Well, as the name suggests, easy! no problems finding it, comfortable, simple room all we needed and plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.
Good price for Basel, certainly happy to stay here again.
Directions: You take a No. 2 tram (in the direction Eglisee) and get off at the stop "Messeplatz" (exhibition centre). Then it is only a five-minute walk to the easyHotel taking the direction "Musical Theatre".
This is a lovely place to stay. A lovely atmosphere and I felt as if at home, comfortable rooms, lovely café/restaurant, good meals, kind people!
I travelled by TRAIN from Middelburg in The Netherlands to Basel in Switzerland, which is always fantastic and pleasant!
In Switzerland itself I had a special Pass and travelled from Basel to Geneva, from Geneva to Interlaken, from Interlaken to Luzern and from Luzern to Basel, to take the train to The Netherlands again.
Of course I stayed 1-2-3 days in each of these cities for special excursions and it was a most wonderful stay, especially for someone who hadn't seen SNOW for years on end.......
Directions: 10 min. from the Central Railway Station
I'm going to Basle in November to attend a concert at AVO Session. Could anyone advise cheap accomodation easy to get to from Basel Messe after the concerts, but not too far from station? (I have to leave back to Geneva very early the next morning!).
Thank you so much

I am amazed. I have to look into it.
I just saw the opening of this hotel this week on the Swiss TV. I have immediately posted a Swiss VT deal with all details about it in order that our VT community could enjoy of this bargain if travelling around Basel.
