Recent guest reviews

My wife and I spent one night in this hotel. The staff was great; very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, breakfast great. They let us borrow 2 bikes to pedal around town. My only regret was that we only stayed one night.

Stayed one night, and the hotel was a wonderful choice: very good location, right at the old down; extremely nice and helpful staff; clean, spacious, well-equipped rooms. We took a family room, which was huge and well-lit. We had a very early flight, so the light-proof blinds were a big help - as was the prompt wake-up call. The staff arranged taxis for us, packed a great sandwich, some water and fruit for each of us (for free!), and helped us with the luggage at 3am. Highly recommended!

A belated review of this stay (Dec 2014). A really good hotel in a great location. We stayed one night and was upgraded to a larger studio room facing the street. Caught up with a friend in the bar downstairs which was nice. Breakfast was good too. Would definitely stay there if visiting Basel again.

The hotel has a lot of character and charm. It was clean, spacious, well furnished and decorated. We only stayed one night but were able to appreciate the effort the staff go to as they were all pleasant and helpful The food was also extremely good although a little pricey.

The atmosphere of this historic hotel and restaurant is wonderful. It was absolutely beautiful. The food was delicious at our business Christmas party. The restaurant was easily accessible by tram as well as walking.

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.
