I've been staying here during one business trip. It's close to town in you know your way. The surrounding is nice but it's not so welcoming. You don't really get the feeling of a proper hotel. But in its own way it's charming. It's more of a school with dorm rooms.

I've used this hotel frequently in the past and always had a pleasurable experience. The staff are friendly and polite. The building is set in very pretty grounds and located close to several bus/tram stops. Rooms are clean, comfortable and include access to free wifi.

The hotel is excellently located, near enough to the heart of Basel without the usual trappings of a city centre location. Somewhat functional and clearly aimed at the business traveller, the hotel is undergoing a makeover, which is due to complete in early in 2015. Rooms were spacious and very well presented, along with being clean and comfortable. Good -... More

Stayed here on a business trip. The staff is supportive and was able to help me with my needs. The room itself was very spacious, with nice heating. The restaurant served good breakfast. There are two tram stations nearby and you can reach the city center in 5 mins. Overall a satisfying experience!

Stayed one night here before leaving early for the Zurich airport. Loved the design of our room, with its combination of simple design and warm natural wood. The staff was welcoming and even allowed us to see the room before confirming our reservation. We had to leave for the airport before breakfast was available, so they prepared lunches for us...

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times. It is not fancy but very comfortable and convenient to downtown Basel. (It is a short walk to one of the Gates going into the town.) The rooms are quite nice-sized and functional with good wifi. Everything is very clean. Breakfast is quite nice, with good variety, in a separate... More

Spent 3 days on business trip in Basel and the conference took place in this hotel, so I booked overnight stay. Hotel is nice, spacious rooms, clean bathroom, wifi was working perfectly. Breakfast was quite ok in terms of variety of cheese and bread, hit drinks, fresh fruits, eggs but not variety of hot meals. Business lunch and coffee breaks... More

Just had a week in Basel based at this hotel and I have only good things to say about the experience. Friendly staff, nicely decorated and spotless room and in a great location for exploring the city. The receptionist sold me a three day Basel card (for 35 CHF) and this allowed me to get half price into many museums... More

I spent here three nights for a business trip. Hotel was clean, beautiful and historic, rooms were spacious, bathroom spotless, cleaning every day. Breakfast with plenty of options with fresh garnish and fruits. Business lunch very good too (though I dont know if it is openly available all guests or just for special order). Only thing I missed was bar.... More

The clean and spartan approach to comfort here gave me a good night's sleep during a business trip. The Hasena bed and furnishings very comfortable. The decor contemporary and bright. The bath spacious enough and quite functional. The wifi was great. Appreciated the coffee room. The breakfast room is full of natural light.
