I've been going to the Basel Watch Fair for nearly 30 years, and have stayed in approximately 20 different places, including commuting from Zurich. This small, family-run hotel was short on frills but long on personality and customer service. I've already booked us for next year.

I have been traveling to Basel for 30 years for the BaselWorld watch fair and stayed in many different hotels along the way. This year, i stayed at Hotel Locanda --a very small, no-frills hotel. The cons- as i said, small, no frills. The pros: amazingly friendly family staff, good breakfast and - best of all- a block away from... More

Hoewever, it was extremely expensive only because it was during a very busy week in Basel, company paid but since you wouldn't even be provided with shower gel or champoo in the bathroom... More

I think the key thing that makes a hotel a pleasant place to be is the friendliness of the welcome. You get that at this hotel. As the other reviewers have said, its not super fancy but thats reflected in the price. You are located in the less pricey part of Basel, but it is still nice. Basel is very... More

I've stayed in lots of hotels in Basel, and the Locanda is by far the best for me. It is always spotlessly clean, there is never any traffic noise so very easy to sleep, and the location very close to Messeplatz is excellent. The rooms I've stayed in have been adequate in size, with ensuite shower and toilet, and everything... More

The Hotel Locanda is not super fancy. It isn't a luxury hotel and it doesn't offer spas and saunas. What it is, is clean, handy to town, and pretty reasonably priced. The room I have stayed in (I have stayed there twice) is generously sized, with two double beds. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms clean. The room is... More
