  • Good location for catching trains and tram just in front of. Great hotel in Basel, reasonable price and the service at the reception desk is fairly friendly and efficient. The room is comfortable, comfortable restaurant, puts out a decent breakfast buffet.

    Back on to the bis building, staff does not seem to care too much about the visitor.

  • Very quiet location and very convenient for the train station. I loved Hotel Victoria and maybe the rooms in the main building will be better. Staff is very nice, bathroom is fine and buffet breakfast is more than adequate and the food is excellent.

    Noisy from tram, not worth the money and expensive restaurant.

  • Location near train station and underground parking was a definite plus. Hotel staff were helpful, reception was bright and bed linens were plush and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent and cost was just below 4 Swiss francs each.

    Front desk could provide more information on trams, the room is a little bit dusty and nice bar seems to be fairly busy. Gym is tiny.
