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

How to Get There

Hotel Euler
Centralbahnplatz 14
Basel, 4002 Switzerland


Great service, best location

Hotel Euler (pronounced "oiler") is lovely--the reception staff are excellent! We arrived very early and were immediately checked-in. The rooms are clean and tidy, there is complimentary fruit in the hall, at night there is live piano music, and the location cannot be beat. You can walk right over from HBF and you can walk right out the front door and catch a tram throughout the city (and beyond!). The only negative is that they turn off (or turn down) the AC in October, but it was still a bit hot while we were there. We were unable to get a good night's sleep because of the hot room temperature. Still, overall, one of the best hotel experiences during my trip (and I stayed at 4).

Excellent Hotel - Location/Service

The hotel is pretty much next to the train and tram stations. Very nice and spacious rooms at about 150 CHF including nice breakfast (pre-paid non-refundable). The staffs are extremely helpful and always with a smile!

Highly recommended!

Very convenient and pleasant hotel

This hotel is conveniently located near the station and the city center. A free pass to public transportation is available at the reception. The staff is very professional. The buffet breakfast is more limited than one could expect in such a hotel but very good all in all. The suite amenities were up to par, the bed was comfortable. A good experience.
