Baseler Hof is one of the finest hotels in Hamburg. We stayed at this beautiful hotel for 2 nights during our visit to Hamburg in November 2019. This review is based on our 2 nights’ stay.
Whenever we look for accommodation, we always look out for proximity to the central area or at least the main train station in the city. Fortunately, Baseler Hof is located perfectly. Hamburg HBF is just 1 km away from the hotel. Stephansplatz U-Bahn station is just 3 minutes walking from Baseler Hof.
The major tourist attractions of Hamburg such as Elbphilharmonie, Miniatur Wunderland, Townhall, Chocoversum, etc. are located within a radius of about 5 km. So we feel that the location of Baseler Hof is simply perfect.
Staff at Baseler Hof
A luxurious hotel does require friendly staff & that’s exactly what we got during our stay. Our check-in process was quick & easy. The staff members at the reception were pretty attentive and easy-going. One of their staff members also informed us about Hamburg’s famous & hidden attractions.
When you stay at Baseler Hof, you also get a free transport card which allows the holder to use public transportation of Hamburg (Buses, Trains, & Metros) for free.

Our room was located on the 7th floor. The room was quite spacious & beautifully lit. It had everything that one needs in a room including cozy vibes. The bed was comfortable & we slept like babies for both the nights.
There was enough space to store our big bags. The cupboard was very big which allowed us to keep all our belongings inside (and that’s how we kept the room clean). There was a safe inside the room where we stored our valuables like laptops, excess money, etc.
There was a minibar stocked with chips, beers, wines, chocolates & colas. We felt that prices were reasonable but you can definitely get it for cheaper prices if you go to a supermarket. The room service was pretty quick.
The bathroom was small yet perfectly built for everyday needs. There was a bathtub as well, but sadly, I didn’t get time to use it. Overall, we loved the way the entire room was set & the cleanliness of the bathroom.
The breakfast at Baseler Hof was scrumptious. You can either book it with your room or buy it separately at the hotel while checking-in. The food quality was fantastic.
Baseler Hof is outstanding when it comes to food. Kleinhuis Restaurant, located inside Baseler Hof, offers an amazing menu. The hotel also has a cozy bar & cafe as well. If you want to just stay at the hotel, you can do it without leaving the hotel even for meals & coffee.
Baseler Hof is a pretty great property when it comes to room quality, food quality, staff & even location. Thinking from the price-point, it is a smart choice. Whenever you are in Hamburg, book your stay at Baseler Hof for a pleasant experience.
We thank Hamburg Tourism for arranging a stay at this lovely hotel for us.
