We loved our stay at the Hotel Basel. We were upgraded to a suite. We stayed here before we left on a Viking River Cruise. We could not of asked for a better location in Basel what a beautiful city. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 414 which was the top floor. We loved the location.

The Hotel Basel is in a great central location and has many amenities including a "free" refillable mini-bar with beer, soda, and water. The staff is friendly and helpful and can communicate in English. They loaned me and electricity adapter and have free wifi included with your stay.

We spent one night here after a Rhine River Cruise and found it to be an excellent location for walking tours of Basel. The room was very comfortable and quite and a relatively good price for what we found to be the most expensive city we have been to in Europe.

We stayed three days at Hotel Basel and found that it was very well placed--close to the main plaza, beautiful Rathouse (government building), and old city gates. Great little cafes, bakery, and shops to stroll about. The restaurant served wonderful authentic food and we ate many of our meals there. It was easy to take a taxi from there to go to France and spend a day in Colmar, which was fabulous. All of the staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. We will definitely stay there again!

Best location. Easy access to everything, and to experience the charm of Basel. Hotel staff very friendly. It's nice to her able to find a good restaurant within a few minutes walk. Try Pinar in the University district - my favorite in Basel!

Hotel was well located in old town but also very close to Marktplatz square and bridge (10 min walk to convention center). Hotel staff were great, very nice, very helpful, and even made me an espresso when the cafe was closed. Rooms were comfortable, very well designed, quiet, good wifi.

Close to the central square but far enough away from the noise of the square. We had a large room on the top floor. It had a nice sitting area with a tv of it's own. The hotel was very clean, the room was well appointed and service was excellent. It is not a luxury hotel but niether is the price. We considered staying at the Les Trois Rois, but after the fact were glad we made this choice.
