10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent
Cons: Pretty much perfect
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff. Being picked up from the airport without complaint was very helpful even though it was 10:30pm on a Sunday, following a flight delay. Brilliant and spacious room. Lovely to have a balcony. Also good to have a bath in the bathroom and not just a shower. Kettle was also provided. The Basel card is great for using public transport, including the final transfer back to the airport (combined with initial pickup I therefore didn't spend a penny on public transport all week). Location of hotel wasvvery convenient for everything I needed to do.
Cons: Didn't seem to be able to access English-speaking TV apart from News Channels. I could flick to them (eg Film4) but the screen was blank. Wifi sometimes dropped out. Duvet cover a little uncomfortable for me. Finally: the price was quite high, but not untypical for Basel, unfortunately. None of this would prevent me coming back to this hotel however.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: 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.
Cons: Nothing aside from the boring view of the back!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: 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
Cons: Missed a in the room cupboard - which would be handy for those staying for 4+ days
9.0 Excellent
Pros: 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.
Cons: Nothing to dislike here.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: 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.
Cons: The bed options are a bit small here and there are no fridges in room. Queen is the largest available. Pillows are pretty pathetic.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything amazing! Quiet, beautifully maintained hotel with the best staff and breakfast. Right next to train station and trams. Excellent value!
Cons: Mr Wong's restaurant next door.

Pros: From check-in to leaving, an excellent experience. Hotel is literally across the street from the train station. It's a nice walk to the old town area and the river. And a quick trolly ride back with the included free town pass. Room was large and well equipped. Bath was spotless, well-equipped and with large walk-in shower. Included breakfast was delicious and offered good variety served in beautiful dining room.
Cons: Nothing. This hotel was great.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location was good and the staff very friendly and efficient. There was a Swiss restaurant next to the hotel which the staff recommended, and the food was delicious. The beer nice too. Läderach, my favorite chocolate in the world, has a location in the train station across the street from the hotel. Perfect!
Cons: The room was pretty small - which I selected because we only had a one night stay over. As we were across from the train station- which I also selected and knew in advance - the cable cars/trans kept coming and going late into the evening and again early the next morning. So, this is a pretty active area and a bit noisy.......
10.0 Excellent
Pros: After the second stay, Gaia is now my favorite hotel in Basel!

Cons: The only aspect that I did not appreciate totally: the breakfast. I had higher expectation (for example fresh hot milk or coffee, not from the machine), however you can find all the basic salty and sweet things.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: we stayed in the back side of the hotel and i think the front of the hotel was renovated. The room was still good but we had to use the front door, and its hard to pull your suitcases thru narrow corridors. The location of the hotel is very good. People working in the hotel are very professional. the room and the bathroom is quite big.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful location within walking distance of the river for people taking river boat cruises.
Cons: We were in the new wing so there were many stairs to climb.
7.5 Good
