Great little cation in downtown Basel
We stayed thee days on the front end of a cruise on the Rhine. Great location in the middle of the city. We had one of the seven annual autumn fairs in the plaza right in front of the hotel. Great fun. Once in our room, we didn’t hear a thing.

Christmas Market friendly hotel in Basel.
If you want to see the Christmas Markets in Basel, this hotel is right in the middle of them. The room was very quiet and the staff very helpful. This is located in the old town area of Basel and great for visiting tourist sites - all within easy walking distance.
