Good experience, I've been there for a regular business trip and I'll go back for sure. The breakfast could be extended, although the quality was good and the views fantastic. The room and bed really comfortable and it's in a great location.

We stayed here from 25/11/16 - 29/11/16. This hotel is well located less than 2 mins walk to Basel SBB (central train station), which made it convenient to do day trips to Lucerne, Zurich, Bern and other parts of Switzerland. There is a Starbucks next to this hotel and lots of restaurants nearby as well as a tram stop with...

Very good option close to the train station, which is not very often considered. The service is excellent and it is a little bit less expensive than similar hotels. The breakfast is good but not outstanding, but it is now my preferred hotel when wanting to stay close to Basel SBB.
