10/10 Exceptional

Wonderful stay in Basel
Friendliest staff, great amenities and very cool rooftop bar. This boutique hotel is quiet despite being on a busy street, well located to good restaurants, bars, the river.

10/10 Exceptional

Great location & calm neutral interior
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel & room. Our check in was very smooth and we loved the small coffee breakout area where we could wait while they sorted out an upgrade of our room. The team kindly offered us an upgrade to a ‘quieter’ room given we were staying over the busy weekend nights. The hotel is situated in a street that gets packed late at night with lots of yelling and music so if that’s something that would annoy you, then this isn’t the spot for you. We appreciated the soundproof doors & aircon though as it really helped when it got loud (even in our ‘quieter’ room it was still busy/loud outside). But the room itself makes up for the loud exterior, it’s a calm haven of soft and neutral tones with a Japandi aesthetic. We first thought the bed would be uncomfortable as it a quite a thin mattress slat style bed but it was surprisingly comfortable once lying on it and it turned out to be one of my favourite beds from our whole trip (4 hotels). I loved that there was a bluetooth sound system in the room - it’s something I wish more hotels have as being able to play your own music totally transforms a space. The service was really friendly and helpful - we had a friend visiting from Zurich one evening for dinner and she forgot her USB charger and the reception team kindly offered to charge her device while we were at dinner. I loved the proximity to the ‘old town’ and the water, as Basel is so small you can walk it all. I would stay here again
Trams are everywhere and so easy! We took the tram to Vitra museum (40 mins)
Many bakeries offering lots of goodies like cheese rolls! (The best!!)
Pretty views
We found great coffee! Head to i favoriti Caffe by Grieder

Great place to stay in Basel.
We stayed one night passing through Basel. The location is great with lots of restaurants around, the front desk staff are the nicest ever and so helpful and the room was clean, comfy, very modern and perfect for our needs. We would definitely stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

This is a new style hotel, with a serious reference to ryokans in Japan. Loved that. The shower was on a smaller size, especially given the category of the room. Amazing sheets of highest quality. The hotel is located on a very busy pedestrian street so opening windows was not an option. The hotel sent me an advance notice about that. With closed windows the room is super quiet. Overall location is great - close to everything and lots of great bars and restaurants just a stonethrow away. Breakfast was not opulent, but the staff at the bar was excellent. Same can be said about the reception. Overall impression - great place, with adequate money for value ratio.

4/10 Fair

Don't recommend for families
This hotel should note in huge bold signs the following: it is located on a pedestrian street so you will NOT be able to pull up with your luggage; and it's located just above several bars so it will be VERY LOUD at night. If you are traveling with children, I would strongly recommend you look elsewhere as they will not be able to sleep with the noise, and you'll have to deal with how to get your luggage and children to the hotel in the first place. We are a family of four people with two young children (aged 4) who traveled from Zurich. Getting to the hotel with our luggage and children in tow was the first challenge. Second challenge was the partying downstairs that made it impossible for our kids to sleep, even though we were on the top floor. Third challenge was that there are no sofas/seating areas, even in their biggest suite, so our kids had to sit on the floor to play or color. (There is one desk chair only). Fourth challenge was that our room was not quite clean - we found random hairs and dustballs in the bathroom and shower, and the floor was dusty, which was extra annoying since our kids had no choice but to sit on the floors to play since there are no sofas/seating. Overall, would say this is a place for adults only, no families or kids. Also, for the price they were charging (over $600/night), the lack of amenities (breakfast wasn't even included) was pretty atrocious when every other hotel in town will offer breakfast with the rate for half the price.

Great stay and would definitely return. Very central location, within 10 mins walk of the station and close to lots of shops, bars and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. We’d also recommend the cocktails at the bar and the Sicilian pop up restaurant, very delicious.

6/10 Good

Hotel: Positive....Location: Negative
Disappointing neighborhood. When I saw the complimentary earplugs, I knew I had made a mistake. Nice room, lovely staff, copious amenities, but a dismal area of low end restaurants/bars (burgers/pizza) and noise, often loud drunks. Views were ugly and early mornings were the clang of delivery and garbage trucks. Also, the A/C ventilation system didn't seem to work. We were told it takes 20 minutes to turn on, which is ridiculous, and it never did, so nights were stuffy. I wish I had stayed at an older hotel up the hill in Altstadt. However, if you are a drinker/alcoholic, the free minibar will make your day. The street honestly reminded me an aspect of America I wish to leave far behind when I come to Europe.
