Its very good hotel with excellent conference facilities and near Basel railway station as well as river area in Basle. It's probably tallest hotel in Basle city and with good food options available. It's worth staying during Basle visit.

Stayed two nights while on a business trip. Rooms were small but had everything you need. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was good though expensive. The sky lounge was nice with a great view. Only complaint the bed was quite firm.
