The hotel staff was kind and helpful - they provided directions to places I needed to go for work and they remembered me, with my key at the ready, when I approached the desk each evening.

"Great location and charm"
Great location in the heart of Basel, with nice ambiance. We had two rooms, one which was generously sized with two twin beds, one which was small and somewhat cramped with a queen bed. There are two separate buildings, so make sure you get a room in the building with the larger rooms.

"Heat wave, no A/C"
Hotel was adorable and everyone was nice. Unfortunately. It was 94 degrees our entire stay in a 3rd floor room with no lift and no A/C. Our room was likely even hotter with one window and no cross breeze. They did supply a fan, without which we would have moved.

Hotel is so quaint. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate all your needs. Unfortunately, we were there during the heatwave of the century and no A.C. Otherwise it was great here.

"Great boutique hotel in a charming, central locato"
Basel was in the midst of a record heatwave and it was 99F the day of my arrival. There was no a/c in the hotel which made for a hot night though it did cool down. Staff charming and very responsive. Dinner at the restaurant excellent with fresh, well-executed seasonal cuisine and breakfast excellent. Most Swiss hotels do not have a/c so if that is vital, it may take some searching.

"A wonderful Swiss experience."
We stayed at Der Teufelhof in Basel for four nights. Der Teufelhof is a simple, confortable hotel on a quiet street a block from the Old Town center of Basel. The #3 tram stops almost at the front door and we received a free tram pass for the time we were there which made getting around the city very easy. The breakfast was not elaborate but typically Swiss - sliced meats, cheeses, fruit, breads and muffins. They happily will cook eggs for you also. We ate at one of their restaurants one evening and were very happy with our selection. The hotel is located very near the Basel Music Academy and we were serenaded by about 50 singers on two evening on one of the back sttreets. A most enjoyable stay!

Beautiful hotel, very friendly and accommodating staff. Wonderful neighborhood just steps from old town really easy to walk to all major sights. I came in the spring and the hotel grounds were in full bloom. Beautiful sight. Room was very clean and neat, bed was somewhat uncomfortable but not too bad. Hotel restaurant was very good, but like much of Switzerland it was rather expensive.

"Excellent Hotel!"
My friend and I stayed here one night as a stopover between Zermatt and Luxembourg and it was great. The staff was extremely friendly and answered all questions that we had. We were only in the town for a few hours and the woman at the desk was able to give us a run down of exactly what we should see. Since we were leaving the hotel the following morning at 5:45, we were going to miss the complimentary breakfast. In order to make up for this, the hotel packed was large lunches free of charge! The room was super clean and very spacious. I would definitely stay here again!

"Don't Miss This One"
Excellent location. 3 minutes walk to the center of town, Free public transportation on the electric tram in front of the hotel. Stayed 2 nights in room number 2. The room is a corner unit , exceedingly spacious with 4 windows facing the garden and main entrance. The staff makes you feel welcome. This is one of the very few hotels in Switzerland that allows you to check out at 12 pm instead off 11 am. Fast internet available throughout the hotel. Superior breakfast available for a longer time frame than any of the other hotels in Switzerland. Complimentary cappucchino/tea maker in the room. The only draw back is that there is no elevator, but they will help you with the luggage. We truly enjoyed this hotel.

"not that great"
I wanted to treat my mom for mother's day, and booked a weekend in this hotel. It was really disapointing as the "nice" rooms are located in an older building, without elevator, and are only accessible through an old an uneven staircase. My mom could not climb up to the third floor where the room was located. Rooms accessible through an elevator are common and not worth the price per night. There is no AC in the room, and given the price of the room, the quality is overall not good. It is a nice, clean hotel, staff are great and responsive, but you'll get a similar room for 1/2 the price in any other hotel in Basel.

