          Location very convenient for getting around Basel, helped by Mobility Ticket for public transport provided by hotel. Have also stayed there on business trips. Staff very helpful. Excellent breakfast.

        • Older travelers

          Good location. Efficient staff. Good breakfast. Smoking room in bar. Free soft drinks.

          Only 3 pillows for 2 adults. They could have included scrambled eggs as part of the breakfast instead of charging an extra 4 francs. Bit mean that one.

        • Single
          9.4

          Friendly, helpful staff Proximity to railway station and public transport Very good breakfast Clean and comfortable

          I thought the decor in the room was a little bit 'spartan' - I would've liked to have had a rug or floor mat in the bedroom to soften the wooden floor a bit! I would've preferred more variety in the room service menu, ie: there were no salads, burgers etc and the choices were quite pricy ....

        • Single
          8.2

          Ik heb er maar 5 uur verbleven maar vond het super: propere en ruime kamer, internet, vriendelijk personeel. Het ligt schuin tegenover het station.

        • Single

          The friendly and helpful staff were excellent and the hotel is immaculate.

          Good value for money in very expensive switzerland. Nice extras: tram ticket for traveling within city limits, excess to the minibar/fridge, where you can get as many soft drinks as you like. Close to main railway station basel sbb, some budget food options and supermarket. Excellently trained staff at reception.

          Outside noise from the tram lines, which is inevitable when you are staying that close to main tram stops and main railway station. Bed was rather poor and uncomfortable. Scrambled eggs, fried eggs or omelett not included in the breakfast menu (can be ordered at extra cost).

          The free "mini-bar" is awesome and very cute of staff to mention that they don't offer any alcohol.

        • Single
          9.6

          Got an upgrade on arrival with no extra cost and without asking. Spacious and well designed rooms. Mostly excellent and courteous service from the staff, breakfast spread is varied and interesting, quality of food is excellent and plenteous, location is perfect (close to the main station), clean rooms... need I go on? This is the best 3 star hotel I have ever stayed in and I will DEFINITELY be staying there again.

          Nothing.

        • Older travelers

          for a visit to Basel it is the most central the rail station square from where the city tram network operates The hotel's mobility card allows guests free access to this network. They have 5 parking bays in front, free of charge first come first served - a relief for the lucky few who have penetrated the city's traffic to find the place.

        • Single
          8.8

          The location is superb - just a few steps from the sbb train station, the trams are right in front, the old town is a short leisurely walk. The staff are very efficient. The room is clean and spacious. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels, and only Hotel Schweizerhof offers free drinks to all its guests - bottled water, cola, iced tea and fruit juices are available absolutely free anytime of day or night (even the Club lounges of InterContinental don't operate 24/7, and you have to pay extra for access).

          I had hoped to have a sunny side-up for breakfast at no extra cost.

        • Couple

          - great location in short walking-distance from SBB railway station - cozy and modern rooms - friendly staff - free drinks - tourists get free public transport card - fair price

          - expensive breakfast buffet

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We appreciated the location right next to the rail station. We were able to drop off our luggage withing minutes of arrival by train and see the city. The breakfast buffet was delicious.

        • Single
          9.2

          Reception staff very helpful and friendly and they gave me upgrades and also allowed me to move room to one at front with balcony. Beds extremely comfortable and the the mini bar in hall excellent to help yourself to more water, fruit juice coke and ice all free of charge

          The only thing that let this hotel down was bar and it's staff. All the times I have been there the ar Taff been pretty awful. It's a shame as little ar is very cosy but not a relaxing place to have drink. Also wine not very pleasant.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We only stayed one night as a break in our trip from Italy to Gernany and had chosen the hotel due to its proximity to the train station. In retrospect it turned out to be the best hotel on our trip in terms of size, services etc.

        • Single
          10.0

          The location perfect close to train station and center of town. Staff were most accomodating. Free breakfast was excellent. As this was a last minute business trip which I booked at an online travel site I was leary but more than pleasantly surprised. Overall exceeded my expectations!
