I stayed here for one night when I attended a conference in Basel. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and service, and the location was perfect for the events I was attending. Highly recommended at a reasonable cost.

I travel to Basel a lot and have been using this hotel on and off for years. It always served me well, having great amenities and a really nice atmosphere, that you often don't get with some of the more pricey hotels in the same neighbourhood. For a long time the decor was really out of date, but on my...

Not big room, but very cozy for one person! Minibar drunks are free. Price is also good. Transportation access is easy. Location is easy to find. Receptionists are very helpful and friendly. Love to return next time and recommend friends to come visit. It is a good choice for business travelers. 性價比相當高的商務型旅館。房間乾淨,minibar飲料免費,有兩瓶水、兩瓶可樂加一瓶啤酒。早餐餐廳環境優雅,早餐選項豐盛。櫃檯服務態度好。完全不像只有三星的商務旅館。

It is a big surprise to stay at this chic hotel. The location is absolutely very center in the residential area and just one tram stop from the Munster (old town). If you come from Basel SBB, then tram number 2 will stop at Wettsteinplatz and it is about 100 meter easy walk to the hotel. The lobby is bright,...

Typically European breakfast of mostly cold cuts and cheese. It would have been nice to have more hot items. The only hot dish were scrambled eggs and they were...

The location of the Hotel was very close to the city centre and a short leisurely walk bought us into the beautiful old city. The Hotel was very clean, organised and a pleasure to stay at.

Clean and modern. Smallish rooms - and we were upgraded.....but they were very comfy, fresh and had everything you need. Staff were very nice and friendly. Great area for breakfast, which you can use in the evening if you order a pizza from a restaurant a few doors down. Shower was modern and spotless. Downstairs lounge was warm and welcoming....

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.
