This is an excellent value budget hotel. It's located a little way from the centre of the city, but the hotel kindly provided a free pass for all public transport; with a tram stop outside the front door of the hotel, it's quick and easy to get into the centre. Plus on a nice day, this makes for a nice... More

Stayed here for three nights in mid August 2014 and have no complaints. The hotel is a good budget hotel a bit out of the centre of Basel, but with a tram stop right in front so it only takes few minutes to get to city centre. The breakfast was a very typical hotel brekkie with few types of cheese,... More

This hotel is a little bit out of the tourist part of Basel, but there's a tramstop right outside, and with the free tourist card, it takes just a few minutes to get to the centre (and costs nothing). The decor seems slightly dated, but our room was very clean, and came with thoughtful extras like a capsule coffee machine.... More

This place has a good price, they give you a free public transport card, and it is located not too far from the centre of Basel. The only downside is the lack of parking space, but they do have a backup parking lot hidden out of view. The included breakfast has a good choice of food including eggs, hams and... More

I need to stay a few days in hotel in Basel; I chose this one because of low price with breakfast and free parking. I was definitely positively surprised, because hotel offered more than I've expected. Except free parking, there was free WiFi and Mobility Ticket for free public transport. Hotel is not in Basel, but there is tramway no.... More

Don't be turned off by the fact that this actually isn't in Basel. For all intents and purposes it is. Birsfelden has a charm of its own. There are several nice restaurants on the street. My room was pristine with a lovely view. I walked from the train station and it took about a half hour. Trams are free in... More

Doubted between poor and average as i spent a though night trying to sleep on a mattress that was only slightly more comfortable than the lino flooring and a pillow as fluffy as a handkerchief, but then again, some people like a solid slab to sleep on. Good things to say about the Alfa too: conveniently located at a tram... More

I chose the hotel because it was relatively inexpensive and had free parking. In terms of making a choice, here are a few things to add/reinforce to the other reviews. First, the rooms are a bit cramped. The desk was not as functional because it was difficult to get the chair in and out because of the beds. The review... More
