Enjoyed our stay in this very nice small hotel.

Ron’s river cruise up the Rhine.
Basel was the starting point for our Viking Rhine river cruise and we booking this hotel on our own to save a few $$. We opted for a lower cost room and it was a little tight. But over all I would stay again. It’s in a great location less than 200 yards from the main train station, a transportation hub. We were surprised to learn that they gave us a tram pass that corresponded with the length of our stay for free. The staff is helpful, friendly and spoke fantastic English. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were able to take a tram from the hotel to the Viking Cruise dock and saved $$$.

Just outside the train station, the hub of the city and an easy walk (10 minutes) to the historic area. Area has lots of restaurants, very clean. If breakfast is included; good option and delicious, but wouldn't pay 25CHF for it with many options in the area.

Good cheap place in Basel Switzerland
I upgraded for 20 extra dollars. The upgraded room was quite far away and it had a few low ceiling areas. The bed and bathroom were excellent. The service was very good.
