Excellent location at the edge of the old town to explore the city. Very clean room, has a japanese feel and everything needed for a comfortable stay. Complimentary water provided daily and was glad to have a kettle in the room to make tea. Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend.

The Art House Basel exceeded my expectations, even before I arrived. At the time of booking, I was planning my move to Basel and needed a place to stay before moving into my apartment a few blocks away. Evelyn, Fabian, Martina, and everyone else provided quick and clear communication via email and helped me with my large quantities of luggages, even offering to store my bicycle box, which was extremely helpful upon my arrival!!! When I did arrive and check into my room, I was met with a clean, modern setting that had a lot of natural light and perhaps the world's most comfortable bed. The balcony was excellent and the bathroom was fitted with very modern amenities. I loved the soap so much that I've now outfitted my new Basel apartment with the same products. The included breakfast was great and filling, and the coffee hot and delicious! The hotel is in a great location with easy access to the tram and restaurants galore. I highly highly recommend a stay here! You can't go wrong.

Hotel is well decorated and a modern one, but in front of a noisy club which finished playing loud songs at 5 am. Impossible to sleep as there is no acoustic insulation. We booked the package called “a romantic weekend” which sounds like a bad joke. When we complained to the reception about the noise, the response was “but this is an urban hotel….” As if you are not supposed to sleep on a urban hotel. Another swiss lie to make money hiding the truth. Never again!

We had such a pleasant stay in Art House Basel! The communication with them for the booking was super smooth and easy. The staff is super nice and friendly, the location is ideal, the hotel is design and modern, the restaurant is beautiful and the rooms are suuuper comfortable (and silent, even though you’re in the full center of Basel). The food was also delicious, we really enjoyed the dinner and breakfast in bed was super nice! This experience was a 10/10 and we’ll be back for sure!

Lovely modern rooms. Friendly and fun staff. Ideal location (and rooms are still quiet) Good breakfast. We had a great weekend in Basel. I would also stay here during the week. Oh and a great roof top bar. (Try their signature Hugo and I enjoyed the local beer)
