Room to enjoy.

Negative Reviews

Not so cool.

Guests note that the air-conditioners in some of the rooms aren’t efficient and have trouble cooling the rooms. This can be troublesome during the summer months when it can get fairly warm in Basel.

Time your Wi-Fi.

The hotel does offer free Wi-Fi; however, it is only free for 24-hours. You will need to pay for Wi-Fi after the initial usage period. Guests say this policy is somewhat of an annoyance for those staying at the hotel for more than one day.

Waiting at the restaurants.

The can be some long wait times for food at Grill25, the hotel’s on-site restaurant. Guests report that during both breakfast and dinner, food can sometimes be slow to appear.
