Great hotel in the center, very close to the market place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good, tasty food - well served. Rooms are spacious, very clean, well equipped. Beautiful, large blanket, comfortable beds. City center can be reached on foot. But you get a card, in order during the stay the public transport free of charge to use. Remarkable museums - we liked especially the museum tinguely and the toy museum - the fondation beyerler for us was rather disappointing. Next door is a nice theatre. read hotel review

The hotel Basel i know now for many years and am always again with great pleasure to visit. The friendly and helpful staff, the location, the excellent food are just a few notable points. The rooms are very comfortably and friendly furnished and offer perfect relaxation after a busy day If a bit work is still pending, no problem. The free wireless internet works well. For business or leisure, a highly recommendable destination. read hotel review
