We were positively surprised when we arrived to the hotel. The attention was awesome and the hotel is very nice. The rooms and all the locations are totally clean with a very beautiful view. The breakfast "buffet" is delicious! It totally worth it. If I come back I'd not hesitate to stay Hotel Rochat again!

This hotel is very conveniently placed to walk to the river and the old town. However, it is not actually situated next to the river, which makes the opening picture on the website a little misleading. The bedroom we were given was very spacious and very quiet. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied. Reception staff were very helpful. I...

We were very fortunate to choose Hotel Rochat since our stay in Basel was a relatively long one (six nights) and we wanted a cozy, comfortable, spacious room. We received exactly what we were hoping for - and much more. I can't say enough good things about the staff. All of them, from reception to dining room, were very helpful,...

Basel isn't cheap and all other hotels I've previously stayed at just keep getting pricier. I opted for this through Hotelopia and wasn't disappointed. It's only a B&B but is well placed for the central restaurants. Sited in a nice quiet part of town the hotel is still only 15 mins from the Congress Centre (tram 6). Stayed on 3rd...

All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The lady that greeted us on reception spoke amazing English, and from the sound of it had no problem speaking in Italian to the guests before us. Included in the price of the room was a metro pass, which enabled us to use all buses and trams free of charge for the...

Hotel Rochat is located just outside the city centre, next to the university buildings. Nice, clean rooms, in a quiet location. When booking, you can request a room facing away from the street, in which case you can easily sleep with the windows open. 24-hour reception.

Just for one night in September It is a lovely old style hotel with modern conveniences and good access to the city. There is an excellent transport system for which the hotel gave us a free pass. Our highlight was a walk along the Rhine where all the locals jumped in and floated downstream and|or picniced on the bank. Suggest...

We have just returned from a five day break in this hotel. The hotel is in a super location with very easy access to the Market Square. The room we had was huge, bright, airy and extremely comfortable. We had paid for bed and breakfast and were in no way disappointed. The breakfast was far superior to many 3 star...

Convenient location and there is a good transport deal for those who require this service, otherwise walking is better. Rooms are clean, although the quality of mattress are not good enough for comfort. And the shower requires an improvement to be more pleasant. Friendly and promptly service.
