Superb 9.0 From 252 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice Accommodation!
This hotel is nice and in a very central location. The room was slightly on the small and minimalist side, which was fine for what I needed it for. Only things to be aware of is that there is that the wall between the bedroom and shower is glass so you can look straight in, although there is a curtain on the bedroom side to cover it and after I showered in the morning the room started to have a slight sewage smell.

Good 6.0
Location was great! Staff was helpful but the room was not so clean and did not get room cleaned the whole time we were there 2 days. Also wanted a drink at the bar but no bartender, so front desk did the best they could. Gym was great. Bed was comfortable.

I am happy to recommend this hotel. The staff are extremely pleasant and very helpful and the location is first rate - just a few minutes walk from the centre of Basel.

A comfortable stay
it was a good hotel - comfortable and big rooms, nice shower and bathroom. All I can ask for. Didn't have breakfast there, so couldn't comment on that. The parking is pretty much next door and was paid. Stay again - Yes, without any second thoughts.

Great Boutique hotel
Great boutique hotel that will shame luxury hotels like Hilton & Marriott's with quality of amenities, in fact one of the few best boutique hotels we have come across while traveling to Europe on various trips over past few years; close proximity to many restaurants, Starbucks, tramlines and about 10-12 mins walk from Basel SBB train station. Will definitely stay here again.
