We chose this Colombi being a member of Leading Hotels of the World, & we thought it was a good bet we might be well treated there--even though we had never heard of it. Well treated? We were upgraded & I'm happy to report..that advantage or no --- the staff were uniformly outstanding in attending to ..& sometimes even anticipating... More

We have just come back from a 5 day stay at the Hotel Colombi. The entire experience from start to finish was just perfect. We were collected from Basel Airport in the hotel's luxury car and the transfer to our room was seamless.

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. The hotel is located in a great location. We felt like we could walk to everything. The hotel itself if absolutely gorgeous from the lobby, hallways, room, etc.,! No detail left out. Our room was spacious, comfortable and we loved the toiletries, luscious towels and turn down service each night. We have... More

An outstanding hotel and restaurant, but if you like to sleep with the windows open, it can be loud during the night. It's located on the main drag where people walk, talk and shout as they are returning from the bars late at night. Or you can follow my husband's recommendation and wear ear plugs. Pretty pricey, but definitely worth... More

We stayed at the hotel to visit the black forest and were quite pleased with everything. The hotel and our room were quite nice, but not overly extravagant; the electric shade over our window was incredible in that it would keep our room 100% dark, even during the day (although this did lead to some oversleeping!). Service was very good... More

I didn't stay at the hotel, just passed by for a nice glass of champagne in the afternoon at the Terrace. It was a nice sunny autumn day and i could have stayed there all afternoon watching and enjoying the atmosphere. Prompt and professional service.

The rooms are spacious and it's warmth and cozy plus a good breakfast spread. However, the room does not have complimentary coffee/tea or kettle. Was only given 1 bottle of complimentary mineral water on the day we arrived. Ironing facilities is on request only.

This description could also apply to the clientele, or at least, those that used to frequent this 5 star hotel in the city centre. Unfortunately the hotel has not really kept up with the times.
