Staff were extremely helpful from start to finish, hotel is very central to all that Basel has to offer.they also supply you with a transport card for the length of your stay to use on all public transport which became very useful.
The hotel is well located on the Clarastrasse. This is within walking distance of the centre of Basel and the Old Town. Those wishing to use the public transport should have no problems as the hotel supplies a travel pass for the town enabling the visitor to use the trams etc. The hotel itself is located next to a tram stop for a couple of the main routes, and within a couple of hundred metres there are other tram routes.
The hotel staff are very helpful in providing advice and assistance. The breakfast is a comprehensive selection of continental and cooked choices.
Great location for us. No 50 bus outside airport every 10 mins I think takes 20 mins max to main station and three mins walk to hotel. Area is good. Lots of very efficient frequent trams into different parts of city but we loved to walk at leisure mainly.....so much to see and discover. Great place to explore. We took a train to Berne v historic like Basel but v different and Thun, one day. Thun by lake is just lovely.
We really liked this hotel. Fantastic staff, cleanliness and attention to detail. It was a real treat to stay there.
The hotel is about 400 meters from the Basel Bad train station (the German station) so we were able to use our German rail pass to get there. The staff were excellent and gave us the free tram pass for tourists. The trams stop all along the road the hotel is on and make it very easy to get around. The restaurant on the top of the hotel has a great view to watch the sun go down.
Food and drink is very expensive compared to outside Switzerland. We found the Coop. So cheap and easy for food and drinks including alcohol.

Lovely character hotel. Spotlessly clean.with nice little touches..like warm cinnamon tea on table for guests..a selection of herbal teas(no coffee though) outside your room with filtered water.free apples and little chocolates It really was a special hotel. The front of the hotel is right on the river and has a very beautiful view. The tram from the main station stops about 30yards away...only but was the street side of the hotel had a small bar that was little rowdy but the free earplugs and solid double glazed window the hotel provides more than compensates for it.. lovely restaurant on site too. Great overnight stay..
