Lots of windows...NO VIEW!!!!!!
Room was good. Room #003 would have been AWESOME IF we had been able to enjoy the 40 feet of windows that ran the length of the room. Our view was of a business school and the students working on their computers had a perfect bird's eye view into our room. Couldn't even use at night BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING TO SEE! !!!!! Except for that part, the room was actually pretty nice. We didn't book the room to spend the day looking out the window, although a view of the Christmas markets would have been nice in the evening. No phone in room, but we didn't need it, thank God. Front desk located in lobby area that serves triple duty as a bar, breakfast nook and hotel lobby. Weird but functional. Overall, I will stay again should I return to Basel for the. Christmas markets. Just not room 003.

Good 6.0
Inexpensive but Sparse
Fabulous location! Christmas market RIGHT outside the front door. A 2nd one a short walk away. Tram stop across the plaza. Rooms are spacious, but have VERY little furniture. A bed, 2 small bedside tables,1 chair with a 3rd small table. No mini-fridge. No phone. No coffeemaker. No individual toiletries. Staff are pleasant but not very friendly, and offer a minimum of information. We arrived early & our room wasn't ready, so we decided to wait in the lobby...which is filled with lounging chairs. There's a bar, but no one was working it. I stood there for quite awhile before anyone came over to take my order. We ordered a cappuccino, a soda and 2 muffins for a rather pricey 25Fr. The guy completely forgot to bring the muffins & after 20-30 minutes, I had to ask a 2nd employee. Later that afternoon, when we brought our Christmas market food into the hotel lobby, (because there was no where to eat in the room) one short swarthy male with facial hair made a scene! (Apparently, the entire hotel lobby is the bar.) Instead of discreetly letting us know outside food wasn't allowed, he loudly pronounced to the entire lobby! Attempting to shame the guests is not great customer service! Then, after all that, he ended up telling us to stay. So why bother to make a scene in the first place? Not even 10 minutes later, 2 other people walked in with food & he never said one word to them! I'd research other hotels before staying here since it's so bare-bones.

Great hotel, friendly, perfect location!
The hotel was great! The staff are very friendly. They give you a card which gives you free public transport plus half price off lots of attractions in and around the city. The rooms were nice, clean and sound proof - we couldn't hear anyone else. We didn't eat or drink anything at the hotel since the location is so central, you're right in the middle of everything so it's easier to go find somewhere. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
