        Individual guest reviews

        • Couple

          Well centered, very near to the tramway station, quiet, clean and a nice and romantic garden. The part of the hotel named «the residence», separated of the main building is a good deal as you don't hear the noise of the street and feel more intimate.

          the price of the breakfast (CHF 27.-, not included): this would deserve a real expresso machine coffee and fresh orange juice even though there are some good bakery and fried eggs. For this price, I'd rather go to the tea-room next to the hotel.

        • Older travelers

          The location was excellent for a walking/public transportation visit to Basel. The restaurant next door was very good, although in general we found Basel to be more expensive than other Swiss cities or the resort areas. We travel to Switzerland usually once per year for a ski holiday.

          Location was great for what we were doing in Basel.

          Need to do something about the street noise. Trains/Cable Cars are very noisy and run until midnight.

          Breakfast is really good

          I had a double room in La Residence. The room was really small and old fashion. The matras was really thin and when I woke up I had pain in my back. The garage was in another street but with the elevator you came out at the reception. The hotel is hardly reachable by car. The people at the reception could be more friendly (evening and night). Conclusion: for the price, I would advise another hotel.

        • Older travelers

          Lovely, clean room with duvets on the very comfortable bed. Excellent shower, near to shopping and sightseeing.

          For the price and location, this hotel should have air-conditioning. We were awakened at around 3:30am by carousers leaving a local bar. Too hot to close the windows, but when they are closed, very little street noise gets in. If you plan to stay in this hotel, be sure you're on the non-street side of the building. Choose an AC'd hotel if staying between June and August.

          The website said that an extra bed could be added to the room. However, upon check in the type of room wouldnt allow for the extra bed. Luckily the hotel had changed the room to accommodate the extra bed. Thankfully the hotel was pretty empty

          It was definitely too hot and dry in the room and no way to reduce the temperature. We tried to keep the window open but temperature did not reduce at all and the noise from outside was very annoying.

          breakfast too expensive and not included in room, location is a bit out of the way from the attractions, rooms too warm, but that is typically Swiss, so it does not count. No real complaints

          Tea and Coffee facilities appreciated. Free access provided to excellent public transport system, from outside the front door. Quiet and comfortable.

          No airconditioning so the provided fan was valuable. Cannot comment on breakfast as the cost seemed excessive.
