We were booked in here last minute, most of the hotels in Basel were full because of The World Watch and Jewellery Show at Baselworld. We quickly realised our hotel (more of a guest house) was located in the heart of the red light district. Many girls hanging around street corners, day and night. Ok not a problem we thought ...BUT when it came to bed time the noise from the street grew quite loud right through to daybreak. However the bedroom windows are double/double glazed, good for holding back noise but I found the air in the room was too hot. Summertime must be unbearable. The accommodation was adequate and the rooms clean. Really hope I don't end up here again as I need my sleep.
