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 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!

    It was a safe nice and environment for my wife and her friend. This was their first time in Basel and they couldn't believe the location. It was near everything and they loved being in the middle of the Christmas market . The rooms where extremely quiet considering the location and they were clean. She mentioned the receptionist who also spoke Spanish was a very friendly and helpful person. As they continue to travel through Switzerland they decided to come back one more time as it was a very positive experience.

    Wonderful old hotel in old town Basel, convenient walking distance to many sites. Had a great bar/cafe and two wonderful restaurants. Its right on one of the tram lines, so just walk out your door and you are connected to the clean and efficient swiss public mass transit system. The hotel is a great place to hang out for a day or two as well, and depending on your language skills, there's entertainment that occurs at the hotel.

    The location is on the bus route between the train stations so getting around was simple. Our room was exactly as described, it was very comfortable, clean, and quiet, even though it was street-facing. Switzerland is expensive, so having a hearty breakfast really set us up for the day. Breakfast was self-service, there was a good range of hot and cold items, and everything was replenished regularly.
