The b&b building itself and the facilities are very old. There is practically no insulation. The room is small. On the other hand, the landlady and the staff are extremely nice and helpful. They make their best to keep the rooms as clean as possible. The location is quite okay for a budget ('budget' for Basel standards) hotel. I would... More

We've been traveling by car and didn't book anything particular in Basel, so asking 2-3 hotels in a city for the price was a real shock. Then I asked my friend to search for something not so fancy in internet, so we came to Casa La Luz. Hotel team was very friendly, the room was big, internet fast and shower... More

They charged me an extra 3% for paying by credit card, which I was annoyed with at the time but didn't have a choice. Yet, that doesn't seem to have guaranteed a safe transaction, less than I week later there is CHF fraud on my UK credit card. Which means a credit card cancelled right before Easter - what a...

Hotel is situated a little way out of the city centre however this is not an issue as the nearest tram stop is only a 5 minute walk away. Hotel is part of the city travel scheme which means you a given a pass (at no extra cost) for free tram travel . Breakfast was typical continental style but there... More

Glad that we found this hotel while our return journey back to India, was delayed by ASH clouds. We were three and looking for a affordable one. We were able to book the room online, easily connected to train station by tram. As we checked in, we found it more like a house than a hotel. Rooms were not that... More

The check in was quick and easy, and while not in the center of town the B&B is close to 2 major tramlines - the 3 to the city center and the 1 to the train station. Our main complaint was that, about 10 minutes after getting into bed, our bed broke. It freaked my wife out so much she... More

The staff and owner are lovely people--and the rooms with toilets are quite nice. The rooms are very roomy for central Basel hotels (my third trip). It is very close to the University and a nice 15 minute walk to the town center. However, be sure to ask for a room with a toilet and shower in the room, since... More
