I liked the friendly staff at the reception, always available to help.

Soooo close to everything and staff was engaging. Lived the restaurant for dinner

Very clean, comfortable and modern rooms. Close to everything in old town Basel

The location was excellent for visiting the old section of town, which is wonderful to visit. The showers were extremely slippery, the hotel pamphlet said you could request this mat to put down. Why they didn't just put this in each bathroom is a mystery. My husband did fall down after I warned him how slippery it was, as I slipped in the shower but didn't fall. It was a beautiful large shower.

Booked this hotel, to be in the center of Basel, close to sites, transportation, shopping and food/bars. This hotel was very conveniently located. Rooms were well appointed, comfortable, and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for dining, transportation, and sites. I had booked 3 rooms, as 6 of us were traveling together, but not arriving together. The hotel made some changes to my booking for a small fee, managed to get everyone checked in as they arrived, gave us free tram tickets, and were very helpful with any request.

The room we had was noisy and was not air conditioned and the weather was quite warm. The overall experience was less than ecpected.

Centrally located, comfortable but with poor air circulation and noisy with open window.

The hotel was very comfortable and close to all the attractions in town. A very nice extra was the a "transit pass" provided for each guest. Basil is a very charming city, people are friendly, lots restaurants, sidewalk cafes and shops.the hotel restaurant and bar were very nice. We didn't have a chance to sample the breakfast but appeared quite inviting.

The hotel is located in the old town with easy access to many restaurants and shops. The room was spotless and comfortable. The bathroom was modern and functional. The hotel included a free drink and ticket for public transportation. This is a great value in an otherwise expensive city.

Hotel Basel is nicely located and we had the superior double room. The room was large and well equipped. The staff were helpful and stored our luggage as we were there early. The air conditioning system did fine in the afternoon but when we returned from dinner it was warm and the controls had changed from green to red. Our friends in another room inquired about this and were provided a fan. It was a pleasant accommodation
