    I was lucky to a room with a view under the old town and the river Rhine which is absolutely great. The hotel itself seem somewhat run down and could use a refurbishment. The room is fairly small but very functional.

    It depends which airport you are flying in, if via Basel airport, then the taxi queue is just outside the arrival hall. It's easy to take taxi from there.
