Property condition

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort


On arrival, the hotel was locked with an automated check-in machine, which did not work. The hotel telephone number rang out repeatedly. It took around 20 minutes for someone to turn up and let me in. For two days there was no hot water and no-one to inform.

Stayed 2 nights in Sep 2019

  • Disliked: Staff & service

Not recommended

No hot water, building work ongoing. Reception cluttered and disorganised. Plus the street is full of prostitutes. Not what I want when finding my hotel.

    Clean, comfortable. Right above red light district, a clear minus


      White Horse Hotel in Basel, Switzerland.

      The people who worked in the hotel were very nice. Unfortunately, that area is in the center of where the local prostitues congregate. Outside the hotel in the street, they were always active solicitating work from the male passerbys. I was there attending a conference at the nearby conference center. I did not have my wife with me. Had she been with me, I would have quiclky moved to another hotel. It is not a place where one would like to bring their wife.
