Good room, but a little expensive

We found a friendly staff, quiet room and comfy bed after a long journey. No stopper in the nice big tub, so had to settle for a shower. A short walk to town center. With breakfast not included and after added tax we thought the price ended up a little on the high end.

Clean and comfortable

Basically you get what you pay for. At this price, which is relatively cheap in Basel, Switzerland, this hotel is clean and comfy. It does not include breakfast, but you can get one good buffet in 16 CHF--most restaurants charge more than that. The free wifi is a big plus.

Great location for hospital

Hotel Rochat is in a great location. It is just up a hill from the marketplatz and away from any excess noise. It is directly across the street from a park and the University hospital. Some rooms have air conditioning. The rooms are a nice size with high ceilings, so you don't feel claustrophobic. The only problem I had were the beds. They were hard as rock, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

The food is very expensive in Switzerland. There are two markets in area that have more inexpensive choices. Migros and coop city.

Stayed due to husband being treated at hosp close

Having never before traveled out of the United States, was quite nervous about going to another country. The Hotel Rochat staff was superb! They spoke English well enough that we could communicate effectively. The hotel was located centrally in the beautiful (but expensive) city of Basel at a very decent price. Cleanliness was top notch, excellent buffet for a very reasonable price. We loved the bells from the chuch! Felt like home with the sounds of the bells.

Perfect Location

Hotel Rochat represents a perfect value for the money. The hotel is located in a nice side street of old Basel, just across from the University, and within walking distance to the old town and the river Rhine. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. We used this hotel while on a business trip to Basel and were surprised how we liked it there. We strongly recommend this hotel as an alternative to the big chain business hotels.

Great 2 star

The staff were all friendly, polite and very helpful. The room and public areas were all spotless. Location was also great - 2 minutes to the tram stop / river and 5 minutes many shops / restaurants. I spend my life staying in 4/5 star corporate hotels so had some reservations about staying a in a 2 star - but for this hotel I have no reservations in making a strong recommendation

Totally satisfied

very friendly staff, very clean rooms and awesome beds. Super cozy. The hotel is a combination of 3 buildings so we had to take go through a lot of stairs and corridors so it is not disabled friendly. Not that we needed it but I find it appropriate to write in here.

Excellent

Excellent value. Ever so courteous and so clean. 2 min to Barfuesserplatz and less than 5 minutes to Spalentor. They give you a free transportation pass that is good for all buses and trams in the greater Basel area. You can even get to the airport with this if you wish. Buy the breakfast because it is a real good deal as Switzerland is very expensive. This was an amazing deal and I would recommend it and plan to stay there again when I return in 2012.

They give you a transportation pass that is good for the greater Basel public transportation system (buses and trams)which even go all the way out to the airport.
