About Hyperion Hotel Basel, Basel

Sleek glass high-rise in Basel's business center

Next to the fairgrounds

Just steps from Basel's congress center and fairgrounds, Hyperion Hotel Basel offers a convenient location and great views. The Old Town across the River Rhine, with its cobblestone streets and medieval churches, is about a 20-minute walk.

Barefoot in Basel

You'll be a 20-minute walk from Basel Historical Museum, located at Barfüsserkirche, or "bare-feet church," with artifacts dating back to the Middle Ages. For more sights, the castle-like Gate of Spalen, with turrets and tiles, is one of Switzerland's most beautiful buildings.

Unbeatable city views

The hotel provides free passes to the tram, which stops right by the entrance; guests also appreciate the gym and sauna. The Timeless bar offers a glimpse of Basel, while the view from floor-to-ceiling windows at Restaurant Gaumenfreund is also hard to beat. A breakfast buffet is served each morning.

Free WiFi, city views

Spread over 10 floors, the 224 rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with city views. You can work comfortably with free WiFi and a desk, and unwind with a drink from the minibar and a movie on the satellite TV.

Hyperion Hotel Basel, Basel
Building issues & spotty wifi
This hotel continues to be plagued by technical/building problems. I was given a room upgrade due to my last stay there being fraught with issues. This time my door ceased opening and the entire locking mechanism had to be replaced. My second night I was woken at 2am by a horribly loud whistling sound every 20 minutes; it took 3 hours to discover it was the shower drain. The wifi is *very* spotty and drops every 8 minutes (just like my last stay). The gym is small with 1 treadmill, 2 elyptical, 1 stair-stepper, 1 rower. The equipment is beautiful but not functional. The treadmill has no place to put: wallet, ipad, phone or even a room key. And static electricity builds up on the arm rests constantly shoking your elbows during use. While the staff are friendly and the location is good, I would consider waiting until the hotel has worked out all its renovation kinks so as not to become a beta tester for their "updated" building.

A bonus night not well spent
We stayed for business matters at this hotel, which is conveniently located. Upon our arrival, the receptionist ‘upgraded’ us with a more spacious room. It turned out that the room with the nice view over Basel had two flaws: the modern shower was smelly and the AC was way too weak. After informing the reception, a technician came and promised to fix the issues. Once we came back late at night, we did not experience any improvement ;)

Spotty wifi/rowdy guests/power problems
Wifi is spotty and depending on your room location maybe untenable for any use. In a room further away from the elevator the connection didn't hold more than 5 minutes. The renovation is nice but the power in my room and indeed the entire floor went out for more than 30 minutes leaving the room unbearably hot. And one night at 2am I was woken up by rowdy guests banging on a door for well over 5 minutes.

Trip to Europe, 2017
Great location, easy walk to the downtown. The breakfast was great as well. The only challenges were that the Autumn Fair was setting up right around the hotel, so there was some inconvenience caused by that, and they were constructing the building right next door, which caused noise and issues when driving and walking (you had to detour around the zone, you couldn't walk on that side of the street, and it was noisy).
