4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were in a room with fitness amenities that included an exercise/stretching bar and a stationary bike. It would have been great if I had been sitting in meetings all day, but not necessary for a tourist walking miles each day. Appreciated the access to bottled water and soft drinks on each floor. Clean, spacious room. Our room rate did... More

The hotel is very well located as you have to, practicaly, cross the street from the train station to reach it. The room is confortable and silent. Good shower and new bathroom. Staff helpful. Recommended.

This hotel is convenient to the train station and easy walking distance to town, river and the trams. The hotel was recently renovated so the rooms have new floors (no carpets) and bathrooms. There is a lovely breakfast in the morning. The staff is helpful -- however doesn't have a long list of restaurants to recommend. The street is noisy... More

I was there for the Carnival (Fasnacht), that was an unforgettable experience. The hotel is located next to the railway station and is very easy to access. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was good. I appreciate that on first day of the Carnival (Morgenstreich) they offered breakfast at 2:30 a.m. and also extended the regular breakfast hours to... More

We stayed just one night, but will definitely be staying here again. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. You get free local travel with your reservation so can get the bus to and from the airport free of charge and it stops virtually outside the hotel. The hotel is right next to the tram and train station also so... More

Though a small hotel but clean, quiet & cozy. Reception staff very helpful. My room was lovely, spacious, warm and so comfortable. Though I'd love larger bed but it was fine, I had good sleep anyway. Excellent value for money. Nice breakfast. Good coffee. Walking distance from train. I'll go again

Nice hotel in a good location. My room was very small, I'm not sure if this is because it was a single room or not. The rate was still quite high though. Breakfast is included in the room rate, but if you want eggs (other than cold soft boiled ones) and bacon, then it's extra. I was shocked that scrambled... More

Very convenient for bus to airport, and for train station. Well decorated. Nice breakfast, shame there's no restaurant. Staff very helpful and efficient. I stayed for three nights for a seminar in Basel and was happy with this hotel.
