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...

OK, it seems to be an in-place to meet for something to eat. It's close to the theater. However the food is just average at its best, service is mediocre and prices far from being justified. Disappointing.

We stayed here after a River cruise and was able to walk here from the boat. We got there early in the morning and as one would suspect, our room wasn't ready. For a small price increase a suite was ready to go. We took it and it was a great decision. The hotel is impeccably clean and is in...

We stayed at the Hotel Basel for two nights two weeks ago. The Basel Christmas markets were an easy walk away, perhaps 5 minutes. No time was wasted taking mass transit into the market place. As for the hotel itself, it was a very nice surprise. We chose it based upon Tripadvisor reviews which gave us great confidence in our...
