              One of the friendliest welcomes from the reception staff I have received from any hotel. The hotel has modern rooms that are well appointed, exceptionally clean and quiet. Located in a central location with easy access to the tram system and main station.

            • Single
              8.2

              The Hotel is very well located right next to the Railway station and quite a few restaurants of different sorts. The atmosphere is quite good, and the price definitely reasonable compared to hotels in the area. Breakfast is extensive, the room well equipped and the shower very nice. The minibar items were included!

              Internet is not included, the location of this room was in front of an area with waste containers which were emptied at 6AM... the noise woke me up and lasted for a while, not very nice.

              Localisation and friendly staff

              Room rate is too high and not in accordance with the comfort

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This is an elegantly appointed hotel in keeping with its 4*rating. The room was quite luxurious and comfortably furnished, the bathroom was of a good size and the breakfast in the beautifully decorated dining room was more than adequate. The location is perfect being right near the sbb entrance and it is within easy walking distance to the old town. If walking isn't for you, then the trams are right there too.

              I found it strange that one had pay for wi-fi after 20 minutes of use but one could consume the contents of the mini bar free of charge.

              Location in central Basel. Also, very nice breakfast buffet

              Rooms were noisy; I could hear the person in the next room coughing and sneezing.

            • Single
              8.8

              The corner room with balcony which we asked for and the beautiful breakfast room. A lovely smart hotel.

              It didn't bother us but the trams would disturb light sleepers, starting about 05.30am

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The size of the room (comfort twin), the two ensuite bathrooms, the service and the location

              The room was too hot
