We had a night stop in this hotel and I was impressed with the service, size of the twin room and the complementary products. We also received free tram passes to cover out stay and a very enjoyable breakfast.

I was one of the unfortunate people to stay in this hotel from the group booking mentioned below this review. What the post did not say is that I was mistakenly charged an additional night to my credit card. So not only did the hotel insist on all 5 of us paying for all 3 nights of our stay when... More

I had a group reservation for a number of colleagues. During the 1st night of a 3 night stay the temperature in the small rooms was so unbearable it was impossible to sleep; there is no air con and not even a fan! The following morning after hardly any sleep the group decided that they would have no choice to... More

This property is very handy, if you do not have transport. The tram stops at the front door and it is only a short ride to the main railway station, or the shopping district. Some of the sights are only a change of trams away. At the time of our visit, free public transport in- and around Basel, was handed... More

Anyway, it was not my problem. Clean and neat, like most European hotels. Breakfast was satisafctory with eggs et al. Half hour tram ride to Messe... More

Very clean rooms, with a great breakfast in the morning. Ok location, though not near the centre of Basel really you can walk. The doors lock early, so it's not always possible to stay out late which is a downside. Generally a nice enough place to stay, but nothing special.

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
