Review of Motel One Basel

Pros: Location, room cleanliness
Cons: Everything seems OK to us.
Location: Right downtown, lots of restaurants and shopping nearby, near trams.
We gave this hotel a try due to location and price, and were very happy with our choice. This hotel is right in the center of town. Plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from practically right outside the door, and it is located not far from the Marktplatz, the Rhine River, and Munster Cathedral. The rooms were very nice and clean and decent size for a downtown location of any city. Highly recommend this and for the price, you can't beat it. We had an inner room on the 4th floor, and it was extremely quiet. We chose to get breakfast at the Confesserie Schiesser (they open at 10), so can't comment on breakfast.
