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

I booked on the web site which was easy to use. But key information is missing, such as check-in time, when breakfast is served, all the info you expect. The location is great, just a couple of hundred feet from Basel's station, but we couldn't find the entrance and ended up going into Starbuck's and asking. Turns out the entrance isn't marked for the hotel; the stairs up have a sign for City Inn on one side and Caspar's restaurant on the other. Look for the entrance just before you reach the corner.

There was a bit of confusion at check-in, no information about the hotel was given. But our rooms on the First Floor (one above ground, Americans) were generously sized with high ceilings, large windows that open, a very comfortable bed, and what seemed like recently upgraded bathrooms. But we weren't in the cheapest rooms.

Our biggest frustration was in trying to get tea and a snack. Three servers were in confab behind the bar and we waited and waited. The senior guy in black saw us but just walked off. So we gave up and went around the corner to Starbuck's which is on the same property. Service was good at 2 evening meals, but breakfast was completely buffet and no warm milk was provided for the very strong coffee, just cold. No fresh fruit except for a fruit salad swimming in syrup, but very nice little croissants. Not a great buffet but OK. But we really like the food at our 2 evening meals. I really enjoyed the falafel burger, and you can order simple things like sandwiches and salads and most night a fancy menu. Portions are large.

I was dubious about noise -- my room was on the corner between the street to the station with trams and buses and a main thorofare, but the windows have double glazing and it wasn't noisy at all. Street construction was ongoing during weekdays during my visit but the only problem was further obscuring but not blocking the hotel entrance.

Hotel is not suitable for wheelchairs.

Very comfortable

Very well located and comfortable hotel. The only reason not five stars in when we checked in our room was not ready but we were early. We were told to wait 20 mins and then given a key to our room. Our room had not been cleaned and I think was still occupied. The reaction was we needed to wait another hour with no apology. We ended up wasting our morning waiting on the room which was a shame.

Great location

Less that 15 minutes to the river, in front of the train station. Very kind staff on a luxurious atmosphere. Room is ok with pillows menu, matrix a bit soft and bathroom is nice and recently renovated. Standard breakfast, it could be improved.
The best is the location close to every public transport; train, busses, airport shuttles, etc.
