The 1890s could be a strict era for children, and this is when a certain missionary family child, the future writer and Nobel laureate, Hermann Hesse, roamed our park. We imagine it was prohibited for young children to snack on the grapes and berries in the park at the time. But it seems equally likely that young Hermann ignored the restrictions. He already had a well-earned reputation as a rebel. So, if during autumn in our park a red-cheeked apple smiles at you, give in to its innocent seduction, just as Hermann would! And during the rest of the year we will lead you into further modest temptations because we are enthusiastic about our park and want to share this with all our guests. During the warm seasons we invite the ice cream man into our park, and when it is cold the roast chestnut vendor, so you can indulge in these little treats too. And if, as has happened with many other guests, attending one of our events gives you food or refreshment ideas for your next reception or barbecue, please come see us. In our park, a thousand and one such dreams can come true. PS: Throughout our park, no chemical insecticides or herbicides are used. Instead, all the fruit is grown using only certified organic cultivation methods and substances. And if you rest for a while on one of our cosy park benches, you will share your time with many birds and butterflies.

Spacious minimalistic and modern rooms kept exceptionally clean with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Minutes walk from the centre of town and activities or a bus number 30 from Basel SBB (10 minutes) and situated in a quiet suburban location. Appears to be mainly used for

When we first arrived at this hotel we were a bit sceptical. Yes it is old, but it is. The rooms are a good size and quirky. The location of this hotel is great. It is a minute walk to the tram that will take you into town which is 3 stops away. This hotel does not have air

Dear smichell2 Thank you for your review and the time you spent on it. We are glad to hear you liked the location of our hotel and are sorry for the occured situation. You have received an email from our Head of Seminar and Reception who replied to your email to explain the situation once again. We do understand that you were not satisfied to not receive an upgrade or a complimentary breakfast and are surprised and sorry that you were informed that this is a standard offer/procedure in all hotels. For us it is not a standard procedure, it might be possible if you as a travel agent when travelling with a larger group or if your agency sends an inquiry, both options with a request in advance. We deeply appologize for the way you were treated from our colleague at the reception, this is definetely everything else than a decent way to inform and solve inquiries from guests and will be discussed internally to avoid incidents as yours in future. Best wishes from the hotel bildungszentrum 21

After an initial hiccup of finding that there was no AC in many rooms (hot and humid day on arrival), we were moved to an AC room and everything was amazing. Manager Roman was very supportive, room lovely, gardens fabulous, food very good. Loved it

Location is really good just 5 minutes walk from the old town gate at Spalentor and a bus 30 from the SBB station. It’s set away from the road and is therefore very quiet. We chose a superior room which was up on the fifth floor - note that lifts only go to the 4th floor and

Dear TATraveller Thank you so much for your rating and for sharing the experience you have made with us on tripadvisor.com. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that you liked your room and our breakfast buffet. You are right we are a hotel with 73 rooms and 18 conference rooms, with offices of the mission21 in the same heritage-listed building in the largest privat park in Basel - so definetely different =). The heritage listed building is the reason why we are not able to install air-conditions in all our rooms. As the rooms in the roof top are the "hottest" rooms in the building, we try to cool them down with mobile units. We hope to welcome you as our guests again soon. Sunny greetings from the hotel bildungszentrum 21

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mother on a short city break to Basel. Basel itself is a charming, tranquil and beautiful city and well worth a visit. We found staying at the Bildungszentrum to be a great experience in all ways. Our room, superior double, was on the 3rd

Dear lilith882002 The Merian Hotel is about 15 to 20 minutes (walking aswell as public transport distance) from our hotel. The big fireworks will take place at the rhein-river near to "Mittlere Brücke". We would be happy to welcome you as our guests. Sunny greetings from the hotel bildungszentrum 21

"Very few rooms appeared to face the road and the hotel is set back anyway but if you want to be certain just ask for a garden facing room."
"Superior doubles worth the money for the extra space"
"I just recommend a place in general."
"Avoid rooms under the roof: no air conditioner and you can not open the window. Too hot to sleep well in the Summer."
"Facing the garden would be best, not the street."
