Except for one thing: room temperature was too high, and too much street noice to sleep with open window - but besides everything was perfect: location, staff, room, breakfast, bathroom, wifi, bathroom... we made a good choice and will come back!

I'm an international business traveler staying often in high class accommodations. The Hotel Engel is for me in an ideal location visiting some of my customers in the Basel region. By checking-in I was served by the Front Desk Manager (her name was Calonder if I remember right) and I had a few questions and things to clarify beside the usual check-in formality. This friendly and good English speaking front desk manager was helping me with my questions in an unusual and exceptional way that I seldom experienced before. I would like to mention this here, as this experience made me really satisfied. The Hotel owners shall note this that they have an exceptional good performing front desk manager with Mrs.Calonder and I do hope they honor her accordingly. The hotel industry is a very busy and tight business - so my experience shows me what a staff can change and reach by personal performance. To the room and restaurant: OK, clean and fulfilling the standards of a 4 star hotel.

Hotel is location is very convenient to local shops, restaurants. The staff are helpful and friendly. Very good breakfast provided with hotel room. Good cheese and coffee. The rooms are acceptable, but there really is no air conditioning so you must open the windows in summer. The rooms could be cleaner than they were provided.

Stayed at the hotel for a business trip. The rooms offer a good bed and bathroom and free Wifi. Hotel Engel serves a varied breakfast offering something for everyone. The hotel also has a fitness room where you can work out in an 'open air' environment.

There was a slight complication when we first arrived, which, however was immediately sorted out. The staff was extremely proactive and helpful, the room was spacious and clean and the hotel-location is highly convenient near to the pedestrian town center. We'll surely schedule another trip to the area and to the same hotel.

Very friendly staff although some had some difficulties with English. The Hotel is close to the city centre but still you could sleep very well without disturbancies. All rooms I have stayed in have been very fresh with wooden flooring and clean bathrooms. Beware of the "engel" statues that turns up here and there.

My stay in general was good, the location of the hotel was good, and so was the front desk staff - exceptional. However, some staff did not live up to the great standards set by the reception staff, and when given this feedback, the response from the management was so crude, rude and unprofessional, that I decided to stay in Basel instead. a few miles more to travel, but a more professional approach is required to lift this hotel from mediocre, to average

I typically stay at the Hotel Engel when visiting this area for business. The hotel is an easy walk from the Liestal train station and is at the center of town. I find their rates very reasonable. The rooms are clean, functional and quite. I particularly like their buffet breakfast which is included in the price. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The staff generally speaks quite good English, which is quite helpful to me.

Used for business travel mainly, the hotel has a great central Liestal location, short walk form train station and form all restaurants in city. Decent breakfast at affordable rate. Convenient that it is above a Migros Store and has easy underground parking that is in expensive. Swiss Mobility tickets (free bus pass) available to guests on request.

All staff were very friendly. The room was very large and well equipped with plenty of space to hang clothes. The kettle is always a welcome bonus. The food in the restaurant on Sunday evening was excellent. Very well prepared and presented. In fact, we had eaten in Michelin-starred restaurants twice in the previous week (it was our birthdays!) and the food of your chef was of an equivalent standard. Breakfast had a wide range and a particularly friendly waitress. The only point we would have changed was that the pillows were much too large to be comfortable. We read the next day that alternative pillows are available but that information was obtained too late. We will know next time!
