Very good 8.0
Good Value Hotel
Good basic hotel for business trip. Welcoming and helpful staff. Only real criticism was the the free Wi-Fi was extremely slow

Good stay, as long as you don't need services
The hotel was perfect for what we needed. Good location and very comfortable room for a family. Not having a front desk was a little odd, but we did not have issues checking in, including arriving pretty early on our day. If you just need it as a home base and not need much in terms of service, this is the property for you.

Simple, cost effective, clean, self check in
Easy self check in (though a little time consuming inputting our personal details at the kiosk), clean room, decent sleep, very simple. Close to Basel SBB, free grab and go breakfast included with a small but decent selection . Exactly what you should expect of a motel at this price, no frills.

Fair 4.0
Poor automation
The hotel advertises itself as 24 hour concierge but it does not make clear that there is actually no front desk at all. It is entirely reliant on a computer screen and if one tries to key in the booking details, it will not allow a check in and will ask the guest to come back after 3pm. There is also no clear way of leaving luggage at the hotel even though there must be housekeeping in the morning. The hotline at the buzzer is also unreliable - it can ring but there is no answer or it will just drop off. It was therefore difficult to reach anyone other than to make expensive overseas calls and even then the machine that generates the access card is very unreliable. Even after 3pm, it didn’t work and the lady at the bar had to call the person in charge to resolve. Leaving luggage at the hotel was equally problematic. There was no one to answer the door even though housekeeping was there. Again the hotline at the buzzer doesn’t and one had to make an overseas call just to get an access card which again didn’t work because the machine hung but luckily housekeeping came out. A very poorly run and inefficient process
