    Great staff, great location

    Hotel is well situated and short walk to sites. Highly recommended to stay here for the clean and sleek rooms and especially for the staff. Daniela in particular was extremely helpful in booking us dinner and went well above and beyond to ensure our stay was amazing. Will definitely return to stay here on our next visit.

    A wonderful hotel. Fantastic service and lovely modern rooms. Also, a superb location. The little extras, such as the kids cosmetics, were a big hit! I wish we had stayed longer and I would certainly return. Thank you to everyone at Hotel Basel.

    The property was located close to the Christmas Markets and the valet service was convenient. Our room was clean, the staff was very nice and helpful and the restaurant was a little pricey for lunchtime but worth it. We would stay there again.
