      Very friendly and helpfull staff!! The man at the reception spoke very good German, French and English! I had asked for a quiet room when I made the reservation and I got one. Also very nice was the free public transport ticket for my whole stay of five days! The room was basic, but had the necessary comfort and was very clean. The bed was large and the matrass medium hard.

      Unfortunately there was no airconditioning in the room, which was on the quiet side but that was also the sunside... It was constantly very hot and uncomfortable in the room. The breackfast was limited, but good. It would have been nice if there would be some yoghurt or fresh fruit. The (free) wireless internet connection never worked in the room, if you want to surf you have to do it in the lobby, which isn't equiped for computer use (small table, low chairs).

      Clean, comfortable rooms, excellent location, helpful staff.

      The hotel is very dated and gloomy, in desperate need of refurbishment. Breakfast can also be improved upon.

      The place is very close to the Basel Messe, which was the main reasaon of my visit. I had the single room which is very small, but clean.

      The price is rather high with respect to the size and confort of the room.

    • Single

      I lived in an advanced single room. It is quite clean and comfortable. The hotel is well located and the tram 14, 15 and 6 are just in front of the hotel.

      The Wifi is not available at all in my room and it is not improved during my stay at the hotel.

      Staff were excellent. Very helpful and friendly. Breakfast available from 6.30am. Close to conference centre - could get there from my room in less than 5 minutes.

      Sink had only one tap which produced hot water.

      Wonderful and lovely staff ! The rooms are comfy if not lux. Great connection to the city with public transport.

      Nothing as such. Yes, Got one... No air-conditioner in some rooms. In summer can be sweltering !

      It was very clean and it was well comunicated with the city, the train is right next to it. And also it's only 20min away (walking) to get to downtown. The WiFi connection works very well.

      Breakfast included was poor. Since I was traveling alone, my room was very small which was not a problem but there were not enough plugs, if I wanted to charge my cellphone I'd have to unplug the tv, because there was only one.

      Excellent value for money and with easy access to the city centre. We were in the city visiting family and will definitely be staying here again. Breakfast good and fresh, although simple.
