Accommodation In Basel
Gaze out at the Rhine
The city of Basel sits along both banks of the Rhine with hotels and cultural attractions nestled along its edges. If you're staying on the river, you can easily take a stroll down to the Museum der Kulturen (cultural collections from various countries), Museum of Contemporary Art, or to the towering Basel Minster church.
Riverfront accommodation in Basel includes the Hotel D, which comes prepared to pamper whether you're staying in its top-floor suites or in the standard rooms. On the other side of the Rhine is the Best Western Merian Spitz, where you can dine on seafood at the hotel's restaurant before slipping beneath cosy blankets upon soft mattresses.

Ensure a splendid stay in Basel by checking in at one of the city's premier hotels renowned for delivering high-quality service, rooms and facilities. The 4-star Hotel Basel has the rooms and suites to make you crave a rainy day in, while the identically rated Hotel Spalentor Basel places you within a historic neighbourhood of charming buildings and quaint cobblestone streets.
Stay at the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois for 5-star lodgings along the Rhine. With more than 100 fairytale rooms housed within this historic building, it's not hard to find the right one for you.
