We stayed for one night in the Hotel Alfa and it was good. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel is facing a busy street, so it was a bit noisy. The breakfast was reasonable, coffee was good and the staff friendly.

Stayed there for the basel tattoo in july. Besides to real hot room( a fan would have heloed) and a somehat noisy air extractor in the bathroom everything was just fine. Easy parking, good breakfast, helpful staff and a public transportation pass included in the package. All in all a good deal.

Comfortable modern room with above average space. We asked for an extra bed for our son which was provided. Nice TV and coffee machine provided. Quiet room when windows closed despite overlooking tramlines.Lovely breakfast and close to city and Bahnhof. Tram stop right outside which was convenient and free travel card was a bonus..

Good value for money, clean and very friendly staff. Simple, clean rooms, somewhat dated but with a nice coffee maker. Sufficient though nothing special, so good for passing through on the way elsewhere. Location is ok, parking for free. Tramlines right in front.

We had a night stop in this hotel and I was impressed with the service, size of the twin room and the complementary products. We also received free tram passes to cover out stay and a very enjoyable breakfast.

I was one of the unfortunate people to stay in this hotel from the group booking mentioned below this review.
