    This is a nice, sensibly priced hotel in the middle of Basel. Everything is easily accessible from here, particularly the sbb station across the road. Early morning breakfast is available if you need to catch an early train.

    Fabulous

    The overall services are good. The staff at the reception counter is very helpful and courteous. The food for breakfast is simple but good. However, I trusted them so much that I did not check their bill when I settled it by cash. When I checked the bill after my arrival at Basel Airport, I found that I was overcharged by CHF96.00. It was part of my own fault. I called them at the airport. They agreed the over charge and would refund it to me.

    We stayed for only 1 night, but we enjoyed our stay so much. Staffs are professional, very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and neat. We were amazed by shower room and air-conditioning system which did not make any noise and maintain comfortable temperature to sleep. And most of all, we loved the breakfast. it was really really satisfying. full of everything. I would love to stay in this hotel next time, too.

    Comfortable room, excellent breakfast and helpful staff I liked the freely available access to soft drinks and ice

    I chose the hotel for it's location, but the room I had on the front was a bit noisy

    Very good

    The location is no compare, very very near to the city tran station, just few steps away not more then 3 minutes walking. just in front of the hotel, many tram stop and bus stop. Room is very clean and staffs are very nice people! Recommended!! At the 4th floors you can get extra soft drinks/mineral water free of charge. Bathroom is very nice.

    May be only room rate for me is a bit high.

    Exceptional

    Very helpful staff. Free parking. Special breakfast prepared for very early departure: above and beyond expectations

    Website indicated shuttle bus to airport which turned out to not be exactly true. Hotel does not have a shuttle, they provide train coupon for travel to airport and the train does not run during the hours we needed to travel. We kept rental car instead. Would have to take a taxi had we not kept rental car.

    Superb

    Great location for sight-seers in Basel. Hotel staff were very helpful, room was lovely by European standards, and food was typical of other hotels where breakfast is included. A little noise from the trolley cars, but not enough to be a problem. We would definitely recommend to others.

    Excellent location, Free WiFi, Free Mini Bar, Decent rooms .... opposite to Basel central station .... also great proximity to trams & buses .... walking distance from old town & city center

    Superb

    Excellent hotel close to the main train station. Centrally located to Basel with easy tram access to take you all over the city. The hotel was very comfortable, with the best shower we experienced in our 5 week trip through Germany and Italy. Breakfast was very good and free wi-fi excellent, this hotel was only a handful that included this in the price.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    I thought the price was reasonable, and the breakfast was good.

    It's right in the middle of the city, so it could be noisy. we stayed on the fifth floor so the noise level wasn't too bad.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Good rooms (very clean), very large beds (for EU standards), very well served. Hotel is placed in a central location and the mobility ticket is very useful especially in cities like Basel. Recommended.
