Well done Hotel Metropol!
Incredibly accomodating. Super quiet room even though overlooking main Street. 5 minutes from SBB train station and major tram stops. Prepared us a box lunch one day when catching train to different city for the day. AND made us breakfast and served in the lobby when we had taxi ride to airport at 4 Am day we departed. Clearly above and beyond customer service.

Great place to stay in Basel
Had an excelent stay at the Metropol hotel in Basel. Location, staff, breakfast, all was first class, exceeding all expectations. That, combined with the charming atmosfere of the holiday season in Basel and nearby towns made a great breakaway for us.

Exceptional 10.0
VERY satisfied with the hotel stay. The room was comfortable, clean, with useful, sufficient amenities. Its location was very convenient to eat, drink, shop, or visit fun places in town. The staff was genuinely friendly. It made my day when a reception staff remembered my name after two days of check in and greeted with a smile.

The metropol delivered
The hotel was a block from train station and getting train from airport to SBB train station was easy and cheap. Staff was very helpful and the Basel card made sightseeing inviting and easy. Breakfast was included and it was fine. Basel was interesting and easy to get around. We wanted modern and convenient and the metropol delivered.
