Guest reviews for Hotel Schweizerhof Basel

4 out of 5

Great location and a wonderful experience

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel was great for what we were looking to do - spend a relaxing night in a large Swiss city while traveling between Germany and France. Close proximity to the train station was a high priority, and this hotel was only a block away. While not cheap, we were rewarded with a very pleasant and refreshing night in a location that you would not expect to be able to do so. We recommend this hotel.
