Motel One Basel, hotel in Basel

Motel One Basel is located in Basel, 328 feet from the Architectural Museum. Guests can enjoy the on-site bar and benefit from free WiFi access.

A great location in the centre of Basel in walking distance to almost all of the must do sites. We stayed at Motel One twice on our holiday and much preferred the first room which was on the top floor with views. On both occasions we found the staff extremely friendly and happy to help with any problems. The rooms were spotless and comfortable.

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 the outskirts, has a well-preserved Roman theater, 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 colorful 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 accommodations on Booking.com range 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 catch the 4 am start, though!

    Basel is a fabulous city.

    Basel is a fabulous city. The art and architecture available and variety of museums is amazing. As is the Basel card you receive with your booking that let's you ride transport free and gives 50% off many attractions. The many little bars along the river were lovely and the flow powered ferries were a lot of fun. Do be aware VAT is not included in prices there and that it being outside the EU phone roaming may be more.

    I did not expect too much, I was very pleasantly surprised. It has all the charm of France and the calm of a small German town. The best surprise is the amount of art attractions (wall art, graffiti, museum, etc.)

    Nice city and very walkable.

    Nice city and very walkable. Two days is about right unless you're using it as a base for wider travel. Best avoid a stay across a Monday because virtually everything (museums and restaurants) seems to be shut. Best place we visited was the Paper Mill - in effect a museum of the history of paper, writing, printing and bookbinding. The Jewish museum is also fascinating.

    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.
