This was our least favorite hotel on our month long trip to Europe. On the plus side, it was budget friendly, and the linens and bathroom were clean. The housekeeping staff was nice, as well. On the minus side, the check-in woman at Hotel Baslertor was not nice. I was able to ignore one particularly snide comment upon check-in, but when we had a small problem with the room, she was not only unhelpful, but unbelievably rude and condescending. I was so upset I cried in our room, and it unfortunately got our time in Switzerland off to a bad start. First impressions last a while. Fortunately, we met other people in town who were nice, and that helped a great deal. It was in the low 90s when we visited, and there is no air conditioning in the hotel, and the pull chain on the fan in our room was broken off at the base, so it was permanently set on low, which didn’t help much! We managed to tie dental floss to the chain so we could pull it and increase the speed to high. That, and keeping our door open, which allowed a breeze to blow through from the river (the window was open across the landing) made it bearable. No picnicking is allowed in the room (which was extremely tiny for our family of five), and the snacks in the machine on our landing were very expensive--5 Swiss francs for a soda, and 3 for a candy bar. Switzerland is expensive, but that is ridiculous. We stayed in a number of hotels and apartments during our stay in Europe, and we liked them all--except for this one! If you can afford something better, stay somewhere else.
