Very reach breakfast

Room was cold. Very rich breakfast with smoked salmon and french cheese specialties.There is a manual orange sqeezer for natural juice. It was a very noisy dog on the hall. They should not accept pets here. There is a free mineral bottle in room.

What a Mistake!

My plan was to stay in or near Basel, Switzerland, to do some sightseeing. I also wanted to be right there. I wanted to take some tours of notable places, events, and history. Imagine my surprise when I got to Carathotel. It is NOT in an area suitable for Swiss sightseeing. In fact, the area is most decidedly industrial. Factories, truck stops, Diesel fueling for business are normal in Weil am Rhein. I chatted with the Hotels.com representative, and explained the unsuitability of this hotel for a disabled senior citizen traveling alone. She called the hotel and begged them to cancel my prepaid reservation without penalties. No! No! No! They were not nice about it at all. The front desk staff said that if I looked on a map, Weil am Rhein is clearly not in Switzerland, and I should have known better. The hotel is nice for business travelers or tourists with a car. Otherwise, find other accommodations.
