tram stations. Basel centre is only a short trip away. Our room was very spacious and the (shared) bathroom (showers) new and clean. Breafast had ample choice of youghurt, tea, coffee, bread, cheese, jam etc. The restaurant is excellent. The... More

Peaceful, simple yet elegant. The breakfast is lovely, the hotel spotless and an atmosphere of quiet with no tvs, no telephones, no internet. A wonderful place to escape and think and write.
