Room was extremely nice, hotel staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the city. The mobility pass to use the trains was a great additional and unexpected feature. And the location made is very accessible to Christmas Markets, museums, cathedrals, and all the sites we were looking to take advantage of in Basel.

Following a river cruise, we needed an overnight before a flight the next day. Hotel Basel was perfect--very clean and updated, friendly staff, convenient location in the "Old Town". Would definitely stay again.

Easy walk from tram stop. We were there for Christmas Markets, hotel was very convenient. Very nice room, good space. Reception area was very pleasant and the staff was fantastic. We arrived well before check in but were checked in right away. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and in a very bright room.

We stayed three nights following a wonderful Amawaterways Christmas Market Cruise. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The room was on the first floor and was very clean and comfortable. Our window opened wide so we were able to hang out and watch the world go by on a charming side street. At night you could here the songs...

Stayed here for 2 nights before a Viking River cruise last April. Booked it ourselves. Wonderful location, staff, breakfast. Found food to be expensive in Basel so the extensive breakfast is a bargain. Very fresh and well done. Can keep you going until dinner with maybe a snack in the afternoon. Would definitely stay again if ever in Basel.

Our experience at the Hotel Basel was absolutely wonderful. The staff was awesome,, from recommending restaurants to helping us with housekeeping (whose staff also was wonderful). Can't say enough about how wonderful this hotel is, how the location is perfect, and how many things there are within steps of the hotel (shops, restaurants, town squares). Thank you, Hotel Basel!
