Lovely little hotel for business trips
Helpful staff, lovely breakfast, good location, does the job nicely Nice place to stay with good access to all of Basel Just don't forget to bring a Swiss plug adapter if travelling from outside Switzerland

Fair 4.0
Very basic and nothing like the photos
Very basic apart from the bathroom that has recently been renovated and despite poor water pressure it is a small saving grace. The rest of the hotel is as basic as it comes, an EasyHotel is a few doors up and it is probably more luxurious! The room looks nothing like the one advertised - its more like a cross between a prison dorm and a youth hostel. Tiny TV that only has a few channels working. Basic bed - although the mattress is comfy... shame that they follow the standard Swiss thing of giving you just one pillow that collapses to a sheet of paper once you put your head on it! Hotel amenities are non existent - the bar is never open and staff are really indifferent to you being in the hotel. Coffee glass also hasn't been changed since I arrived 4 days ago and no free water bottles. Furthermore, curtains are not black out curtains - not so bad in winter but I would hate the 5 am wake up in the summer here. Oh and the heating doesn't work. WiFi was incredibly poor. It is a shame as I expected basic but paid a little more for a better room - unfortunately in Switzerland like everywhere - you get what you pay for and here it is expensive. So if you want just a place to crash and an average shower it is probably ok - just not for me.

Nice hotel at good location. Room didn't look as on the picture but was nice. Good breakfast. Staff very pleasant. I've been given a free transportation and wifi in the city during my stay in Basel which was amazing. Breakfast was ok, nothing special but enough to start the day. And the price was very affordable.

Bad Experience in Basel
Nice apartment but not a great location and the hotel staff are terrible! On the 2nd night we were locked out of our room when we returned at approx midnight, I called reception and they had to make a phonecall to the manager so the keycard could be re-activated to gain accress to our room. The reason of blocking our keycard was due to "damage" to a lamp shade in our bedroom apparently occured the evening before. Anyway, the re-activation took about an hour by which stage I was glad to see my bed! The next morning was checkout and that's when I found out the hotel had charged me (without my authorisation) for the damage to the lamp. I wouldn't have minded paying IF we had caused any damage but we were barely in our room and when we were it was to sleep so it couldn't have possibly been us. The crack in the lamp must have been done previously. After some minutes of arguing with hotel staff I departed under the assumption that I wouldn't be billed... but after landing home and calling my bank I found my bank balance to be shy of £175!! This was one expensive lamp shade and as you can imagine I was not happy, I have since contacted the fraud team in Santander and I hope this will help.
