Located next to the Spalentor city gate and just a short walk from the nice old town of Basel. Nice room, good breakfast and very helpfull and friendly staff members. Reasonably priced. Possible to park for free on the street outside the hotel.

We spent two nights with Hotel Spalentor prior to taking a river cruise up the Rhine. The hotel is located in a great spot - just a tram ride away from the city center, but in a quiet residential area. The room was nicely appointed and well-sized with a king size bed. I loved that the tub was deep and...

I, my husband, and our 2.5-year-old stayed here for a single night, and we will certainly return when we come back to Basel. Everyone at reception was extremely kind and accommodating, and we were upgraded to a larger room without asking. Spa robes and disposable slippers were a nice touch. The bed was excellent and huge.

We only stayed one night but found the hotel very comfortable and in a good location near shopping, restaurants, and the river cruise embarkation point. The staff was charming & accommodating, even allowing us to check in early. An enjoyable stay overall.
