A picturesque city with plenty to see and do, Hotel Rochat provides a convenient centrally-located base from which to enjoy Basel. In a country that is known for being rather pricey, the rooms are reasonably priced (comparatively speaking) and offer good value for money.

The hotel bills itself as being a two-star hotel that offers three-star comfort, and the guest rooms definitely deliver.
