Used for business travel mainly, the hotel has a great central Liestal location, short walk form train station and form all restaurants in city. Decent breakfast at affordable rate. Convenient that it is above a Migros Store and has easy underground parking that is in expensive. Swiss Mobility tickets (free bus pass) available to guests on request.

All staff were very friendly. The room was very large and well equipped with plenty of space to hang clothes. The kettle is always a welcome bonus. The food in the restaurant on Sunday evening was excellent. Very well prepared and presented. In fact, we had eaten in Michelin-starred restaurants twice in the previous week (it was our birthdays!) and...

This is a quick review only; be warned. Food is no good. What makes it even worse is the waiting staff are rude, ignorant to the needs of their guest and simply blase. So really it was a double whamy and a terrible bland and overpriced experience. There are much better places to go to. Check out some of my...

Liestal is a small village about 10 minutes from Basel by train. Was there for business visting a pharma manufacturer. Room is accetable, WIFi worked great. Very nice personal. Good breakfast in the morning. No airconditioning and it was late August with temperatures in the mid-90's. Cooled off at night. Main annoying issue is the local town clock that rings...

The hotel was modern and comfortable and had parking bays in the attached multi story car park. The staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant food was excellent. The room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom had a bath with a shower.

Please be advised this hotel has no air conditioning. I stayed in July and it was fairly uncomfortable. They did let me borrow a fan! Haha This hotel is very basic-nothing fancy. Rooms are adequately furnished but that's about it. For American travelers please note Switzerland has different electrical conversions than most of Europe. The hotel generously loaned me three...

Swiss town hotels always tend to be practical rather than luxurious, even though the cost wouldn't suggest so. However the Engel is really nice, better than average food and great staff. Nice town, lots of bars and cafe without the tourists or noise. Good.

Marc G, Owner at Engel Hotel Liestal, responded to this review

Dear Guest Nice to hear you liked the Engel-food, the Engel-staff and the town! See you soon and best regards, Marc Grieder

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Liestal, the hotel Engel faces the old historical part of town and contains a great deal! Next to our 47 spacious and comfortable rooms, we also offer two duplex suites, which are inviting to a relaxed and refreshing getaway. Our two room types let you choose between an economy room with a characteristic sight of the historical city or a comfort room with a lovely sight to our quiet back garden. All our rooms are non-smoking and have full access to free wireless internet (Wi-Fi). Besides relaxing and enjoying the peace surrounding the hotel you might want to get active and recharge your batteries. Therefore we have installed a fitness room on the 4th floor with a view over the old roofs of Liestal! ... more   less
