Coop turns a Basel department store into a luxury hotel


The 4-star Hotel Märthof opens on Basel's market square in July. It is operated by the BâleHotels Group, a division of the Coop cooperative. She sees this investment as a commitment to Basel as a location.

The BâleHotels group, which belongs to Coop, is opening a 4-star boutique hotel in the middle of Basel's old town. The Hotel Märthof will open its doors on July 28, 2021. The renovation of the historic building began in 2019. Its neo-baroque facade will be preserved and will be combined with generous window fronts, according to a message from Coop . From 1983 a department store was housed in the complex.

In the Märthof there will be space for 68 high-quality rooms as well as the Bohemia restaurant with a spacious bar and a terrace directly on the market square. The hotel also has a fitness and wellness area, a banquet room and a roof terrace.

The BâleHotels Group is thus continuing to invest in the Basel location, according to Coop. The BâleHotels Group operates five hotels in Basel, Muttenz BL and Bern.
