I stayed just one night in the hotel. The service when I arrived was very nice to start with. They took the time for me, explained everything for my stay, offered a glass of water and helped with my luggage. The room was small, but somehow they managed to have everything in there within the small square meters. Everything was...

Basel (all of Switzerland) is expensive, but that doesn't always mean good quality hotels.

Just a 5 minute walk to Barfüsser Platz, with a stack of restaurants and lots of Trams. I arrived late in the evening...

Everything worked fine, from the reservation to the check-in and check-out. The breakfast was also nice and the service was really good. The location of the hotel is very handy and there is a paid parking place just by the hotel, which makes it easy to leave the car and enjoy the city.
