          The room was clean, modern and functional. once I had got my bearings to the location it was perfect for my visit with easy access to Basel centre. Will deffinately use again!

          coffee machine didn't work!

        • Family with children
          4.6

          Peace and quiet; the things I requested were in the room (hair dryer, plates/glasses/cups/utensils but no bowls, modem although didn't get to use it since my laptop battery was low & I couldn't plug it on socket).

          (1) We arrived Saturday at 10:00pm & there was nobody when it said that opening office hours (Saturdays) was ≈ 6:00pm-12:00 midnight; I would have wanted to ask to leave our luggage the next day before leaving Basel but this was not an option as there was nobody; (2) everything seems to be falling apart: the flusher of the toilet was loose and kept falling off; (3) the soap holder in the shower was also loose & suddenly even fell on (and hurt) my daughter's foot - the screws were not good; (4) we couldn't plug any of our equipment e.g. laptop (type C plug w/c should fit on type J socket); couldn't use my laptop but the hotel pre-charged me for the internet in my bill and, although I put a note to this effect, I haven't heard from hotel.

          Ideal for weakly business overnights, clean, proper and quite.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The price is really low for the standard room which has a fridge and a kettle.

          You will not know until you get there that the reception is not always manned and when they are not there, the main door is locked! This information is hidden in the tiny print at the bottom of your confirmation email. You will also find that this is not an apartment, it is a very basic room with a shower room plus kettle and fridge, that's it. Also, note that the standard room has two narrow single beds, you have to upgrade to get a double bed!

        • Single
          9.2

          The hotel staff was great. I was happy to receive a call from the receptionist, Doris, the evening of my check-in. She informed me of their closing hours and then e-mailed me the codes for the entrance and check-in details so that I could come in on my own. Fantastic.

          The only small observation was the bathroom's ceiling. The paint was starting to come off due to a lack of proper ventilation. Otherwise, everything else was fine with me.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Friendly staff, coffee/tea facilities and fridge, clean, good location to Basel and Transport. Handy shops nearby. I would stay here again.

          I liked these apartments but it would have been handy to have had some bowls & cutlery especially for people with children.

        • Family with children

          Good service and I had a plesant stay

        • Single
          7.0

          Convenient location due to Basle excellent tram service.Never saw any staff - somewhat unusual.However had all I needed and teamaking service appreciated dut to expensive Swiss prices.

          Apparently run by remote control but I had no complaints.

        • Single
          3.2

          It is nothing more than an overpriced hostel. The room was too hot and had no facilities. Reception was open a few hours a day. Found myself having to wait at least a day to have the chance to speak with them. Overall, it is the worst value for money hotel experience I have ever had.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          . The location was convenient and the guest tram pass was useful.

          The room, called an apartment, had little more than a refrigerator and very poor furnishings. It was much too hot and no fan was provided. The toilet seat came off, the shower leaked, the one chair (for two people!!) was a covered outdoor chair. The refrigerator was useful but the coffee maker didn't work properly

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Good location, good enough price for what it offers, a nice stay with not many frills but everything you need.

        • Single
          6.6

          Quite close to the city center, very good bus and tram network to everywhere in the town. No noise at all in the neighbourhood.

          The room was perfectly clean (hair in the shower...). Nobody at the reception office at night of during the weekend (except this time I guess, because of the Festival). No possibility to let your luggage there, to have breakfast or to order anything to eat.

        • Single
          6.2

          The main complaint is the people hanging around outside your door who I think come from the internet cafe right next door. The apartmnent house is well run and clean , but this gives a bad first impression. Also , it was very hot during this time of year and it would be nice to have airconditioning.

        • Single
          5.8

          Basic infrastructure - good for no frills business overnight.

        • Single
          6.2

          It can be called as a basic hotel, appears to be clean and well light. Staff is good but they appear only in the morning. Location is good for the money however not the room facilities.

          There is no phone or intercom in the room. The reception is closes in the evening until next morning. For any help/support during non office hours, one has to call a phone number. The phone is answered after a long wait and then you are put on music once again for long long time as they are either checking your reservation details or are hunting for some one who can speak to you in English. From an international mobile this call gets very expensive. No wi-fi also makes it difficult for people with Wi Fi mobile phone/ laplop. Micro-wave is missing in the room. A Wi.Fi , microwave, phone and 24hr reception will get the value for money, without these facilities it is an expensive hotel.
