    The hotel is located only a short walk to Marktplatz. Rooms are big and clean and the hotel is overall good value for money.

    We loved the location of the hotel. Walking distance from the town and easy access to trams, trains, etc... The stay came with breakfast each morning. The room was very cozy, quiet and clean. Really enjoyed ourselves. We would go back!

    Very good

    Location Free tram pass included (though this is apparently standrd in all Basel hotels) 2 min walk from tram stop Sound of the Spalenbrunnen fountain at night (after the trams stop)

    All-pervasive smell of Indiam cooking from the restaurant Failure to give us an alarm call as requested at 06.30 on our last morning. We might have missed our train

    Fabulous

    It is a very comfortable hotel and it is easy to get to by tram 3 to Universitat stop, the hotel is opposite. I was very pleased to be given a free ticket for all trams and buses for the duration of my stay.

    However the room was very oldfashioned it was very clean. The location of the hotel is perfect to visit Basel.

    The hotel staff is really hard to find. There was a persisting smell of smoke in the hall, in the corridor and in the restaurant, where the breakfast is served, but not in the room. The breakfast is nothing special. Please be careful: the hotel has a basement, in which there is a tipically "Night Bar". The entrance of the hotel and of the the "Night Bar" is the same. It could be that you meet some customers of the Night bar in the hall or in the corridor of the hotel. We didn't expect to find this "setting" for a 150,- chf room...we really didn't appreciate that...

    Superb

    The hotel is close to the University and city transportation. We were greeted with a map of Basel and a map of the subway system, so we could get anywhere. We could walk to many things we wanted to see. Management was friendly and helpful.

    Free parking, which was why we chose this otherwise terrible hotel.

    Breakfast was awful, with yesterday's croissants, eggs you have to boil yourself and weird sheets hung around the room.

    Good

    Parking available. Better than average breakfast buffet.

    Aroma of food cooked in the restaurant permeated the hotel. Decor is a little dated, but this is a minor complaint.

    Good

    I was traveling with my 3 almost adult sons. We stayed in a room with four single beds and a small bathroom. The breakfast was included and was very good. We were close to a very good public transport system and were given tickets by the hotel which gave us free public transport within the city during our stay.

    It was very hot in the room-we were there in July. We did work out how to open the windows wider which helped but it was also very noisy as the tram line was in the street below. The room decor was pretty tired and the bathroom small.

    Fabulous

    Die Lage ist perfekt für einen Kurzaufenthalt in Basel. Man kann zu Fuss oder auch mit dem Tram und Bus bequem in die Innenstadt fahren.

    Das Einchecken verlief etwas langsam, da zuerst unsere Reservation nicht gefunden wurde und dann auch ein Schlüssel zu einem der Zimmer fehlte. Erster Eindruck war dadurch schon mal negativ.

    Fabulous

    Grosses Zimmer, einfach aber praktisch ausgestattet, altmodisch (aber irgendwann werden die hypermodernen Hotels ja auch langweilig).

    Frühstück etwas "elementar", Bedienung nicht sehr freundlich. Schade.
