This was a nice, somewhat unimpressive hotel at first sight. Appearances, however, can be misleading! It is a 3 star hotel in a clean and convenient location. A good ten minute walk takes us to the Central Market area where farmers from around the region come to sell their produce. My wife and I walked over to the place i.e.... More

Hotel pictures are spot on, dont expect anything more. reasonable stay though to me appeared expensive or perhaps thats standard across Switzerland. Was not overly impressed by staff though pleasant enough at times. average vote for average stay, nothing out of the ordinary although one thing, its conveniently near tram stop!

Ok, it's good value for money I'll give you that but otherwise unless the entire city is booked out this is probably not the best place for you. Clearly passed it's prime, both common areas and rooms, and in heavy need of some TLC. Breakfast didn't look great so I passed. One mitigating factor is the location which is pretty... More

Located very close to the tram and local shops. The main shopping street and Münsterplatz are a 10 minute walk away, I travelled in December so was lucky enough to see a very good Christmas market here. My room was clean and bed comfy. I also ate in the hotel restaurant, good service and reasonable prices for Basel.

This place is decent. It is located near the city centre (some 20 min walk) and near public transportation. Rooms are refurbished but it seems it was done just half way through. For example, furniture is new but floor and doors are old and squeaky. They offer free WI-FI. Staff were ok, but late in the evening they had an... More

I stayed in the Hotel for a week in the month of June. Best thing about the Hotel is the location. It is located right at the heart of the city. The Hotel is right at the start of the market area, 5 minutes from the river Rhine. It has lot of good restaurants in the walking proximity. One of... More

The staff in this hotel were incredibly helpful and friendly. The hotel's décor is nothing to write home about, but it is very clean and well situated within Basel. I am sure that this is an excellent hotel to stay in if travelling on a budget. We liked the fact that breakfast started at 06:30am as we had our longest... More

This hotel looks very old from the outside but inside they are trying hard to maintain this place. The rooms were quite small & the bathrooms were adequate. Two bottles of water & Complimentary Wifi were good. The tram stops just outside the hotel so this helped us to reach from the train station. The Breakfast was disappointing & was... More

“Don't get a room near the elevator. It is the noisiest area. Also, ask about the room when you book. They are so varied in size. Ask for a larger one that is quieter. We were on the 1st floor, but I imagine the upper floors are quieter.”
