I spent three nights here, needing to stay in Basel in order to take part in a conference in the middle of Basel. As someone has already observed in a review, it is like a small guesthouse in a village; it is unpretentious and your expectations should not be too high. Meals are quite basic but nothing to complain about, and it is cheaper than hotels in the city.
Best feature is that the hotel is very well connected; the trams stop outside the hotel, they take you straight into the Messeplatz. And five minutes' walk behind the hotel is the railway station, from which two trains per hour will take you first to the Deutsche bahnhof and thence, without changing train, to the Swiss (SBB) railway station.
Second best feature is that the Beyerle art gallery is within walking distance; they have a Wednesday evening opening which allows you to see the excellent 20th century art collection after a day's work with acrylate monomers (or whatever it is for you).
