    Wonderful Basel weekend trip hotel

    Great hotel for city center Basel, you could not have a better location. The service was great, very lovely receptionists, restaurant servers..all excellent. The things to improve could be slightly bigger beds, two mistresses for 2 people and 2 duvets. For a large double room. The terrace was open for eating, but would eliminate smoking during thw lockdown period.
