Dear Belinda From the Basel Airport, you can use bus number 50, it is frequently every 10 minutes. With this bus you reach the railway station SBB, you cross the street and take Bus number 30. This Bus is frequently every 7 minutes, after 1 stop you will be in front of the Hotel. Bus stop is called "Steinenschanze". You do not need to buy a ticket, because as a hotel guest the public transportation is free of charge for you. Just take the confirmation with you. Best regards and have a nice journey Annette

"room 408 is a corner room, quiet and with a small hallway and extra cupboard."
"You can ask for extras at breakfast but this was never really explained (ie scrambled eggs, extra drinks that aren't out such a coke) "
"It was simply a pleasure "
"Room was on street side but it was quiet and the lights were completely covered by the window shades."
"We were on the 5th floor, efficient elevator, quiet room with garden view."
US$124 - US$242 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
