As an infrequent business traveler to Basel, I have relied on the company preferred hotels for my stays there. However, for my last trip, as all of these hotels were booked, I was fortunate enough to find accommodation at the Apartments Spalenring 10. The booking process was very simple and the instructions that were sent to me regarding connecting with Marcus, my host, were very straightforward and clear. My advice is that you pay attention to these instructions. Markus is extremely charming and welcoming. The studio I had rented for my three day stay is perfectly located 1/2 way between the central train station and the airport and public transportation is just across the street. The studio had everything I could want and was exceptionally clean and neat. The kitchen was fully stocked should I have wanted to cook my own meals. Two grocery stores are within a block or so of the apartments. The bed was comfortable and there is TV and internet service. Although the building is an older building, my stay there met all my needs for being quiet, clean and convenient. The bonus was the service provided to me by Marcus. My major form of communication with him was via texting and email. His response time is noteworthy and so appreciated. He even went out of his way to figure out how to get a forgotten item to me after I had returned to the U.S. I left feeling good about having stayed there and I would definitely use those accommodations again.
