This is a very good B&B. It is a bit out of the centre of Basel, but the tram takes you there rather easily, and you get a free public transport card anyway when staying in a hotel in Basel.
We had two double rooms, they were very light and airy, and has everything one needs. The house itself has a good atmosphere. The breakfast is very good. There is a very nice garden and a great terrace (so also good for those who still smoke).
The biggest asset is undoubtedly the host, she is extremely welcoming and hospitable, and will get out of her way to arrange things for you; in fact she arranged for my son's "lost" watch to be home delivered after our return; and always spotted a caffeine-deficit in need of replenishment.
What could be improved is the common bathroom: It is on itself good, but the toilet is together with the bath, so one cannot really take a bath since one would occupy the toilet too long for other guests. Also, I did not like the pillow, but I am very particular about that; and prefer a more dark room but again that is me.
For us it was not a problem at all, but if you do not like dogs this is not a place for you (even if it is only 1, it is rather present). Also, you have to be able to climb stairs in the house (but there is also a small studio where it is not necessary) and from the tram to the house, which was ok with us but perhaps not for other visitors.
I (and my husband, son, mother) would definitely like to stay here again!
