Hotel Basilea Zürich

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Let me first say that this hotel is in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Wifi is free, it was $150 USD for me on short notice, and an ideally short walk from all the sights people come to see (as well as the train station.) For a busy traveller, this makes it five starts for value. The family traveller, or someone a bit more posh than me, however, is going to have a heck of a shock walking into a room that looks and feels like the bulkhead of a boat. This is a step up from a hostel-- it has washable rubber flooring, a slim bunk style bed, and a desk to work at. There are zero frills here and if you're looking for a chocolate on your pillow you are going to be let down. For a light-traveling, rugged backpacker, however, this place was just fine and the price was right.
