Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Basel

With an open-minded outlook and an atmosphere that cleverly combines tradition and innovation, the city of Basel is home to a great choice of independent hotels. If you’re looking for somewhere a little out of the ordinary for your stay in Basel -- from a historic hotel near the old town to a modern apartment or a more rural retreat -- then it’ll be easy to find an independent hotel to suit you.

Find Your Perfect Basel Independent Hotel

For truly authentic charm and a unique place to stay, look no further than Basel’s medieval old town. Situated on the south bank of the River Rhine, it’s one of the most well-preserved historic city centres in all of Europe, with a wealth of beautiful buildings dating back to the 15th Century. Choose one of the independent hotels in the vicinity and you could be just paces from Basel Cathedral, or the colourful decorative splendour of the Town Hall and Market Square or the pretty boutique-lined alleyways.

But it’s not just traditional hotels that Basel does so well. You’ll also find a range of uber-modern independent accommodation close to the centre on either side of the Rhine, so no matter where you’re heading in the city, you’ll find somewhere suitable to stay close by.

Make Yourself at Home in Basel

As well as hotel rooms and suites, independent accommodation in Basel includes a good selection of apartments complete with kitchen facilities, lounge areas and that little bit more space to call your own. Adding to Basel’s feeling of freedom for the independent visitor, there’s a great public transport network including buses, trains and trams, which can get you swiftly and efficiently around all the sights of the city and further afield, too.

Explore All of Basel’s Top Sights

See how many sights on Basel’s A to Z of must-sees you can tick off during your visit. Can you get all the way from the architecture tour to Zoo Basel? With a surprising variety of attractions in a compact and welcoming city centre, Basel is a great place to discover from your base at an independent hotel.
