Very Good8.0
Good value for a quick visit to Basel.
Very good for a quick business trip to Basel. It is nice. Free welcome drink and decent room that was quiet. The bathroom is small, but that is part of the deal. Strange, but fully functional closet for clothes. Very nice staff. I did not have the breakfast. The location is very central. 15 minutes to train station, 5 minutes to City Center and the Tram Hub. Big underground parking lot (paid) across the street. Good restaurants, cafes and bars all around. Basel is my favorite city in Switzerland. Great mix of tradition and modern culture and style. Two very good museums: Kunstmuseum and Foundation Beyeler, plus many nice smaller museums. Very nice Christmas Market.

We loved the staff, the room was clean and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable. The shower and bathroom were large and modern. We really enjoyed the happy hour in the garden downstairs.

Highly recommended!
Amazingly unexpected!! I'm a Platinum SPG and Marriott, and was definitely impressed with the level of service and quality of this hotel. Since there weren't any SPG's, Marriott, Hilton, Fairmont, Hyatt, and IHG brands in the area, I used to find a higher rated hotel. I definitely wasn't disappointed this time around. Great staff, Great hospitality, Great area, smaller but comfortable room, and an absolutely amazing shower -- hands down best of any hotel in the world that I have stayed at. Conveniently located for return 'free' bus ride back to airport. Awesome!
