There's very little to fault with this hotel. The rooms are slightly smaller than the average hotel and they don't have a 24 hour reception desk. It's also noisy from 6/7am. But it's affordable, clean and the staff are friendly. It's also in a decent location, made slightly better by the lack of hotels in Basel in general. It's right... More

Location was ideal for the convention Centre (2 minute walk). The hotel is very basic, no air conditioning but clean. Continental breakfast was good. I'd recommend a room away from the Main Street, as the tram and late-night revellers were very loud.

Great location, close to lots of tram stops and a 15 minute walk to the town centre. Friendly staff who were very accomodating in holding our luggage for us until check-in. Lovely clean and light rooms, breakfast fresh and good selection of Teas and Coffee. Good hotel in a lovely city with nice staff

Stayed for 2 nights while in the city for Europa Cup final. Slightly inflated price because of that but good value in comparison to other hotels. Location was good with a couple of bars and restaurants nearby. Tram stop across the road to get into the centre on the other side of town (6-7 mins). Easy access to station via... More

The single room was spacious, the staff was super helpful and nice, breakfast was fine, Location is quite central, 3 stations from the heart of Basel, and you also get free transport card for all your stay. Would surely comeback to this Hotel!

Rooms are not big but rather cozy. Breakfast is tasty but not various. There are a lot of cafes near the hotel. Nice place to stay for a couple of nights. Staff is very friendly and supportive. Noise isolation is very poor, so you can hear how phone vibrates in next room
