The hotel is centrally located, and is next to Basel Railway Station. Our bus from Bazel Airport (about 20 mins) stopped outside the railway station- so the transfers to and from the airport was very convenient. The tram lines are outside the hotel making it convenient to get to other parts of Basel. We got a free Basel travel pass... More

Only a two night stay but fantastic value for money. Really central and excellent service. Each member of staff was attentive and ensured a good stay for me and my work colleague. Facilities were super and well maintained. Would definitely stay again when next in town.

As a solo traveler I tend to look for boutique hotels. This hotel was super convenient, a three minute walk to the Basel train station, across the street from all the trams and buses you need to see Basel. The hotel gives their guests a card for the duration of their stay so that I did not have to pay... More

We enjoyed staying in this hotel. The rooms were nicely decorated. The pillows and quilt was down, which i like and prefer. The room was very clean. The location of the hotel is great. The airport bus takes 10 minute to the central station and the hotel is right in the corner.

Hotel is owned by the Euler hotel. There is no reception for the city inn, so someone supposedly would walk with us... just to show us the elevator. Have to mount two stores with our luggage on the stairs. Single rooms are ok, but can be uncomfortable if you are abit larger than average due to the small surface you... More
