Stayed here for 2 days recently. We were staying for a Marilyn Monroe exhibition and for the car show in Geneva. Room was round the back. It was quiet. Room was clean, lovely, big. Wi-fi worked well. Only a 5 minute walk to the Museum, shops etc. bus from train station stops outside the hotel. Hubby went to the tourist... More

All three of the front desk staff members with whom I had the pleasure of interacting were professional, warm, and genuinely interested in providing the best service possible. I had the misfortune of traveling to Basel on business and showing up at check-in with two minor medical emergencies (airplane ear induced... More

Really good hotel and an ideal base for exploring Basel. Great location within a short walk of Basel's main sights and shops/restaurants. Really friendly and helpful staff. Modern, clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Highly recommended

We stayed two nights after a long flight from Australia.The hotel was exactly as advertised. It was clean, comfortable and relaxing. The garden courtyard look very inviting if not for the weather. The room was as we expected, not too large but not too small and while the bathroom was small, as everyone comments, it was fine. The breakfast was... More

This hotel has rooms that are too small to be called as a hotel room. I would call it a glorified hostel! The room are clean, bathrooms are basic with poor quality toiletries, the cable has few English language options. however, the prices are more than four star hotels in other major European countries would charge but I guess that's...

The room was small but nice. Washbasin was not inside the bathroom, that was bit odd. Proximity to city center makes it good choice. Breakfast was fine. You can choose this one for short stay, I suppose.

We stayed here on a weekend visit to the Christmas markets and I couldn't have picked a better place! It's a quick bus ride from the central station, right beside Barfüsserplatz and the main shopping/sightseeing spots in this lovely city! The room was clean, the hotel provided travel passes, maps, complimentary drinks/fruit as well as Advent chocolates! Multilingual staff were... More

Great location, with a 3-minute walk to Barfüsserplatz and Old Town. Walking distance to the train station as well (or one bus stop away). Staff are friendly and efficient. Free wifi and free bus/tram ticket during my stay. No complaints. The Christmas market in Basel is lovely. Highly recommend!

The hotel feels, initially, like a typical euro-centro sort of place. But as soon as you begin to interact with the staff, you realise that there is something more to it. They are exceptionally friendly, and willing to go out of their way to help out. The rooms are pretty standard, clean and well-appointed and you won't be disappointed on... More
