I spend only one night at this lovely historical hotel for a workshop. I arrived very late but still found very helpful and friendly staff at the reception. I stayed in one of the single rooms and it was great. The bed was very comfortable, I had a good night rest. The room was clean with a window out to...

Dear Tovya Thank you very much for your excellent rating. We are very happy you could enjoy your stay in our hotel. It is quite impressive that you can remeber our breakfast buffet that well, since it is not that small.

We were excited to stay in this very historic hotel! The Basel Mission sent missionaries to China, which in turn sent Chinese missionaries to Hawaii where we are from. The building is very well kept and comfortable. We enjoyed the suite on the 5th floor and the Samowar room on the 4th floor where we could get coffee & teas....

My parents recently stayed here, in a large corner room with a kitchen. This allowed us to cook together during their extended 8 day stay. The room was very comfortable, allowing us to spend some nice time together. The breakfast buffet was nice too. This hotel goes easy on your budget and is not too far outside the town center....

Attending a 2-day dance event with a friend, we stayed two nights here. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the room spacious and clean, and the location quiet, but convenient. A free ticket for the Basel public transport system is a nice addition. Breakfast was very good (with the trivial exception of an under-cooked egg!) but rather expensive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 1890s could be a strict era for children, and this is when a certain missionary family child, the future writer and Nobel laureate, Hermann Hesse, roamed our park. We imagine it was prohibited for young children to snack on the grapes and berries in the park at the time. But it seems equally likely that young Hermann ignored the restrictions. He already had a well-earned reputation as a rebel. So, if during autumn in our park a red-cheeked apple smiles at you, give in to its innocent seduction, just as Hermann would! And during the rest of the year we will lead you into further modest temptations because we are enthusiastic about our park and want to share this with all our guests. During the warm seasons we invite the ice cream man into our park, and when it is cold the roast chestnut vendor, so you can indulge in these little treats too. And if, as has happened with many other guests, attending one of our events gives you food or refreshment ideas for your next reception or barbecue, please come see us. In our park, a thousand and one such dreams can come true. PS: Throughout our park, no chemical insecticides or herbicides are used. Instead, all the fruit is grown using only certified organic cultivation methods and substances. And if you rest for a while on one of our cosy park benches, you will share your time with many birds and butterflies. ... more   less
