    The rooms and especially the bathrooms are tiny. They’ve been upgraded since I was last there and I realise the space is what it is but I did fight with the shower doors. The staff are pleasant enough however at check-in I was ignored for a while by the guy on the desk until he was ready to speak to me. Also no offer with luggage which would have been appreciated since my room was a few floors up a lot of stairs.

    Sweet little village street. I enjoyed seeing families out on a Sunday afternoon enjoying themselves. I was able to watch from my open window.

    Great hotel! Avoid cityview recently! Please read.

    This hotel has a really good location. It is along Rhein River and next to the bridge to the city center. There is a tram station near this hotel about 1min walk, and you can have a Basel card which can take trams free for a month and has discount to visit museums. They have free water, sparking water, tea, coffee, boiling pot and fruit on each floor. Staff there are very friendly and speak good English. My room is a single bed room; it is small but very comfortable. There is only one downside of this place, which is noise. Recently, there is a construction site on the backside of this hotel. I stayed in the room with city view, however, there is no city, just a higher building on the back and is under construction. They start to work from 8am to 6pm, but I believe that they started earlier than that, because I stayed here for an academic conference, so I need to get up really early for 8:30am plenary talk. I remembered that I was awake because of the noise from outside. They used a huge vacuum to clean the construction site and throw the table, and other large furniture from 3rd floor(4th floor in US, because 1st floor is their ground floor) and above to a truck on the street. That sound is unforgettable and scary. The guy next to my room snored really loud during the night, and sing in the early morning. I would be really pissed if I was not so tired and had to get up so early. I think river view room should be much better. Overall this is a really good hotel.

    Rooms are small but service is great. Unfortunately the building across the street burned down recently which left an unpleasant smell in some rooms.
