    Basel Stay

    Weekend stay with mu daughter. We arrived around midday and were allowed to access our room straight away. Room was clean and good size. Reception staff were friendly and helpful with maps and directions for the city. We also received a Basel travel card which entitled us to free tram journeys. We ate breakfast at the Wettstein and it was enjoyable in the winter garden room. Location was great and we felt safe wandering around. Tram stop just outside hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again.

    The location is excellent for walking into old town Basel. The use of the Baselcard is perfect for getting around the area if you prefer not to walk. Spent 2 nights,staff was more than accommodating, let us sit in the lounge area and drink our own drinks. Now having said that we did purchase drinks and some meals in their restaurant, food was excellent.

    Great location to get to the conference center and a nice walk over the bridge to Old Town. If you don’t want to walk a lot, this may not be the place for you, but it was a pleasant hotel, nice staff and the room was clean and comfortable. I had a family room, so it was big by Europes standards. My only complaint is the room was very warm. I was there in November, so at least it wasn’t freezing, but I would open the windows when I was in there to let the cool air in. They do keep a pedestal fan in the room so I had that on at night to keep the air moving. My colleague had a room in another part of the building and said her room was fine.

    Have never had a hotel breakfast that could surpass this one. Great food selection, service, and eating area in an atrium. e-Bikes and regular bikes are available for use by guests. Hotel is conveniently located to public transportation. Just be advised that this hotel, like many in europe, does not have air conditioning.
