About
Description
Enjoy the charming and unique atmosphere in this modern city hotel, centrally located at the SBB / SNCF train station and close to the Air Terminal (bus shuttle to the EuroAirport). Quick access to Basel's More diversity: exhibition square, old town and cathedral, museums, theater, shops and cultural attractions are only a few steps away. All guests can use the public transportation for free. A friendly ambiance ensures that you feel at home in this non-smoking hotel. The 46 design rooms (all as a single or double occupancy available) in the "Economy," "Style," "Comfort" and "First" categories are soundproofed and offer a high level of comfort. Have a snack in our lobby, where we are pleased to offer you the famous "Basler Lackerli" and organic apples from a regional producer. Start your day relaxed with our "breakfast buffet with panoramic view" in the winter garden on the 8th floor. We look forward to welcoming you! Isabelle Tanachian, Holger Brombacher & the cheerful Metropol team! Less
