I would stay again but...
A hot few days so lack of air conditioning surprising in a new hotel. There was a free-standing fan kindly placed in the room. Single room could not have been smaller and very expensive. But I would stay again in a larger room and book in advance. A great position with friendly good value restaurant by the riverside.

Noisy hotel by the river
Hotel on the other side of the river to the centre. By a team stop. Noisy pub opposite. Good bars and restaurants in the area

Good 6.0
Beds very uncomfortable. Street is noisy. Hotel claims triple glazing but it certainly wasn't installed in my room. As a result, getting a decent sleep was a challenge.

Nice accommodations in Old Basel right on the Rhine River and main tram route.
