We stayed in this hotel for a business/vacation trip. The hotel is well located in Basel for walking and accessing much of this beautiful city on foot or public transportation. The staff was very pleasant and the breakfast was excellent and in a beautiful space. As other reviewers have said, the hotel is also on a quiet street so external noise is not an issue. However, we found the walls to be thin and for two nights were kept up late at night by another guest's television viewing. Also, while the rooms are well-laid out and everything you need is in them, they are tiny rooms (even by NY standards). For a single individual on a business trip that would be fine. But for 2 people, it was difficult to share the bath, and walk around the room at the same time. Rooms are much more suited for one person than two. Also, there are no views of the river-front which is such a lovely part of the city.

Dear Watsonsfriends
Thank you that you took time and rated the Hotel Basel.
Hotel rooms in historic city centers in europe are rather smal, even compared with NY. But we do have bigger rooms.Just mention it for your next reservation.
We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again.

My first time at the Hotel Basel, but not my last, for sure. I was on a business trip and had left my mactop charger at home. Yes, the hotel reception had one, yes they could lend me fit, yes for my entire stay... Thank you guys. The room was small, but sophisticated, the service was first class but not formal or stuffy, the breakfast staff were charming, friendly, but not intrusive. If the location had been any more central I would have been in the main square fruit and veg market. thank you.

I had the pleasure spending New Years Eve at Hotel Basel and beginning the year with a wonderful breakfast in the antique cave restaurant. I could not imagine ending the old and beginning the new at a better place. Thank you all for being just great hosts! Food fantastic, employees incredible nice, room just perfect ... etc, etc, etc

Stayed at Hotel Basel for five nights and it was perfect. The room was large and clean, staff super friendly and in the most perfect location. Right in the center of old town with a very short walk to trams, shopping, river etc. The marketplatz is a 2 minute walk away and great for grabbing a quick bite to eat. Would most definitely stay here again when in Basel.

You hope for, or dream about, a hotel that offers service that is courteous and responsive, pristine rooms with thoughtful housekeepers, and a restaurant that provides consistently good food for every meal of the day.

That was my rare experience with Hotel Basel. I stayed for five nights on business and not only couldn't fault the hotel, but was delighted by how helpful the staff were in response to any request - as well as how well they anticipated needs before you could think to ask.

This is the place to stay in downtown Basel, a couple of blocks to the ancient town hall, within walking distance to many historic sites, as well as trams and busses.

I staied at the Basel Hotel to attend a one week training.
The room was clean and the staff hearty. The hotel is really in the center of Basel and next to a tram stop.
I also used the internal car parking and my car has been managed by a chauffeur service.
