“Ideal accomodation with self catering facilities in a VERY expensive city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at the Adagio City Aparthotel in August to celebrate my birthday.
It was ideal as it was central (less than 10 mons walk) to the old town of Basel and all the historic attractions - Museums, galleries, shops etc.
Very close to the beautiful Rhine - look for the people swimming/floating along in the river during the summer months with their brightly coloured swim bags - and the riverfront cafes/bars.
Basel, like all of Switzerland is very expensive, so having a small kitchen complete with hotplate, microwave, dishwasher etc was very useful, allowing us to prepare basic snacks and breakfast.
Our room was very clean and tidy with a good sized ensuite bathroom and shower.
Wifi is available in reception. Our room was overlooking the street but as its away from the main tram lines, was thankfully quiet.
That said, the trams run from either end of Hammerstrasse so getting about is very easy. A free city tram/bus pass is issued to guests upon check in and this was a great asset.Lucerne and Bern are both a 1 hour train journey from Basel and well worth a visit.
We would definately go back again and stay at this accomodation.

So you have here a nice, clean 1 bed-room apartment with perfectly equipped kitchenette which is NOT on tram route and YET close to tram route. Coop store is just a block away where you can buy groceries in case if you wish to cook for your self OR just take 5min walk to find yourself in midst of market with multiple eating joints :) They also give you complimentary intracity travel pass for your entire duration of stay and hold it .......complimentary internet too!! Must say its Best deal in Basel

Room Tip: If you have a big family of more than 3+ (4 is till manageable) you would find the rooms crammed for...

We stayed in Basel for 2 nights. Switzerland is expensive, so value is hard to find. For a short stay though, it is very hard to beat the value these apartments have to offer. The one bedroom apartments are compact, but vor a family of 3 very comfortable, in a great location just a short stroll to the trams (which are free!) and a 5 minute tram ride into the centre of Basel.

Its great that the apartments have a kitchen, although unfortunately they do lack some utensils and the basic condiments if you wish to cook. Luckily we chose to dine most times in one of Basels many eateries!

Staff were friendly and informative and our bed fine. Not having stayed in one of the studio apartments, it seems though from other reviews that if you pay the extra for a one bedroom aprtment rather than a studio its well worth the extra!
