Airport Hotel Basel

Reviewed 8 July 2017

This is a hotel I have traveled past often and wondered about the lodging. So, stayed here for 2 nights in June.

It is very well located for the airport. It is right on the 50 bus route that runs very frequently between the train station and airport, and of course if you are resident, the clean, efficient and punctual public transport ticket is thrown in. Fantastic!

I like the rooms. Would prefer to have Tea and Coffee making facilities. Nice use of LED strip lighting with the ability to alter the colours.

Bar area is OK. Predominance of Red colours in the area - suppose it may have something to do with being colocated with a casino, but not sure.

Restaurant is not really worth a visit. The menu is very limited, so I advise taking the 1 minute walk to the bus stop and wandering into town.

Casino's don't do it for me, but if you're into that sort of thing, its right on your doorstep.

Would certainly consider staying here again.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your Review. Great that you liked our modern equipped rooms. If you stay with us again please do not hesitate to ask at the front desk for a kettle so you can prepare your coffee or tea in the room. See you next time. Dimitris Argirakis, General Manager

Stayed here on 6th July
Good greeting from reception and the bar staff
Rooms very comfortable with excellent choice of tv channels
Golf and bar on 1st floor non existent should not be advertised within hotel info
Biggest concern and advice for all travellers would be the restaurant as the hotel is remote there is no choice but to use the hotel restaurant. To say this was disappointing is an under statement. Food was just warm, little choice and of poor quality
My colleague had the much advertised house burger with the "special jack Daniels" sauce. This was tasteless, like warm and not worth the value paid
It would appear the food is all pre prepared and just warmed up in the microwave
Stay away from the restaurant, take advantage of ordering the Chinese or Indian food from the room or bar menu, this will take at minimum 45 minutes as they have it ordered in from a takeaway however based on my opinion of the restaurant take this option
Would I stay here again probably not

Loved the design of this hotel: ultra-modern and chic. The lobby and registration desk looked so different from the run-of-the-mill hotel. It doubles as a bar (the bar is on the other side). Loved the ultra-modern room also. Very comfortable, with air-conditioning and plush beddings.

Breakfast was likewise very bountiful. Best breakfast I had all week in Switzerland. Would stay there for the duration of trip to Basel, except that it was only located near the airport and nothing else. There is a casino inside the hotel, if that is desirable entertainment for you (not for me). The hotel provided free airport shuttle service and there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel. You also get a mobility ticket for buses and trams when you check in.

I did not like one of the front desk staff - a bit on the condescending side. But the rest, the men especially, were exceptionally helpful.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled solo

Stayed one night on business. Very good front desk service. Room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. Room also came with a Basel transit pass which I used to go into the city center. Wifi was available but seemed to be a bit slow. There is an airport bus shuttle. I would definitely stay here again.
