What We Love

  • Central location on Basel’s main square for transport
  • Solid business amenities such as free WiFi and a 24-hour office
  • Smooth city infrastructure makes sightseeing a breeze
  • Comfortable, stylish rooms
  • Multilingual, keen-as-mustard staff
  • Every guest receives a Mobility Ticket, which provides free public transport throughout the city for your entire stay

What To Know

  • A city tax of approximately $4 per person, per night, will be collected by the property at checkout
  • The hotel is situated on a busy transport hub. Double glazing works miracles, but truly light sleepers might still hear trains and trams
  • The local dialect (Baseldytsch) is famously tricky, but almost everyone speaks English
  • Certain bars in the city are (still!) for smokers. You’ll need to pay around $10 for a ’smoker’s license’ (allowing entry to all the ‘Fümoar’ establishments) to drink there, even if you don’t smoke
  • The Euler was last renovated in 2008, and is scheduled for refurbishment in 2014


  •  Bar

Very nice stay....

The location cannot be better. You are just 1 minute away from the train main station in Basel. You can walk down town (15 min) and also “Klein Basel” (20 Min) which is the traditional part of Basel. The hotel has style and class. It’s maybe on the pricey side, but worth staying. If you don’t want to spend 20 Franken for a breakfast there is Starbucks right next door. I had a very pleasant stay and will come back again.

This is an exceptional property in Basel....

This is an exceptionally well run hotel. We have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and it never ceases to impress me. This is a classic European style hotel. The regular rooms are comfortable,not as large as the rooms in North America but a good size for Europe. We had a Junior Suite this time and it was wonderfully spacious and comfortable- worth every penny. The staff are incredible, from the front desk to the waiters, the room service staff and the cleaning people. They anticipate your needs and if you request something, it is done immediately. They are all genuinely concerned about your stay and making it exceptional. These are well selected, well trained people. No detail too small escapes their eye. We returned from dinner late last week to catch a staff member out front picking dead leaves from the plants that line the outside dining and bar area - on the front porch of the hotel. If you want location, you cannot do any better. The main railroad station is 200 yards away from the hotels front door. The bus to the Mulhouse airport is right in front of the train station. All of the main tram lines stop right in front of the hotel. You can literally have breakfast in Switzerland, take a tram to Germany for lunch and go to Leymen in France for dinner - all for free with the free tram pass you get from the hotel that is included in your daily Basel city hotel tax. I know, because we did it and it was a unique experience. You will be hard pressed to find a hotel in Basel as exceptional as the Hotel Euler. If you are on a budget then stay at their sister hotel adjoining the Euler, the Hotel City Inn - a 3 star property. The rooms are large by European standards and you get to use all of the Euler’s ammenities, at a discounted price. You cannot go wrong. Trust me, stay at this hotel, you will not regret it.

No on site parking, although if travelling by Cab the driver will take you directly to the steps of the hotel. If self driving parking is available at the underground SBB railway station then its a short walk to the hotel, overnight fee is 50CHF payable by cash or card, there is an office usually occupied close to the ticket machines if help is required.
The hotels position is perfect for access to public transport, Trams espeially however there is an audiable price to pay if your room is situated at the fromt of the hotel the rumble will wake you in the mornings and they do start early.WiFi not good for streaming if needed although its free. The food excellent, staff helpful. My room was small with no air conditioning, I asked to change after a sleepless night and they accommadated my request with good grace a double with a small fee attached no problems as I remained there for almost two weeks.

Charms of Yesterday

This hotel still maintains the charms of the past when it was the in place for Royalty and high society travellers. The entrance is stunning with beautiful chandeliers, a welcoming lobby bar and piano player in the reception area. To top it off, it is in a great location near the Railway station.
