I stopped by this hotel bar thinking I’d have dinner but the menu was limited with heavy options. The bartender and draft beer were great though and the Hotel Victoria was right upstairs across from the train station.

We spent four nights at this hotel, and enjoyed our breakfast here on all four mornings. The spread is extensive and the service is attentive. Good coffee.

I have eaten there several times during my stays at the Hotel Victoria in Basel. Food is good but a bit pricey compared to other places in the area.

Great location near train station. We were staying near the station and could not get a cab or uber near hotel so walked across the street. Weary travelers were pleased with the service and food. Great waitress. Not fancy but good food.
