Great hotel in Basel

  • November 2014
The hotel is located near Marketplatz in the old part of Basel. It is very easy to find the hotel fom Euro Airport take the 50 bus to the Basel Main Rail and from there take the tram 8 or 11 to Marketplatz. The staff was excellent. The room was very clean and every night we get a bed time story. The breakfast was excelent with many selection of meat, fruits, cereals, bread and gem. We recive a mobility ticket for all public transport in Basel. You dont need to find any restaurant because the hotel has its one restaurant. ... All in all it was a good stay and I'll recomand this hotel and restaurant read hotel review

Great hotel in the center, very close to the market place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good, tasty food - well served. Rooms are spacious, very clean, well equipped. Beautiful, large blanket, comfortable beds. City center can be reached on foot. But you get a card, in order during the stay the public transport free of charge to use. Remarkable museums - we liked especially the museum tinguely and the toy museum - the fondation beyerler for us was rather disappointing. Next door is a nice theatre. read hotel review
