Customer reviews

TripAdvisor score

Trip advisorThis hotel won the Certificate of Excellence from the world's leading review website, which honours hotels & accommodations that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

Your Destination

The Passage hotel's name was inspired by its location - it stands on Basel’s ancient fortifications, the boundary between the old town and the new city.

Stroll through the historic centre of Basel or along the Rhine River, admiring the city's superb architecture. Your hotel is within walking distance from the central train station and the Freie Strasse's luxury shopping, as well as numerous cafes, bars and restaurants.

Basel is renowned for its numerous museums and galleries, and many are just a short stroll away, such as the Kunstmuseum- home to a large collection from the 15th to the 20th centuries. There is also a fantastic Christmas Market from 23rd November until 23rd of December.

The Passage 4*

This smart boutique opened in 2014 and is fast becoming one of the highest rated hotels in the city.

The Passage is a functional four-star city hotel with lashings of cool, somewhere between Scandi chic and space age...Basel architecture firm WyssSantos have artfully used wafting chiffon, accents of plum and pistachio green, and intriguing lighting to make the hotel feel inviting not stark.
