We booked this hotel because Basel is quite an expensive city and we were looking for an inexpensive option. Also, we regularly use the Accor chain of hotels. Unfortunately we came away a bit disappointed.
When we stayed there in September 2011 this aparthotel had clearly not transitioned to Accor. The customer service was poor and we witnessed at least two arguments between hotel staff and guests while waiting to check in or waiting in line at reception to inquire about services.
In addition, we found the hotel to be at least dingy and bordering on unclean - it was not very appealing. Final note on the negatives, which gives rise to the title. That establishment is quite some distance from downtown Basel and was not easy to locate upon our arrival at the train station.
If you've stuck with me so far, here are the positives to the hotel and bearing this in mind you may choose to stay here: access is provided by a tram line that is less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. It is also quite close to the major discount airport which makes a cab to the airport a breeze.
Finally, the rooms had nice kitchenette facilities and were reasonably well furnished, if dingy. It is possible that as Accor brings this hotel to standard it will improve, so buyer beware.
