Making a booking online for this hotel during the week of Basel World turned out to be a disaster. The price was so high we thought it was for the entire week - but it turned out it was per day. We cancelled the booking 10 minutes later when realizing that we had done a huge mistake. Our fault of... More

When you are travelling in Switzerland you have to be with the mined set that everything is expensive (compared to Northamerican standards). This hotel though is really not offering much for the prices they charge (300+ CAD $ per night). I was booked in a "superior" room. When I heard that I am on the ground (street level) floor I...

I went there 2 times. The first time I got a superior room and the room was quite small, with a small tv, with a very bad internet and expensive. The second time I got a standard room and it was double the first one, had a huge flat TV with more channels of the first one and a wonderful... More

17 euro is a lot when you only want a cup of coffee and a bagel, even in Eu. Other than that, a VG hotel. Staff was very friendly and gave us a fan. Our room in the back of the hotel wasn't AC. Very nice restraunts when you turn right out of the hotel. As mentioned by other reviewers,... More

Only spent two nights here as a stop over at the start of our holiday. The hotel is basic and is fine for a few nights stay as it is a little out of the way of the main area. The tram stops less than 5 mins walk away and will take you into the main part of town /... More

I was lucky enough to be paying apx £65 per night but on some occasions I have seen it as much as 200 per night for a single room. It was clean, if a bit dusty, the bed was comfortable and the room had air conditioning and a mini fridge. On the downside the Internet connection was slow, I was... More

This has always been the hotel of choice for Art Basel every June. This year I only spent 2 nights here as we had an apartment for the other nights. The room I had this year (114) was larger than before we not so much wasted space like my previous rooms had. Always very clean and everything works perfectly. The... More

One of those hôtels you might not find easy unless you want to go to one of the trade shows very nearby. However, it is worthwile and correctly priced outside the faire dates. It s a short and convenient tram ride from the Basel Train Station (Swiss) or almost walking distance from the German Train Station (Badischer Bahnhof). Choose the... More
