We spent two nights here as a family of four (kids ages 10 & 13) to explore the Christmas markets. We had the suite, which was huge and comfortable. The only thing we didn't like was the business-hotel-like decor. The room lacked charm. However, it was very clean and the bathroom was well-appointed. The kids loved their mini Santa hats...

We visited Basel to explore the Christmas markets and spent two nights in this hotel which is situated in the pedestrian area in the city centre. The hotel is ideally situated for the markets and for walks along the Rhine. It was beautifully decorated inside and outside for Christmas. We booked a large superior room, which was in the old...

Location could not be better. Right in the center of Basel, close to Christmas markets and shopping. Rooms - ask for street facing room at the booking. We were initially given the room facing courtyard (read: wall). After much back and forth we were moved to a street facing room ( a much much smaller room) but not before we...

OK, it seems to be an in-place to meet for something to eat. It's close to the theater. However the food is just average at its best, service is mediocre and prices far from being justified. Disappointing.

We stayed here after a River cruise and was able to walk here from the boat. We got there early in the morning and as one would suspect, our room wasn't ready. For a small price increase a suite was ready to go. We took it and it was a great decision. The hotel is impeccably clean and is in...

We stayed at the Hotel Basel for two nights two weeks ago. The Basel Christmas markets were an easy walk away, perhaps 5 minutes. No time was wasted taking mass transit into the market place. As for the hotel itself, it was a very nice surprise. We chose it based upon Tripadvisor reviews which gave us great confidence in our...

Nothing to hate, nothing to love. It is a nice clean setting with nice enough rooms settled in Basel's old town. The location is great, but the hotel doesn't inspire. If you just need a room to sleep in this place will take care of you. It's central location makes it convenient to make it over to a client meeting...

The Hotel Basel is located centrally in the old down-town center, close to the market-place and the main shopping areas. The rooms are nice, but you have to ask them for a quiet room towards the interior-court. The service is very competent and friendly. Thanks.

“An upper floor in the back area of the hotel. The hotel is in a pedestrian area and can be noisy during the tourist season.”
