Great service at welcome desk and the breakfast . We felt totally pleased by Nicola hospitality. We haven’t planed to take a breakfast due to me being gluten free and my husband vegetarian but it was so good and lots of options so we went for it. Perfect experience. Location just 6 minutes, one bus stop from main train station but you can walk.

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 is a beautiful city, the hotels will give every visitor a free ticket for transport, which is great, although it is best to walk around. There are interesting museums in the city - the music museum, where you can learn a lot about musical instruments and listen to them, the toy museum, the tinguely museum, etc.

    A very friendly city, with an amazing tram system All hotel guests get a free Baselcard, which allows free travel on public transport in the city. There is plenty to see in the city to keep a visitor occupied. If you have seen all the sites in Basel and have a day free, Colmar, a small but beautiful city in Alsace, France, is a 50 minute train ride away.

    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.

    Beautiful hotel on a quiet back street convenient to the historic center of Basel and all tram lines. Our room was in the annex across the street (called the “Set”) where we had a large, well designed minimalist room with a separate toilet room and “kitchenette” with a sink and mini fridge (no cooking facilities). The Set annex room was nice since we had a view of the historic Teufelhof hotel across the street. Seems very well run - everything was in order. Appreciated the rather late checkout at noon.
