This hotel is located just above Basel's old town. A 5 minute walk sees you in the heart of things. The hotel is comprised of an older looking building and a more modern annex, where we stayed. The rooms in the annex are very new,...More
Historical building (note this means lifts are a bit of a mysterious business) set around a pleasant courtyard, within walking distance of the main sites and close to public transport. Room was large with a huge bathroom. Overall the decor is a little tired and...More

We were in town for a meeting and only booked one night. The price was very reasonable for Basel, and the location was excellent - within walking distance of the heart of Basel and very conveniently located on the 11 tram line from the SBB...More
Stayed just one night at start of our holiday. Hotel is only 15 mins taxi ride from airport which cost about 32 francs. Great breakfast too and very helpful staff. Very handy for city centre and justva stones throw from the Rhine.

Hi. I'm sorry for not seeing your quesiton earlier. No there isnt a shuttleto the hotel, but at the airport there is a tram directly outside. It will take you into the city area for free (as long as you hold onto your boarding pass). You need to change trams with the scond one dropping you off about 200 metres fron the hotel. The tram system is very easy to negotiate.
The hotel will provide you with public transport free passes to use whilst you stay at the hotel, so you wont pay for any public transport.
The Viking terminal is about a fifteen minute easy walk along the river.
A great hotel with a really good breakfast as well.
Hope this helps :)

There was an elevator that I saw in the main building and there was an elevator in the newly refurbished building. I am not sure how we lucked out and got the newly refurbished building with a huge room and luxury bathroom, but we certainly enjoyed it. They didn't charge us anything extra either. So, I would ask nicely for a room in the new building and stand your ground on the price. You are three blocks in either direction from restaurants. If you go up the hill the restaurants are better. Down the hill the restaurants are more middle of the road.
