                        This hotel is very good and budget economic and well located for the people like to travel the turist spot in Basel and around. The breakfasts are included in the hotel package and of very good quality and very much well served. Prticularly I am impressed about the cleanness in every respect. Also the hotel staffs are very much friendly.

                        But I found only the internet facility, that fully disappointed me and I think there should be phone facility in every room that I could not find. Some electrical points was not working properly. So in my opinion the standard of this hotel is no doubt very good but a little improvement is still needed.

                        I have stayed at this hotel in the past and that is why I've used it again. It is only ten minutes walk from Badischer Bahnhof railway station which enables you to travel into the city (5 minutes) for other destinations in Switzerland and elsewhere. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms are adequately equipped with tv, phone etc and the beds are comfortable and clean. The bathroom had a decent sized shower with excellent hot water control and was scrupulously clean. Breakfast consisted of the usual range of cold meats and cheeses, cereals and fruit juice with coffee being made individually in a coffee machine with it's own supply of beans.

                        A selection of hot food at breakfast time would be welcome considering the cost of the hotel.

                        The only good thing is the location.

                        The hotel is worse than many of youth hostels i have ever been. Dirty, Tiny room and unconfortable. The parking lot smell rubish and the access from there to the reception seemed a horror movie. The forniture od the room could have been an old kitkchen cupboard ... awsome...Really dissapointing.

                        Nice location. Well affordable price. Friendly staff.

                        WIFI is free but slow. And I could not get on to the Internet on the first day.

                        Really handy for the trams, with a stop right outside

                        No coffee facilities in room, wireless internet very intermittant (it didn't work for 24hrs of my stay)

                        The location. Close to city nter and well connected to public transport.

                        This is an old hotel and the rooms are tatty. There were stains on the carpet chair and one had the feling of being in a dirty environment. The internet did not work and the bed was uncomfortable. The rate was outrageous for the acommodation provided and the breakfast was limited and of poor quality.

                        It was clean, quiet and good location next to the exhibition grounds.

                        Hotel Alexander is a modest hotel that profits from its location right across from the exhibition halls of the Basel Trade Fair. When a big event is in town, it's almost impossible to get a room anywhere. And that's why people pay inflated prices to stay here. Plus points are a generous breakfast and an easy walk to the Trade Fair. Like all Basel Hotels, Hotel Alexander offers a "mobility ticket" that allows you to ride the trams and buses for free.

                        The hotel is located right on a main road with traffic and tram lines. The noise level doesn't fade until midnight and starts to pick up at 5 a.m. The windows are well insulated, so when closed, it's bearable. At the end of September 2010, the room was cool enough for this work. But I didn't see any air conditioning, so I definitely would not recommend this place in summer. Also, the overall look and feel of the hotel is a bit run down. They have done some superficial remodeling and given the rooms fancy names (Hollywood, Manhattan), but there is never a doubt that you are staying in a budget hotel. My advice for Basel is to book early at a higher class hotel. You will pay a little more, but get a lot more for your money.

                        Quite close to the centre of the city by tram. Breakfast included in the price. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly.

                        Rooms were old fashion looking. Price quite expensive for the standard of hotel.
