This was my second time at this property. I was surprised when they recognized that I had stayed here previously (2 yrs ago) and had all my info on file. This is a great location in Basel, right beside the train/tram station and close to the KunstMuseums. The hotel provides a free pass for the bus/tram for the length of your stay which is fantastic to get around the city. I wish every hotel would do this!
Likes: Breakfast is on the 8th floor with a great view of the city; location; free bus/tram pass; and very friendly and helpful staff (except for one older staff member serving the breakfast, ouch! she was a person with issues).
Dislikes: Not a lot of great restaurants in Basel, and the food tends to be very expensive; no irons in the facility (but they will send things out to get pressed if you ask at the desk).
