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

Stayed for 2 nights and was on business. Small rooms and bathrooms, typical business hotel. Always wondered how some of the taller people of Europe managed to fit into the beds and the bathrooms. 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

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
