Lumpy pillow, hot room. They advertised on booking.com that they were situated near the airport with an airport shuttle. What a joke. A bus and a tram later, we finally got to our hotel. It will cost us $50 francs to get back to the airport by taxi. How they could advertise that they were an airport hotel and get...

The walk into town takes about 15 minutes or you can take advantage of the free travel cards that you are given when you check in to take the tram into town (we found these a really useful to explore all of Basel). The room itself was quite small but the bed was comfy and there's a desk area to...

We stayed here for four nights to enjoy the Carnival. We were able to catch bus 30 from the train station which took us to a bus stop about 50 meters from the hotel. We arrived in the evening and check in was swift although we were not initially given a twin bedded room which we had specifically requested and...

The location of the hotel is not ideal for tourists, however the tourist attractions are still walking distance, and one get a free mobility card for the public transport within Basel city. The rooms are comfortable, and although ours was overlooking the street, it is a quiet street. A small negative is that the bathroom door is of milk glass,...

Small business hotel but has a bar, a restaurant, carpark, a fitness room and conference rooms. The fitness room has a few aerobic exerciser machines and a set of free dumbbells but only up to 10kg and one bench. A disappointment is that breakfast isn't included in the room rate. Staff are friendly - they do smile. The hotel room...

The room had the basics: In-room safe, powerful shower head, comfortable beds, large fridge. The hotel provided coffee and tea in the room for us, so I'm not sure if that's standard, as some reviewers indicated they paid extra. Concierge was friendly, and helpful. We received transit passes through the hotel which was easy to use, and very helpful. We...

Everything was good. Nothing particularly outstanding or noteworthy. It was what was advertised and therefore satisfied expectations. Good transport links to the centre and good service. Breakfast had a decent selection. Only issue was that our bath leaked water which was a real pain.
