For some years already I am visiting Basel business wise every now and then for a couple of days in a row and I always love to stay at "DasBreiteHotel". As kind of a social worker I like the idea of an "embrace hotel" bringing disabled people into regular work. The quality standards are high concerning cleanliness, attentiveness of the...

Fantastic brunch place with great choice of selection. Very elaborated buffet with warm and cold choice. Please book before you go there as it's usually booked out. You can walk afterwards along the Rhine.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week because we went to a concert at st. Jakobsville arena. The location is amazing, we managed to see all of Basel thanks to the tram, which is right across the street and the hotel gives you a free ticket for it.

Das Breite Hotel offers a varied brunch featuring local Swiss cheese and specialties. The restaurant section is bright and the service is very friendly. Brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday and goes until 2pm. A nice place to relax, chat and eat without being rushed.

Before visiting Das Breite Hotel I had no idea that they were a social institution. But I noticed based on the friendliness of the staff, which surpasses that of many 4 and 5 star hotels.
