Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic location and friendly staff
This was a fantastic stay for my friend and I. Great location, right near several tram stops and walkable neighbourhood. Concierge/check-in staff were so friendly. Offered us the Basel Card for our stay which got us 50% off select museums and a transit pass throughout our stay. There was a pillow menu in the rooms which you could request alternate pillows.

Good stay in Swissotel except shower trouble
Hotel stay was marred by shower problems. The shower hardware is so difficult that we could not have begin shower for 15 minutes. The maintenance crew from the hotel went to our room and he thought it is difficult to understand shower mechanism. After the maintenance man left, we were still difficult to comprehend. That evening, our friends in another room, also had the same difficulty about the shower. Shower apparatus is too complicated.

Lovely property right next to the Congress center and steps from the Rhine and superb dining Unfortunately there was an awful heat wave (99F) and the room felt warm but I slept well despite that.

One night Pre River Cruise
Nice hotel within walking distance of old town. Everything seems expensive in Basel. Taxi ride to port was not far but cost 20 SF. Very nice concierge.
