Good 6.0
It’s just ‘fine’
Decent location by the SBB Rooms are small but the beds are comfortable Fine for an overnight business trip but would not book it for a romantic weekend!

Nothing to write home about...
Decent hotel, close to station. Hotel itself seemed a bit dated, strange layout, long walk to room up various flights of stairs. Room itself was small but ok.

Great for short stay
Location was perfect just across road from front of Basel SBB station. Room was clean and functional just a little cramped, with a bedside table only on one side of the bed. For our one night before travelling on it was more than perfect and a great price but could be it a bit cramped for three or more nights if using it as a base to explore Basel. Staff very friendly and free chocolates at reception!!

Comfortable No Frills Hotel
As this hotel is on the cheaper side of the scale I was able to stay in one of the deluxe double rooms. This provided a bit more space and comfort with a good size modern bathroom. Others have mentioned noise issues but I was not disturbed at all in the night and had a goods night sleep, only hearing people in the morning as they headed off outside to start their day. I have already booked my next stay here.

Very good 8.0
We enjoyed our stay overall. Room was clean and tidy. Staff were friendly. I was offered a room upgrade for 20CHF, and the way it was offered to me it sounded like 20CHF for the entire 2 night stay, so I said yes, but when I checked out it was actually charged per night. I should've clarified, but at the same time it was also not communicated to me properly on check-in. So not entirely happy about this but didn't fight it.
