This hotel was wonderful! The rooms were nicely decorated and quite roomy (remember, this is Europe). The bathroom was modern. Rooms were very quiet. We sat downstairs in the small intimate lobby and enjoyed cocktails, accompanied by a singer/ pianist. It was wonderful! Then we went outside just across the street to the Coop Hotel - Basel Hotel Victoria restaurant...

Near from the train station, not far away from the historical center 10min by foot. The breakfast is quite expensive around 25CHF. For a room at 100CHF. Swiss prices? The welcome was excellent. I recommend it for business travel

Dear Fred Many thanks for your stay at the City Inn hotel as well as for sharing your experience with others.

This budget hotel shares entrance and reception with 4-star Hotel Euler. To get to your room requires guidance by the staff and finding your way back to your room later on might be a puzzling challenge as the City hotel is located in interconnected building with various levels and not necessarily elevator access, so be careful if you cannot climb...

Dear guest We thank you for choosing the City Inn hotel for your stay in Basel as well as for sharing your precise review with other travellers. There is nothing to add, maybe just that there are also larger rooms available, e.g. double rooms or deluxe rooms offering more comfort and elevator access. Thanks again for the good score and...

Close to rail station, very comfortable room, with grade A shower, wifi also available. Check in was very friendly and welcoming with all the info you need. Everyone in Basel seem so friendly and everything runs on time (as you would expect) The surrounding area is quite but we were not expecting a party town.

Room was really small and under the roof and had a strange mushy smell in the room. The AC in the room made a lot of noise. You have to climb 2 flight of stairs to get to your room after going half way up with the lift. The staff are friendly and nice.

I liked the rooms. The room was mostly white with bits of neon. My room had a lot of sunshine and a really comfortable bed. The end result was a funky, tasteful and comfortable room. You have the option of not opting for breakfast which makes the room cheaper. I think the hotel is good value for money. It is...

Cannot thank the staff at City Inn enough!

Fine for a night and the location is superb for public transport but nothing to write home about and price was not that much lower. They are owned and managed by the Euler hotel people so you do share the lobby with them and their guests.
