We stayed at the hotel while visiting the Christmas markets. Our room was spacious, with a coffee machine as well as tea making facilities (and a plate of delicious chocolate). We ate in the restaurant one evening and found it tasty if a little pricey. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was excellent, as... More

We had a room for one night as part of a package from Basel Tourism for the Chisrtmas market. I called the hotel in advance to ask if we needed to reserve space in the garage, as I anticipated the Christmas market would fill up most of the public car parks in the Center. The man I spoke to at... More

Great rooms and good service. Very nice breakfast buffet, even though it is pricy at 31 CHF. If you have time to enjoy a long breakfast this is the right place to spoil yourself. The hotel also offers "drop in" for breakfast.

Let me start by saying that I would return to this hotel. The location is good and very easy to travel by tram (and the hotel gives you free passes!). The rooms are small, even for standard European rooms. And the walls are thin and hallway noisy, but I travel with my sound machine so I had no problems sleeping.... More

Rooms are not very big, especially the bathroom is very compact and the temperature in the room is pretty cold. The hotel has also a... More

Overall good location as one can walk from Basel Station to the hotel, overall standard room size is small. The best part about the hotel is within walking distance are two tram stations and all of good Swiss hotels provide tram passes for the duration of the stay.
