Motel One Basel, Basel, Switzerland
Good value in a great location convenient for the railway station and the old town. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I cannot say enough good about this Hotel. There was nothing we didn't like. Don't expect a lot of amenities in the rooms, as this is a business hotel. Even so, the 5 days/4 nights that I spent here, I go some of the best sleep I have ever had in a hotel. Both my husband and I loved the comfort of these mattresses so much, that we are ordering from that manufacturer for our home in the USA. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Decor is modern and awesome. The entire city of Basel was great.

Motel One Basel, Basel, Switzerland
Absolutely, hands-down, the most comfortable bed my husband and I have ever had in a hotel. Please bear in mind that this is a business hotel, so things like a set of drawers for your clothing and a coffee pot are not in the room. You can get coffee 24/7 in the what is the big deal, right? We never had an issue with the Wifi, and the staff was amazing. Answered every question and knew so much about the area and things to do. Would love to revisit not only Basel, but this Hotel again in the future.
