              The staff were all so courteous, kind and helpful. In the foyer, an iced fruit drink and Basel biscuits, very enjoyable too.

              The hotel restaurant is quite expensive. However, what I had was delicious.

              Good central location with easy connections to Basel sights, friendly and efficient stuff, rich breakfast options, clean premises with good sound isolation, rooms nice and spacious.

              Services overpriced by European standards, but ok for Switzerland.

              Spacy rooms (large windows), reception, corridors etc., nice colours, design, furniture, floor, clean, friendly staff, pleasant buffet breakfast environment, 1 minute to sbb train station, public transport to center and all directions in front of building

              Some noise from public transport in front of building (therefore very convenient to reach museums, like Foundation Beyeler etc.)

            • Older travelers

              In order of preference: the extreme comfort of the beds and bedding; the professionalism of the staff (Reception, Blue Train restaurant); the location of the quieter rooms at the side/rear of the property; the convenience of being at the hub of public transport to/from the city, the EuroAirport and the Train station. The complimentary city- travel pass which we used for a loop-trip on the # 8 Tram for good sight- seeing on a Sunday, also to take the # 50 green EuroAirport bus from the sbb/cff train station next door.

              In order of importance: both my husband and I found it tricky to climb into and out of the bath for a shower as it is higher than the floor level and there is no handy safety bar to grab; had to grab the wall! We are just not used to such high baths and younger/more nimble guests might not find it a problem. Also, it would be nice to have more space for our toiletries bags; the size of the comfort-room-bathrooms would easily accommodate such an addition. A minor point: the minifridge does not accommodate own drinks/food like a lot more hotels nowadays. We used the window ledge...

              The hotel is very luxurious and modern, outstanding for the price we paid. We got a free transport card for the days of our stay, which was great, as the hotel is a bit far from the city center.

              Good breakfast, comfortable rooms.

              Some rooms are very noisey with tram stop outside the window and trams run all night. Request a quite room.
