On the river, close to old town
Room comfy if not small. No aircon, but small fan was provided as it was quite warm late Sept. Great to have onsite parking, tho' it was very limited and we needed to jockey around for positions with the hotel manager to get a place to park. Very close to walk to 'old city', but the free Basel transit pass made it easy to travel around the city and get discounts on museum fees. We traveled out of the city to the Augustus Romanica roman ruins, a very worthwhile tripl
