This is a very pleasant little hotel which is on a direct tram line from the centre(6 mins?) and has a pizza restaurant built into the premises. The rooms are not large and are utilitarian rather than luxurious, but they do a good job at their level and the beds are comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent . This would...

Me and my family stayed here for 2 nights and it's brilliant! The reception staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and spacious, the bed was so comfortable free WiFi and breakfast was good in the morning. There's a tram stop a short walk away or its not far to walk to some nice places. I would definitely stay here...

Stayed for one night during a conference. The room is kinda small but clean (as are the beds, the closet and the bathroom). Wifi was working fine at all times. The restaurant on the ground floor was OK, and I explain. The food was tasty, the service was very slow with the exception of Silvia. She took the extra step...

There's very little to fault with this hotel. The rooms are slightly smaller than the average hotel and they don't have a 24 hour reception desk. It's also noisy from 6/7am. But it's affordable, clean and the staff are friendly. It's also in a decent location, made slightly better by the lack of hotels in Basel in general. It's right...

Location was ideal for the convention Centre (2 minute walk). The hotel is very basic, no air conditioning but clean. Continental breakfast was good. I'd recommend a room away from the Main Street, as the tram and late-night revellers were very loud.

Great location, close to lots of tram stops and a 15 minute walk to the town centre. Friendly staff who were very accomodating in holding our luggage for us until check-in. Lovely clean and light rooms, breakfast fresh and good selection of Teas and Coffee. Good hotel in a lovely city with nice staff

Stayed for 2 nights while in the city for Europa Cup final. Slightly inflated price because of that but good value in comparison to other hotels. Location was good with a couple of bars and restaurants nearby. Tram stop across the road to get into the centre on the other side of town (6-7 mins). Easy access to station via...
