N47°33'10.601478" E7°34'52.147681" This B&B is located in a quiet residential area west of the city centre. It is a 5-10 minutes’ walk to the city centre and a short 30-minute transfer by public transport from the airport. At EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg, take bus 50 to bus stop Brausebad. From here, take tram 1 to stop Zoo Bachletten and enter Leimenstraße. With proof of reservation, public transport is free of charge.
Loredana (the owner) lives 800 meters from the B&B. She was waiting in front of her B&B. No AirBnB key codes by e-mail and a lonely folder to welcome you. Loredana took the time to explain the apartment (kitchen, television, Wi-Fi (good reception) and door locks). We received the BaselCards for free public transport and discounts on many museums. She has a collection of brochures from various museums and events on a table in the living room.
The apartment is an ordinary but large family apartment on the first floor (2F) with living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We had the room with a double bed and a private bathroom. No hotel room with sofa, minibar and television. Only a bedroom. Everything we needed or else go to the living room. The other rooms share the second bathroom. The double bed had a single person duvet and slept a bid too hard to our taste. That is personal. We liked to sleep with open windows in this quiet neighbourhood.
The kitchen is fully equipped for those who want to cook for themselves (Basel restaurants can be expensive). For breakfast, Loredana stocked the refrigerator with juice, milk, eggs, butter and yoghurt. She left tea, croissants, fruit, cereal, honey and jam for breakfast the next morning. The Nespresso coffee was excellent. During our stay in September 2019, the other two rooms were available. With other guests, you have to plan the breakfast times.
We contacted the owner by e-mail and booked the room for 3 nights without using internet-booking agencies to avoid their fees. Compared to hotel prices in Basel, this B&B offered an affordable price in Basel, but still the hotel price level in Switzerland is above the average European level.
In September 2019, B&B Bouanonotte offered a quiet and affordable overnight stay in a well-equipped apartment just a 5-10 minutes’ walk from Basel's Altstadt.

Thank you very much for your lovely review! As you explained very well, in my accommodation there are (besides living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen): 1 double room with en-suite bathroom 2 single rooms who share one bathroom (with shower) Guests can just reserve a room (with breakfast) and maybe there are other guests in the apartment. Most of the time, however, they are alone (like you) and they do not meet other people. If somebody want to reserve like "apartment" and prefer to be alone, he has just to tell me. I will be glad to host again you in case you return to Basel
