Hotel Rochat Basel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent location in the center of everything. Simple clan rooms with a very friendly staff. EXCELLENT breakfast in a spacious setting. Steps away from the best restaurants, bars and shopping in Basel.

I had a quick to Basel, and I wanted to be near the action. The Hotel Rochat is amazingly well located. It is also impeccably clean. My check in was a highlight, as I was greeted with true Sicilian warmth! I was shown all about the amenities of the hotel, and how to navigate the city effortlessly. My room (14) was beautiful and meticulous. There bed was perfect, and the view our to the garden. At 7pm, beautiful bells rang from St. Peter's Kirche next door. I highly recommend the Hotel Rochat, and can't wait for my next visit here!

Check in was quick and efficient. We were directed to our rooms which was a distance from the reception. As it is an old building, it was a a maze of corridors, steps ans 2 different elevators. The room was large, comfortable and the bathroom a good size. The down side there is no tea/coffee making facility which was needed badly. A safety issue in the room were the exposed wooden roof beams (nice to look at) that one could walk into in the dark. Neither was there a bar downstairs that one could use to unwind. The breakfast was extra but well presented and reasonable.

I have stayed in a few places in Basel - this was up there with the best. A great hotel in the middle of the city. The room was spacious and modern, with the staff helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.

The hotel has friendly staff clean rooms and a very big shower head. The price is affordable. Good location. Take Tram 11 from Basel HB and get of at university hospital station. Very good. I recommend the hotel for a Basel vacation.

I chose this hotel because I had never stayed in Switzerland before so didn't want to stay in a chain hotel. When I arrived I wasn't disappointed, it felt very Calvinist and upon my arrival I learnt that the original use of the building was an asylum for alcoholics. As a result they only have zero alcohol beer in the mini-bar. In terms of my stay it was really nice to have a genuine single room and breakfast was brilliant. It is well located and the staff will give you a free pass for public transport as well.

We were staying for one night at the hotel, the reception staff was very friendly and helpful! The cleaning staff was very nice when we walked past and the room was spotless! It still smelled a bit „new“ but this is not a bad thing. Bathroom had a brilliant shower and was big enough for a short stay! Breakfast buffet offered everything you would like to have. Check out is 12pm which made it possible for us to go out again before checking out, very handy! They gave us tickets for the public transport in town and a town wifi password as well as free wifi in the hotel.

Six of us just stayed here for a couple of nights and we all loved it. Spotlessly clean, welcoming staff, great location and reasonably priced, what more do you need for a weekend break? We had breakfast in the hotel too which we all thought was good value. There was no bar at the hotel but we went down the road to a little place and had a few drinks there instead.A great weekend, thank you Hotel Rochat!

Great welcome for our party of 5 friends me they remembered my friend's birthday which we celebrating. Rooms were all fine ('most had been refurbished so modern bathrooms). Lots of UK freeview channels on the TV in the room so available if you want some downtime from exploring the town! We picked the hotel because of the location and easy walking distance to the Christmas markets and it was prefect ! Free transport on trams in the Basel city area was a nice bonus ! Option for a quick breakfast (5 €) was a great idea. Will definitely stay there again for another weekend break!

We stayed 6 nights before boarding our Viking riverboat cruise. We would definitely stay here again. The room was modern, comfortable and immaculate. The buffet breakfast was extra but worth every 16 Swiss frank that it cost. Restaurant are very expensive in Switzerland and by comparison this was a bargain. Thank you Priska, Paola, Caroline and Sandra for your help and kindness.
