Stayed here on a short visit to Basel and wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Rooms are not elaborate but nice and comfortable, very friendly staff, decent restaurant attached, and a great breakfast. Not very many other amenities in terms of gym etc. Walking distance from the main square and lots of trams, literally a few steps....

Great Hotel in a Central and Outstanding location. Very clean European size rooms. Great Breakfast as well. Excellent value in a fairy tale setting. Would highly recommend to anyone. Location is about 15-20 minute walk from the main Train station or about 20.00 Swiss francs (preferred). Euro not generally accepted anywhere here.

Dear Bernoff Thank you for your rating. Yes, Switzerland is not part of the European Union and therfore we have our own currency - the swiss franc. but at the Hotel Basel we do accept Euro. Best regards Your Hotel Basel Team
