One night stay after end of Rhine cruise
Everything was perfect, the only exception being the noise level: temporary construction across the street on one side and tram system with sweeping wheels or brakes on the other. The staff has been exceptional. Very friendly and service minded.

Retro chic hotel in the city square
Beautiful hotel with tall ceilings, above and beyond service in the perfect location on the main square in Basel. The only issue was our room had a few stairs between the bedroom area and the bathroom, and my wife took a spill late at night.
