"GREAT HOTEL, WELL LOCATED"
A true four star hotel in the center of old town The area is for the most part reserved for pedestrians and is the shopping, restaurant and sightseing center of Basel. The staff eas very helpful no matter what we asked. The breakfast was a generous and varied buffet priced at 20chf (a deal if compared to prices at restaurants in the area.

"Amazing front desk service and hotel quality!"
Front desk provided amazing service. We left a carry-on containing a passport in our taxi from airport to hotel. We had no information other than a description of the taxi. Front desk tracked it down and had our bag with passport back within a couple of hours.

"Excellent value in central Basel"
The Hotel Basel was an unexpected delight in an expensive city. A great room at a great price with lots of little added perks, like a chocolate on the pillow, that one wouldn't expect for the price. The breakfast buffet was extensive with lots of variety, and while a bit pricey, convenient and in line with other similar offerings at other hotels. If I needed a hotel in Basel again, I'd definitely stay at the Hotel Basel.

"Good Downtown Hotel"
We stayed for one day for sight-seeing. We found a good restaurant within 5 minutes walk for dinner. The next day we asked the receptionists for walking directions to the historic buildings and museums, and spent a lovely day walking around old town Basel. The hotel stored our luggage past check out time so we could walk as long as we wanted, and then arranged our taxi to the airport. We had a very enjoyable day.

Staff was great. Right in the center of old town. Hotel gives you tram tickets for getting around. Take the 15 -16 tram for an hour long over view of the city. You can hop on and off. Not a hotel issue but prices at shops and restaurants are very expensive.

"Classy Hotel in the heart of Old Town of Basel"
The hotel location is right in the heart of the old city of Basel and within walking distance of the University of Basel, restaurants, shops, and the river. The rooms are spacious by European standards and the quality of furnishings and toiletries is good. The hotel staff is responsive and efficient. A bonus is the public transit pass that you get on check-in. The public transit system in Basel is excellent and convenient.

The Hotel Basel is located in the center of old town Basel, a perfect location. The hotel has an old wing and a new wing, both renovated in a contemporary style. We were in the renovated old wing in a large room with the original windows and rafters. I can't speak about the new wing except that we were told the rooms are a little more standard and the same.

"One night stay following Rhine River cruise"
After a week in Amsterdam and a week-long cruise down the Rhine, we opted to stay one night in Basel, the final destination, and we were very glad we did. Basel is a really lovely town, and Hotel Basel was a very nice place for our last night of holiday. Very friendly front desk staff explained that we received a one-day transit pass free with our stay, which enabled us to hop on and off the quaint trams (even though almost everywhere you want to go is in walking distance). Free Wifi worked very well (especially after a week of slow Wifi on the ship). And they offered a complimentary glass of prosecco or wine in the hotel restaurant--a nice touch. Also, the initially-stocked soft drinks and water in the fridge in the room were complimentary, and there was a chocolate on our pillows. Room rate was about $170. Considering how expensive Switzerland is (drinks and meals), we thought the room rate was appropriate to the level of hotel and service. Bathtub is very slippery, and you need to request a mat if you feel the need--I recommend you do it. Room foyer and door to bathroom are very narrow, which I found odd. We ate at an Italian restaurant located on the street behind the hotel, and the food was outstanding.

"Best hotel overall in Basel"
Hotel Basel is the best combination of location, neighborhood, comfort, dining options in Basel. Not on the Rhine, but instead in a lovely little neighborhood one block from the Marktplatz surrounded by shops and great casual dining options. The hotel's own food is also pretty good. Excellent Front Desk. For Basel the rooms are spacious while keeping the traditional Swiss feel of wood panelling and tank-like doors. Baths are "efficient" but might be cramped for some. Excellent beds. The usual HVAC issues - the air seemed neither warm nor cool no matter how you set it. Ask for higher floors - the street noise (cafe chatter, not trucks) echoes around the narrow alleys.
