Chose JFM as a base camp for the Europa League final in Basel. Very good value for money!

Pros:

Friendly staff with great English language skills.
Free parking
Free wifi
Good location: trams to everywhere, pub serving food less than a minute walk away, bank, bookies next door, McDonald's (short drive). It also has a Chinese restaurant attached to it but didn't try that.
Powerful shower
Clean
Hairdryer, TV & coffee facilities in room

Cons:

Decor a bit dated
Pillows not the comfiest
The light didn't come on in the hall at night so I had to shine my phone to find my room.

The majority of hotels in the area were either charging absolutely ludicrous sums (£750+ per night) or were fully booked for the final but JFM stayed true to its routes; Fair accommodation at a fair price.

I fully expected it to be like a scene from the movie 'Hostel' for what we paid but was pleasantly surprised and left having enjoyed my stay.

As long as you don't go expecting any sort of luxury then you won't be disappointed.

Would happily stay again.

Hotel was clean and quiet, decor was a bit dated but adequate for a base. Switzerland is just a 5min walk over the hill where a tram will take you into Basel. Plenty of public transport around. Check in was quick, no maps or anything given though, have to google everything. Wifi was free and fairly quick.

This hotel is a nice surprise and a great deal for all it offers. 3 minute walk to the strassenbahn into Basel. Hotel restaurant is a good Chinese restaurant - rare in Europe. Comfortable beds. Clean rooms. Pleasant staff. But...

If you are not there within minutes of breakfast starting all the good stuff is gone and you will be left with pineapple joghurt and a couple random slices of lunch meat. Eggs, sausage, and anything warm a remote memory...

The Hotel is situated in the City of Lörrach right at the Border to Switzerland. You walk about 8 to 10 minutes to the S-Station, which goes to Switzerland or to the Black Forest (Zell im Wiesental) You can use the Swiss Tram as well (about 3 Minutes form the Hotel).

The Hotel is mainly used for business or short stays. Art Lovers like it as well, as you can walk to Riehen and visit the world famous "Fondation Beyeler". Excellent breakfast, by the way and a Chinese restaurant next door..
