East-West Riverside Hotel, Basel
Cool riverfront hotel with buzz-y energy - love
I'm a New Yorker in my early thirties who likes hotels like the Ace, the Standard, etc.--I like.a scene at a hotel (often when traveling in Europe it can be sort of lonely and dead-energy in the hotels). I've stayed at this hotel twice this summer and it's so nice and not overpriced (from a foreigners' perspective -- you know what I mean) unlike many things in gorgeous Switzerland. Modern and cool -- the scene outside at the cafe feels like home to me. It's right on the river and very easy to get to. I am a writer and could honestly live at this hotel and write. it's got great energy. also the bars across the street are always hopping as well. Def reccomend.

Comfortable plus.
This hotel is located on the river with a great location outside to sit and have a beer. The prices are a little high but that seems to be true of all of Switzerland

Great location
We were given a room on the elevator shaft. Windows opened to the shaft. Everyone taking the elevator could look into our room. It was extremely hot when were in Basel, so when we came back to our room after dinner and closed the drapes we realized with no air we were not going to be able to sleep in there. I went to front desk and asked to be changed. Changed to nice room on River. They should not rent those other rooms.

Cool hotel, great area, funky bathroom.
Nice hotel in a very great part of town - easy to walk to a lot of attractions, but it's relatively quiet and peaceful. The bathroom arrangement is pretty strange - the toilet, shower, and sink all sit in one big open room with no partitions between any of them - so when you shower, the entire bathroom gets pretty wet.
