    Rooms are very clean and its interior was good. It was great pleasure to have such a nice breakfast during my business trip in Basel.

    Language available in TV programs included Chinese and Korean, but Japanese.

    The free ticket to move in the city was fantastic.

    Despite "not central" location hotel proved to be clean, with friendly staff, recent renovation and required facilities. As a small bonus we received daily pass for all transport (probably to compensate not central location).

    Very good

    Nice rooms at reasonable prices. The hotel is conveniently located in the city and has a bus stop at its door steps to connect to railway station. It would have been a great deal if breakfast were to be included in the price. The staff was very helpful and courteous.

    Superb

    Although not in the centre, the hotel is not far from the tourist sites and the tram service (with a free pass issued by the hotel) is very good. The hotel istself was very clean and the rooms comfortable. The staff were very helpful at all times.

    Fabulous

    The staff were efficient and friendly - specially the reception staff. They took much trouble in welcoming us and finding us information about some of the places we wished to visit. The room was large and clean. Parking was easy. 'Evita' playing next door was an added attraction. Thank you.

    The hotel offers a free card for public transportations during stay in the city to move freely in the city from or to the station and the airport.

    This offer for the free card for public transportation was not properly informed to me although I came to the hotel from Basel station by bus. So I bought a ticket to come to the hotel. I was told to show the booking confirmation paper if I was claimed to show officer the ticket. The problem was the hotel did not send me the confirmation paper by e-mail.

    Good quality hotel ,efficient rather than atmospheric. We know Basel well so it doesn't matter that it's a business location rather than tourist .A first time visitor miht be better to choose a more central location,but this isn't a big issue. All staff high quality and friendly.

    Know the hotel well and the fairly small rooms might otherwise surprise first time visitors.

    Superb

    The staff at the front desk spoke very good English-very helpful! Also, we had a medical situation that required ice - lots of it - and they were good to give us as much as we needed.

    This was our first time in Europe, and we were unaware of the differences there. It is expensive and few free amenities, but I can't blame the hotel - just different expectations since we are used to US hotels. There was free internet and a few free English tv stations. No ice machines in the hall, etc, but it was obvious that people there had a different lifestyle, and this wasn't necessarily different for them.

    Great Hotel at a good location. They provided us with free Tram tickets during the weekend. The Center of the city is just a couple of minutes away.

    Friendly staff and quick and efficient check in. Like the free travel for the bus and trams for the duration of our stay but think that applies to all hotels in Basel

    No tea or coffee making facilities in the room
