Stayed here for one night over Easter. The hotel is right in the heart of the city (note, you can't actually drive to it as the area is pedestrianised) and surrounded by lots of shops, bakeries and bars. It's ideally located for walking around and seeing the sights of Basel.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming. A very nice touch was getting a travel card that allows you to use the buses and trams for free during your visit. We also found two chocolate Easter bunnies waiting for us in the room.

The room was spacious and had a massive bed, but it did lack tea / coffee making facilities.

We recently stayed at Hotel Basel for two nights in early April 2014 following a Rhine River Cruise. The hotel is in a great location for strolling around the Old City and is only a block away from the public tram line. There are many shops, bakeries, and restaurants in the immediate vicinity and it was only a 10-15 minute taxi ride to the airport. The hotel was very clean and quiet. Did not eat at either of the two hotel restaurants but had the breakfast buffet one morning which was nice but pricey with scrambled eggs and sausages being the only hot items. We arrived early but the hotel found a room for us which was very helpful. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. We needed to open the windows to cool down the room as the air conditioning system apparently wasn't online yet for the spring/summer season. I would stay there again.

We stayed 1 night this April with my wife + 2 kids and had a wonderful stay. We asked for the large room under the roof with the special bathroom (glasses). The room is very bright and large enough to stay with two kids. The hotel is very central and convenient for a visit of this lovely city. Highly recommended. Will come back.

We stayed at Hotel Basel in April 2014 for three nights before boarding our Rhine River Cruise.
The property was very nice overall. We specifically were looking for a king bed, so this hotel met that need. The room was nice, quiet and well appointed. The restaurant served a breakfast buffet that was exceptional, and pricey. The front desk staff was very helpful with maps and info on restaurants and places to see. As we traveled down the Rhine, I kept thinking about Basel. What a truly charming town.

Room Tip: Recommend third floor. Do not recommend first floor - lounge is close and makes rooms noisy.

We stayed one night on our way to onboard a river cruise. The first impression was excellent, since the hotel is located on a beautiful corner of the old town. The flowers, the entrance, and the greeting staff refreshed our moods, after a 17 hours trip from Puerto Rico.

I highly recommend this hotel, and would stay there again, if I ever go back to Basel.

We arrived early, but the hotel had our rooms ready. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The manager came by twice to be sure we had everything we needed. The room did not have a coffee pot, so she promptly got us a water kettle and instant coffee. The location is in the Old City, so we could just walk out the door of the hotel and visit the amazing old sights and walk along the Rhine. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Basel.
