Reviewed 17 October 2016

Absolutely loved staying here. The staff were very accommodating. The reception staff went above and beyond to help us with any tourism questions. The location was within walking distance to restaurants, trams, and work. Plus it was quiet. A big plus in my book. The room was beautiful. Will plan to stay here again and recommend to all my colleagues.

We spent a night in Dorint hotel. The staff were very kind and helped us in finding what to do in the city. We got a card that gives us free rides on public transportation so we would get any where in the city (including the Airport) for free. Breakfast was little expansive (19chf per person) so we didnt take...

Dear valued Guest It has been a pleasure to be your host during your stay in Basel. Thank you for your kind feedback on our hotel.

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 day city break at the Dorint Basel. I've based my *5 stars* on the premise that if you can't actually fault any aspect of a hotel, this it's deserving of 5 stars.

Basel is a rather small town on the Rhine, but perfectly suited for international meetings. It is easily reached through france and germany, as well as through the rest of switzerland. The congress meeting center is magnificent; many small or big hotels are situated close by. The town is calm, not like big business hubs elsewhere.. at 7, everything is...

So why is this my third stay at this hotel - because the company I work for from time to time said there was no other room available in Basel as there was a Fair that week. I believe them. It is still one of the last places I would stay. Clean, nice staff but so very basic and at...

There is nothing thrilling about this hotel, rooms are rather small but still OK, it is clean and relatively modern. Its architecture is very basic and boring but it is well located, close to the fair and other major places - but quite far away from the old town. Very small bar area, good breakfast selection and the service speaking...

Very clean hotel. Staff were very friendly and efficient. No delays at checkout. Good selection of food at breakfast. Hotel is in a good location. The Exhibition centre is a short walk away (less than 5 minutes). The old town of Basel is only a 15 min walk or a short ride on a tram.
