As others have said, clean. Quiet and room size acceptable. Small bathroom, but I have seen worse. They even give you a bottle of water and some jelly beans in the room. No shampoo or conditioner, but that is not unusual in this type of business hotel. Some reviewers have commented on the breakfast buffet; please note that it is... More

Free parking Free wifi Good location: trams to everywhere, pub serving food less than a minute walk away, bank, bookies next door, McDonald's (short drive). It also has a Chinese restaurant attached to it... More

Hotel was clean and quiet, decor was a bit dated but adequate for a base. Switzerland is just a 5min walk over the hill where a tram will take you into Basel. Plenty of public transport around. Check in was quick, no maps or anything given though, have to google everything. Wifi was free and fairly quick.

Clean rooms. Pleasant staff. But... If you are not there within minutes of breakfast starting all the good stuff is gone and you will be... More

You walk about 8 to 10 minutes to the S-Station, which goes to Switzerland or to the Black Forest (Zell im Wiesental) You can use the Swiss Tram as well (about 3 Minutes form the Hotel).

A pretty small room and miserly pillow on a thin (but fairly comfortable) mattress made the JFM an average place to stay, but it was clean and well placed within walking distance of the Swiss border and therefore a lot cheaper than staying in Switzerland. Wouldn't have a problem staying there again...

The friendly staff made check-in smooth and easy. Room and bathroom spotless clean. The room was average size by European standards, minimally decorated, utilitarian in design. Not fancy at all but felt cared for and kept up well. Room view was of the busy courtyard of the apartment building next door. Typical hard bed for the region, desk, wall mounted... More

This is a nice hotel in Lorrach. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the beds are comfortable. Overall, the rooms are fairly basic on amenities but it's definitely where I will stay the next time I am in Lorrach. The staff were fluent in English, French, and German and extremely helpful. The internet was spotty -- great when we checked... More

My wife and I and our daughter stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The reception was very helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the decor enchanting. The rooms were fine. Easy access to Basel was a bonus.
