Very friendly staff, good location, very clean,

This time I had room, with an higher noise level than the other times. Despite closed windows, the noise level was relative high, one window facing the street with the tram, the other window was facing a loading bay for an office building. Sleeping with open window was not possible. On my other stays I never experienced this ... Missing a comfortable chair to sit on to watch TV, could only do this from the bed...

Very friendly staff, helpful, able to open windows to get some fresh air, however need to have ear plugs with open window as noise level of trams is significant

Convenient location - across from Basel train station, 2 blocks from Bayer office. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Better rooms do not face the main street and are quiet. The included breakfast is a nice add, including coffee to go.

Be prepared that this is a boutique hotel, and everything is very compact - more so than many other European hotels. They still make it work though!

lovely welcome

really hot in the room and had all the windows open but then all you can hear are the air con units. Don't like sleeping with the air con on in the room.

I was surprised that the hotel would not credit us for the 1st night missed due to the Nor'eastern weather issues resulting in a delayed fight and arrival to the hotel as originally booked considering the amount of business Panalpina provides.
