The hotel has in incredible location right in the center of Basel. My room had an incredible view to the Rhine and the old bridge. The rooms were of a modest size but still comfortable. Breakfast was good, friendly personnel and a surprisingly good value for money for Switzerland.
Big drawback: the noise. On a good day, even with closed window, you're able to hear the trams passing by every 10 minutes from 5 am or so. If you go in late July-early August, you may find yourself serenaded by the live concerts taking place 20 meters away (www.imfluss.ch). To be fair, the concerts end by 10:30 pm. Still, the hotel is not for light sleepers.
