Charmer near train station
Charming hotel in great location and lovely service. Only issue for some people would be the stairs. Would absolutely stay here again!

Very good 8.0
Great staff, inadequate air conditioning
The staff here is truly wonderful, always trying to be helpful and welcoming. In fact, they may be the best overall staff I've ever encountered in a hotel (and I travel a lot). But the hotel itself has a few issues. In its quest for environmentalism, it does sacrifice comfort. My issues were that the beds are futon-like, and not that comfortable. The pillows are so massive I could not sleep without straining my neck. And most significantly for me, the air conditioning is questionable. I'm used to the American approach to room temperature, which is about 70 degrees F year-round. On my visit here, it was 68 degrees outside, but over 80 degrees in the room. Even with the windows open, the room never fully cooled down. We were switched to another room, which had two levels. The lower level / sitting area had great air conditioning, but there was no air conditioning on the upper level where the bedroom and bathroom were. Would I stay here again? Yes, but not in the summer.

Excellent stay, great location, friendly vibe
I was very happy here. The hotel was steps from the train station, but quiet in the evenings. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Room was cute, with a bit of a “groovy” color scheme. Some interesting local items in the (free!) minibar. Bathroom was sparkling clean. Bathrobes were a nice touch. WiFi was good. The general vibe of the place seemed to be that they wanted you to enjoy your stay. Breakfast was delicious and in a gorgeous dining room. Easy walk to tourist sites, or take the nearby tram. Great for train travelers.

Best service and hospitality in Basel
After staying at a number of other hotels in Basel, I decided to try Hotel Gaia. This is by far my favorite hotel in the city. What is exceptional about this hotel is their service and hospitality in all aspects - from the front desk to the restaurant to housekeeping. They anticipated my needs and did many little things to make my stay comfortable and relaxing and my trip easy.
