Wonderful staff; major inconveniences.
It was a warm Friday night so we had to leave the large windows open for ventilation. Unfortunately, there was a noisy bar crowd in the plaza below. Also, we arrived with a car, and the website said "Self parking costs CHF 18.00 per night". There was no mention of reserving a parking space early because they have very limited spaces at this site. The CHF 18 lot was at another hotel 3 miles away and a tram ride back...on a rainy night after a long day of traveling. Not pleased that this had not been disclosed accurately.

Good choice
All very functional. Nice newer hotel with welcoming and helpful staff. A small hotel in a good downtown location. Will be back.

We enjoyed our room and the staff was helpful. Fortunately we weren't affected by the street walkers who hung out by the back entrance of the hotel.

Good hotel, neighborhood is a little dodgy
I have nothing negative to say about the hotel itself -- friendly front desk staff, location close to the downtown area, clean and modern. My biggest issue with this hotel is the neighborhood. Basel has a few areas of the city where "ladies of the evening" are allowed to operate, and Hotel Balade is in one of those areas. I could not go out of my room for more than five minutes without being solicited, even right outside the hotel's front door. Even at 11am they were out and being rather aggressive. While I certainly did not feel unsafe, they were a bit of a bother. While it is not the hotel's fault, I probably would not stay here again if I ever go back to Basel.

Great hotel..on the edge of the red light district
Hotel Balade was a great hotel!. The service, cleanliness, and quality were all top notch. It was only a block away from a tram stop and about a 10 minute walk to the conference center (I was there on business). Also, in great proximity to the river and lots of restaurants. My only complaints: We got a triple room. But it was basically just a double room with a cot. I know this because one of the people I was staying with had a double room to himself the night before and said it was no bigger. Therefore, I dont think they should charge extra if all you are going to get is a cot. My other complaint didnt really bother me but just want to make some people aware. As other reviewers have stated this hotel is right on the edge of the red light district. There were typically 5-10 "women of the night" (Hotels.com wont let me use the correct term) hanging around the hotel all day, every day. For the most part they were respectful but did approach us on a few occasions. I dont know the rules about prostitution in Basel so maybe the hotel cant do anything about it but it would be nice if they would contact the police to run them off. Like I said it didnt bother me but it could bother others.
