Hotel Rochat is located just outside the city centre, next to the university buildings. Nice, clean rooms, in a quiet location. When booking, you can request a room facing away from the street, in which case you can easily sleep with the windows open. 24-hour reception.

Just for one night in September It is a lovely old style hotel with modern conveniences and good access to the city. There is an excellent transport system for which the hotel gave us a free pass. Our highlight was a walk along the Rhine where all the locals jumped in and floated downstream and|or picniced on the bank. Suggest...

We have just returned from a five day break in this hotel. The hotel is in a super location with very easy access to the Market Square. The room we had was huge, bright, airy and extremely comfortable. We had paid for bed and breakfast and were in no way disappointed. The breakfast was far superior to many 3 star...

Convenient location and there is a good transport deal for those who require this service, otherwise walking is better. Rooms are clean, although the quality of mattress are not good enough for comfort. And the shower requires an improvement to be more pleasant. Friendly and promptly service.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Rochat, unfortunately only for one night. The location is perfect : in the old town, 2 mins walk from the river and only 15-20 mins drive to Basel-Mulhouse airport. The breakfast buffet was delicious and varied. We particularly appreciated the great welcome and very helpful and friendly staff.

We arrived late at night to this hotel as the trams were being diverted for track maintenance. It was good to know that we only needed to buy one ticket at CHF4.40 which covered the coach to the central station and the tram to the hotel. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room in the annex. This proved...

Lovely hotel, with friendly helpful staff. The only downside was the fact that our room looked directly on to a very nice church, where the clock chimed on the hour throughout the night. Apart from that it was lovely. Very airy room that was spotlessly clean. Just be careful what room you are allocated.

Stayed for a week when the weather was warm. First night we realised the room had no air condition (except a noisy electric fan). When I asked to change they had a room with air conditioning and quickly changed our things into the new room for the following night. Very friendly and helpful staff. With our stay we were given...

Located next to Old Town Basel, the University and Hospital makes getting to local sites easy. However, the only available parking is city parking, making it about a 5 minute walk to the hotel from parking. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but finding your room can be challenging. Since my wife has limited mobility, I ask for a ground...
