Great hotel
Great hotel in a central location and 2 car parks close by
Robert, ie1 night trip
Motel One Basel, Basel, Switzerland
3 night in the Old City
Motel 1 is a modern facility which was quiet and clean and in the heart of the old city very close to the tram stop. The absence of a teapot and ample storage for clothing was disappointing. The location is excellent. We were connecting to a riverboat and the two major riverboat docks respectively are reachable via tram 11 or tram 8. The facility provided free tram passes and a one time ferryboat pass which were much appreciated. A continental breakfast is available, but we found it more interesting and less costly just to visit a bakery or marketplatz stall or CO-OP store for breakfast.

Very Good8.0
great hotel, and location. One thing, there are no phones in the rooms. In case of an emergency how would you get in touch with someone. If you are from another country you would not know any emergency numbers to call.

Excellent Recommendation!
could not give it higher recommendation; excellent location, no transportation needed. The staff was super friendly and offered assistance due to our early arrival!
