“Lovely home away from home”

We had a great time staying at Pensione Lungomare recently. After we arrived, Julian came over to say hello and invited us over to his place for coffee. My husband was working so it was just me and my daughter for a lot of the time; Julian popped over to invite us out for dinner by the Rhine. He also left some fruit at our door!
The apartment itself is great; nice and spacious with a kitchen filled with lots of condiments for cooking. My daughter loved the shower in the kitchen and so did I - the water pressure was amazing.
The location is great - close to public transport, the Rhine, A park and lots of cafes. Be sure to check out Julian's list of recommendations while in Basel - lots of fantastic tips. Highly recommended!

I stayed with my husband and two young children (under 5) in the Pensione, and we liked it very much. It was so fun to go down to the Rhine after dinner, and we enjoyed many evenings of sipping beer and swimming in the river. There is also a park very close by that my children enjoyed for the playground equipment and the splashing pools. It was a quick walk to Coop and other markets, and a quick ride back to GrossBasel (the old city, where I worked). In short, it was ideal. The beds were comfortable, the washing machine was always accessible, the neighbors were friendly and kind to our children, we quickly got used to showering in the kitchen and toiletting down the hall (this is not so common in the States!) Julian and his family were wonderful hosts. I would definitely stay at the Pensione again.

“It`s like to come home.”
Reviewed 27 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Pensione Lungomare is the best place to stay, if you visit Basel, I think.
Julian and his team are really friendly and eager to make each guest's stay as enjoyable as possible.
The apartment is beautiful and a real place to feel at home in Basel. Not suitable for snobs, but for all cosmopolitan, nice people. The right place to conquer Basel or just to relax.
And the Rhine is just around the corner.
Once I was there with my daughter and once with my friend.
We have been happy there and I hope I am allowed and welcome to come again.

“Perfect long stay place for a family”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We - two adults and three kids (12, 14, 16) spent a month in the Pensione Lungomare and we loved it! The location is perfect for quick access into town either on foot, by tram or with the bicycles provided with the apartment. There is a good variety of supermarkets and restaurants close by. The Rhein Promanade is stone-throw away. The apartment is simply furnished, but clean and spacious with everything you need to self-cater, right down to the washing machine.
The host, Julian, is very pleasant and makes you feel well taken care of. We had an issue with the free internet access and even though Julian was on holiday, he still managed to give us options and eventually sort out the problem.
The only reason I did not put excellent is because the toilet is in the corridor, the shower in the kitchen (its and older apartment), and there is no TV, which some people might find uncomfortable or unusual.
We are very much looking forward to our next stay in summer this year.
