Hotel is located right across from SBB Train Station and the Tram station is on the opposite side. The Bus to the Airport stops right outside SBB which made it very easy to get to the airport with my luggage and avoid paying the approx. 47.00 Swiss Francs which I had previously paid a few months ago the last time I was in Basel. Airport by bus was only 15 minutes. Extremely convenient!!
Rooms were "OK" though bathroom was extremely small (I guess normal for Europe). Breakfast was good and the guys in the reception and Breakfast areas were very friendly and helpful. My room was at the end of a short hallway, in the back where it was extremely quiet and I was happy I did not hear the Trams go by in the middle of the night. If you are planning to stay here ask for a quiet room (you won't get a good view, but you will be able to get some sleep. Those Trams can get kind of loud).
There is a Coop Supermarket right downstairs and the hotel fills the room mini-fridge every other day at no charge to guests which was great.
I would definitely stay here again in the future. I had a very pleasant stay here.
