We just spent 1 night at the Hotel Spalentor. Our stay there was wonderful. It is in a perfect location, the room was clean, comfortable and the staff was wonderful. They did everything to make our stay most enjoyable. When we come back to the area, we won't hesitate to stay there again! Hotel Spalentor deserves it's high rating!

Strategically located in the old town, most of the interesting places are at walking distance; very silent, clean and comfortable room, friendly staff; quality food for breakfast; very good wifi; excellent for any type of visit.

We stayed just one night prior to boarding a river cruise. The accommodations are more than adequate, The staff were very attentive and helpful. The outdoor seating area is lovely. The location is superb, very close to the old city center,

The young women staffers at this hotel were extremely kind and professional. They attended promptly to any request and offered many good tips about enjoying the city. The hotel room was very clean and crisp. Simple modern decor with a calming atmosphere. The wifi was very fast which I have found is not always the case in hotels and the tv system offered a clear guide to channels making it easy to use. A modern coffee device and refrigerator were also available. The location is ideal, very easy to get to the center of town on foot or by the excellent transit system and not far from the airport and river cruise ships. Guests are given a transit card to use during their stay which eliminates the need for correct change which can make mass transit a problem when traveling. The breakfast buffet was very nice with scrambled eggs and bacon, fresh fruit, assorted cereals, yogurts and bakery products. A choice of juices, teas and excellent coffee. There is a pleasant terrace where you can enjoy a takeaway meal or go across the street and eat in the botanical garden which is part of the University.

This is a find in a lovely, but very expensive city. the rooms are very modern and clean. The staff is very friendly and can't do enough for you. The location is perfect, on two major tram lines. We will stay here again.

amazing! They even anticipate the follow-on issues and provide immediate, exciting solutions. Probably the most attentive hotel staff ever! Kudos!!!!! Breakfast was wholesome, not fussy. we had a room with a balcony overlooking the Spalentor Gate.

We were 6 family members and took 3 rooms at the first floor. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and helped with any need or ask. Rooms are big with comfortable king size bed and large enough shower/bath. Only issue was the small parking space and though they have a nearby garage , it cost 15CHF per day. Breakfast was ok as well, and they offered also gluten free bread which was great! Definitely great service and great location at the entrance to Basel old city. Also a great spot for star travels to Germany and France. Thanks much to the great staff of Hotel Spalentor.

Lovely, modern hotel in good location. The charming young ladies at the desk were so very helpful and knowledgeable in showing us what we should see and how to get there. The outside garden area was perfect for a relaxing drink after sightseeing.

Stayed here just one night. It was very clean, modern and close to the tram. A tram pass was even included. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend this place. There is a nice sitting area outside where you can enjoy the beverage of your choice.

Firstly we were greeted by absolutely charming staff at Reception. Our room was spacious and well furnished. We received excellent advice from the hotel as to a place to dine. The hotel is well located just outside the city gate and several restaurants were within a couple of minutes walk. A nice breakfast and we were on our way again. However, our next visit to Basel will be for longer and at the same hotel.. The staff were so pleasant, they made me happy to be there.
