    nice hotel

    Stayed in Novohotel for 7 days and it was amazing! They clean the room everyday and give us 2 water free everyday and free tea and coffee in the room. They gave us a free basel card one for each person but in basel switzerland they always provide it free in return to pay for their city tax 4 ch per day each person. Breakfast is the same everyday. Imagine that we stayed there for 7 days and having the same food! Haha! Its 14minutes walk to the train station or take the tram 10 or 11 you walk 3mins and they will take you to basel sbb station.

    Nice hotel, small issues but they did best

    Nice hotel overall, very comfortable room and spacious, however it was very hot and we could not get the temperature down. That being said Line from reception was kind enough to open the window but then in turn it was very noicy as we faced the main road. Aside form this my son was not well and Line was amazing, she brought him some goodies and a get well card...am very grateful for he kind serviceai

    AC was not working throughout the property. Staff kept lying that someone is working. Next day new staff came and confirmed that no one works in Basel on Sunday evening !!! Ant thats true, not a single restaurant was open on Sunday evening. Overall the city left bad taste and particularly this hotel.

    Excellent hotel

    Very good hotel of the Novotel group. Practical, clean, excellent food and breakfast, convenient location, garage parking, etc. If there was a indoor spa/pool would be really one of the top scorer in Basel with excellent value for money

    The location was close enough to ghe centre to walk though free public transport was a welcome for tired legs. The hotel amenities were also good though breakfast could have been better with more choice on offer.
