“If you have to fly next day its o.k.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

As I had to fly next early morning from the french side of the airport. There is not much choise. Nearest to the airport is only a Formula1 and this hotel.

Its a run down hotel. Dark corridors with the ceiling lights partially not working (2nd floor).Also in the room, some switches where not working. The elevator really needs servicing.
In the room the small window had no noise isolation and the traffic noise was disturbing.

Its not a hotel you want to stay if you have a choice.

Two positive things though: friendly staff and good food.

And if you need internet, its free but don't try their business corner. I guess the whole equipment is about 15 years old, and what do you do with a printer without paper?

It's only a two star hotel. On paper.
Actually it is a modern, clean, bright place with very friendly people.
A really helpful receptionist, a functionally furnished room with a good bed.
A bar with really good beer and a more than friendly bartender who will give you a large cup for your tea-maker in the room (unusual for France) upon request.
And potentially a parking-money-saving shuttle service to the airport (BSL).
This is a good place to stay if you take an early morning flight from Basel.
(Hotel parking lot to BSL P5 parking takes 3 minutes by car.)

Booked this hotel for my father who is in a wheelchair. The most important item for any hotel advertising and catering to disabled travellers is not just the width of the doors. It is the wheel in shower...which this hotel does NOT have and a toilet that is set higher with handles. This is not adequate for wheelchair travellers.

There is not a lot to say about this hotel apart from the following; Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, shuttle to the airport. Nice onsite restaurant and friendly staff.

If you want an alternative breakfast, you can stroll up to one of the local bakeries.

I stayed here in May 2012 to be close to the airport for an early morning flight from the Basel Airport. Check-in was friendly and very easy. They even understood my heavily accented French without any problems. The single room I had was small, but the bed was very comfortable and the hotel was only a ten minute free shuttle ride away from the airport. There was a small restaurant to the left of the lobby that appeared to be popular with locals, which is usually a good sign of good food. Other than that restaurant, however, there didn't seem to be much within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel didn't have any ammenities such as a pool or spa, but I wouldn't have used them anyhow due to my short stay.

If I ever have an early flight out of Basel again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

Stayed at this Hotel over night on route to Tuscany on a coach trip. Our room was in the loft conversion, very clean if a litle basic. Lovely bathroom. Our breakfast very was in the holiday price. It was very school canteen like. One long table for 20 people. 1 croissant & a french stick you slice yourself & tea/coffee. Friendly staff & in a nice residential area.

Nice place for a transit stay. Attentive staff and great service orientation. Rooms are ok, with basic necessities. Wifi is good, but quite feeble at top floors. Fair restaurants with decent meals - difficult for vegans!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the lift and preferably on the 1st or 2nd floor for better wifi
