This a great place to stay when visiting Basel. For one thing, you get to see a whole lot more. As it just over the border in France, it makes the trip that bit more interesting. The hotel is a 10 minute walk, less if you are a fast walker, from the Swiss boreder. You just walk across and suddenly its Swiss francs instead of Euro and German speaking instead of French. Although their French is perfect if needed.
Another 30 seconds walk and you are at the tram stop, the last one out of Basel. Jump on the tram and its a 10 minute journey into the centre of Basel. A day ticket is just £3.00 and can be used on any tram, all day long.
The hotel is lovely and the staff are very friendly and multi-lingual. It is set in a quiet area though, so no late night clubbing if that's you. There are a few bars and cafes nearby and a supermarket is only a 2 minute walk away. The rooms are large and the ensuite facilities are excellent. Well recommended.
Small but pleasant room, clean quiet and decently priced (from 52 euro for a double). Although its basically bordering Germany and Switzerland, the directors only speak French, no English, German, Spanish or Italian, so you might want to bring a phrasebook.
Its three minutes walking distance from the St. Louis station, and there are lots of trains to/from Basel SBB, so its a great value if you want to stay in Basel but don't want the high cost of the city.
