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

Decent Hotel, VERY Close to Train Station
Reviewed 1 month ago

I stayed in Hotel Euler two nights in October 2018 for business.

When I read the reviews, it was clear that the experience of guests whose room window face the train station tend to be less favourable. Well, I got the room facing the train station and I have to agree with fellow reviewers - there was a significant amount of noise from the trains, cars and trolleys. On the bright side, it took me no time to get to the hotel from the train.

The room was small, but clean, with a king bed and nice bedding; the internet was free and moderately fast. The shower was great, though the toiletries felt more like a cheap afterthought rather than a thoughtful touch.

Now, the location. There is a Starbucks and a wonderful restaurant downstairs; both expensive (I shelled out $6.60 for a red-eye coffee), but totally worth it. There is a small park next to the hotel; having gone through it several times during the day and at night, I highly recommend avoiding it. Same goes for McDonald's next door to the hotel.

The hotel provided me with a free public transportation card at check-in, which I did not get to use. I appreciated being able to walk to the Old Town and to the Rhine, though every time I was coming back to the hotel, I wished it was located not so close to all the trains.

Great Location AND a Great Hotel

We picked hotels for the location next to train stations to make our travel easier. So we didn't expect much, but this was a wonderful surprise. A gorgeous hotel with all the amenities and just a short walk to not only the train station, but also restaurants and other attractions. Inhouse coffee shop and nice restaurant. Rooms are large and comfortable, internet works well and coffee/tea available in each hallway. And the price was great too. What's not to love?

Lovely hotel

Stayed for 3 nights mid October and found the hotel exactly what I wanted it to be. Excellent location and very quiet, room was clean and had plenty of space. Service good.
Would definitely stay there again.

The Euler is our home base when visiting Basel and that is at least twice a year

I grew up in Basel. When my wife and I come to Basel to visit friends and family, we always stay at the Euler. We feel home here. This year we made short trips to South of France, Ticino and Wengen. In between them we stayed at the Euler. Friends and family come to Euler to visit us for a drink on the terrace, that a piano player plays live music not makes it only grand but truly enjoying. The Swiss and French train station is a great way to start trips to Paris and Switzerland. This year we had a rental car and I must say the valet service at the Euler is fantastic. Driving in front of the hotel onto the Central station place is such a nice luxury; you only notice when you actually do it. For those that need to do some jogging: run to the river Rhine, to the Muenster, cross over Rhine, choose 2 of the 5 bridges and you have a short 2 mile run, a 5K or if you go to the Dreilaendereck and up to the Schwarzwald bridge you have a 10K. Whereever you go, you find a lot of history. I am preparing for a week of runs in Switzerland with friends from California. Two days in Basel, we’ll run to each of the the old city wall gates and within the old city try to find as many houses built in the 1500s. Or take a guided tour from Basel Tourism.

Great Hotel

Four of us (2 couples) stayed at the Euler (pronounced OILER, by the way) for three nights- September 13-16. We were all very pleased with every aspect of this hotel.
Our rooms and bathrooms were large and comfortable, and the front desk staff was excellent. One of the newer employees, a young man from Turkey, was nice enough
to walk us through the adjoining park to our restaurant on Friday night. The bar and piano player were great. It would have been even nicer to sit outside on the terrace,
but too many smokers. But then this is Europe! Location 5 minutes from train station was very convenient as we took the train every day for day trips. Would absolutely stay here again.
