The other reviews are accurate. It's simply not work CHF 60 per night. It's clean and in a great location. But there are 9 rooms sharing one toilet and one shower. Also, there's a terrible smell coming up from the kitchen. And the cooks stand in the hall smoking cigarettes all day. The wifi also didn't work great.

Hotel near the tram station, walkable , few metres. Hotel provided free city travel pass for the entire period of stay which helps you to explore the city with out any additional expense. Rooms are ok with shared bath rooms, which are clean. Helpful staff.

And for cheapest I mean 50 euros per night. Well, it's Switzerland. The rooms are pretty small and the toilet and shower are sharing, but I've seen worst. Not bad, book it if you need a "cheap" one night stay. A bit noisy at evening. Great location.

We booked this hotel because it was the cheapest option we found on the city...but it was 85€ event thought. For the same price I've been in luxury hotels in other cities but this is Basel, so all you get is a ugly room with shared bathroom in the third floor with no lift in a hotel with no reception....

This hotel has a friendly staff and its situation in downtown Basel if you look at the price I payed (65 CHF the night) is fantastic, and therefor the 3*! If you go after the room it's only 1* worth. There are no elevators up to the 3rd floor. The rooms are really clean (everything is in Switzerland), but the... More

If you want to save money this hotel can be a solution in Basel but not for demanding people. The room is really basic and bare but not dirty. Toilet and shower are outside the room and shared with other guests. There is no breakfast. There is no wifi. There is not a reception, when you get to the hotel... More

First things first: my one-night stay at Stadthof cost about 1/3 of what I would have paid at any other similarly central Basel hotel. That's worth a star all on its own. That said, know that it's SPARE: I had a tiny little twin "bed" (more of a cot, really) with a separate shared bathroom. The staff was lovely; really... More

In terms of location/price ratio, probably one of the best options available in Basel. It is smack-dab in the middle of the city bordering the old town and quite literally in walking distance of all but few of the Basel sights. In return for location and competitive prices, you get basics and basics only. Rooms are up from the restaurant... More

This is definitely the hub of Basel, opposite the Historical museum at the Barflüsserplatz tram station, including the tram noises into late at night. Upstairs to the restaurant with no lifts. Very neat and clean room and shared bathroom facilities. Poor soundproofing; I could hear the guy snoring next door. Being a light sleeper I had to leave one day... More

“I didn't try the restaurant (hence no rating) both because I was mostly concerned with the practicalities of my visit and because the staff did not exactly create a very inviting atmosphere but my Swiss acquaintances told me it is quite well known in Basel.”
