I found this hotel for a meeting in the Congress Hall. Less expensive than other hotels suggested by the conference. Short, two-block walk to the Congress Hall and the Messe. Weather in Basel was unusually warm and sunny, so the west-facing room was hot most of the day until evening (no air conditioning) Several restaurants on the same street. Hotel...

I just don't understand how in 2017 you can still have hotels like this one. First of all the room: keys, already sets the tone. The door is like thin paper, no isolation whatsoever. I initially thought the windows were open, but no, that's how bad the isolation is. If you are a light sleeper with no earplugs get ready...

i had a double room, 217, which seemed to be small, as far as that goes. there was just room to walk around the bed. add to this, there was closet and cupboard space, a cappuccino machine for pod coffee provided, with a clean toilet and shower, hand sink and mirror. the water pressure was excellent and could have pushed...

I was on a waiting list for many years to get rooms at this hotel. The manager Alaattin is a gentleman to say the least and is always willing to help in any way he can. What makes this a 7* hotel, is that during Baselworld (The whole of Basel celebrate this amazing show, which I have worked at since...

I booked this hotel as it was in the perfect location. We arrived and the receptionist was very very kind. Unfortunately my room smelled heavily of smoke (218), it was unbearable so i asked to be moved. The receptionist was very apologetic and seemed very embarassed but he could not move me. In all fairness he offered to book me...

We stayed here for an away football match so just the one night. It is just what you need, has a bed, a shower (bring your own toilteries) it's clean and the staff are very helpful. There is a restaurant/bar that made pizza for us after the match at about 12:30am and it was no issue at all. We also...

This is a very pleasant little hotel which is on a direct tram line from the centre(6 mins?) and has a pizza restaurant built into the premises. The rooms are not large and are utilitarian rather than luxurious, but they do a good job at their level and the beds are comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent . This would...

Me and my family stayed here for 2 nights and it's brilliant! The reception staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and spacious, the bed was so comfortable free WiFi and breakfast was good in the morning. There's a tram stop a short walk away or its not far to walk to some nice places. I would definitely stay here...

Stayed for one night during a conference. The room is kinda small but clean (as are the beds, the closet and the bathroom). Wifi was working fine at all times. The restaurant on the ground floor was OK, and I explain. The food was tasty, the service was very slow with the exception of Silvia. She took the extra step...

There's very little to fault with this hotel. The rooms are slightly smaller than the average hotel and they don't have a 24 hour reception desk. It's also noisy from 6/7am. But it's affordable, clean and the staff are friendly. It's also in a decent location, made slightly better by the lack of hotels in Basel in general. It's right...
