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 magical, I really enjoyed visiting it. The old town is so so nice. It's also very well connected to other places like Reigoldswil for the waterfall or to Augusta Raurica which I recommend.

    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!

    Very nice city, everything is very tidy.

    Very nice city, everything is very tidy. The public transportation is very good. A lot of tramways and every several minutes coming the next one. We used tramway 8 to go to Germany and tramwat 3 to go to France. I recomend to visist the Stadtcasino and also to take the train and to go to Augusta Raurica about 20 km from Basel. It was a nice site with roman remains and also a nice rural walking outside the city. There are trains every 30 minutes.

    Very vibrant as far as the museums are concerned. City for art lovers. Also very easy to move within the city with any kind of public transportation. Transportation was free, and the museums are for half the regular price with the card given by the hotel.

    Basel is a very touristy and romantic city.

    Basel is a very touristy and romantic city. It is very easy to explore and walk around. Quite expensive, I would recommend to visit museums on the first Sunday of every month(free) and also find an accommodation which provides Basel card in case you would like to tour the city by bus or tram.

    A beautiful city. I arrived Saturday evening.

    A beautiful city. I arrived Saturday evening. The train station was a little busy and the shops were too but it was to be expected. I explored the city on Sunday, it was very quiet as the locals don't tend to work on Sundays. I managed to see every attraction and walk around the whole city and down to St Jacobs in around 5 hours. It is beautiful, clean, and everyone was friendly. If you learn a little German, they really appreciate it! Just remember to respect the environment and enjoy your time there and it is fine. The railway services there are unbelievable too. Direct trains to Zurich within an hour without delays would be unheard of in the UK. Very impressed!

    Everything. The room is very new, very clean , with all facilities you need. It tells about how the team care for the wellbeing of guests. The staff is very helpful, with quick response. So even though I never get to meet them in person, I feel they are available and will help solve any problem. This feeling of security is very important when you travel to a foreign country. The contact less check-in worked very well. This is the best accommodation in my one month travel in Switzerland.

Having stayed here a number of years ago we were aware of how convenient the location is for sightseeing and proximity to numerous good restaurants. Considering how expensive Switzerland has become, the hotel offers excellent value for money.

    Excellent location for visitors to the fair, plus great transport links to the city centre and you can be in the old town in a few minutes. I also received a card from the hotel entitling me to free travel on public transport and discounts on museum tickets throughout my stay. Breakfast plentiful, very good, lots of options both sweet and salty. Rooms ok, the equipment's glory years are long behind it, but it is clean.
