"We checked into the hotel just for an overnight stay as we were passing through Basel and only had 1 day to spend there. When checking in the lady at reception (Farah) was amazingly helpful with everything. I have to say Farah went out of her way to make us feel welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. She even told us that the hotel had an extra stroller which we could borrow for when we went exploring Basel, this came is very handy with our Daughter as we were walking around alot the next day. Cannot recommend enough. "

"Very modern hotel in good location ( a few tram stops to the centre). Most comfortable hotel bed I have ever experienced and very good buffet breakfast included in the modest room price. Staff were exceptionally helpful and all amenities were excellent. In short you will not find better for the price in Basel."

"Why we booked this hotel? Pool. Most disappointing: Pool. Room Service overpriced. No Bathropes in the room so how do you get to the pool? Hotel is in CH but lockers in pool area only work with 1,- EUR to lock the things you brought because of no bathropes. Oh bathropes can be picked up at the reception is what the pool staff said. Cold water, no warm jaccuzi or anything like it. Seems it's open to public because pool was crowded. Lot of noise on sunday morning from moving furniture on the floor above. 2hs early check in charge: 40.- CHF same surcharge as when checking in at 8am..."

"Arriving at Basel Station, this Hotel is easily reached up footsteps at the end of platform 16/17 and then turning left on the bridge. Even better, there are tram-stops opposite the Hotel which link you to the city centre and the outlying hilly areas of Basel, the complimentary travel card meaning you can visit them as much as you like during your stay. It was lovely to return each day in late July from the outside heat to an air-conditioned room and have a refreshing shower before dropping off to sleep on the comfortable bed. Building works were going on outside the room but the double glazing meant there was no disturbance."
