                nice staff, clean rooms

                very expensive car parking, no rates with breakfast included so in the end it is quite expensive per night if you have to pay 35.- per person for breakfast

                Our first trip out of the usa and we were told not to expect much from the hotels in Europe. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel and the wonderful attitude of the staff at the front desk!!

                We loved everything about it!! It was a little out of our way but we knew that when we booked it.

                The sauna and fitness area was open 24 hr. Reception very roomy and light. And a special offer brought this hotel into relatively affordable range.

                Bit slow at check-in. We were the only guests there!

                The Staff is very kind and helpful, the room was very comfortable and perfectly cleaned, the location is ideal to visit the city. It is a real 5 stars hotel.

                Nothing. (Maybe the breakfast is a bit too expensive. In fact we didn't have it)

                It is very central for Basel City and one of the few hotels that has a fitness centre.

                Convenient for Railway Station which was main reason for selecting the Hotel.

                Thought that the room rate was rather expensive and the cost of the buffet breakfast was no good value for money.

                Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Managed to find us a room as far as possible from the construction site across the street. We had 2 small issues with the room that were fixed in a couple of minutes. Highly recommended.

                Cannot be claimed as a 5 star hotel. At best, I can say it is 4 star hotel with 5 star price.

                The maid did not take away used coffee and cream pack and refill with new one.

                Although the service very good, the food in the restaurant is quite expensive
