            although the staff was very nice and helpful - breakfast options/ variety was limited

            • Average rating
          • Couple

            Although not that easy to find, the hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was satisfactory and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I got the impression that they genuinely were interested in our well-being and not just reluctantly doing a job, as experienced in other hotels.

            No air-conditioning.

            very clean room - everything provided - ac could be turned off

            located at large street but traffic drops to almost zero after 9 pm, so no problem

            Nice breakfast, nice room and nice staff

            No a/c when I read rooms had air conditioning, they need to remodel rooms and bathrooms....

            Good value by Basel standards. Decent breakfast. Good location short walk away from bridge into old town.

            Noise from street (traffic, trams) was not ideal. BBC channels listed on TV guide were not actually available.

            The hotel is based in the centre of Basel, which makes it perfect for a trip to the region. I stayed there to visit the Vitra Campus and for that purpose it was perfect. My room was very clean, but missed airconditioning or even a small fan. Since I stayed in a room at the top floor, right beneath the ceiling facing the sun, it was like spending some time in a tiny sauna for a few days.

            Staying in the hotel is very expensive, but that is supposed to be normal in Switzerland. The breakfast was ok, but nothing more than that and certainly not a "rich buffet breakfast".

            breakfast was nice. the hotel was very close to the Art convention center.

            it was not possible to have wireless internet in my room, and I had to pay for the internet, though I thought it was included.

            Very close to my meeting

            Noisy, too spartan and very expensive for what was available

            • Average rating
          • Single

            The room rate was reasonable and the breakfast was fine.

            There was no AC in the room and the only window in the room leads to a veranda, which was shared with next door rooms. Hence, I could not open it during the night for the security reason and as a reasult the room got too warm to sleep. Also, if you do not have the Swisscom subscription, you may find difficult to get the wifi connection in the room. The hotel was also bit far from the city centre though if you want to be closer to the Messe or the DB station, it is convenient.

            Internet availability within room. Coffee-making facilities within room.

            Room was very smokey even though it was a non-smoking room. The noise insulation between rooms is inadequate such that sounds (tv, snoring, telephone conversations, etc.) can be heard very easily.

            Lovely front desk staff and good breakfast. Very convenient for trams and conference centre.

            My room was at the front and there was some traffic noise- I would go back but request a room at the back.

            The hotel was very clean and convenient for transport links.

            The breakfast whilst included was not a particularly high standard. There was a choice but not good quality produce.
