Hotel Balegra, Basel
Nice neighborhood with easy access to downtown
I found the Hotel Balegra to be clean and comfortable. While the room was not exceptionally large, it was very clean and comfortable and had a nice private deck with seating. The staff members were professional, friendly and more than willing to help with suggestions when asked. I highly recommend the continental style breakfast with wonderful fresh coffee, delicious baked goods, and a nice variety of other items. The location was perfect for me as I was visiting family who live in the neighborhood. Others may like this location to get a feel for one of Basel's more authentic neighborhoods. You can walk to the downtown area (about 15-20 minutes), but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel that will get you there as well. The bus/ tram pass is included. Schützenhaus Park, with a cute little càfe, is about three blocks away. There are several nice restaurants within a short walking distance. I did not have an opportunity to dine at the attached Thai restaurant, but it looked like it would be worth a try. Overall, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

So so
The hotel is good but only problem is, there is no breakfast me at the reception to attend anything. They lock their office. For an early check out I had to pay day before the check out. Room Keys during early check out to be dropped in a box available at the main gate.

Extremely disappointed with the service. We had a lot of expensive equipment in one of our rooms and called to see if it was locked properly. The guy at the front desk said it was and we came back to find the door unlocked. Not ok.
