Was close to public transportation but also close enough to walk to the old town or river. Very kind and helpful staff, room was nice although the bathroom was a bit small overall found it a good hotel for a short stay.

My wife and I feel very lucky for staying at this high quality hotel. Great location, clean and nice room with very comfortable bed and many facilities, such as the rocking chair. Everything was really good, the staff, the breakfast and the price. We also liked the fact that we were offered mobility tickets for Basel.
