Hotel Schweizerhof Basel reviews

9.1 Wonderful!

Stayed here 1 night. Needed a hotel close to the train station (though always a bit skeptical about those). Was pleasantly surprised. Perfectly situated and well-appointed. Lovely bathroom with spacious shower. Skipped the CHF25 breakfast option so cannot comment on the value for money aspect. Well-insulated windows meant no disturbance from tram stop immediately below. Very pleasant front-desk staff. Was particularly impressed that during check in, hearing my poor attempt at German, the front-desk clerk even asked if I would prefer to continue in English or German... service.

Comfortable hotel with very friendly staff. Price-quality-relationship was unbeatable. Breakfast was good. Our room was located on the front side that faces the station, which is right in front of the hotel. Of course we heard the trains coming in and leaving the station, still, the rooms are very well isolated so that we could sleep without problems. Guests mainly were aged 40-60

It is advisable to pay in Swiss currency: the currency exchange is a disaster! You will lose 15%!

Fine hotel at an excellent price in a great location. Staff not very friendly nor well informed. Receptionist on arrival said breakfast was included in my reservation; when I said I didnt't think so, she was offended and insisted that she was right. Lo and behold, the next day I was charged 20 euros for breakfast...

despite close location to tram station, room is very quiet, well isolated from noise. The pass for public transportation is quite useful since the trams are in front of the hotel. the area is one of the few where tourists can find something to eat in Basel.

A very nice establishment. Front desk staff quite helpful & friendly. Included mobility card provided free local public transportation within the city & to the airport. Next door to train and tram stations which caused a small noise problem at night but the convenience was well worth it. Definitely would stay again.
