A welcome from the heart

With a warm „Grüezi“ we welcome you at the Merian Hotel Basel, situated by the Rhine.
In the heart of Basel, right next to the „Mittlere Brücke“, one of Basel’s numerous bridges, we are pleased to mention that we are the only 4-star hotel which stands directly next to the Rhein. Our motivated team, our top location right near a tram stop and our proximity to the Basel Fair Center are all factors which are very much appreciated by city tourists as well as business people.

Our hotel is situated in a traffic controlled zone, which means that cars and other vehicules are only allowed to pass through at certain times of the day. But this needn’t bother you as it never gets really noisy. As a paying guest you have free access to our private hotel garage any time. You are only three tram stops away from the City Center but if you prefer to take a stroll along the Rhine, you will find yourself in front of the RATHAUS, our town-hall, within only five minutes of walking distance.

Our room rates all include a Mobility Ticket for public transport as well as a unique entrance fee to a nearby fitness studio and the rent for a bicycle in order to explore the city and the nearby surroundings.


Our hotel staff will be pleased to be at your entire disposal for business-, cultural-, or private events and will be responsable for your well-being. Our premises can hold up to 120 persons. Enjoy a cool glass of wine or any other sundowner on our beautiful terrace overlooking the Rhine. Just relax there after an eventful or stressful business,- or shopping day and look forward to an excellent evening meal in one of our renowned restaurants. You migh event prefer a large steak from our charcoal grill on the terrace.
