Good, basic work stay in Basel
A clean, quiet place, good for a business stay. Slightly further from things than similarly priced places. Very few staff and reception closed outside work hours but all we’re very friendly. Automated check-in after hours

We loved the Royal!
We stayed at the Royal while waiting to board our cruise. So we stayed only one night. But the manager greeted us warmly, offered advice, made some restaurant recommendation and so forth before we even checked in. Then he followed up on a bogey taxi driver who overcharged us. The service was stellar. We loved the room. Modern, clean, elegant and efficient.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We loved that this hotel was across from the train station and just a 5 min trolley ride to the old part of Bern on the Rhine. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed a nice breakfast.
