    Staff was obliging to our requests, our booked room had shower only and upon our request was changed to a larger room with bath at a reasonable extra.

  • Single
    7.0

    Location compared to the railway station and the tram station, especially as you get a free travel pass for all public transport during your stay.

    The room I had was more like a storage room. It did contain everything one needed, but the room was definitely too small.

  • Single

    Nice and clean room, each day again! Compliments for housekeeping!

    Television and WiFi internet had very bad connection. I was not able to watch tv. I was not able to make use of WiFi in my room.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    I liked the configuration and comfort of this junior suite and the vieuws to outside. Also the situation was excellent.

    The look and quality of entrance materials seemed a little used ( carpet on the stairs ).

  • Older travelers
    9.0

    We4 only stayed 1 night en route to Germany. It was very comforable - breakfast expensive.

  • Couple

    The hotel is just 200 yards from the main railway station basel.thats a big plus.the staff is very cooperative.the room is a bit small but then switzerland is damn costly.for cleanliness I give a ten on ten.overall good value for money.

    Small rooms.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The hotel was in a good location the free travel pass was a real bonus.Staff friendly rooms attractive and contempary excellent huge shower. Coffee and fruit on landing good idea and appreciated.

    Breakfast should be included 28sf is very expensive for breakfast but it was easy to go across to Migros in the station.

  • Single
    10.0

    the room was very cosy, under the roof, as quiet as silence and very relaxing.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The location was very convenient for travelers coming in by train. It is right on the plaza from the train station. There was a sign on the Hotel Euler saying that it was also the check-in for the Hotel City Inn, so we did not get lost as other reviewers have reported. Our room had a very large bathroom and was freshly painted and bright. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

    Everything in Switzerland is so expensive, so this hotel on our first night in the country was our introduction to Swiss prices. Seeing the costs of food and lodging across Switzerland, I guess this is about par. The room was clean and comfortable, but traveling in the United States,we would get a similar room for much less cost. We opted out of the 28 chf per person breakfast and instead bought juice, rolls and cheese at the nearby food market.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    The hotel/room was clean, quiet, near the station and trams. Coffee, tea and fresh fruit available.

    The rooms were over-heated
