Welcome to the city garden Our hotel is located in Basel's largest private recreation park, and yet still lies within the heart of the city. The heritage-listed ODELYA hotel building was erected in 1860 and expanded with the construction of the new AYLEDO building. Enjoy both the tranquillity of our organic wild garden and the proximity to the diversity of city life in Basel.

Windsor, United Kingdom27 contributions28 helpful votes
Stayed 3 nights for a business course. Convenient location only ~ 20 minutes from the Basel airport and walking distance to the town centre. I was a little surprised at how small a single room was. It was reminiscent of a university dorm, single bed, small desk and a TV. En suite wet room with a shower /toilet. The pros: clean room, comfortable bed and uk satellite channels. Also decent WiFi. Staff were professional and polite The cons : small room, not particularly cheap for a 3 star, rather basic breakfast (only hot options were scrambled egg, boiled egg that I could recall)

This seemed to be a mixture of hotel, conference centre and student Mecca. Successfully achieved mix. Pleasant anodyne decor - room very adequate (no mini bar - but not a worry), with safe, small desk and large opening window, A very adequate bathroom. A pleasant Common Room on the fourth (top?) floor. Staff friendly, breakfast good. Location - not central but 10 minutes walk or tram available. Unremarkably very agreeably.

We got to this hotel by chance, just because the apt we booked on airbnb turned out being totally different from its description. We were in Basel during some big sport event therefore most hotels were already sold out. Luckily we found an amazing family room in this hidden jam! First of all the room was spacious, nice and very clean! Second of all the staff is amazing, so kind and helpful! We went to the breakfast room (breakfast was amazing, so many tasty things to choose from) with the kids who after eating started running around but nobody complained, they actually played with the kids. The hotel has a very nice garden, the kids could run around the all day and nobody complained. On top of that, the hotel is in the very centre of the city: at walking distance tourists can enjoy many attractions and anyway tram stops are just few steps away. We highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely go back!

Friendly hotel close to Spalentor (12 mins to city center) and tram no 3. Large rooms, quiet and not expensive. On really hot days, the ventilator helps a little - but aircon would be better. Hotel belongs to a Christian association, but is secular and used for seminars and private stays.

Dear trooper92 Thank you very much for taking your time to give us a review. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us. About the temperature we understand that you have wished a room with air conditioning. Since the hotel is under heritage, we are not allowed to put them in the rooms. But we will forward your feedback to our staff. We hope that we can welcome you again soon. Best wishes from the hotel bildungszentrum 21

A nice hotel, 10 minutes walking to the city centre or 5 min with the tram. Very quiet. Nice breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms rooms are clean but they look like student dorms. You don't get the hotel feeling! Overall a good experience. I would recommend it and consider staying again on my next visit to Basel. Also 15 mins by taxi to the airport and easy to find if you get a bus from the airport (you change two buses but very easy). They also have free WI-FI.

Dear Christina023 Thank you for your review and the time you spent on it. We are glad to hear you have enjoyed your stay with us and that you noticed the friendliness of our colleagues and the cleanliness in the hotel on which our management puts great value. We regret that we did not meet your expectations regarding your room. We are aware of necessary changes in the corridors but are surprised that you compare our rooms with student-dorm rooms. We will forward your praises and your feedback to our entire team right away and please you to ask for a different room when booking with us the next time, as our 73 rooms are all different. We hope to welcome you as our guest again soon. Best wishes from the hotel bildungszentrum 21
