    I booked this hotel through Booked.net special Flash deal offer. The price we paid for the hotel in front of the experience we had during our stay was truely a deal. The hotel staff welcomed us with a smile and even offered help to carry our luggage. The explained us the terms well, and the ongoing construction alongside the hotel. There was no disturbance at all due to construction in the night and we were anyway away during the day times. The best stay we've had till date from the hotels booked through Booked.net.

    They have a good Gym/spa, good location, easy acess by public transportation. Very friendly staff

    Breakfast is a joke, it cost 32 chf for a choice of a 4 star hotel!

    Staff were excellent and kept apologizing for the construction. However, we were not aware of any construction noise. Our room was quiet, excellent. Would happily stay there again.

    We came to Basel to have 5th wedding anniversary and this Hotel was a perfect choice as we were lucky enough to get a free upgrade to Premier room! I think that the staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was confortable and well situated. I can recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Very good

    Room was high tech and well designed.

    The location is central for business but the hotel was under construction. The noise started before 8am in the morning. As five stars hotels goes this was more a 4 Star
