We spent three nights here in October and were very happy with the price, the location and the facilities, particularly the great set of washers and driers in the basement free to use - perfect when away for an extended period to get all the clothes clean. Cheap under cover parking which in Basel is brilliant especially with their great... More

I booked a room for three nights whilst my apartment was getting ready to be moved in to. An hour after I booked I called the hotel to cancel my reservation as I had received a call from my landlord that I could now move in. The hotel wrote down my message and said that I would have to call... More

Dear Claudine! I am very sorry that you had that a negative experience in our hotel. I wish to explain that you booked a cheap non refundable rate. Unfortunately this rate has restrictions and therefore can't neither be cancelled nor refunded. If you need total flexibility, I recommend to book the regular daily rate. I am sorry again and wish...

I got the room key earlier from my employer and only had to travel there (no check-in at all). The hotel is easily accessible by tram from central basel (Aeschenplatz with tram nr... More

Location is excellent, walking distance to the main train station and trams. When you check in there is a "mobility pass" as part of your welcome package in your name that gives you free travel on all trams, buses and other forms of public transport around the area, including to Basel airport. All hotels in Basel offer the same. Rooms... More

Considering the high cost of living in Basel, this hotel was what my budget could afford and I made a good choice. The room was clean, "spacious" and modern. There is a kettle, Nespresso machine, fridge and TV available. The hotel is about 2 kms away from the Basel SBB main station and this station is also a great gem... More
