                        6.6

                        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!

                        nice and clean rooms and the hospitality of the hotel

                        i was not able to get my smooking room i asked forfurthermore, they told me that, they only have like three smooking rooms in the hotelwhich was a bit unconvieniant as this is was not clear in placing my reservation

                        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.

                      • Older travelers
                        6.6

                        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.

                        The bed was devine! We had travelled all day from Italy, staff were welcoming, the room was very comfortable and quiet.

                        Only the location for my business travel

                        Very expensive not worthed even 20 % from the amount that I paid ,I paid 2550 CH for 3 nights

                        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.

                        Breakfast was a bit expensive

                        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.

                        Quality of the staff, location, and price

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