Staff were extremely helpful from start to finish, hotel is very central to all that Basel has to offer.they also supply you with a transport card for the length of your stay to use on all public transport which became very useful.
I was at the Victoria for a brief overnight stay between planes and trains and wanted a place close to the train station. The Victoria could not have been more convenient, being directly across the street from the main entrance to the Basel train station. I was put in a very small room on the back of the hotel, which was fine (like all Swiss hotel rooms, clean and efficient) but not luxurious. The staff was great and the price was OK. I would do it again but hope they gave me a better room.

Great breakfast selection (additional cost); friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable bed, very clean room. Parking is a couple of blocks away - reasonable cost. Can park on street outside hotel for 1/2 hour while you check in. Great place to stay.

We stayed at Hotel Basel over night to board our river cruise trip. The front desk staff are very friendly and efficient. The man checking us in made a great suggestion for a walk. If we would have gone the way I thought, we would have ended up in an industrial end of town.
Beautiful city and the hotel's location is perfect!! Right in the middle of city centre and close to market square.
Would stay again.

Can't fault this hotel in anyway. The price was a bit higher than average for the area but I put that down to the football being on and booking late. Looked very new and the rooms were modern and excellent. No Tea/coffee facilities in the room which was a bit disappointing but a minor issue.
Note the Swiss have public transport sewn up - you can get a No2 tram from the SBB train stn to right outside the hotel and use your booking reference as your ticket (providing you are traveling to the hotel on the day of check in). When you check in you will be given a 'mobility card' which entitles you unlimited use of trams and buses for the duration of your stay. You must pay a local tax however on check out but worked out about £3 per person per day, a small price to pay for ruthlessly efficient public transport!

Great place for one day in Basel. Easily accessed from bus route 50 between airport and train station. It's the big gold building next to the the tall red one (the casino!) right there at the bus stop. The bus runs every 10 minutes if not sooner. Comfortable room. Clean and modern. I was there just to sleep before catching a flight the next morning, so I did not try any of the amenities offered.
