“No breakfast not included :-(”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

17 euro is a lot when you only want a cup of coffee and a bagel, even in Eu. Other than that, a VG hotel. Staff was very friendly and gave us a fan. Our room in the back of the hotel wasn't AC. Very nice restraunts when you turn right out of the hotel. As mentioned by other reviewers, the tram is a short walk and you can easily get anywhere in Basel with their system. Only stayed 2 nights to begin our European trip.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Only spent two nights here as a stop over at the start of our holiday.
The hotel is basic and is fine for a few nights stay as it is a little out of the way of the main area.
The tram stops less than 5 mins walk away and will take you into the main part of town / old town.
Breakfast i would say was poor and there was little or nothing to chose from.(Not as if we came down late to eat)!!
Reception nice and staff are friendly.

This hotel has been recently renevated to an adequate standard in a nice location in Basel. Short distance into the town with frequent tram services less than a 2 minute walk away.
Staff are approachable with any issues that may/may not arise during your stay
Rooms do have air conditioning which is an added bonus and the staff also provide a lovely continental breakfast

I was lucky enough to be paying apx £65 per night but on some occasions I have seen it as much as 200 per night for a single room. It was clean, if a bit dusty, the bed was comfortable and the room had air conditioning and a mini fridge. On the downside the Internet connection was slow, I was unable to stream Netflix or even FaceTime my boyfriend.

If cool is your priority then great but if you like to be connected then the nearby easyHotel is a better bet.
Would use again if the price was right p.

Room Tip: 146 has a bath

This has always been the hotel of choice for Art Basel every June. This year I only spent 2 nights here as we had an apartment for the other nights.

The room I had this year (114) was larger than before we not so much wasted space like my previous rooms had.

Always very clean and everything works perfectly. The breakfast is very good and plentiful.

As with the rest of Basel this hotel is not cheap but it's location almost opposite Messe platz makes it ideal

One of those hôtels you might not find easy unless you want to go to one of the trade shows very nearby. However, it is worthwile and correctly priced outside the faire dates. It s a short and convenient tram ride from the Basel Train Station (Swiss) or almost walking distance from the German Train Station (Badischer Bahnhof).
Choose the rooms away from the street as the tram starts moving at around 6 am.

Room Tip: No Fitness, wi - fi yes, usually at no charge.

Others have compared this hotel to a hostel and after staying for a couple of nights it's clear why, it certainly has a hostel feel to it. That said it was clean and the room was spacious (I had a business room) and was very quiet. Having said that the hotel is pretty basic, with few niceties.

Room Tip: The room at the back of the hotel was very quiet overnight.
