Excellent location and good value for money

The hotel is located right opposite to German train station ' Badischer Bahnoff'. If you are on a business trip, it's a good hotel. Public transport is just across the road that can take you to the city center in a few minutes. Nothing to do much in the hotel, but the hotel give you a mobility card which can be used to take any public transport in basel. Breakfast and dinner was good. The Wi-fi was fast and the room was clean. It got slightly noisy at night, as the hotel is next to the road but apart from ... that I had a comfortable stay. read hotel review

The Hotel Royal is a relatively small hotel, the directly at the badischer bahnhof train station in Basel is. In the building is the 4. floor hotel, the lower floors will be used. The rooms have a good size and are decorated up to date. This is the first hotel, in which i have no contact with the staff had, because the check in with simultaneous payment and purchase of the key is to be made upon arrival the hotel at an automat (which i didn't negative rate). Free wi-fi is also available. read hotel review

    The rooms are comfortable, clean and well equipped with flat screen tv, telephone, minibar with free water and Cola, nespresso machine, kettle, iron and ironing board, and safe. Free, if also not completely undisturbed ongoing wi-fi available. The rooms have a well-being feeling character, even if a bit circular is. Also the bathroom is very well maintained.

    I can only the cleaning of the rooms judge, since the front desk only by telephone attainable is. There the building unfortunately also inside very circular is, could be a small problem. I heard every word of my zimmernachbars, the obviously through its computer a conversation with another person run. I would help from the staff needs, to make it quieter, it would be simply not have been possible. The cleaning of the rooms done thoroughly. It's all clean and neat. The service alone would have 6 suns. A sun i give for not current hotel info. Since the introduction of automatic check-in obviously only recently took place, the information has not yet been updated.

    As mentioned, is the building directly at the badischer bahnhof train station. Thus one hears 5a 24 hours clear sounds of the tram, as this before the house a 90 degrees turn drives. As this noise even with the windows closed strongly heard, i recommend guests, as i extremely are sensitive, a higher category as the standard rooms to book, since the szandardzimmer all to the street are. The location of course clear benefits. Train, bus and tram are right on your doorstep. The garage baden train station is right around the corner. The messe Basel is within a few minutes walking on foot distance.

Reception process at Hotel Royale, Basel, CH
  • Recommended hotel

  • January 2013
The Hotel Royale now has a machine to check in and not longer a reception. The check in booth is outside in the cold and you have to be very smart to have ready your hotel booking, your passport number, your Master card and face the cold wind while all this is being accepted by the machine. Add to that the possiblitity of being robbed as you have everything precious in your hands whilst trying to manage the steps of what the computer asks you. No human being at the reception is a loss for this hotel. And not practical. read hotel review

    The rooms are the best thing about the Royal. The are extremely spacious by any hotel standards and some of them are outright huge. Furnished in a Scandinavian style, they feature wood floors and modern bathroom fittings. The free soft drinks in the fridge are a nice touch in a world where you usually get charged for just looking at the mini bar.

    The hotel is located next to the German railway station, which is convenient to just about anywhere in Basel with it's extensive tram and bus links. Don't worry that the hotel is out of the city center. To stay there, you pay a big premium when it's only an easy 10 minute bus/tram ride away. There aren't a lot of restaurants near the hotel, so be prepared to venture up to Mezzeplatz where there are plenty of options.

The Service is extraordinarily good and friendly. The hotel has only a few rooms and thus the atmosphere is nice. WLAN access is for free. An espresso machine is available in the room, soft driks are for free. The airconditioning is not very loud. That is advantageous as the train station is facing the hotel and opening the windows at night is not a good option. read hotel review

    The hotel is opposite the german train station and is very well connected via public transport. A travel pass for public transport is provided, so it is very easy to hop on the tram and go to the city centre (although I have found myself walking the distance which took me about 25 minutes). The congress centre is two stops away (or ten minutes walk).

Almost perfect with only a handful of rooms, this meant that we were lavished with attention from the staff. Facilities were what you would expect of a four star hotel, but the television was far too small. One room was bigger than the others (on the corner nearest to the train station) so I recommend asking for that one. read hotel review
