Looking for hotels in Basel?

Basel is a truly unique place to visit, and offers some wonderful hotels to stay in. Choose from a classic room in a beautiful grand hotel, or a modern guesthouse, and you can be sure of a crisp and comfortable Swiss experience. Make sure you try some delicious Swiss muesli for breakfast!

One of the things that makes Basel so special is its location; right on the Swiss, French and German border, with the beautiful Rhine river running through. This also makes car hire in Basel a good idea, as there is a lot to explore in the area.

Basel is a culturally rich city, with a huge variety of museums and galleries. It is also renowned for its theatre and opera scene, and hosts some of the country’s finest performances. So a hotel in the city centre can be great for access to all these sights, though won’t be the cheapest option.

Basel is easy to travel to, with a major train station connecting it to the rest of Europe with precise Swiss efficiency. You can also fly to one of the only airports in the world that is shared by two countries; Switzerland and France. Find your cheap flights to Basel using our simple and comprehensive flight search.

Basel hotels include gorgeous high end options, many in the historic centre of the city, such as the beautiful four star Hotel Euler. If you are traveling on a budget however, the bright blue YMCA Hostel Basel has a great atmosphere and welcoming character.

Basel is a perfect blend of art, history and culture. The 'Culture Capital of Switzerland' has about 40 museums, interesting stories and a unique location making it possible to visit Germany and France just in a few minutes! Summer is the liveliest time to enjoy the local culture: swimming in the Rhine, barbecuing, enjoying a drink in one of the riverside bars or attending an open-air party.

Basel doesn't disappoint. If you're looking for incredible eats in this city, try heading to Kraft Basel or Restaurant Stucki.

Basel is one of the most amazing cities in which I was so far. Take a walk along the Rhine and in summer you can even swim in it with a "swim bag". There are many bars and nightclubs and the people are very friendly. Absolutely loved it!

Basel is gorgeous and has all of the charm you may imagine it would have. I wish I had more time to explore. I've heard there are a lot of great museums there. I was fine just strolling along the Rhine.
