My husband and I stayed three nights in this small but very professional hotel, the service from the staff was always helpful an friendly while the room was of a good size, well appointed with quality fixtures and a very comfortable bed; also, great shower with plenty of hot water. Good location, 5 min tram ride to central or an easy 15 min walk, plus with the free tram and bus tickets, couldn't be easier. Only thing missing was the coffe and tea making facilities in the room, apart from that it is an excellent hotel. Great wifi.

Room Tip: Top floor at the rear.

We stayed here two nights after flying into Basel airport on the way to Lucerne. It has a great central location where you can get anywhere on the suburb tram and bus network. It's about one minute walk from the banks of the Rhine. The rooms are a euro minimal style, no fuss, clean and smart. We didn't bother with breakfast in the hotel because within a couple of minutes there is a good handful of cafés. 

Tip: It's easy to get here from the airport by bus - bus travel from the airport is included as part of the 'mobility card' that hotel guests get, you get the card from the hotel that gives you free travel around Basel, on the way from the airport just have a printout of your hotel reservation to cover you until you pick your card up.

This hotel is very conveniently located for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, the river, and transport. It has (virtually) all the bases covered. The staff were delightful and very helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate. Only one thing 'missing', the lack of coffee and tea making facilities in the room. I don't always want, or have time for, breakfast and I just prefer to start my day with a coffee while I am getting ready. This is a hotel that wont let you down.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely and modern, in a great location right near Les Trois Rois but at a fraction of the cost. We had a luxury room (one up from the basic level) and this was really nice with a big comfy bed, good tv, beautiful bathroom / rain shower. Asked for a quiet room and got a room facing the back on the top floor (6th) - it was very quiet with a view across the rooftops. Also asked for iron / ironing board in the room and this was ready when we arrived. No tea/coffee in the room so take a travel kettle if you want this. There is a mini-bar in the room though. Breakfast was good too - liked the layout of the restaurant. Simple selection of continental breakfast items but all very fresh and tasty - especially the mini-croissants. Staff very helpful too. Would stay here again as it is in a great location and had everything we needed.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you need it. Better to pick a luxury or executive room if you can as they ar...

Small but well-designed room, very helpful staff. Breakfast could be better - simple but no hot food (even no simple smashed eggs) - various ham, cheese, bread, yogurt and fruit.

Location is very good - sightseeing and main restraints just on the next street.
