                      Firstly the staff - everyone was so pleasant and helpful - we felt at home immediately. Our rooms were very comfortable, the balcony was great, the cleaning staff did a great job - and the coffee machine was much appreciated! Breakfast each morning was a great start to our day. My husband and I plan to come back to Basel in 2013 and I will be booking with you again.

                      best service/information at the reception. Good breakfast.

                      room for 3 persons. te couchbed was terrible, Bad matras and lot of noise.

                      Location, hotel staff, the free bar downstairs and the garden.1

                      Everything was great, except once I came at 3:30 am and the hotel was closed, so it took them 30sec to open for me; the tv holder in the room made some stretching noises sometimes; also I got room on the "noisy street" side, but with the window closed it's not loud.

                      A good breakfast was included in the tariff, and bottles of water were handed out as you left in the morning. This, plus the gift of Occitane body cream, were nice touches although no doubt well and truly covered by the steep room rate.

                      The hotel was presumably exploiting the ArtBasel event on that week but, even so, the tariff was extremely high for the type of room on offer which was comfortable enough but very small, reminding me of university accommodation. It was also very hot and the window could not be opened .. nor could the door without blowing shut or letting the rain in! The bathroom was minute and the washbasin located in the bedroom area. The front desk staff on checking in were excellent; on checking out they argued about a component of the bill -it was a matter of too bad "We have already deducted this from your card".

                      Arrived at 10-15 a.m after a very early start from London, room was ready, although rather small! Charming staff spoke good English , hotel a short walk from major city sights,and opposite bus stop from station, when showing reservation at airport you can travel for free and hotel will then provide a further pass for use on all public transportation for the duration of your stay. pleasant garden,where you can enjoy a complimentary drink.

                      The small bedroom and very small bathroom

                      Room at the back was quite peaceful, even with window open. Front would be noisy because of main road. Welcome drinks downstairs, or in peaceful back garden with water feature, can be taken anytime, not just on arrival -included wine, juice or coffee. Breakfast was good - choice of breads, cheeses, meats, Bircher muesli, Yoghurt, fresh fruit, cakes.

                      We got lost trying to find the hotel on foot from the station, although it's not far. In fact it's one stop on the bus number 30. It would have been useful to have known this in advance. Room was quite small, and the bed lacked headboards.They lose "green points", in my view, for changing the towels everyday -no option to indicate you don't want them changed, which many hotels have these days.

                      Best little hotel ever! Funky decor, comfy beds and perfectly clean. Generous breakfast and a lovely terrace to relax on with coffee/apero in the afternoon. Perfectly located to enjoy Basel.

                      Rooms might be a little small for a longer stay but fine for a short trip (even with child).

                      The staff is helpful and accommodating to requests. They spontaneously offer options such as baggage storage or complimentary water for departing guests. The complimentary welcome drink is nice and the breakfast service is good too. Internet worked correctly. From outside, hotel is not impressive, but interior is well maintained and rooms, while small, are clean and very functional.

                      Parking on street is not readily available. Parked car in public garage adjacent to hotel for 15 francs (but is secure and easily accessed). Rated hotel fair value because it's expensive compared to similar properties in other areas of Europe - but for Basel appears to be good value. I obtained better prices from Booked.net than were available at the hotel.

                      Good welcome Openbar with wine and snacks coffee and tea to welcome guests. A surprising and generous gift in the room.

                      Single room is a little small but very well laid out Price of room was jacked up wildly because of the watch and jewellery fair in Basel where all the rooms are full. This seems a rip off. Taxi and restaurant prices remain as before so why should the hotels go into this auction mode?

                      Cleanliness was impeccable.

                      The bed mattress could have been a little more comfortable.
