We stayed here one night - booked a promotional rate on Expedia. We arrived quite late, and most of the restaurants were closed. We were ready to fork over $$$ for hotel food when we discovered that they offered a personal pizza @ a reasonable price. They also waive room service fee if you come down and get the pizza....

We stayed there during the Art Basel and of course they have milked this by increasing their prices but offering poor service. The room had no AC despite its steep price! This is the only hotel that I ever booked where only one breakfast was included in the price of the room. The location is perfect but if you get...

I've spent many nights in various Novotels and was quite disappointed by this one, especially by the tiny room and the way I was greeted. At Novotel, I usually feel like a valued customer - the front desk is usually cheerful and friendly. Not this time. When I saw the room, I called back to confirm that this was indeed...

The Basel Dorint is now a Novotel. I've stayed there very regularly since it opened and find the staff both friendly and helpful. Single rooms are very small (a feature of Basel hotels in general including the nearby Europe and Ramada). There are some family rooms on the top floor. The hotel is next to the Messe and around the...

Have stayed at this hotel many times on business over the last 18 months. I really like this hotel. It is always spotlessly clean. The backrooms all have air-con. It has a small friendly bar and it has a good spread for breakfast. The whole hotel has a slightly less formal air about it and it is one of my...
