Fabulous 8.6 From 388 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Ideal hotel for Basel fasnacht
We were in Basel for the start of the fasnacht carnival. The hotel is very easy to get to from the airport, and the bus is free if you have confirmation of a hotel reservation. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the centre, or you can catch a tram. We chose this hotel because it was out of the centre so we’d be able to sleep during the carnival! We were upgraded so had a quieter room at the back of the hotel. The room was great - good bathroom and plenty of hangers for clothes. We didn’t eat at the hotel but we had a drink in the bar which was reasonably priced. We’ve stayed at the hotel before and would stay again. Public transport links are great.

Fair 4.0
4 stars?
OK place and clean but I don't understand how this qualifies as a 4 star hotel. Decor car be likened to a less colourful IBIS. We arrived to a cold (tiny) room while I was sick with a fever in the middle of December, towels were dirty and there were zero options for food at 11pm, besides some really unhealthy snacks on a shelf in the lobby. As for the service, when we asked the concierge (who was actually a security guard) about food he said he knew nothing about the area because he was new and he wasnt sure about the breakfast menu, although he knew that he should inform us that it would cost 19chf on the spot but 25chf if we chose to order in the morning. The cleaning ladies barged in twice in the morning without knocking. When we brought this and the dirty towel up to the reception in the morning she was not very apologetic but did offer us some free Oreos. Lastly, the location of the hotel is not the best. You must take 5-7 stops on the tram to get to the center and then change tram and another bus for the airport. Would not book this hotel again. There is a 4* with comparable but cheaper rates in the station square called Victoria Hotel. I had stayed here a few days prior and it is much more professional, homey  and well-located.

Lovely staff, great location
Great location, just 20 min walk to the city centre, very close to the tram and buses. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is really good, as well as the food.
