Dear Mr. L I truly regret that you found our hotel overpriced. Referring to our conversation during your stay, we have a very busy season in town due to citywide conventions.

Clean and well presented room. Comfortable bed and powerful rain shower. Included city pass was good for the room temperature was way too warm. Noisy A/C didn't help but for the price, you really can't complain. By far the best value thing we bought in Basel.
