Good, basic work stay in Basel
A clean, quiet place, good for a business stay. Slightly further from things than similarly priced places. Very few staff and reception closed outside work hours but all we’re very friendly. Automated check-in after hours

We loved the Royal!
We stayed at the Royal while waiting to board our cruise. So we stayed only one night. But the manager greeted us warmly, offered advice, made some restaurant recommendation and so forth before we even checked in. Then he followed up on a bogey taxi driver who overcharged us. The service was stellar. We loved the room. Modern, clean, elegant and efficient.

Kevin, us7 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Classy, modern, convenient to the train station
As said by others, the rooms are the fourth floor of a large building. Rooms are modern and sleek. The bed was firm but we slept well and the pillows were nice. Having a separate sitting area with sofa was nice, just wish we had been able to stay longer. There were more power points than any place I have ever seen, only thing missing was any USB ports. The location has pros and cons. Close to the station and trams, and just off the expressway, but no real neighborhood places to eat. And train and tram noise was constant. Also you have to park at the train station lot (building) which can be confusing to get to. Definitely better to park first and walk rather than go to the hotel then try to find your way back. Staff were very nice and the continental breakfast was good, though lacking in fruit. Check when you arrive to see if your room rate includes it or not, especially when booking through a third party site, it is not always clear. If it is, it is a nice bonus.
