I recently attended a meeting at the Exposition Center in Basel and stayed at this hotel on Rheingasse. It is on the bank of the Rhein river. I was there on a festive day of Rheinschwimmende and hoped to have a view. Please see photos. Unfortunately I was assigned a room on the 5th floor on the "new building" across the street with no view. I arrived and the elevate was out of service causing me to carry my things up to the 5th floor. There was no air conditioning, which might usually be necessary, but during my stay, it was hot and only barely acceptable. This is not uncommon in comparable hotels. The bathroom was large, modern, and worked perfectly. There were cold water taps (with and without gas) just outside the room that came in handy. The staff was nice, helpful, and very efficient. The city has a superb tram system giving access to the entire city and a very convenient stop was very nearby. All in all for such hotels with an excellent location, this is an very good and recommended option.
