Well located, comfortable hotel
94 Well located, comfortable hotel Review of Hotel Spalentor Basel Reviewed 1 week ago Stayed at the Hotel Spalentor for one night prior to boarding a river cruise. The hotel is located in an extremely convenient location, with a stop on the efficient public transit system just across the street. The hotel also provides a Basel card which allows guests to ride the transit for free and receive discounted admissions to certain attractions. The lovely botanical gardens are also just next door and worth strolling through. The room itself was very spacious and comfortable and I slept great. The hotel is located off a major road and we found that it was a road much travelled by emergency vehicles but the windows (when closed) provide for good soundproofing. Be careful entering and exiting from the tub though as it is very deep; exercise caution to avoid injury. The trinkets from the hotel - the rubber ducky and a sampling of Swiss treats - were a lovely touch. Oddly though I didn’t find a clock in the room! The reception staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. And the free fruit and water, and bikes available to borrow, were also welcome. I would definitely recommend staying at the Hotel Spalentor.

Steps away from the old city. Clean, comfortable and very attentive staff. Would most definitely recommend. The included breakfast was a very pleasant surprise - not just coffee and a croissant.

Christmas Markets Hotel
This was an EXCELLENT choice! It's located less than 5 minutes outside the gate to the Old City. We were in town for the Christmas Markets and couldn't have picked a better location. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was incredible - clean, new, large. We were within easy walking distance of the Christmas Markets inside the Old City and right on the bus and light rail lines. We were about a 10 minute bus ride to the main rail station. Definitely would stay here again!

Very convenient for the Christmas markets. Free Basel pass allowed us to take the streetcar a block away directly to the Markets. The staff was very accommodating and breakfast very good.
