Service with Customer Intimacy
It was a very good experience for us. Though we only stayed there for one night, the two girls at the reception were very helpful and friendly. We arrived earlier than the official check-in time. Instead of asking us to pay for early check-in, they asked us to wait a bit while they clean up a better room for us. They also help checking the train service for us and were helpful on other things.

Spacious room.
Convenient location just off the centre of Basel. Very comfortable and spacious room. The fridge in the room was very handy as I had an eye infection during my stay and needed if fot the eye drops.

Perfect hotel
I stayed at Hotel du Commerce for five nights while attending a conference. The location is perfect for the conference centre, the river, and the trams. My room was spacious and spotless, and had a mini fridge which was useful for this long stay. The beds were extremely comfortable and the air con was appreciated due to the extremely hot weather. Breakfast was fresh and varied (especially the fruit!) I emailed at around 6am requesting an early check in that morning, and the staff managed it, even though they were very busy. My last night’s stay was a separate booking and the hotel arranged for me to stay in the same room without me even asking. I was really grateful for this great service. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Lovely little hotel for business trips
Helpful staff, lovely breakfast, good location, does the job nicely Nice place to stay with good access to all of Basel Just don't forget to bring a Swiss plug adapter if travelling from outside Switzerland

Fair 4.0
Very basic and nothing like the photos
Very basic apart from the bathroom that has recently been renovated and despite poor water pressure it is a small saving grace. The rest of the hotel is as basic as it comes, an EasyHotel is a few doors up and it is probably more luxurious! The room looks nothing like the one advertised - its more like a cross between a prison dorm and a youth hostel. Tiny TV that only has a few channels working. Basic bed - although the mattress is comfy... shame that they follow the standard Swiss thing of giving you just one pillow that collapses to a sheet of paper once you put your head on it! Hotel amenities are non existent - the bar is never open and staff are really indifferent to you being in the hotel. Coffee glass also hasn't been changed since I arrived 4 days ago and no free water bottles. Furthermore, curtains are not black out curtains - not so bad in winter but I would hate the 5 am wake up in the summer here. Oh and the heating doesn't work. WiFi was incredibly poor. It is a shame as I expected basic but paid a little more for a better room - unfortunately in Switzerland like everywhere - you get what you pay for and here it is expensive. So if you want just a place to crash and an average shower it is probably ok - just not for me.
