We spent 3 nights here and loved every minute of it. It is located just far enough away from the Old City that it is very quiet and peaceful and yet just a 5 minute walk from every kind of restaurant, store, cafe and people watching you could want. The staff were so very kind and truly cared about making... More

Stayed 4 nights on business in October 2013 My room was a good size and modern. Wifi worked perfectly. Breakfast was really great everything felt so clean The reason I gave 4 and not 5 stars is because I was staying on the first floor and it was quite noisy (people in the corridors, guest walking in the room above,...

A small quiet hotel, close to railway station, with excellent service and beautiful breakfast. We arrived late at night, even later than expected, and were a little concerned as we knew reception would be closed. However all was as had been explained. The door code worked, the key left for us, and our room was quiet, and hopefully we didn't... More

We stayed just one night in this hotel but found it very comfortable and (after a little trouble finding it in the first place), well located for the town centre and railway station. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, even being able to provide us with the loan of a needle and thread. The bed in the double room... More

I have stayed here a few times and find the owners very friendly. Rooms are small but adequate. The location is ideal for Barfussplatz and trams to most parts of the city. During the summer it is also nice to sit in the courtyard and enjoy your breakfast of a morning too.

We used the hotel for a quick stop after arriving at the airport. The hotel was in a nice quiet area and was beautifully appointed. The rooms are very clean and tidy. The highlight of the stay was the delicious breakfast in their beautiful garden (The weather helped).

Once I'd struggled to find this hotel, I found it a very friendly place, with staff who tried to be helpful, and it was in a quiet street. The rooms were fine, although the lighting could have been better, and there was no issue with noise. Basel proved to be a much more interesting place than I had expected, and... More

I have come to Switzerland about 4 times. I always stay at this hotel. Yes, it is small and yes, the shower is a bit uncomfortable, but when you weigh it in terms of other hotels in Switzerland it is perfect. The location is amazing (especially as an English speaker Paddy O'Reillys Irish Bar is literally down the street). The... More

Nice, small hotel on a quiet street. The breakfast (included) includes excellent coffee and a very nice selection of breads, cold meats and cheeses. I think the owners value quality over quantity and I was very satisfied with the offerings. Nice dining room with a view of the courtyard. I would suggest getting directions from the owners, so you don't... More
