SAN DIEGO,CA
Reviewed 21 April 2016

Located in the heart of old town Basel this is a great location for shopping, dining and transportation. The staff is very, very helpful and the rooms are very clean and well appointed. Breakfast is in a very cute basement room looking like an old vault and very complete for any taste. If I were to travel to Basel again...

Such a comfortable place. The front desk personnel are very helpful and speak perfect English. The breakfast is abundant. The food at the restaurant is very good. The room is modern, comfortable, and nicely furnished. Plenty of things to do within walking distance. Strong wi-fi. Would gladly stay here again.

The best Hotel in Basel, very good staff throughout, fantastic location. And the food at the restaurant is the best, one of the best beef tartare I've ever had. Right in old town area, great access to the tram.

Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan
Reviewed 5 April 2016

This hotel is a four star hotel that deserves the rating. Rooms are modern and well furnished, the staff is bend-over-backward accomodating and the location is the best in Basel. Their wifi was strong and steady. Drinks in the mini-bar were limited but absolutely free (and refreshed daily).

Hotel is centrally located. There are plenty of restaurants and shops near by. Just be prepared to pay lots of money for food at any restaurant. We payed about 36$ for a burger, fries and soda. So pay the extra 20$ per person for breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast was great. The room was spacious and clean. We stayed...

I was a guest of Hotel Basel this past Baselworld [2016].

We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived with friendly and helpful reception staff. The room was big enough (standard room) and was clean. It had tea / coffee / kettle as well as a mini bar. The hotel has a lovely bar that appeared to be frequented by locals. The only let down was the...
