Great, helpful staff. Nice room. Near everything, an easy walk to old town and market square. On tram line to railroad station. Got free transit pass because booked at hotel. Very classy! Very clean and well-equipped, including robes and slippers.

Room was very spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Only complaints: I thought the mattress was too soft and the down comforter was too hot to sleep under (a problem I see at many other hotels, not just this one). Its location is very well situated close to the tram/bus routes and within easy walking distance... More

Apart the tramway passing along the hotel until late, the hotel is nice. The location is good. My bedroom was large and clean. Just a remark about the bedroom which was a bit small and its entrance very narrow.

Hotel Spalentor is well situated for walking around the old part of Basel and is just across the road from one of the ancient city gates. Very swift and efficient check-in with plenty of help in finding our way around. No restaurant though so you need to go out to many eateries nearby. Very comfortable and spacious room.

Nice small hotel, good breakfast. Large rooms and very convenient location. They only have few parking spaces but there are several public nearby. The bath is too small and the shower a bit difficult to use.

The bathroom was well supplied with basic toiletries and we even had dressing gowns. Shame the towels were so hard!

Clean and new everything, real coffee in the rooms for breakfast, reasonable prices, polite and friendly staff who go out of their way to help, excellent breakfast and excellent location. Other hotels will cost more and will be disappointing. This place is the opposite.
