A good bet to stay in Basel, surely one of the best in it's price range - $250 minimum and double that at peek times...no, nothing's cheap in Switzerland. As others have stated - excellent location, great breakfast buffet, and nice staff. Rooms are comfortable with large flat screen tv with lots of channels, well stocked bathroom. The beds could use more comfortable and larger pillows - the one's offered are tiny, the mattress is fine. The rooms should offer bathrobes - this hotel is rated as a four star, but in the US, it'd be a 3 star as there is no fitness room, or room service. For those who want to exercise, visitors can use the Hilton's fine gym across the street for 11 swiss franks a day. Stay away from the "single" rooms as they are tiny, ask for at least a comfort level for best rooms.
