Found this hotel for a romantic weekend in Basel. Chose it because of its perfect location between the old town and the train station as well as for the look of the rooms. It turned out to be much more, a true experience. Rooms are nice and clean (they renovated last year). Small but well thought out. Free water fountains... More

I've been going to this hotel for some years now. It's in a convenient location when it comes to city centre. Recently they went through a renovation and it's very nice now. A very nice added perk that was not there before is the free water to drink. The only little problem I always have in there is the fact... More

We choose the hotel based upon reviews and the location. We walked, with our luggage, to the hotel from the train station. Very doable. The hotel is on a busy street but the room was quiet. Old town is only 500 meters away. The room was clean and good size. The staff is excellent and.knowledgeable on restaurants and local sights.... More

Nice hotel, good acces to inner city of Basel, and via free mobility ticket free and quick route to airport. Staff helpfull and friendly. Cheapest room (small and charming) ok, but with small double bed not ideal for two.
