This is a small hotel with a wonderful breakfast. We had a three bed room that was quiet facing the rear. Rooms are soundproofed. Rooms are not fancy, but functional. You can surf the Internet using the television. Internet is very fast. This hotel offers jobs for handicapped people. Rates are low. Hotel has good access to the city and... More

Stayed here for one night in the single room. The room is very small but very contemporary and is well designed. I stayed here during the ART Basel season so actually ended up paying more than what is normally advertised as it was a high season in Basel. The buffet breakfast had a lot of choice and was quite good.... More

The main problem of this hotel is that you can't open windows in your room, so it might happen that rooms are too warm / stuffy and unfortunatelly with a sensation of fustiness when you get in. Beds are also too hard, in my opinion.

Simple city hotel but perfect! very modern, quiet and clean rooms. Beds are a little bit small but ok. Breakfast is delicious. Very nice staff. Good location for visiting Baselworld (buses and tram are very close by)

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The room was huge and the en suite almost as big as most hotel rooms. Very high tech with electric blinds etc. Wooden floors and very modern decor so does feel a bit cold but I liked it. All staff very friendly and breakfast was very good

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every aspect of the hotel. The breakfast was fantastic - healthy, tasty and full of variety. All the staff we came into contact with were pleasant and efficient. We were offered cups of tea by the receptionist two nights running on our return to the hotel. The rooms are large, clean and uncluttered.... More

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.
