So. What's wrong with this actual Hotel? Nothing! BUT, read on... As I started off, the actual Hotel is great. It is very clean, well laid out, smart and boasts the friendliest reception staff in the world. If Carlsberg did receptionists...I couldn't write this review without recommending the ladies on reception. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They will... More

Simple room: single bed, desk, armoire. Nice breakfast room, and reasonable breakfast included. Convenient to the No. 1 and No. 2 trams on Wettsteinstrasse that go to the train station. Also easy walk to the Basel Conference Centre.

This hotel is well situated in Basel for public transport. In Switzerland you get free transport to help you on your way? Breakfast is good here. No evening meals available? Nice place round the corner though called the brauhouse. Only downside here is the beds. Why oh why do you have single beds.

This hotel is Swiss, so as expected it is spotless. However it is very basic. Rooms are small and the bed, cot like. TV really limited. The wi-fi is dreadful, and if you want to recharge your phone, as I guess many folks would, you will search for plug points in vain. I eventually found some located behind the bed.... More

Convenient place in central Basel. Easy to get to from the freeway, and general location is good. Room clean, but small. Breakfast is fine, but nothing to write home about. Staff friendly. Would stay again if I needed a decent cheap option for one night.

This hotel is a real mixed bag for me. It is located in the "Little Basel" area of Basel, which is across the river from the old town area of Basel. The hotel is really small - maybe 20 rooms total. Interestingly there is a sister hotel right next door and it seems that they share some ammenities. Checkin was... More

Like other reviewers I think this should be graded as a 3 star hotel. Positive points: staff very friendly, helpful and multilingual; 3 min walk to tram although can walk to city centre; 5 min walk to the Rhine and to Roche campus; very clean; breakfast buffet small but kept topped up and served on pleasant conservatory. Negative points: limited... More

This is a perfect combination of family environment with good location and service. This is always my first choice in my business travels to Basel.

Hotel situated very close to the Rhine river (with tiny, narrow beach where you can find lots of locals) and Wettstein Platz from where you can easily get to the close centre of Basel by tram (they go every few minutes). Considering hotel standards I stayed in quite large room (about 18-20 sqm), but unfortunately facing busy street. During the... More

The hotel is in a convenient location, relatively close to the city centre and train station either by foot or tram. The hotel itself is of an average standard (3 star, certainly not 4 star) and offers efficient service and average facilities. Quite expensive for what it offers.
