Poor 2.0
Terrible Service - Avoid!!
When I booked this hotel at a cost of 770 CHF for two nights (thats £600), I had high hopes. The checking was really good and friendly. My hopes were dashed upon entering the room. The decor was like something you would find in a care home. Granted the bathroom had been refurbished but the room was not what I would expect for this money. On checkin I was told the mini bar was free. I was disappointed to find that the water had not been restocked on the second night. I had received an invite to provide feedback by a portal linked to the hotel so I politely voiced my dissatisfaction and went to bed. 20-30 minutes later I had an angry call from a hotel staff member asking (Shouting I should add), What was wrong with the bar? Tired, I explained that I was not interested in a discussion as I was going to sleep. The man then shouted ... “No, you no go to sleep!! You answer the question as you complain three times”. No if their survey tool sends an email for each dissatisfied answer that is not my issue. But to feel threatened in a hotel that I am paying a lot of money for is a disgrace. I am a big guy but so threatened I actually placed the luggage rack just in front of the door before going to sleep - this would give me prior warning of anyone trying to come in at night. I voiced my complaint at the desk on checkout but did not have time to stick around and run through everything that happened. Suffice to say, the hotel never made contact.

Great hotel in Basel Switzerland
The people that worked at the hotel were so very friendly. They went above and beyond. This hotel is in a great location and they gave us a card that we could catch the buses and trams and ride for free. They had a very nice breakfast with lots of choices. Liked the shampoos and toiletries that they provided. Also had a small refrigerator that was stocked with bottles of water, juice, soda and a beer that were free of charge. I would definitely stay here anytime that I was in Basel.

A Gem!
Excellent hotel located just 2 min walk from SBB Basel. The receptions were really helpful. We enjoyed our three breakfast there, our morning chat with Luca in particular. I think Gaia as a whole is very true to its motto -Come as a guest and leave as a friend. We will certainly choose Gaia for our next trip to Basel.

Next to main train station for airport bus , tram stop and supermarket. You would expect this to be noisy however it isn't. This meant it was really easy to get to and around Basel.
