I love everything in this hotel. Beginning for the perfect location and the friendly reception. The room was so comfortable and spacious, with everything we need to feel well:) Little details like a Nespresso coffeemaker and chocolates make the stay better. The shower and the supplies of the bathroom were perfect. About the surrounding, the hotel is in the heart of Basel with a lot of transports and charmant shops in the historical center.

We stayed in the junior suite which was excellent. Large, well equipped, excellent bathroom and comfortable bed. The staff were all helpful, cheerful and efficient. We stayed as they were reopening after the closure due to Covid 19 virus so the hotel was very quiet and the main lift was being ? replaced. The staff were very helpful in letting use the staff lift. The location was perfect for the centre of the city.

Beautifil room spacious. TWO gifts of chocolate on arrival, wonderful coffeemaker (reservoir freshly filled), large bath, sophisticated. Best were the supremely helpful, welcoming staff. I forgot Switzerland electrically use yet another type of plug and they supplied one immediately. They also prepared a basic breakfast for me as I was leaving at 5am. Nearby, in a coutyard, its a superb vegan cafe/bakery.
