Pleasant and Peaceful Haven
Well situated and easy access to the city / river Seine / main train stations either by walking or catching the local buses at the junction with the hotel. Staff very helpful and room is comfortable, clean and air conditioning works well. Breakfast could have been more substantial with cereals but a typical continental breakfast :-)

Living up to the number of stars...
The front desk staff was all friendly, courteous, and capable. The room was clean and comfortable and relatively quiet despite proximity to a major road. The location is very convenient. Close to a bus stop and a tram stop, allowing to access most parts of the city. This hotel will be my "go-to" hotel in Basel. See you in a few months.

Very good location. Very helpful and friendly multilingual staff. Room was quite large and modern. The hotel doesn’t look like much from the outside but is nicer inside. The biggest negative is the car parking. There is no car park at the hotel so they offer a space at a private car park about 300m away, across two streets, in a busy central area, and they charge an extra 16 CHF per night for this. The car park location is really bad for anyone with kids, heavy luggage or mobility issues - and even worse if it rains.
