Very near everything if staying for a short break. Staff helpful .Room 414 which is a suite quite small attic ceiling not good if tall and abit expensive. Breakfast good but limited hot options no poached eggs which was disappointing.Beds and linen excellent.

I have just come back from my 29th stay at the Hotel Basel over 30 years of traveling to Basel, and as usual it was a very pleasant stay. From the minute you enter the lobby and receive a warm greating from the front desk staff till my departure 8 days later everyone went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect.

This is an excellent hotel located in the very centre of Basel. Rooms are clean, comfortable and very quiet, the staff were all charming and very helpful. The breakfast was rather expensive so we ate out instead - at the local department store.

Oh, I love, love the breakfast. Good selection. Love their beds.

The location is perfect to explore Basel by foot, and Johann Wanner is next door for must have Christmas Tree decorations. However, when you need a cab or a friend to pick you up on the weekend, be prepared for stares from pedestrians. Cars etc are allowed for pick up and delivery in that area, but nothing else. So, the police may check to ensure that your car is not just passing through as a short cut.

Room Tip: Some rooms need a few steps of staircases to reach to. If you are a wheelchair user or you have a ba...

Helpful service small but adequate room , slightly tight bathroom but well equipped , nice restaurant and bar options . I appreciated the free public transport coupon during my stay and a free drink voucher as well as free wifi . Breakfast was adequate . The main benefit of the hotel is the old town location which makes it a great base for an evening walk . Three tram lines (including the number 8 ) connect the nearby Marktplatz with the SBB station so avoiding an expensive taxi ride . The public transport coupon included tram to the station and then bus to the airport . There is a good in house restaurant and many good choices nearby . the msall room / bathroom is the only reason I did not give this 5 STAR rating

Lovely location, friendly staff, a home away from home!
Close to amenities, and with a nice in house restaurant too.
I would recommend this highly for business or pleasure. The price can vary a lot depending on availability, but that is Basel for you, since it is very popular for large conventions

I have been going to Basel for business for a long time (many years) and have stayed at a number of fine hotels there. But, whenever I go I always try to stay at the Hotel Basel. Although the rooms are small by American standards they are impeccably maintained, and stocked as if they had read your mind about what you may have a taste for. The hotel's location in "old Basel" couldn't be better. You are surrounded by small shops, winding streets, and really historic buildings. One block away is the tram station with trains that go most places in the city. But the best part is the hotel staff, from the people at the front desk to the waitresses that serve you coffee with warm milk in the morning, to the people who staff the resturaunt on the ground floor. Truly a wonderful place to stay. And if you are really lucky you may be there when they have one of their special wine dinners where they team up with Ulrichs across the street (one of the best wine/spirit shops in Basel) for a great wine tasting dinner on the outdoor patio. Something not to be missed if available during your visit.
