            Overall the hotel was really lovely, with a great view across the river from the breakfast/dining room. The room was very quiet as the windows were great at blocking out any noise from the street and the bed was incredibly comfy - i booked a single room and the bed was much larger than a standard size single bed. The room and bathroom weren't huge but were perfectly acceptable for a short city trip and most importantly everything was clean, comfy and modern. The staff were very friendly and suggested some nice places to go and eat nearby. Although there were no tea/coffee facilities in the room, there was a self service drinks station on every floor, where there were also bowls of fruit for guests to take from. There was also a laptop with a printer on each floor so that you could print off boarding passes etc and there was free wifi too. The mobility pass giving you free access to public transport was very useful. I would definitely stay here again.

            I loved the hotel, clean, modern, nice staff with perfect location. You can walked to most of the Basel's must-seens from there.

            The breakfast choice was limited. There is no parking by the hotel, you have to park in public parking (5 min walk) and although you get 25% discount of the hotel, it is rather expensive.

            Service, room, breakfast are all excellent value for money.

            Great location! Major tram lines are nearby the hotel in just 3 min walk. The hotel faces the river so guests can enjoy the river view while having breakfast if you don’t have room facing the river. It is a small but refined decor hotel. Staff were friendly except one at the begining of checking in, a bit rude. Breakfast is good. Good value for Booked.net promotion price.

            It was very dusty & the floor of the room was very dirty. But they cleaned the room well after I complained the next day. Still it was uncomfortable had to sleep with the situation for one night. The room facing city street is noisy on Friday nite until 4am in the morning because all drunk people on the street from all bars, dancing rooms in the neighborhood.

            The hotel price for a junior suite was very good.

            The junior suite was actually an attic room, which was interesting, but not much bigger then a regular size room. It had a small skylight facing the Rhine, which was pretty. I was hoping to take a long, hot bath, but there was no bath tub, but a nice size shower. The robes and the balcony was nice, even if you couldn't see over the balcony, as it was in the roof space. All in all, it was okay.

            Helpful staff , excellent restaurant, and great view of city and Rhine.

            Difficult to find.

            10.0

            The staff was professional and friendly, the room was spacious and clean, but I would not recommend a street exposure. The area is VERY NOISY and rather seedy, but once you are in the hotel, it is another world. The restaurant is first class and the service very good.

            The neighbourhood.

            /The location and the view overlooking the Rhine.

            Friendly staff, very nice decoration and design. I really felt welcome and at ease in the hotel. The bicycles that I borrowed were a treat: clean, functional and a very nice addition to a great stay

            No airco in room. Could not sleep because of the heat. Well, it was a very hot day (does not happen very often I think).

          • Single
            7.4

            It was clean and in a good location not too far from the station.They provided a fan for the hot nights and that was good. Close to the river and they offered free internet with laptop and apples on each floor.

            Maybe the locatio was a little too close to the rough downtown area which was why I cut my stay short there.

            The way this historical hotel has become modern while keeping the right atmosphere. Its location by the river Rhein.

            Beautiful hotel, everything was absolutely excellent. Right on the banks of the Rhine, and has lovely views of the river. Higly recommended if you're staying in Basel for a couple of days.
