“Fantastic, cosy and quirky apartment”
Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Pensione Lungomare for one week while my husband was working in Basel. The owner, Julian, was extremely helpful and considerate and looked after all our needs. The apartment itself was beautifully warm and cosy, the kitchen (which quirkily also housed a shower) was very well stocked with all manner of kitchen utensils and both bedrooms were a good size. The apartment is very near to the river, which our children loved, and is a 25 minute walk from the city centre. The only drawback for me was the loo, which was situated outside in the corridor and was rather cold, as we were there in December. But, aside from that the apartment was perfect and a great place to stay. Thanks Julian!

“100% recommendable”

A really pleasant hostel to stay either a short or a long period in Basel, very nicely situated in a quiet road of Kleine Basel, near the Rhine river, well communicated, with nice natural light and lots of space.
The typical Swiss layout of the toilet outside and a shower in the kitchen is surprisingly not bothering at all.

We had a great time in this cozy no fuss place in the lively neighborhood of Kleinbasel. Julian and his family are inspiring hosts. Highly recommendable!

“5 star stay in centre of Basel”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Excellent position , right in the centre, Julian was perfect host, room were spacious and even better looking than on photos. Two large bedrooms, 1 with double bed and other one with single and double bed. Shower is in the kitchen but don't let this put you off, heating was perfect in the apartment and we liked it there.Dinning room and kitchen were big size too. I found nice bar near apartment, and few food shops. It was very easy to find it from airport, 30min ride on the bus and tram. Julian provided us with free transport tickets during our stay which included rides to airport and to Germany and France by tram(its 10min away frm centre) River is near and beautiful 10 min stroll by river will take you to bridge to old town or you can just take tram. Basel is very expennsive compared to England but it beautiful and worth a visit, I would recommend this apartment to my friends and family

Dear Julian

Thanks that we could stay at your place. For us it was a very warm and welcome place. We feel very comfortable. You didn't change the old character of this cosy place - that's what we like! For some people it might be very unusual that the shower is in the kitchen and the loo on the floor out of the flat, but that's the history of this charming old houses. We spend some beautiful days and we used the well equiped kitchen often times.
