We spend a beautiful and quiet night in this modern clean and recommendable hotel to a reasonable price, friendly welcome at the desk, prompt checkout. It is close to the public traffic, within a short walk to downtown of Basel.

Dear Tovya Thank you very much for your excellent rating. We are very happy you could enjoy your stay in our hotel. It is quite impressive that you can remeber our breakfast buffet that well, since it is not that small.

A pleasant hotel near the old city, affiliated with the university and used mainly for meetings. Bedrooms are fairly bare, but clean. Breakfast is great - good coffee, cheeses, jams, cakes - and served in a pretty space outside the main building.

Great location, not far from Spalentor. Easily accessible by S-bahn and bus. Rather small room on upper level - I banged my head on the roof. Central heating too warm for this time of year, but window could be opened. Had to toss off doona in the end. Adequate bathroom with shower door that closed. Reasonably priced breakfast, but started...

This hotel has a very nice location in a quiet little park set back from the main street. It's walking distance to the centre of Basel. The reception staff were perfectly friendly and professional. My bedroom was rather small, though comfortable enough, and reasonably well designed in terms of storage space, electric sockets etc. Breakfast was OK. Not outstanding, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 1890s could be a strict era for children, and this is when a certain missionary family child, the future writer and Nobel laureate, Hermann Hesse, roamed our park. We imagine it was prohibited for young children to snack on the grapes and berries in the park at the time. But it seems equally likely that young Hermann ignored the restrictions. He already had a well-earned reputation as a rebel. So, if during autumn in our park a red-cheeked apple smiles at you, give in to its innocent seduction, just as Hermann would! And during the rest of the year we will lead you into further modest temptations because we are enthusiastic about our park and want to share this with all our guests. During the warm seasons we invite the ice cream man into our park, and when it is cold the roast chestnut vendor, so you can indulge in these little treats too. And if, as has happened with many other guests, attending one of our events gives you food or refreshment ideas for your next reception or barbecue, please come see us. In our park, a thousand and one such dreams can come true. PS: Throughout our park, no chemical insecticides or herbicides are used. Instead, all the fruit is grown using only certified organic cultivation methods and substances. And if you rest for a while on one of our cosy park benches, you will share your time with many birds and butterflies. ... more   less
