"Comfortable bed, friendly staff, good location. Generally good breakfast but could consist of more vegetables. "
Location and surroundings
Surround yourself with art and design
As soon as you arrive at the reception, a collage of exhibition posters from the nearby Kunsthalle tips visitors off that the theme of our Motel One Basel is definitely ART. Illuminated picture frames stylishly showcase the bottles behind the bar, while breakfast can be savoured in an authentically decorated atelier area with Overdyed Chairs by Diesel for Moroso and decorated by brushes, paint tubes, splashes of colour and “Tu-be” chandeliers by Ingo Maurer. The focal point of this design is the “Soundscape” installation by local artist Adrian Falkner, bringing visual expression to the acoustic ambiance and reproducing the life and chatter from our lobby.
Our affordable Design Hotel is located right in the centre of Basel’s Old Town, handy for sights such as the Basel Minster, Town Hall and Petersplatz. The central station and trade fair centre are also within easy reach. If you're in Basel on business or a city break, you can get anywhere in the city in minutes using the multi-line tram stop on Barfüsserplatz. Discover our centrally-located Basel hotel for yourself, and take inspiration from its creative environment.
