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.

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Year with plans to explore Switzerland. The hotel is in a great location, we arrived just over the road via the airport bus, the hotel is directly opposite the train station, also tram stops, handy for exploring Basel city. Considering it was directly opposite a busy transport network, i felt it was...

Stayed here for two nights on business. Right across from the train station so getting to other major cities is simple. Lots of places to eat close by. Walking distance to the old city center, museums, and airport. Room was small but adequate.

Was in Basel and stayed at the Victoria Hotel for the first time. Location is great. Directly at the tram station and at the train station. A supermarket is right next to the hotel. Also some restaurants are next to it. For the quick meal also Burger King and McDonalds are just a minute walk. The hotel itself is ok...

I decided to leave Colombia for Christmas to escape the incessant noise, totally by chance I picked Basel and chose Hotel Victoria for 5 nights. Well I could not have expected more in the quietness stakes. I was in the last room on the top floor of the annex. I didn't even see any other guests in that building, just...

Travelled to Basel on route to Colmar in France for the Christmas Markets and stayed at Hotel Victoria primarily for it proximity to the train station. An imposing and impressive building situated in the heart of the city within a stone's throw of the train station. Styled in keeping with an art deco theme the foyer was vast, clean and...

The Victoria is a comfortable hotel. All room amenities are basic but none were below average. One issue that I had is that my room overlooked an alley and I was woken up three mornings in a row at 5:30 by garbage / delivery trucks picking up and dropping off. There is a fitness room but it is extremely basic...

This establishment is so well located that the tram station is just in front, the railway station just two minutes away and the airport shuttle bus stops at the railway station every 8 minutes. Trains leave from this station to other cities in Switzerland, nearby Germany and France. We stayed 4D/4N. Our room faced front, but we hardly heard the...
