Room is much smaller than the pictures show. The regular size bed listed is more like a child's bed. Extremely uncomfortable.
Room was not cleaned, sheets were not changed (even after requesting multiple times) Service was full of attitude.
Excellent location in the center of everything. Simple clan rooms with a very friendly staff. EXCELLENT breakfast in a spacious setting. Steps away from the best restaurants, bars and shopping in Basel.
I had a quick to Basel, and I wanted to be near the action. The Hotel Rochat is amazingly well located. It is also impeccably clean.

Check in was quick and efficient. We were directed to our rooms which was a distance from the reception. As it is an old building, it was a a maze of corridors, steps ans 2 different elevators. The room was large, comfortable and the bathroom...More
I have stayed in a few places in Basel - this was up there with the best. A great hotel in the middle of the city. The room was spacious and modern, with the staff helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.

Hi. I'm sorry for not seeing your quesiton earlier. No there isnt a shuttleto the hotel, but at the airport there is a tram directly outside. It will take you into the city area for free (as long as you hold onto your boarding pass). You need to change trams with the scond one dropping you off about 200 metres fron the hotel. The tram system is very easy to negotiate.
The hotel will provide you with public transport free passes to use whilst you stay at the hotel, so you wont pay for any public transport.
The Viking terminal is about a fifteen minute easy walk along the river.
A great hotel with a really good breakfast as well.
Hope this helps :)

There was an elevator that I saw in the main building and there was an elevator in the newly refurbished building. I am not sure how we lucked out and got the newly refurbished building with a huge room and luxury bathroom, but we certainly enjoyed it. They didn't charge us anything extra either. So, I would ask nicely for a room in the new building and stand your ground on the price. You are three blocks in either direction from restaurants. If you go up the hill the restaurants are better. Down the hill the restaurants are more middle of the road.
