You had to keep the windows closed because of the noise at night. And it was very warm without the windows open

We had a wonderful stay and would especially like to express our gratitude to Patrick for his outstanding, helpful service in helping us find a lost cellphone in our room. We thought it was lost forever and with his experience we were overjoyed that he found it behind a table. The entire desk staff is very friendly and could answer all my our questions. We were also able to make arrangements to check in since we arrived after 11:00 pm and that was very much appreciated. We would and will recommend your hotel to others traveling to this area. Thank you SO much for making our stay wonderful. Mike & Gloria Fluet

Large and clean.
Booked a room for three and got a great apartment with a full size kitchen. It was large and fairly modern. It was an 8 minute walk to the old town area- good location as long as you keep your bedroom window closed so you don’t hear the all night night chatter across the street where a few prostitutes appear to work. The neighborhood did seem fairly safe and clean for families though.

Good hotel and easy location for central and old town.

Cosy business hotel close to the city center
The hotel was overall nice and i'd go back again. I had a good view from my window, the lake / oldtown is close, and thay gave me a Basel-ticket which offers free public transport during my stay. There was mineral water, tea and instant coffee (even decaf) prepared in my room. There was also a mini-fridge, which can be handy if you wake up late (like I do) to have breakfast, but want to have probiotic yoghurt ready to start the day. I gave a neutral score for the local area, as after sunset the street behind the hotel was full of hookers and they follow you like zombies - it's not the hotel's fault though. Overall, I can recommend it, it has a good price/value ratio.

Fair 4.0
Noisy, no AC, and not the best neighborhood.
The staff were very nice and the hotel was nice inside, and a short walk to old town. However the rooms are not air conditioned and we had to leave the windows open. There are several bars in the neighborhood that were very noisy and we didn’t sleep at all. Also, apparently the red light district of Basel is on the next street over. Several of the ladies were very pushy as we were walking along. I wouldn’t stay here again.

Poor stay.
Hotels need night staff. This hotel has none. Elevators need to be inside the main hotel lobby, not in a stairwell which looks like a garage. To many you women loitering near the hotel area. Down dingy side streets. Overall, a poor stay; though the staff were nice.

Clean and Comfortable
This was a nice hotel for the price, clean and comfortable. There was a fair in town that was right across from the hotel which made for very noisy evenings. Not the hotels fault but unpleasant none the less.
