Very nice atmosphere, cozy rooms and great location in the Old Town. The service was excellent and personnel very friendly. We arrived very early in the morning and our rooms were ready and available long before official check in time. Would love to stay here again.

Consum Boutique Hotel, hotel in Basel

Located in Basel, 1.3 km from Kunstmuseum Basel, Consum Boutique Hotel features a bar and views of the city.

The location is in a nice area of Basel very close to the Rhein , with nice little Cafes and restaurant. ( A bit tricky to find) Only 10 min walk away to the city centre. The room itself was not very big, but high quality interiors, very comfortable bed, the bathroom was very spacious. The weather was extremely hot for beginning of September. We struggled a bit with the nights as we only had very warm down feather duvets without AC. Couldn’t open the windows because of the outdoor noise of the bar on the ground floor and the main hotel on the opposite side of the narrow road. It was a shame that we only spotted the coffee and tea facilities outside the room on the corridor when we departed.

FAQs about hotels in Basel









Switzerland Through the Ages

At the meeting point of Switzerland, Germany and France, Basel is an eclectic mix of historic and modern, tranquil and vibrant. With Swiss cleanliness and efficiency thrown in for good measure.

Augusta Raurica on its outskirts houses a well-preserved Roman theatre, while the Old Town is a museum of medieval buildings. The Renaissance Town Hall looks down on Marktplatz’s daily market, while the red sandstone and colourful tiles of the Münster were reconstructed in the 19th century. Bringing it right up to date are the modern creations of city residents Herzog & De Meuron, designers of London’s Tate Modern.

When you’ve finished exploring this architectural heritage, there are still plenty of things to do in Basel. The city’s fine art museum is the world’s oldest art collection, and the zoo is the oldest and largest in Switzerland. Remember to bring plenty of Swiss francs for the shopping mile along Clarastrasse and Freiestrasse.

The Basel accommodation on Booking.com ranges from hotels in Grossbasel to B&Bs in Kleinbasel, home to the nightlife. If you’re flying into Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg Airport in February or March you might just catch Fasnacht: Switzerland’s biggest carnival. You’ll have to get up early to see it start though - 4am!

    Basel was much nicer than I had anticipated!

    Basel was much nicer than I had anticipated! I usually go to Luzern and Zurich while traveling by train; making them brief stops of two or three days. This time I stopped in Basel and I was delighted with this wonderful city! I can’t wait to return and plan on staying a few more days to take it all in! Wonderful for shopping and dining and easy to get to on the train. Also convenient for visiting surrounding areas, making an ideal home base for longer visits in Switzerland.

    We absolutely loved the zoo!

    We absolutely loved the zoo! Quite small but the layout was deceptive so that it seemed much larger. The animals appeared well cared for and the enclosures were spacious with attention to enriching the environment for them, while at the same time allowing the visitors to get very close to them. In a very expensive country the entrance fee was very reasonable and half price with the Basel card. The university botanical garden was also a little gem with a collection of unusual plants beautifully displayed and free to visit. Basel itself an attractive city with a good feel about it. Don’t miss the quirky fountains near the theatre in the centre of town. Everything is very expensive for a British visitor which applies to Switzerland in general.

    Perfect for a city break and good connection even to travel to other cities nationally and internationally as Basel is sandwhiched between France and Germany so, up to you where your heart will lead you for a day trip towards those countries. Peaceful and efficient. Trasport good, people chilled. Be ready to bring some money if you need to stay longer.

    Lovely city, but very expensive!

    Lovely city, but very expensive! Mind you that most kitchens close at 21h and don't accept customers well in advance, as well as lots of places are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Go for all the beauty of the city, but bring the big wallet and plan to eat out early if you don't rent a place with a kichen and cook yourself. Don't bother to stay on a Monday, and consider to leave early on a Sunday, those two days are very, very quiet in Basel!

    Good location for day trips by train, 10 minute walk to the train station. Also short walk to Barfusserplatz for tram and Christmas market. We walked all over the central/old town area. Room was spacious and well appointed. I liked that the mini bar was a fridge so I could put my own drinks in it. The beds were more comfortable than most hotel beds. Staff was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was nice upstairs in the rooftop bar, featured local products.

    It was a second time I used the hotel with my family. It is spacious (triple room) and I love the fact that the room does not have TV set. We can have quiet time and playing cards etc. The atmosphere of the hotel and its staff are so welcoming. And, the price does not sound like "swiss price" although the hotel locates just within 5 minutes from main Basel HB. I will use this hotel again if we go to Switzerland again!

    The idea of a capsule is excellent! For someone who suffers from sleeping problems and with limited budget like me, it is a perfect option between hostel and hotel. I like my capsule. It was very quiet and clean. The price is unbeatable in Switzerland. The location is very good, 5 mins walk from Basel SBB. It is not possible for an early check-in but they offer a luggage room. The staffs are nice.

The wifi was good and stable, and worth mentioning was, because the location of Basel is almost at the border of France and Switzerland, so I was contantly experiencing the problem with my cellphone internet, but luckily the hotel wifi solved my problem.

    Considering the type of accomodation, everything works perfectly. The place has all you need, including a communal kitchen and coworking facilities. A nice option to stay overnight and close to the train station (hauptbanhof). Nice shower and excellent toilette products. Remember that Switzerland is an overrated country and the capsule hotel is an option to save some swiss francs.
