    Perfect

    The Welcome and very friedliness and helpfulness of the staff. The Bedoom was very comfortable and the breakfast was very good. The fruit salad was excellent, containing exotic fruit such as star fruit, gooseberries, lychees, kiwi fruit amongst other fruit. Assistant Luke went beyond his duty to give us such clear directions on which trams to take and the directions to walk that led us to have the most beautiful day of street music performers, chamber music, Mongolian, and Yiddisch Music ending with a youth Brass ensemble which turn Basel into one of our favourite cities. Have to come back to Basel and Royal Hotel.

    The Hotel is good opposite the station, a free tram ticket is supplied which gets you down town very quickly. The Car park opposite is also convenient. Switzerland is just however generally very expensive !!

    Hotel staff are freindly. Close to train station, tram and bus. Rooms are big with sitting area. Close to shopping area and Rhine rever. Free internet in the room.

    Noise from the traffic since the hotel is close to the main road. Breakfast need to be improved.
