This was a business stay and the hotel was really excellent in terms of restaurant, seminar facilities, and location. The rooms are very basic but I am sure requests for extra bedding and pillows could have been entertained. There is a common lounge on the third floor that is perfect for getting a hot drink before bedtime. The wifi is... More

The hotel is reasonably priced, comfortable, 2 blocks from the city center, and part of an historic building (Herman Hesse lived here for 6 years as a child). The permaculture garden is wonderful, with 2 meadows; vegetable, flower, and herb plots; rows of berry bushes; and an orchard.

Good hotel accommodation in Basel's university quarter. The building is partly office space and partly hotel. Good clean rooms, well furnished. Close to city transport links (with a free city transport card for guests). Staff friendly and helpful. Would certainly use again.

the hotel has an excellent location to visit the city centre. an old building, quite well preserved. The rooms have nice wooden details. staff was very friendly... and they even give you free tickets to the public transports - but it's so close to the centre, we didn't really get a chance to use them! would stay again!

I booked this hotel mainly because of its location, very convenient for me at that moment. The only negative that i can say about it (although very remotely important for me) is the lack of a refrigerator in the room. Nevertheless, the reception can help you to store something in their fridge if you need. Now the positives: great location,... More

Nice large room on the third fllor, well-furnished and immaculate. Comfortable beds, large bathroom with very good shower and TV with lots of channels, including BBC, ITV, C4, C5 etc. Breakfast in the separate building was also fine, although the croissants were not up to much. The reception staff were very helpful, but almost so professional that they felt distant.... More

Having stayed there several times before I was completely by the greedy price politics. Due to high booking level they almost doubled the prices which ended at completely unacceptable 250 CH for a small room under the roof with almost no window and no chance to get fresh air in.....
