    Very good

    Good central location, quiet (with the windows closed).

    One of the glasses in the bathroom had a white deposit in it, It had not been cleaned, although it was in a plastic bag. I was charged for breakfast for two persons for two mornings, whereas, in fact we only had breakfast on one morning, (the 7th April).

    It is located next to the main train station, i.e. just outside the city centre.

    Too expensive, hair dryer did not work properly, bath thowels had a bad smell.

    I liked the quality of the matress and bedding, the blackout curtains and a good sound isolation. The room had all the neccessary facilities. There was a breakfast area on the top floor of the hotel with the magnificient views (which cost extra). Good connections with the centre, airport, etc.

    I found Switzerland more expensive than uk. Therefore, the quality you get is lower for the same price. The design of the hotel's interior was not to my liking.

    Great location near sbb train station and tram lines. Great view from eighth floor room

    Superb

    Convenient to Centralbahnplatz but around the corner so much less tram noise.

    Militant smokers gathered on the porch, blocking the front door to the hotel, and stinking the place up. A very unpleasant way to start and end the day.

    Very close to Basel SBB station, quiet, lovely room and great bed.

    The complimentary Tram pass was a nice touch.

    No Restaurant! How can this be a 4 star hotel without one?

    Good location as it was important for us to be very close to the main station. Rooms were very quiet too.

    Superb

    The clear feeling that the hotel people were interested in doing everything they could to make my stay comfortable. They did go out of their way to make sure that this was insured. To my surprise I even found a very nice breakfast at the reception at 4.20 in the morning...

    no negative points at all.. One only has to know that there is a flight of (easy) stairs one has to go up with the luggage before reaching the reception. For me it was no problem but it could easily be....
