About The Passage, Basel

Urban design hotel in the center of Basel

Minutes to the old town

The Passage is built on the site of the city wall between the old and new towns, in the center of Basel. It's a 10-minute walk to Basel Central Station, and Messe Basel is a 20-minute bus trip, while high-end shopping on Freie Strasse is a 10-minute stroll through the old town.

2 dozen museums

If you're strolling the old town, medieval Münster cathedral tower has great views. Basel is an art lover's paradise - Kunstmuseum, a 10-minute walk, covers art from 15th-20th centuries, and you can stroll another 20 minutes along the Rhine to kinetic art at Museum Jean Tinguely.

Urban tranquility

A workout in the fitness center and an organic breakfast at tranquil, contemporary Patio will get your day off to a harmonious start. Tapas and cocktails at the bar, or in the peaceful courtyard, are a great way to unwind after a hard day's work or sightseeing.

Free WiFi and iPod® docks

The 53 rooms have an uncluttered, minimalist design, with muted colors and lots of natural light, plus a large desk and Nespresso® machine. You can stay entertained thanks to free WiFi, an iPod® dock, and a 55-inch smart HDTV.
