“A comfortable hotel to visit Basel...if you have a car.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

The photo were misleading to us: the building is nice but is not in the countryside.
We arrived by car and the entrance is not as obvius as you would expect for a 4-star hotel. The nearby garage has not a sheltered connection to the hotel building...and if it rains it's not very comfortable.
At the reception there was a kind girl, but only from 8 to 20...not in line with a 4-star hotel.
The room was clean, tidy, quiet but simply furnished, anyway enough for our 1-night accomodation.
Breakfast is just enough assorted, but food was of good quality.
For 155 chf, it's worth it (booking.com 35% discount offer).

The restaurant inside the castle is a perfect place for a special celebration, a truly unique and elegant environment. The atmosphere is old fashion, distinctive and sophisticated. The menu is exquisite and the food is presented to perfection. If I have to choose only one word to describe this restaurant, that would be “unforgettable”.

We did not stay at the hotel ourselves, as we live nearby part of the time, but had friends visiting who stayed there, and thus we also got to see their room. The hotel is in an older period building which was totally renovated a few years ago and now boasts modern and utilitarian hotel rooms that looked perfectly clean and tidy. We had dinner at the restaurant then – as we had had before – and where once more intrigued by the atmosphere if the genuine old castle with the feet-thick walls and the beautifully furnished and stylishly decorated rooms you can dine in. You can’t beat this place for old-time atmosphere. Yes, it’s really expensive, but the food is excellent.
Inadvertently the hotel and restaurant and situation right next to a streetcar line which will take you right into downtown Basel in about ten minutes.

This newly opened (08 I think) hotel alongside a highly regarded restaurant hit all the right buttons: easy car access and parking, but a simple 10 minute tram ride into the centre of this fascinating city; well-designed, minimalist rooms; and a good rate (CHF 180 on a Friday). And the restaurant, whilst not cheap, is indeed excellent.

A spacious, clean and posh room, 5 min. travel to city center, no parking problems, kind people...what else do you expect from a hotel? I had a wonderful stay here: it is located in a park (very quiet), rooms are large and well furnished, I did not try the restaurant (I would have like to..but it is closed on monday, remember!), and even if you have not a car, there is a tram stop just outside the hotel, very useful (quite difficult to park in Basel, you can leave your car here and take the tram though). Paid CHF 180 with bookings, 2 people breakfast incl., notice that reception is closed after 20, and you should let them know if you are going to arrive after 6PM.
