It was simply an unforgettable experience! Yes, to be honest my bed was uncomfortable (very soft), the noise of the tramways outside was annoying, but from the hall to your room everything is fascinating. Also the lift can be an experience! The most perfect cleaning I've ever seen in the room and the bathroom. A fabulous bathroom (with such beautiful... More

Just a few yards for the SBB train station and a major tram hub: perfect location. Great service, great food, great room, and cheaper than you might expect. Our original plans had us at thishotel for 2 nights and then on to Murren. After staying in Murren for two nights we decided that we loved Basel and had to go... More

This hotel proves one of the best experiences, from the hot towel and drink at reception, the friendly staff. The little extra surprises all through our stay. Rooms were lovely clean and well serviced. Will be back

Stayed here one night passing through from Swiss Alps. Very close to station. Near to city centre, so could spend a few hours exploring city without travelling far. Beautifully run. Minor problem logging onto Wifi, reception staff very helpful. Breakfast buffet excellent. Love idea of having free drinks and ice available in corridor. Only wish that they had a restaurant,...

There is so much to love in Switzerland, and this hotel was great. Upscale, great Euro décor and appointments, gracious and tasty brunch/continental breakfast included. Internet in lobby. Strategically located in city center for walking, sight seeing, close to what seemed to be attractions of the area, well marked guides and signage. It was wonderful. Actually the trip was March...

Stayed with a number of friends whilst on a choir tour. Perfect location, not far from the airport and great transport links. All needs catered for and a fabulous breakfast. Would happily make a return visit and recommend.

Perfect location across from the train station and 5 tram stops. With all that, my room which faced it all, was quiet and provided a good night's sleep. Nice to have free water, juice and soda 24/7 and a coffee/tea machine in the room. A complimentary ice cream was offered. Room and bathroom were clean and well appointed. Front staff,... More

Got a free room upgrade. Staff spoke English. Room had good a/c. Hotel has an elevator. About a half-block to Basel train station. Bed was comfy. Had free minibar items and ice. Spacious room. We heard no road noise and room had heavy drapes that really blocked out daylight. Great breakfast. Only negative was the slippery bathtub. Switzerland is a... More

It was a great stay. Nice and helpful staff. A few steps from train station and in front of many bus stops. Room was very quiet despite the window was facing on main street. The bathroom was spacious with a comfortable shower. I think I'll return here my next time in BASEL.
