Stayed here for 2 nights during a business trip to Switzerland. Was surprised at speedy check-in and friendliness of reception staffs. Spacious rooms with all amenities and reasonably priced. Excellent location, close to city centre. We were also offered to use the meeting room free of charge. Highly recommended hotel in Basel.

We didn't eat there so unable to comment on the restaurant. We did get an upgrade to a comfort room free of charge which was very spacious with a bath and...

A friend and I had the pleasure of staying one night (12/13/2016) prior to a river cruise. The room was modern and had all amenities needed. The bed was very comfortable and I awoke energized and ready for more sightseeing. Breakfast was more than satisfactory...so many choices. The front desk staff was very accommodating and readily answered my many questions....

Small hotel which is a good thing. Easy walking to city center, shopping and restaurants. Friendly staff and very helpful. It's close to the street so there is some noise, but that's not their fault. Would recommend and stay again.
