East-West Riverside Hotel Basel
Ranked #37 of 52 Hotels in Basel
Reviewed 18 October 2012

This is an old building on the 'other' side of the water from the chic and expensive shopping and restaurants and cafes, but the walk across the bridge is about 3 minutes.

Once inside, it's nothing special- no frills- probably ok for the price.
