Hotel Basel is a Friendly Hotel in the Heart of Basel. Rooms are small, but clean and well maintained. The breakfast staff are very friendly, but if you are looking for a good egg you will be disappointed. They serve a 'scrambled egg' that is more of a mass of egg in a steam dish. The fruits and breads are...

Great hotel, the restaurant was crazy expensive but the room was awesome! Don't use Uber to get to or from the hotel, the street is blocked for only taxis. Mini bar complimentary with yummy beer, great bath and tub and the bed was super comfy! TV hilarious old 80's shows all day!

Stayed here for a few nights in a business trip. The location is superb - right in the cbd handy to food, shopping and sight seeing. It's effortless to get there from the airport.

I visit Basel a lot for work, can't count the trips, and I always stay here. Years ago I used to bounce around, but at some point I quit trying others and just stay at the Hotel Basel every trip. I travel all over constantly, and this is one of the only hotels I have ever rated. What I love....

Hotel Basel is the only hotel I stay in when in Bael. They take nothing for granted. They always strive to do better. You feel it the minute you walk up to the reception desk. They make you feel welcome and at home, especially if you are returning. The rooma are immaculate, the service impecable and the breakfast fantastic. What...

Stayed at the Hotel Basel for several nights visiting with friends. Hotel Basel is in a good location for seeing the city. The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast is in the basement. They had a good selection of breakfast foods. Staff at breakfast were attentive and helpful.

We stayed here and enjoyed it very much at the end of our Viking river cruise before going to Paris. We were looking for a place for one night. Excellent location, neat, clean room and very spacious. I would highly recommend this hotel! Walking distance to the Christmas market jaunt about everything else.

We spent two nights here as a family of four (kids ages 10 & 13) to explore the Christmas markets. We had the suite, which was huge and comfortable. The only thing we didn't like was the business-hotel-like decor. The room lacked charm. However, it was very clean and the bathroom was well-appointed. The kids loved their mini Santa hats...

We visited Basel to explore the Christmas markets and spent two nights in this hotel which is situated in the pedestrian area in the city centre. The hotel is ideally situated for the markets and for walks along the Rhine. It was beautifully decorated inside and outside for Christmas. We booked a large superior room, which was in the old...

Location could not be better. Right in the center of Basel, close to Christmas markets and shopping. Rooms - ask for street facing room at the booking. We were initially given the room facing courtyard (read: wall). After much back and forth we were moved to a street facing room ( a much much smaller room) but not before we...
