Second time to stay at this hotel. Right across from the train station and no 50 coach which transports you to and from the Airport- very friendly staff- room was clean and comfortable-breakfast was very good with good choice- the hotel is within walking distance to the centre and the tram stop is just outside if you don't feel like walking back to the hotel again and your days sightseeing

A home run when staying in Basel
What a pleasant stay! Started with outstanding service, free tram card, maps, restaurant, and sightseeing recommendations, and then an earlier check in. The room was fantastic, the breakfast was equally fantastic. And so convenient to train station and trams. We have very fond memories of our 2 day stay in Basel.
