Stayed here for 2 nights with family while visiting for a memorial service in Hochwald. The hotel,was clean and someone said it had recently been refurbished. It was perfectly located for basle SBB station. Literally a ten minute walk (although there is a tram that stops right outside if you are not able to walk ( no. 2 from the station)
You can easily walk to the centre of Basle from this hotel in about 15 minutes where you will find the shops, bars and restaurants. ( or again you can catch tram 16 from right outside). There are trams everywhere and it's an amazing transport system. We were given the mobility card from the hotel on arrival which allows you travel for free on the trams and buses etc for length of yr stay. Brilliant! we even used it to get from the airport and back again. So quick and efficient. Taxis are very very expensive so avoid unless you have to. we had to use a taxi for last part of our journey to Hochwald and it was literally a few miles up a mountain. It was almost 40 CHF and the return was the same! So 80CHF for a 6 mile journey.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel although relatives did and said it was nice. Although to be honest no one checked you had paid for this and you could just walk in and grab a coffee! There is a little snack bar available for beer and coffees etc all day which was nice
In summary a simple hotel, clean, modern and quite sufficient for somewhere to lay yr head if that's all,you need. We would use this hotel again if we ever had the need to. Only gripe was the built in hair dryer which wasn't great and plug points not next to the only mirror in the room!
