The main problem of this hotel is that you can't open windows in your room, so it might happen that rooms are too warm / stuffy and unfortunatelly with a sensation of fustiness when you get in. Beds are also too hard, in my opinion.

Dear ilariama11 Thank you for your feedback. Most Most of our rooms have windows you can open. When you visit us next time, please ask for a room with windows (river view, courtyard side). Härzlig DASBREITETEAM

We stayed there for one nite because of the easy access into the city (either by tram, but or even walking along the river for one hour). The room are super and the tv has many channels. The room are modern and the bathroom is really cool and big. They had put some shampoo for kids and there was some...

Simple city hotel but perfect! very modern, quiet and clean rooms. Beds are a little bit small but ok. Breakfast is delicious. Very nice staff. Good location for visiting Baselworld (buses and tram are very close by)

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The room was huge and the en suite almost as big as most hotel rooms. Very high tech with electric blinds etc. Wooden floors and very modern decor so does feel a bit cold but I liked it. All staff very friendly and breakfast was very good

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every aspect of the hotel. The breakfast was fantastic - healthy, tasty and full of variety. All the staff we came into contact with were pleasant and efficient. We were offered cups of tea by the receptionist two nights running on our return to the hotel. The rooms are large, clean and uncluttered....

Great location just off motorway but surprisingly quiet once inside. Rooms spacious and scrupulously clean, good breakfast. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Easy transport via tram into the centre from just outside the hotel. Good secure car parking available on site, with direct secure access to the hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again.

We stayed here for one night as we were travelling through Switzerland. The hotel is just off the motorway (but you can't hear it). Parking is very good in a closed, secure garage. Free public transport pass for your stay is great too. Free cake when we got back in from being out in the evening. The best part of...

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. It is a modern, spacious place with great staff.

Note to the wise: bring your own food. Bring your own entertainment. Free public transport is great but all the Basel hotels offer this. To call this basic is to be extravagant. When I asked about food I was told there was water in the room. If there's nowhere else - and you have to be in Basel - it...

Happy to see that the hotel offers you a card valid for all public transport. Fast internet anf outstandingly good breakfast. A perfect business hotel and suited for younger people as well. The rooms were nicely designed but would be too hot to sleep in the summer.
