Rooms are small but service is great. Unfortunately the building across the street burned down recently which left an unpleasant smell in some rooms.

Unique Hotel
We stayed in Basel for a few days on our way from the US to Africa. The hotel was comfortable with a unique style and very clean. The staff was very accommodating to any of our needs. Everyone spoke English. We would stay here again for the location, the staff & comfort, and the character.

Comfortable room. Front desk very helpful with arrival and departure. Location was great! Walk across river bridge to old town. The light rail was a stone’s throw away. Took to museum and train station. We had a view of the river which made the location even better. The only negative was the bar and breakfast buffet prices. The bar was pricier than others. The breakfast buffet was also pricy, 20 euro/person for cold buffet.

Going to Basel? This is the hotel to stay in
I’ve stayed here before so I got an upgrade. The service is amazing and if you’re staying in Basel you should be staying here.
