Really average motel with spacious rooms. Unfortunately the mattress is extremely thin and hard. The breakfast was delicious and fresh. Staff was neither friendly nor unfriendly. It was a special offer so the price was ok..but next time I rather spend a little more and stay in a real hotel.

The Aparthotel Adagio is a perfect home base for any trip to Basel. It is perfectly located (several public transport stops are nearby and the hotel is at walking distance from the old city and the Rhine). The rooms feature a kitchenette which provides everything you need (just the knives are crappy and it would be nice to have basics...

It was clean, it was almost what it said on the website. Well equipped apartment, perfect for the solo business traveller. You could cook, sleep and relax there.

My husband and I used this hotel as a base while doing a short sightseeing tour in Switzerland (Basel, Bern and Zurich). It was a perfect place for such a trip. The apartment was rather small, but really had everything you might think of while on a short city trip. The kitchen was also well equipped, so we managed to...

Room was ok has a kitchen for cooking and view was also ok. The problem was front desk service.

Nice room, service OK but ventilation is blasting 24/7 and nothing can be done according to the staff. Do not book there if that can bother you. I try to be as nice and tolerant as I can but really, do not stay here if loud ventilation is a deal breaker for you.

Amazing value when booking in advance. Self-catering facility saves on eating out, a relatively expensive option in Switzerland. Clean, efficient, everything you could need and within easy walking distance of shops, trams and not too far from the main centre of Basel. Late check-in fine, friendly staff and excellent soundproofing in the room. The room was a little too warm...
