The service was less than good - felt as if we were an inconvenience to the two people who served us at check in. Shame.

Exceptional 10.0
Nice Quality Hotel, good service.
Long weekend away. City break. Lovely hotel, good area, local bars/food or 10 mins walk into Basel. Free transport tickets provided so very easy to jump on and off Trams and buses to get around. Basel is expensive compared to UK. Be prepared to pay 80chf minimum for a meal for 2, nice meal will be 150chf for 2. Recommend Pizza Blitz just up from hotel for good priced quality Italian in nice setting. Best value is Papa Joes in Basel. Great atmosphere price ok for area and good cocktails! Wifi in hotel very good and reliable.

Good stay in Swissotel except shower trouble
Hotel stay was marred by shower problems. The shower hardware is so difficult that we could not have begin shower for 15 minutes. The maintenance crew from the hotel went to our room and he thought it is difficult to understand shower mechanism. After the maintenance man left, we were still difficult to comprehend. That evening, our friends in another room, also had the same difficulty about the shower. Shower apparatus is too complicated.
