Hotel Victoria was a quaint hotel. The location though is fantastic as right in front of it are the trams you can take to go everywhere! The lobby though is a bit small and breakfast selections were rather limited..the buffet i mean. But all in all, our stay was rather enjoyable!

The rooms were large and clean with nice decor! They were also very quiet as they are sound proof. The location was excellent, right opposite the main railway station and the main tram stops. Not far from the central square. The concierge were extremely helpful and nice and the breakfast was good. Would recommend

Rooms: Ours was huge, with a nice view and have great bedding, and a good toilette. Price was also inexpensive for what was on offer. Wifi was free and of excellent quality. TV channel...

I stayed here for 2 nights in January. The hotel is directly across the road from the train station so very convenient. The airport bus also stops at the train station too, making access to the hotel from the airport very convenient. The buses run at regular intervals too. The town of Basel is within an easy 10-15 minute walk...

This hotel is directly opposite the main station so if you have bags makes it a easy hop across the road. The airport bus stops outside the main station so it is also convenient for the airport which is about10-15mins on the airport bus. The main tram interchange is outside the station as well so getting to pretty much anywhere...

Even standard room was large, last time I was in a Residence suite. Low floor at front will give you some tram noise at commuting hours. Directly across from SSB station. If you arrive late you can even get an adequate meal in the restaurant and a drink at the bar.
