All hotels' rooms have been fully refurbished in 2010. This hotel enjoys one of the best locations of any hotel in Basel especially for the tourist.
The hotel is centrally located near the station and main shopping area. The old town is very close too an can be reached in a couple of minutes on foot. The trade fair centre is a short tram ride away.
It is a large modern building with a slightly featureless facade.
The lobby is large with plentiful seating. It has recently been renovated in a completely modern style and has "satellite" check-in desks, i.e. three separate desks. The modern bar is integrated into the lobby area.
