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

We chose this hotel as our first stopover on our journey from Calais to Italy as it required no detour at all from our route on the A3 through Basle and we were attracted by its advertised ethos - providing employment to people with disability pensions, helping their integration into society. We certainly were not disappointed. Everything from our welcome... More

This was an unusual hotel. Felt like a deluxe youth hostel. I felt it was over rated on trip advisor at the time, once I had stayed there. It had an isolating atmosphere. Room was a little claustrophobic, though had all the basics well provided for. Management were excellent with a problem I had of accessing Ethernet from the room.... More

Excellent and dedicated staff. Very good breakfast. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The only reason I'd put the rating the to 4.5 rather than 5 is because wifi is unavailable in the rooms. It can only be accessed from the lobby area. Also, there is no refrigerator in the room. Free pass to public transportation is a definite asset.... More
