Basel Tourist Office: Hotel rooms in all categories have been reserved for delegates at a discounted rate. We are happy to be able to offer hotels from budget to first class. You can book the hotels from this special list using this specific link.
Individual reservations : Participants can also book their rooms by contacting a hotel directly or by checking out options on their favourite hotel booking services.
Visitors staying overnight in hotels in the city will receive a BaselCard when checking in . This allows free use of the public transport system in the city of Basel. On the day of arrival, your reservation confirmation counts as a transfer ticket from the train station or Euroairport to your accommodation.
Please note: the local organizing committee cannot be held responsible for any bookings made with hotels that are not on the official list.
Tips for travelling on a budget
Border countries: It may be worthwhile looking at the city surroundings including locations just across the border in France or Germany. Weil am Rhein (Germany) is located 20 minutes by tram from the city centre and St. Louis or Mulhouse (France) is located 30 minutes by public transport from the city centre. However these hotels outside Basel do not deliver the complimentary Basel Card which allows free use of the public transport system and a 50% discount on most tourist attractions. It will then be necessary to add extra costs for the 24 h TriRegio Mini Ticket (9,10 EUR) valid in France, Germany and Switzerland.
Stay in a librarian’s home: A few librarians working at Basel University Library are offering free accommodation in their homes during the congress to colleagues from the WHO’s HINARI Groups A and B countries.
The number of offers is relatively limited. For more information contact us.
