About Hyperion Hotel Basel, Basel, Switzerland

Sleek glass high-rise in Basel's business center

Next to the fairgrounds

Just steps from Basel's congress center and fairgrounds, Hyperion Hotel Basel offers a convenient location and great views. The Old Town across the River Rhine, with its cobblestone streets and medieval churches, is about a 20-minute walk.

Barefoot in Basel

You'll be a 20-minute walk from Basel Historical Museum, located at Barfüsserkirche, or "bare-feet church," with artifacts dating back to the Middle Ages. For more sights, the castle-like Gate of Spalen, with turrets and tiles, is one of Switzerland's most beautiful buildings.

Unbeatable city views

The hotel provides free passes to the tram, which stops right by the entrance; guests also appreciate the gym and sauna. The Timeless bar offers a glimpse of Basel, while the view from floor-to-ceiling windows at Restaurant Gaumenfreund is also hard to beat. Guests can make use of the Executive Lounge with panoramic city views, located on the 30th floor. A breakfast buffet is served each morning.

Free WiFi, city views

Spread over 10 floors, the 224 rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with city views. You can work comfortably with free WiFi and a desk, and unwind with a drink from the minibar and a movie on the satellite TV.

Fabulous 8.6 From 174 reviews

Hyperion Hotel Basel, Basel, Switzerland
Style and charm meet functionality and generocity
Our trip to Basal was a business trip and the Hyperion was perfectly situated next to the conference center. The rooms were clean, the bathroom sparkling and cleverly designed and the real bonus was all items in the mini bar were included in the price.

Very Good8.0
Great room - pity about the room service.
Overall a good stay, but let down by the long wait for Room Service on the second night. The first night it was very quick - within 10 minutes, but on the second day it took nearly an hour, was luke warm when it eventually arrived, and the burger bap was soggy! The pudding had virtually melted too. Such a shame as the hotel is really classy, and their weekend rates are great value.

Great hotel at a great price
Great hotel in a good location. The service at reception was fantastic every time we used them. Hotel was moder, clean and the rooms were the same. Mini bar included was a nice perk! My only complaint would be poor quality pillow and only 1 each were not comfortable. Approximately a 10 minute walk to the old town and main shopping area and a 5 minute walk from the train station, wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Why Concrete Floors in rooms?
Quick stop off for work, the hotel is nice, lovely reception staff, bed was comfy, room was nice, but it had a Concrete floor which wasn't very nice.
