My experience of the Metropol Hotel Basel was excellent. My wife and I spent two non- consecutive nights there. I was given an upgrade of room by the hotel manager as a birthday present. The room was spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. Complimentary chocolates were also laid out for us. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful and laid on a special breakfast for my wife and me on our second visit even though we had not paid for it. The reception staff gave us useful information about local places of interest. I would highly recommend this hotel.
