    The location is optimal. If i could give extra points for location i would, easily. It is literally in front of the transport hub of the region and they give you a pass for full public transit usage for your entire trip. The hop on hop off trams combined with junction locale and promity to pretty much anything you can think of makes it an optimal place to base your exploitation of the city. Even France and Germany are available on demand from here. More than anything here is the value. There are nicer places, but for the price and where it is at, this is to notch.

    The bed options are a bit small here and there are no fridges in room. Queen is the largest available. Pillows are pretty pathetic.

    A well cared for hotel in a good central location. Good bed, comfortable shower and relatively large room. Breakfast was well beyond expectations. Prior to our stay, any questions raised with the hotel were answered swiftly and elaborately.

    Nothing to dislike here.

    Great breakfast spread with eggs, variety breads, fruits, flavored yoghurt and hot/ cold beverages Free water/ juices/ cola/ ice on every floor Warm and friendly staff Quick check-in and check-out process Right outside the Basel SBB, and adjacent to the tram and bus lines. And yet, the rooms are very quiet Spacious rooms

    Missed a in the room cupboard - which would be handy for those staying for 4+ days

    Superb breakfast with staff bringing extra coffee and a fresh cup. Lots of fruit and eggs on request. We had an upgrade to a room in the annex connected underground. Not much of a view from the 1st floor but it was large, immaculate and very quiet. Large bathroom but no bathtub. Biggest range of TV channels ever seen in a hotel of this class. Staff most helpful and always present. Location right by main station makes it easy to get about with so many frequent trams just outside. Also airport bus terminus is here. The hotel supplies the Basel card which gives free transport among other benefits. Might be nicer in old town but at a price.

    Nothing aside from the boring view of the back!
