My visit in this hotel was a pleasant time. The hotel was quiete and with an excellent service from the staff. The policy concerning smoking in this hotel was very good and very surprisingly. Will stay again-YES Kind regards from a smoker. Vibeke Weirup

This hotel was recently remodeled and now is quite stylish. The rooms and very nicely furnished in a modern style. I thought it was quite functional. The hotel is convenient to the Basel Bad train station. (Note this is not the Basel SBB train station; Basel has two main train stations.) The staff was friendly and accommodating. I wanted a...

I stayed at the Dorint last week whilst on business in Basel. I'd heard some mixed views about the hotel, but upon arriving was pleasantly surprised.The hotel Reception was spacious, light and very clean. I arrived in my room to find a contemporary style room and very nice bathroom with all of the mod cons you would expect. Unfortunately my...

We stayed here one night - booked a promotional rate on Expedia. We arrived quite late, and most of the restaurants were closed. We were ready to fork over $$$ for hotel food when we discovered that they offered a personal pizza @ a reasonable price. They also waive room service fee if you come down and get the pizza....

We stayed there during the Art Basel and of course they have milked this by increasing their prices but offering poor service. The room had no AC despite its steep price! This is the only hotel that I ever booked where only one breakfast was included in the price of the room. The location is perfect but if you get...

I've spent many nights in various Novotels and was quite disappointed by this one, especially by the tiny room and the way I was greeted. At Novotel, I usually feel like a valued customer - the front desk is usually cheerful and friendly. Not this time. When I saw the room, I called back to confirm that this was indeed...

Having read the reviews of various hotels in Basel - and having got a great deal at this hotel - I chose the Novotel for a weekend stay. Overall - the hotel is very clean, neat, decent breakfast, modern bathroom & room fittings, fairly friendly & efficient and we had a good enough short stay. The location is very convenient...

The Basel Dorint is now a Novotel. I've stayed there very regularly since it opened and find the staff both friendly and helpful. Single rooms are very small (a feature of Basel hotels in general including the nearby Europe and Ramada). There are some family rooms on the top floor. The hotel is next to the Messe and around the...

Have stayed at this hotel many times on business over the last 18 months. I really like this hotel. It is always spotlessly clean. The backrooms all have air-con. It has a small friendly bar and it has a good spread for breakfast. The whole hotel has a slightly less formal air about it and it is one of my...
