The hotel has friendly staff clean rooms and a very big shower head. The price is affordable. Good location. Take Tram 11 from Basel HB and get of at university hospital station. Very good. I recommend the hotel for a Basel vacation.
I chose this hotel because I had never stayed in Switzerland before so didn't want to stay in a chain hotel. When I arrived I wasn't disappointed, it felt very Calvinist and upon my arrival I learnt that the original use of the building was...More
We were staying for one night at the hotel, the reception staff was very friendly and helpful! The cleaning staff was very nice when we walked past and the room was spotless! It still smelled a bit „new“ but this is not a bad thing....More
Six of us just stayed here for a couple of nights and we all loved it.

Hi. I'm sorry for not seeing your quesiton earlier. No there isnt a shuttleto the hotel, but at the airport there is a tram directly outside. It will take you into the city area for free (as long as you hold onto your boarding pass). You need to change trams with the scond one dropping you off about 200 metres fron the hotel. The tram system is very easy to negotiate.
The hotel will provide you with public transport free passes to use whilst you stay at the hotel, so you wont pay for any public transport.
The Viking terminal is about a fifteen minute easy walk along the river.
A great hotel with a really good breakfast as well.
Hope this helps :)

There was an elevator that I saw in the main building and there was an elevator in the newly refurbished building. I am not sure how we lucked out and got the newly refurbished building with a huge room and luxury bathroom, but we certainly enjoyed it. They didn't charge us anything extra either. So, I would ask nicely for a room in the new building and stand your ground on the price. You are three blocks in either direction from restaurants. If you go up the hill the restaurants are better. Down the hill the restaurants are more middle of the road.
