3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Loved this hotel, great room, great breakfast and lots of atmosphere. Right on the edge of the old town, best place to stay! The rooms are spacious and interesting, not just a square box. Free passes for the excellent public transport are a real plus. We enjoyed our stay. And very quiet!

The hotel could not have been in a better location to walk and explore the old town. Every staff member was knowledgable and friendly. They went out of their way on several occasions. We did not go for the one of the art rooms but ours was spacious and nice. Only comment was that we faced the front of the hotel and there were some loud people out in the courtyard. The breakfast was superb. Best croissants I have ever had. Melt in your mouth and light!

This is a fantastic hotel on the edge of the old city in a quiet neighbourhood. It's a five to 10 minute minute walk down to the main square and the Rhine. It is close to the train station also. The hotel has tons of atmosphere and a stylish, quirky edge. The rooms are large and bright, the staff very friendly and knowledgable. We only ate in the Atelier Restaurant (not the fine dining restaurant) but the food was excellent (lots of locals seem to frequent the hotel) and to top it off - they brew their own beer on site! You've got to stay here if you are coming to Basel.

We are located in old town with free passes to transit in front of hotel and walking out the other side you access the walking district. Free wifi. We are in a junior suite with great bathroom and 2 rooms one with king bed and the other is a queen sofa/futon and rollaway. Free coffee and waters. Restaurant bar was great for quiet drink, soups and cheese meat platter.

Location was convenient to walking in the old city. Our lovely room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was very good. Eggs were prepared according to request. Unfortunately, we could not have dinner in the restaurant because it was booked for a function. The service was excellent.

Its a great boutique 3-star hotel greatly located. The Art rooms are spacious and greatly decorated. The breackfast which is included is rich and the building an old greatly refurbished one. The negative part is that the reception is understaffed and that its very difficult to load and unload your luggages if you are with a car. Also there is no elevator if you got a room in the Art Building. Otherwise the best 3-star hotel in town. I had Art room 8 which was gorgeous

I found this hotel in a list with the best hotels to stay in Switzerland and i stayed there for a night and the main reason i booked this hotel was the restaurants in there. Both restaurants of this hotel are 2 of the best in Basel. Location: downtown just next to everything you can visit as a tourist, just park the car and relax - parking not free The room was perfect and very well organized. The service was excellent and the staff helpful in everything The breakfast was also perfect, very poor but everything so yummy

What a delightful hotel. The moment we arrived we were treated like VIP’s. Eilena at the front reception was so friendly and helpful checking us in. She made sure all accommodations were perfect! We stayed in Zimmer 1, one of the art rooms, and it was perfect. There was a beautiful view from the window looking out towards the Basler Münster, a comfy bed, clean bathroom, robes, slippers and coffee machine. The room did not have A/C, but we did have a fan and were fortunate that it was not too warm during our stay. We left the window open. Only downside to this room is that it is over the courtyard to the restaurant so it can be a bit noisy until dinner is over in the evening, but after that very peaceful. The hotel is perfectly situated to access the tram system which can take you all over the city. They definitely have the trams worked out to get you around town. Magnificent! You can also walk out from the back entrance of the hotel and just meander down to Old Town. I recommend walking through the alley ways to Old Town to see all of the amazing 16th century architecture of the village. It’s magical. Our dinner at the Atelier restaurant, which is located at the hotel, was delicious. We missed out dining at Restaurant Bel Etage because they were closed. This was disappointing since this is a Michelin restaurant, we will have to make sure they are open the next time we stay here. All in all this hotel was such a treat to stay at. I would highly recommend if you are planning on staying in Basel.

This is a lovely little hotel in the old part of town very central to walking around. It has what I think is perhaps the best included hotel breakfast I've ever had. Not only was there a large variety of pastries cheeses and meats, muesli, fresh juices etc. but they also offered cooked eggs in almost any style as well as ham and bacon. Having this breakfast be so hard he allowed us to stick with only two meals in super expensive Basel. We stayed in one of the rooms that is not decorated with art just plain white everywhere. The room was small and pretty basic, but the bed was comfortable and everything worked well. Most of the historic building is an old town do not have air conditioning, but even though we were here in August they provided a large floor fan and with the window fully open at night it was fine. The staff was extremely helpful friendly and pleasant. Every person I encountered he worked here was smiling pleasant and helpful. Very nice place to stay I would definitely stay again.

This is a nice hotel just a little removed from the busy center to be quiet but still within a short walk. The reception staff, as mentioned in previous posts, is one of the highlights of the hotel. Very courteous, welcoming and helpful. My daughter had been excited to have one of the art rooms. Unfortunately, the one we were placed in had a glow-in-the-dark picture. Nice once you turn the lights off in the evening but if you fall asleep within 5 minutes you don't have very long to enjoy it. Therefore, the art rooms seem to be hit or miss unless you can choose in advance, which I'm not aware of. If I returned to Basel in the summer time I would strongly consider not stating here. While the hotel is lovely, not having air conditioning made it very hard to sleep at night and a hot room would not be welcoming after a long day sightseeing. Any other time of year I'd say yes.
