We stayed in this hotel in December and were pleasantly surprised! It is a very nice hotel in a residential neighborhood, but within easy walking distance to the downtown and old town areas. The room was very large and quiet and simply furnished, but very functional. The bathroom was large and very clean. The receptionists were very pleasant, helpful, and... More

The history of this place as a monastery is reflected in the modern day hotel. Simple, clean , without fripperies or luxury is the way it works. It is comfortable and friendly, with the simple food being of good quality. I was here on business and had a good nights sleep then used several of the meeting rooms which were... More

I was here during the long weekend of November 1st. The hotel is situated in an "old" mission house, about 10 walking minutes from the historical centre. Room 450 was not too big, but neither small. It has only one small window which is to the street side. It is a bit difficult to sleep with this window closed as... More

Booked into the Bildungszentrum 21 as only hotel available in Basel for that night. I have to say that the cost was very reasonable, CHF250 for a 'suite', and the reception staff delightfully friendly. However, by hotel standards this was pretty poor, very 1980s. Virtually no food or drink on offer, tiny, tiny beds, minimal bathroom facilities and the whole... More

When I read the good reviews, I had high expectations. But this place does not hold up. No restaurant, no bar, no minibar. The beds were of poor quality (only single beds). Rooms are very spacious indeed, and we could comfortably be in one room ( 2 adults, 2 small kids). The bathroom was quite bizarre, as it's actually fitted... More

This hotel is really very good, stayed there for almost a week due to business I was attending, the price is not low, but I guess all the hotels in Switzerland are expensive as is anything else...don't expect a lot of room, I stayed in a single room and got a single bed, not even queen, that was actually pretty...

The first 3 floors are offices conference Centre etc with the top 3 floors turned into hotel rooms. I stayed in Room 550 and... More

This is a hotel and conference center in a residential and fairly quiet part of Basel, within walking distance of the quaint old town and river Rhein. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and nothing seems to be too much for them. The rooms are comfortable, and the bathrooms practical. However, note that only body wash/soap is provided so if... More
