We walked in and the hotel is extremely nice and the price is very nice too for being in such a great location. The ladies at the front desk couldn't be nicer and the Manager (Martin) and his staff goes out of his way to ensure you enjoy your stay. We especially liked the Basel tourist card with free public transportation and wifi. We will stay here soon!

No thrills, but solid safe stay. Location is unbeatable: right in the center, behind main shopping street and 10 min walk from the Rhein. Good size room, comfortable shower. Room was completely sanitized, staff held the distance. Will come back.

The rooms are simple, but give what you need when you are a business traveler. The (continental) breakfast is good and the breakfast area is a kind of special, with sofa's and a few tables, located in the lobby.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were treated so well by very friendly and polite staff. The room was very comfortable and clean! Thoroughly recommend staying here and visiting the city! I would recommend the small boat ferry across the Rhine. Great Gluten Free places to eat!

Just spent a night in this hotel for a week end in Basel. The hotel is great, can't be more central. Very very clean and functional yet comfi. Good bathroom. Nice staff. Nice bar.... what else....🙂. Just to mention less cool, the low table at breakfast that might not be comfortable for all. But we liked it. A must Go!
