I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I was in town for a work function, meeting at Swiss Airlines corporate office just up the road. I did not have the opportunity to fly into Basel, but opted to take the train from Zurich instead which I highly recommend!
As for the hotel, the rooms are spacious, beds extremely comfortable, showers amazing (massive water pressure) and free wifi! I did pop over to the casino with my free slot voucher which went away in a blink.
They also offer a good variety for breakfast. This is my first visit to Switzerland and wasn't fully prepared on pricing. A basic hamburger and fries is a bit steep at 22CHF, even by European standards that I've seen so far.
The rooms are warm, be prepared to keep your window open. I had the thermostat down as low as it would go without much luck. I'm not sure what the settings represent though, the sign on the wall states it's neither Celsius or Fahrenheit.
Getting around town is very simple. The #50 bus picks up right in front of the hotel and will take you to the airport or the train station where all the action is. Pick a tram or bus and explore the city at random. I walked to the Rhine on my first day and enjoyed the local flavor. Everyone was very friendly.
