Clean, spacious hotel in the heart of Basel
Beautiful hotel with an amazing interior. Reception staff were extremely helpful. Close to trams stops, shops and great places to eat. Be aware that there are no tea or coffee facilities in the room but there is a fantastic bar on the ground floor where you purchase hot and cold drinks as well as snacks. Fantastic views from my hotel room which was on the corner of the hotel.

Great hotel, friendly, perfect location!
The hotel was great! The staff are very friendly. They give you a card which gives you free public transport plus half price off lots of attractions in and around the city. The rooms were nice, clean and sound proof - we couldn't hear anyone else. We didn't eat or drink anything at the hotel since the location is so central, you're right in the middle of everything so it's easier to go find somewhere. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Greal location.
Great location, clean, good service. Rooms a tad small and very basic, but that's splitting hairs.
