“Excellent for a trip to Basel on a budget”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The easyHotel was easy to find, using the directions given on the website, and located within a reasonable distance of the town centre when using the tram. It was easy to reach whatever destination you wished within the town.
We chose to stay in the "small room - no window" and were happy to find that, although the room was compact, it was nicely furnished and was not too small to be inconvenient. I'd describe it as cosy, but not cramped. The lack of window was not really a problem as the room lights worked fine. The only down side was that it got quite hot overnight therefore if staying in the summer could be a bit of a challenge as I'm not sure if they have air conditioning.
The room and bathroom were clean and tidy. It is to be noted that there was barely any storage facilities (i.e. a couple of coat-hangers and small hanging rail) therefore you had to live out of your suitcase.
Overall I would say this hotel was very good value for money, as far as Swiss prices go, and is ideal for a long weekend trip to Basel. We were very happy with it! Given the room we had, I think a longer stay would require a larger room however.

Room Tip: Absolute budget --> small room + no window (not as bad as it sounds and worth it if you really wa...

Arrive at hotel at 13.30 was told room wouldn't be ready until 15.00. Which I thought fine as I was told rooms were being cleaned . Then when I returned later and was given my room and told I needed to be out of it 10. realise that if my room was ready there was no way I would have been give. It. Because the rooms are so small they could only take 10 minutes at most to clean. It seems this hotel is run by students or very young people who toe the party orange line. Would I ever stay at one of these hotels again never. To call this place a hotel is a joke. It's a small room and that's It no more or no less

we arrived after 9:30 and we had to call the reception ,because
no one was there .
She gave us a piece of paper with code to enter in room ,and some informations about the hotel ,and she disappeared .
Well the room was very very small ( I knew that ) and the
bathroom also !!! with hot water .
Now all the strange things we notice .
NO table ,NO chairs ,NO glasses in the bathroom ,NO closet in the room ,
NO small towel ,we had only one big, NO table on my bed side NO reception at all ,we never saw
this girl again ,NO cleaning ,it was written that every third day
at no extra charge they clean the room .......NOTHING.........
This is unacceptable and happens for first time in my life .
I could say all this to this girl at reception ,but
she was never there .
from Sunday we arrived until Thursday we left,no cleaning.
Why they call this place hotel ?????
I am sorry to right all this but is not fair for customers ,at list you
have to inform them , and at the end to give what you are writing that you
are giving to them.

The Easy Hotel is what you pay and nothing more.
They offer a comfortable bed and also has very good shower facilities as part of the room.

Its not ideal for sharing with mates but good for a single traveler as some rooms have no windows so can get stuffy.

Staff very helpful and efficient.

Walls not very thick and you can hear noise from other rooms.

Choose small or standard size, with or without window for rooms at a range if budget prices. Shower cubicle and loo in a sectioned off area of the room. Functional, basic but comfy bed and good free Internet connection.
Great if you just want somewhere to sleep and wash but don't need fancy add-ons
