Very nice business hotel: clean and well decorated rooms, very comfy beds, great service and central location. Would have rated 5/5 but the food options are limited which could be improved but the breakfast was nice - be nice to have some more evening options.

The staff on reception and in the breakfast area were very helpful and professional - nothing was a problem for them, and they always responded to our questions with a smile and very useful information. It seems that...

This was mine and my partners first trip to Basel and we couldn't have chose a better hotel! Our room was lovely and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The free passes for the trams/buses is a brilliant idea it saved us so much money. Only downside was our room got very warm even though we'd gone out and...

Good quiet location and easily accessible for the kunstmuseum and the Beyeler foundation. Free travel pass is brilliant and saves time working out how the travel system works. Friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast.

Hotel & room was clean, staff was friendly and helpful BUT the room was very hot - no air conditioning. Also the rooms on the top floor, while they may be a little bigger, they have a slanted roof which is very uncomfortable for tall people (over 1.7 meters). Also the top floor rooms only have windows in the roof...

This Hotel is partially renewed. Rooms are really tiny but clean. It would be much better to have cupboards and/or shelves as it is not even possible to fully open a suitcase except on the floor. Very narrow desk... Bed is OK and comfortable. No cooling system so very warm during summer, even garden side but then you can keep...
