* Good location * Clean * Quiet * Fast & reliable internet * Complete set of toiletries
* Small room and beds * Very bad pillows, worst ever! * Old elevator
Great location being on the Rhine. Beds comfortable. Breakfast expensive but you could eat all you wanted.
Maitre'D was rude and obnoxious.
Location and food Would only stop again if we had riverside rooms
Rooms at the rear are subject to to much noise at night from traffic and bars when you have to leave your window open on warm evenings .
Lovely situation by the river and easy walking distance of most things. Courtesy drinks in minibar.
Overpriced restaurant,poor service,underwhelming menu. Very noisy outside on night we stayed...all night...not the hotel's faultbut still a drawback to the pretty location
Had been in 2000 as first night stopover on a drive to Nuremberg, and decided then that I must return. So, many years passed before I returned with my wife for a week. It's a wonderful city and nothing could have been more relaxing than to return to this hotel with its balcony overlooking the Rhine, simultaneously a business waterway and effectively a lido where citizens swim on Sundays
We found hotel easily, good parking and excellent room overlooking river and sights of Old Town across the bridge.Go for higner floors for more quiet.
Having to pay for carparking
The location,friendly,the view,the parking
Noice from the pubs
Friendly welcome from the staff. Ideal location, car park on site. Nice room, clean and modern bathroom.
Location View from River room Staff very helpful Restaurant very good
Nil air conditioning - needs to be addressed urgently
Location View from river rooms Nice restaurant
Other rooms very poor, little air.
Great staff. Good food.
Very noisy rooms at back of the hotel with windows open. No air conditioning only fans.
We liked the location very much - close to the river, sights, transport and restaurants. Our room had a good view onto the river.
The overall experience was quite good!
We loved our room, overlooking the Rhine. It was compact, but perfectly equiped for a short stay, even with a (small) dog. The staff were happy to provide us with a connector to plug in my laptop to the electricity. We loved being so close to the centre of Basel, but not having the noise of busy traffic. We sat in front af the window, could open the big doors and enjoyed life on the river and the banks.
I was unpleasantly surprised to find that the door of the private carpark could be opened by anyone rather easily. We were given a key, but the door only closed and could not be locked. At 25 Swiss Francs a day not quite value for money. An electronically locked door with a keycode would be much safer. One would think that the hotel makes enough money to make that possible. The rooms could do with airconditioning.
perfect view, clean, well wequiped
duvet to warm for hot summer evening, would prefer a sheet
Everything fabulous but at a price.
* Amazing location, very close to old town, lovely riverside location, great transport links - definitely pay the extra to book a room on the riverside; * Staff were very polite and helpful; * Clean, comfortable, light
* No air-conditioning
The location was great, very nice view on the river.
no aircon on a very hot day
Great room view Balcony Excellent staff and service-friendly and helpful
Balcony and view on Rhine
Only two Nespresso capsules and two shots of milk in the room.
great location along the Rhine.
Room was rather small, bathroom was very! small, hardly any space to shave or brush your teeth. But, the staff was very helpful and Basel is such a beautiful city.
Great location, we were upgraded to the apartment on the top floor, that incl. a kitchen, a lovely outdoor balcony, very nice place, great view on the old city and Middle bridge. Breakfast was excellent and also had dinner on the outside deck, a bit pricy, but excellent wait staff and you can't beat the view.
Upon arrival in Basel, the temparatures were soaring, it was unusually hot for early June [36 C or 95F] and that's when we realized the hotel did not have airconditioning! There was a fan and humidity apparatus, but it was quite hot. Keep that in mind when booking this hotel in summer.
