"Old town Basel's best"
What a fun place at the holidays! The town was brightly lit, and this hotel was covered with Christmas lights and bows and trees. They made extra effort to offer treats like free mini bar, chocolate bonbons on the pillows, etc. It's a great place with a very good restaurant as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Basel Dear Terry Thank you so much for your frindly words. We do appreciate that very much. Best regards Your Hotel Basel Team
"A Good Choice"
Our 2 nights at this hotel were comfortable, the staff was attentive and helpful. Restaurant and breakfast buffet not the same as U.S. standards but still good. Location was a short walk off the main street where buses and trams were always available. Overall I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"very small rooms for 4 stars"
great location, very small room for the cost and the supposed 4 stars, extra charge for bkfstGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Basel Dear guest Thank you that you posted a comment on Hotel Basel. We know our rooms are not super spacious - but we are situated in the historical part of old town and space is limited. Best regards Your Hotel Basel Team
"Best of Basel"
Excellent location in old town within walking distance of major historical attractions, shopping, and restaurants. Hotel price includes a transit pass for the duration of your stay and free drinks from the mini bar. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are quite large and well appointed for European standards. You can't go wrong with this […] choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Wonderful.easy commute to train station. Tons to do and see within walking distance. Great staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel but not the Banks Mansion"
Unfortunately, we had stayed at the Banks Mansion in Amsterdam prior to checking in to the Hotel Basel. No comparison as to how friendly and warm the management of Banks Mansion were compared to Hotel Basel. No complimentary wine/cheese bar, breakfast, etc. Nice enough place and staff but not as friendly and warm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Like a home right in the center of Basel"
Very nice experience staying here. I stayed here after a couple of weeks at one of the big hotel chains near SBB station and definitely the hotel Basel makes you feel like home. So I stayed there every time I come back to Basel on business. The staff is also great to deal with; nice restaurant; very comfortable and modern / clean rooms and surrounded […] by all restaurants and old touristic town. Highly recommended.

"Wonderful hotel right in the center of the city."
THIS WAS A PLEASING SURPRISE IN THE CENTRAL AREA OF BASEL. 1 BLOCK TO THE CITY MARKET AND THE TRAM CENTRAL STOP. HOTEL Offerred us FREE TRAM PASSES DURING OUR STAY. The Central train station was only 4 stops from the hotel and only took minutes to get there. Bed was a little firm for our comfort, but everything else was just wonderful. Would absolutely […] recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"VERY nice hotel !"
Location is great, right in the downtown, modern facilities, Very clean, staff is Great plus all amenities including the restaurant and food are very good. Planning on staying at this hotel on ally future trips to BaselGenuine Expedia guest review
Not the fanciest hotel in town but everything was fine and the location was great. The questions in the survey are skewed for good ratings--for instance, no questions about food--but we had a good experience there. The front desk staff was very friendly, the restaurant unpretentious, but not cheap, the breakfast was surprisingly good. Nothing fancy […] about this hotel but it was fine and the location can't be beat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel close to city central"
We were looking for a clean hotel for a one night stay after our 14 day river cruise and the Hotel Basel was perfect. It is centrally located, and near trams and great places to eat. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend Hotel Basel.Genuine Expedia guest review
First off, loved the hotel and the location. The staff was the best and the breakfast was delicious. Really staff was all so pleasant and helpful, that was a nice change from some other places. We only stayed there one night but are thinking of going back next summer. Our room was very modern - I'm not much of a fan of modern furnishings - but still […] comfortable.

