      Very good

      Staff, when there, prompt at dealing with problems and friendly and helpful. Room was large, clean and quiet. Large fridge and kettle useful.Very good about letting me leave case in room till the evening I left.

      Would have liked hair dryer and plate and basic cutlery. As staff only there for limited hours would like emergency numbers in room and also information on when to pay and perhaps on local transport. As room only cleaned once a week helpful to have cloth and cleaning material to clean bathroom and dustpan and brush for floor. Also another wastepaper bin.

      Nice

      Convenient organization, even for arrivals at late night. Excellent connection with the center with tram lines 15 and 16, or 20 min on foot

      Bed sheets doubtfully clean, and there was blood on the window curtains!

      Situation regards to our final destination ( Pratteln ) and to the city center of Basel.

      It seems we were in a hospital room, nothing inside, small space, no coffe machine like it was in the description, employees of the hotel never say good morning or other signs of politeness.

      Great

      The room was basic and adequate for a short stay in Basel, ideal for somebody with a tight budget and just requiring a base to start from.

      Lack of staff over weekends to sort out queries arising for travellers arriving after 1700 hours on Friday.

      Perfect

      Good value at a time when other hotels in Basel were charging higher rates because of the fair in the city.

      In an apartment I expect a bit more than only 2 glasses and 2 cups of coffee.

      The rooms were designed to be comfortable but simple. Our stay was made very enjoyable as it took just a few minutes to go by tram to the city centre. I deal for anyone looking for a clean comfortable place to stay who is on a budget.

      Everything was fine.
