Description Conference Center

Fine dining and unique Basel hospitality are the order of the day at the Sorell Hotel Merian, located directly on the banks of the Rhine in Kleinbasel. This 4-star business hotel with 65 spacious bedrooms provides a multitude of banqueting and seminar rooms in a variety of sizes. A highlight is the magnificent Meriansaal, which features late-Biedermeier architecture and a stunning panorama. Kleinbasel’s official gallery on the Rhine, as the room has traditionally been described, offers guests a wonderful view of the Rhine and the picturesque old town of Basel on the opposite bank. The Messe Basel convention centre and a wide range of attractions can be easily reached on foot.