One night stay before a Rhine River cruise. Excellent location to see and walk around Old Basel. While room was on the small side, it was comfortable and the staff was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Basel is a good choice logistically."
The hotel is strategically located in Base. They provide tram tickets right when you get there. They will hold your bags while you travel to Budapest (big deal this). Their internet is strong and they give you codes that should work at some places throughout the city. They are right in the middle of downtown. Overall, a good place to stay and great […] base logistically. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best of the Best !"
We ran into a lady in Lima Peru who lived in Bosel. She told us all her family and friends that come to vist her stay there. We arrived early after leaving a Viking River cruise. The gentleman at the desk had a room ready and went into great detail about the hotel, free Wifi and and a free 3 day metro pass. Wonderful room, clean, and a nice comfortable […] bed. Great location for restraunts and shopping I would not stay anywhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This is a great Business or Personal Travel Hotel"
This is a great Business or Personal Travel Hotel located in the heart of the old city. I rated it highly for within its own class not against Hotels such as the Three Kings. It is good value for money. I am originally from Basel and use it for my visits.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Basel Thank you so much for your nice comment. That will help us and other guests. Hopefully you will be back to Hotel Basel soon! Best regards Your Hotel Basel Team
"Nice hotel in the old city"
We arrived in Basel early, but we were able to get into our rooms immediately. The location is in the Old City, so we could walk out the door and walk the streets to the many sights and walk along the Rhine. Staff is very cordial and helpful. The hotel manager stopped by twice to be sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely stay there agai […] n. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We had a wonderful experience in Basel in large part due to Hotel Basel. Looking forward to a return visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute Room, Great Staff, Great Location"
I found this as a less expensive option in Basel for a last minute reservation, and it was great. Excellent location 30 seconds from Marktplatz tram, close to river front and pedestrian shops / restaurants. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was excellent. I used room service 3 times in 10 days because the food was decent and room service prices […] not as high as expected. I will always check the rates of this place and give it the first shot for my business whenever I come to Basel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A wonderful and quirky hotel"
This hotel does not look particularly fantastic as you drive up to it, but please do not let this fool you in any way.... I received a wonderfully warm welcome, the staff was also very helpful in guiding and giving information about the hotel, the trams from market square to the location I was doing business. They also gave me a Tram pass for 3 days. […] How wonderful! Lovely, quiet comfortable bedroom, had a great sleep! All the drinks in the mini-bar were free! Breakfast in the Basement is super - some lovely music, great lighting, and a large variety of continental and hot breakfasts. And after work, or a day in the city, I enjoyed a lovely and fun evening with some of the Bar staff and lovely clients - some lovely wines and super food for evening meals. If you get the chance - do stay in this hotel....it is delightful hotel, great staff and will make you smile!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Basel Dear Fiona We are happy that you liked your stay and your frindly words are more than welcome! Have a great time and hope to see you soon again.
We stayed at Hotel Basel over night to board our river cruise trip. The front desk staff are very friendly and efficient. The man checking us in made a great suggestion for a walk. If we would have gone the way I thought, we would have ended up in an industrial end of town. Beautiful city and the hotel's location is perfect!! Right in the middle of […] city centre and close to market square. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A central oasis in Basel"
Had a great stay at the Hotel Basel. Good central location just steps to the Market Square and wonderful shops and boutiques. Great breakfast restaurant and nice main floor dining bistro. The area can be a little noisy in the evenings for sleeping but the rooms are equipped with nice pillows that you can put over your head to dampen the noise. Helpful, […] friendly staff.

"Attention to Detail in a Great Location"
Loved Basel, loved the hotel. It is all about their attention to details to please their clients. We arrived off a Viking River cruise at 1000 and hotel staff went out of their way to rearrange things to find us a room that was ready. Free transit card, and 2 bottles of water, beer & coke, plus free hi-speed wi-fi. Great location in centre of old town, […] quiet, yet only one block from main marketplace square. Large recently renovated room with king bed and a bathtub. Had a complimentary glass of wine at the hotel street restaurant Le Boulevard and enjoyed two salads, a perfect summer evening dinner. Staff was very helpful and helped us arrange transfer options to train station. Wish we had more time to enjoy this vibrant clean city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Love everything about the hotel and the location"
The staff are very friendly, the location is very quaint and charmingGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location in the middle of town with valet parking (pricey). Nice for a weekend away or as a start/end to a trip out of Basel Airport. I never like those Scandinavian low beds with ultra soft pillows and just a throw as Ifind it hard to sleep on them (I generally sleep like a log) but its hard to find a hotel in Germany without them now.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Les vieux lits à ressort sont une catastrophe. grincements et sursaut au moindre mouvement du conjoint. Nous nous en sommes plaints à l'hôtel qui nous a informé que les lits étaient en cours de changement mais qu'il faudrait encore quelques mois avant que tous les matelas soient changés. Dommage. Pour le reste hôtel sans prétention et service simpliste […] mais attentionné. L'emplacement est par contre idéal pour visiter la ville, faire du shopping et sortir.
