I got a room on Saturday and immediately noted that the toilet was broken. They didn't act nor offered me an alternative room (with working stuff,perhaps). Three hours later I got a call from reception informing me that the handyman was coming only on Monday . Also double check the space of your room before checking in: my was probably the smallest ,almost impossible to move around,since many years of traveling.

Dear Mr. Moro Thank you for your kind review. After you reported the loosened toilet lid, our housekeeper carried out a small temporary repair. That seemed to solve the problem. We are sorry if that was not the case. We actually couldn't get a professional craftsman on Saturday. You are right, the room category you booked is only 15 square meters. For guests who want more space, we recommend the "standard charming room" with 19 square meters or the "large double room" with 25 square meters. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again. Best regards Michaela Maria Nazarek Host

We stayed in this hotel (a true gem) the weekend of May 1-3rd and we both were very impressed with pretty much everything. TOP customer service (all front desk people). Very nice room and top quality mattress, sheets and pillows. Very nice location (close to everything). I am a light sleeper so had to sleep with my earplugs (but I am used to it so no problem) as our room was overlooking the street. Very nice garden restaurant (it was raining so we were not able to eat outside but it is absolutely charming and lush). Hotel was super clean and there was a water fountain on every floor (super tasty soft water). We shall definitely be back as we truly enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Everything was better than expected! The room was advertised as small, and they are but not cramped, very optimised and slick. Super clean. Simple yet tasty quality breakfast. But the staff was everything. Despite the pandemic, warm welcome, a glass of wine, good conversation, discrete. I will go again next time I visit Basel for sure!
