We stayed at this hotel, in July, combining it with a visit to the Basel Tattoo. Easy to find by public transport, it is quite an unusual hotel, sharing the building with other groups. This made it more interesting and it certainly has some history. Our room was spotlessly clean and well-equipped. (an umbrella and sun cream on offer..) yes,... More

And with the huge park outside you get skeeters if you leave the window open over night.. A fridge and a kettle in the room would have been nice. Wi-Fi was decent, but not outstanding. Ok for free. Good "German" breakfast.

The hotel is located centrally in Basel. Using the bus and tram stops just 200 m from the hotel you can easyly reach any district of Basel. The reception staf is very helpful for an question you have. The garden is like a park and you would enjoy it.

Not many people stay here. The "Hotel" if the top two floors of a mission/church/community center. They staff is friendly. The grounds are very nice. Quiet and peaceful gardens. The rooms are very nice. Breakfast is typical and good.Located just outside of where all the action is. I would recommend staying in a room away from the street. Slow WIFI... More

The Hotel is situated in a lovely big park where you can have breakfast outside. There are no facilities for dinner but there are a few restaurants on the road where the hotel is located. Impeccably clean, excellent service. We reserved the superior suite which is really romantic. This is a three star hotel but it could have been a... More

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...
