Very Good8.0
Nice location
Room was a decent size and clean. Asked for a room facing the river, was told it’d be extra, so we took it. Was well worth the minimal charge. Beautiful views! Didn’t stay in the morning for the breakfast, found it to be to expensive.

My stay in Basel
No smiling face anymore, only My room view was lovely, rooms are so small, staff was not friendly

Hotel Merian am Rhein
Good6.0
Hotel of 2 sides, good Rhine and poor street side
If you get a room on the street side (as opposed to the Rhine side) prepare to suffer from noise from bars down the street in the evening and trams (very early in the morning). Maybe you can hear the trams on the Rhine side of the hotel but I imagine that the view would make this annoyance less irritating. Overpriced for rooms on the street side, but maybe this is the standard price in Basel. I would not go back.