"LOVED this hotel"
Both of us thought this hotel was superb. Mandy greeted us at reception and, although we were early, made sure our room was quickly made up and ready for us to move in. Since we don't travel lightly, we were delighted to find that Der Teufelhof does have an elevator. The hotel is a converted old mansion, very artistically decorated and furnished, open, airy and light. The food was absolutely fabulous, with fresh local specialties and a wonderful breakfast. The hotel is located in the music district, so we could (occasionally) hear people softly practicing the piano when we opened the window -- this added to the beautiful atmosphere and enhanced the views of old town Basel. In addition, the hotel is immediately beside the tram stop for the Music Academy -- making transportation around town a delight. We were furnished with a free transportation pass at the reception desk. Throughout or stay, Mandy and her colleagues were available to make every detail of comfort and convenience available. I hope to return one day for a longer stay.

Staff at this hotel was professional, helpful and anticipatory (i.e. arrived about 8:30am one morning from an international flight and they were able to provide a room immediately.) Very nice bar - good food, service and atmosphere. Complimentary breakfast was also very nice - buffet plus eggs to order. The hotel is just interesting and the owners / staff show obvious pride in it.

"A very special Basel hotel experience"
Der Teufelhof is a unique, beautifully managed hotel in a lovely residential area near Basel's Old Town and downtown. The husband and wife owners bought the property 5 years ago planning to bring together the visual arts community, theater, 2 excellent restaurants and a tiny, perfect bar - all in a historic building with a viewable chunk of the old city wall in the basement. The staff is incredibly engaged and seem to truly enjoy being there; the owner is charming and visits every table when he stops by the restaurant. The reasonable price includes a great breakfast, trolly pass (the stop is very close), and terrific wall art in the room. Even though the bath was quite modern and roomy and the room large there is no elevator but if you don't mind stairs these add to the romantic look and feel of the place. The room was spotless as one expects in Switzerland. Will return to this hotel for every Basel visit - simply in another league compared to the functional but all-the-same chains I usually select. This was one exception that totally paid off.

"Helpful receptionist personally carried TV to room"
Hotel was pleasant but not outstanding as some ratings suggested when I chose it. Our room, number 23, was compact with no TV although the helpful hotel receptionist did bring one personally upon request. The floor boards outside the room were creaky and you could hear other guests passing by from time to time. On the upside breakfast was good. The hotel is reached easily by Basel's public transport system.

"A disaster!"
No "climate control" in 36c heat. Hotel blamed Expedia. No twin room available despite it being specifically booked. Hotel blamed Expedia saying it's just a "request"! Service slow, rooms small. Next door to trams which start running at 5am! Some rooms don't have TVs! when the experience is bad you start noticing the little things, eg, you'd need to take a Yoga class to contort yourself into a position allowing you to use the toilet and reach the toilet roll holder. In 36c heat, the last thing you want is a bathroom mirror with 6x high wattage make up melting bulbs overhead! No curtains in room and only means of privacy is closing the windows which have shades - sounds great but without climate control the room has no air flow once window closed......stiffiling!

"Warm evening at the Teufelhof"
The only drawback to our lovely room--a small suite, in fact--was the late night noise that drifts in from the patio below, and unfortunately past midnight. Other guests should take this into consideration as they select room locaiton. Breakfast was extremely delicious! The staff is very helpful and friendly. The courtesy tram card is a very nice perk; other hotels should adopt such a practice!

"Excellent Hotel"
Checked in at 10:30, room was not ready so we visited the Christmas Markets nearby- only a few blocks away. Hotel situated in Old Town. The clerk had given us a map and highlighted some interesting sites to see. When we returned at 1:00 our room was ready. It was all in white with 1 piece of art on the wall- very clean, very simple. There were 2 bottles of water on the desk, coffee machine, and robes and slippers to use. I checked out the 2 restaurants- Gourmet cooking- pricey 47 and 59 Francs. Toured the archeological basement- very interesting Had a delicious breakfast in morning - arranged for a taxi for us. Highly recommend this hotel.
