Basel isn't cheap and all other hotels I've previously stayed at just keep getting pricier. I opted for this through Hotelopia and wasn't disappointed. It's only a B&B but is well placed for the central restaurants. Sited in a nice quiet part of town the hotel is still only 15 mins from the Congress Centre (tram 6). Stayed on 3rd...

Great hotel near old town. Breakfast extra but worth having as good selection and two different prices . 5 mins walk to old town . Hotel gave free bus and tram pass for the time we where there. Got a taxi from the airport 35 francs but went back on no 11 tram to station then caught the bus to...

All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The lady that greeted us on reception spoke amazing English, and from the sound of it had no problem speaking in Italian to the guests before us. Included in the price of the room was a metro pass, which enabled us to use all buses and trams free of charge for the...

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...
