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!

    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.

    Very sketchy, unsafe area - more unsafe than any areas I've seen in Switzerland. Even to enter the building at night, one is scared, and when you do not have the code at hand to enter the building, even more. The info on how to enter the building and room is super unclear. The display inside also got stuck, so it was really a hassle. People on the street shouting all night. Strange idea to do a self check-in hotel in such an unsafe place- you need staff then.

    We spent two nights in this hotel during our trip to Switzerland, one at the beginning of our trip when we arrived in Basel, and another one before we left the country. When we came back for our second night of stay, Tamara at the reception and Leonardo at the buffet remembered us and knew us by name. The kindness and professionalism of the staff makes you feel like you are in a five star hotel.

    the room was clean and cozy, I like the presentation of my room and how the electronical curtain was operated. Breakfast was amazingly tasted. 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.

It’s on a tram line so was easy access from the station but too far to walk with luggage. The area was fine and there were supermarkets a few blocks away. Value for money in expensive Switzerland!!
