Exceptional 10.0
Quiet room and great breakfast.
The hotel is only about 10 mins walk to the Basel SBB. Fast and friendly staff at check-in and fantastic breakfast, best breakfast buffet we've ever had. The only sad things is my daughter left her fancy water bottle at the lobby while I was checking in, after 2 hours she realized she left her bottle in the lobby and went to ask the staff at front desk and people at the bar, nobody saw it. I visited Basel in 1996, left my camera on top of a public payphone and later found it in the police station lost & found. I guess the city has change a bit since 1996.

Convenient for railway station.
Overnight stay between train trips. Very modern clean hotel. Spacious room with large bathroom. Wonderful breakfast buffet including smoked salmon, continental meats, cheeses and fruit as well as full range of hot food and the usual juices, cereals, yoghurts etc. Located near railway station but not much else. Local transports needed to get into town.

An Overnight Stay in Basel
Prior to embarking on a river cruise, my wife and I stayed overnight at the Novotel in Basel. The hotel appears to be very popular with families and the room was clean and quiet at night. Breakfast is included with the stay and the breakfast choices were excellent. The hotel is not located near many restaurants so the choices for dinner were rather limited, as we had no car and were walking. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. For example, when I asked where the port was for the river cruise ship, the person at the front desk explained there were several ports and then placed a call for me to find out which port was the relevant one. Our experience, therefore, was pleasant and consistent with what we had expected.
