    Excellent location next to historical Spalentor area and easy walking distance to the University, restaurants and downtown shopping district. Very helpful staff. Rooms are comfortable and cozy. Limited parking is available in front of the hotel or close in an underground parking.

    Pleasant and Peaceful Haven

    Well situated and easy access to the city / river Seine / main train stations either by walking or catching the local buses at the junction with the hotel. Staff very helpful and room is comfortable, clean and air conditioning works well. Breakfast could have been more substantial with cereals but a typical continental breakfast :-)

    Living up to the number of stars...

    The front desk staff was all friendly, courteous, and capable. The room was clean and comfortable and relatively quiet despite proximity to a major road. The location is very convenient. Close to a bus stop and a tram stop, allowing to access most parts of the city. This hotel will be my "go-to" hotel in Basel. See you in a few months.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very good location. Very helpful and friendly multilingual staff. Room was quite large and modern. The hotel doesn’t look like much from the outside but is nicer inside. The biggest negative is the car parking. There is no car park at the hotel so they offer a space at a private car park about 300m away, across two streets, in a busy central area, and they charge an extra 16 CHF per night for this. The car park location is really bad for anyone with kids, heavy luggage or mobility issues - and even worse if it rains.

    Christmas Markets Hotel

    This was an EXCELLENT choice! It's located less than 5 minutes outside the gate to the Old City. We were in town for the Christmas Markets and couldn't have picked a better location. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was incredible - clean, new, large. We were within easy walking distance of the Christmas Markets inside the Old City and right on the bus and light rail lines. We were about a 10 minute bus ride to the main rail station. Definitely would stay here again!

    Very convenient for the Christmas markets. Free Basel pass allowed us to take the streetcar a block away directly to the Markets. The staff was very accommodating and breakfast very good.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very good location in the old part of the town, nice and big room, friendly staff. The only thing that initially was unpleasant - the room temperature was ~28C, and since this an eco-friendly hotel, no AC at this time of the year. Opened the window - too noisy, cars and bypassing smokers filled the room with fumes. However, Julia, one of the receptionist helped us to resolve the problem. That was very nice!
