“Beautiful room with many extras but a little bit pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

We arrived late at this hotel and driven past it once already because it doesn't impress from the outside. However, when we decided to go in and take a look at the room, we were delighted! We chose a family room which had a massive fold out sofa bed and a king size bed, everything was brand new and extremely comfortable. The receptionist was very friendly and gave us all the information that we required. The room even had it's own Tchibo coffee machine, dvd player, iphone dock and many other surprising appliances. They even allow you to borrow dvd's from reception for free. The welcome basket of fresh complimentary apples in reception was also a nice touch.
We had a very nice sleep and in the morning we were impressed by the display at breakfast which included many different types of bread, homemade muesli, meat, fruit etc ... the only thing i didn't like was the fact that the boiled eggs were cold.
Overall, this hotel is aiming to please and in a very good location but parking is a 5 min walk away. I would stay here again but would prefer not to pay as much as 150 euros a night as i think this was a little steep.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly refurbished room.

The hotel - like many others in Basel should be forbidden by law to multiply their prices to the point that you end up paying for a room at the Ritz -literally- and end up in a motel on the side of the train station, just because they get away with it. Rooms are simple and clean, breakfast a bit sad with bread not always very fresh. Even off "season" I will now refuse to stay there until they apply a decent price policy throughout the year.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Italy. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and the breakfast was good. The only issue we had was the lack of parking on site. We had to park the car down the street at a public car park which was inconvenient. On the positive side once the car was put away you can walk pretty much anywhere you want to go and if not the hotel provided free transit passes. We were traveling with a dog and the staff were very helpful in advising best places to exercise her. This hotel was good value for expensive Switzerland.
