Great location just off motorway but surprisingly quiet once inside. Rooms spacious and scrupulously clean, good breakfast. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Easy transport via tram into the centre from just outside the hotel. Good secure car parking available on site, with direct secure access to the hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again.

We stayed here for one night as we were travelling through Switzerland. The hotel is just off the motorway (but you can't hear it). Parking is very good in a closed, secure garage. Free public transport pass for your stay is great too. Free cake when we got back in from being out in the evening. The best part of... More

Dear MalcolmEBoo Thank you for your feedback. Great that you enjoyed it. We are evaluating new mattresses – even mattresses filled with air. With these ones every guest can determine the hardness of the mattress itself. The perfect mattress for every guest… :) With best regards, your DASBREITETEAM More

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. It is a modern, spacious place with great staff. The rooms are good, the breakfast too and the location is great for those heading to St Jakob-Park for the football. Just a few bus stops from the stadium, it is also only a few tram stops from the city... More

Dear sportingfruit Thanks for your feedback. Tip: Visit us again at the Swiss Indoors (tennis) in November. With our free public transport Ticket you reach the “Joggeli” stadion (St. Jakob) within 10 minutes by bus. Kindly, your DASBREITETEAM More

Note to the wise: bring your own food. Bring your own entertainment. Free public transport is great but all the Basel hotels offer this. To call this basic is to be extravagant. When I asked about food I was told there was water in the room. If there's nowhere else - and you have to be in Basel - it... More

Happy to see that the hotel offers you a card valid for all public transport. Fast internet anf outstandingly good breakfast. A perfect business hotel and suited for younger people as well. The rooms were nicely designed but would be too hot to sleep in the summer.

We showed up without a booking and we're happily accommodated by the friendly staff member at reception. Free secure parking and an excellent breakfast are included in the room price. It's easy to get to the centre of town on the tram with the free ticket provided by the hotel. The rooms are positively spartan, but clean, and the bed... More

I was travelling from Greece to Belgium at the end of August, by car with my 10 year old daughter and we stayed there for 1 night, as it was next to the border and the highway. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance of the hotel, especially at the time we arrived, which was late at night.... More

The staff are super friendly and helpful here. I was worried about noise from the nearby busy road, but the room was almost silent. Everything is constructed to very high standard and worked very well. The room was probably the most spacious I have experienced in Switzerland. Breakfast is truly wonderful and the fruit bread is exceptional. The location is... More

This is a comfortable and functional hotel. It is a little unusual, décor is modern and minimalist. the staff are really excellent and very helpful. Breakfast is excellent. My room was very pleasant and comfortable and not very small by Basel standards. It is a little away from the main centre. There is wired internet access in the bedrooms with... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week, most of which was spent attending a conference. The room was comfortable--neither large nor small, with shelves (perhaps not quite enough) for clothing and stuff, a desk, a couple of chairs, and a private bathroom. I'm a light sleeper, so I really appreciated how quiet it was. There was a safe in... More
