Fab hotel with great service and breakfast
Stayed only one night for business trip. Staff were super welcoming and even loaned me an adapter when my Europe one didn't work (they also have tabletop iPhone charger which is great). Breakfast was really good, fresh salads and a very good savoury tart, not your usual fare it was nice. My room was small but fine for a night, bed a bit too hard and there was some noise outside my room but I will bring earplugs next time!

Always go here when in Basel
Been going to this hotel for years when I'm in Basel and it grew a lot. With latest refurbishment it definitely became an excellent location where to stay with comfortable rooms, nice showers and friendly staff.

Great base for a city break in Basel.
This is a great hotel for a city break as it is close to everything without being in a noisy area. It has a lovely garden which guests tend to use at breakfast time as well as in the evening when there is an honesty bar. Nice touches such as providing free bottles of water when we were leaving.

Long weekend in Basel
The hotel was in a good location for us. The room was very clean. The staff were extremely friendly without being over bearing. The breakfasts were fantastic especially in the beautiful garden.

Incredibly helpful staff
I often stay in this hotel when I’m in Basel - it’s in a great location for a reasonable price. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. During my last stay, housekeeping broke a powder makeup of mine. Within the day, the manager had replaced it with exactly the same branded product. Brilliant customer service!

Very good 8.0
Good Location, Great Staff
Hotel was a good location, near the main road. Staff was really helpful. Room was not the most modern but was clean and everything worked. Looking over the garden it was quiet, but I imagine being over the road is much louder! I brought my cat and they worked with me to ensure she was ok, and to help schedule the room cleaning so that I could put her in the carrier for a short while. The only downside was that it was often hard to tell what you had to pay for (tea downstairs? coffee?), nothing is signed. Also, the breakfast was not great value, I would say. 9CHF and you get one cup of tea and one bowl of muesli. Perhaps that's the norm here but it's very expensive! Finally, the room had no fridge (perhaps expected) but also no tea or coffee making facilities! Not even just a kettle. Would have really made use of that over a 6 day stay! Also, I had trouble with the WiFi, which nobody was able to help me with. Overall however the hotel was very nice and the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, and the location, is really what makes it. A lovely place.
