bare basics

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: price
Cons: bed, linens, towels
Location: close by city center
This hotel is very basic and you don't get the comforts of most hotels. It's small and the bed is just off the floor and super thin. Sheets aren't great and towels are old. If you are looking for budget and something clean its fine. don't expect the comforts of an american hotel... think a college dorm.

Minimalist hotel

Posted Nov 9, 2014
Pros: Clean
Cons: The bed needs improvement and they need new towels as they are dingy and old.
Location: Location is very good. Near the center of town.
This hotel is very low budget. The bed is basically on the floor and the mattress is like a futon bed. For the money it is not so bad. Its very minimalistic.

Great budget hotel near to Basel SBB train station

Posted Oct 1, 2013 on Hotels
Considering most motels and hotels near the SBB rail station are CHF200 or more, this was a steal. I traveled alone and found the room to be perfectly adequate. Sure, the TV is small and only has one English Channel. Sure there's no AC. But the hotel is within walking distance to SBB, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. 2 tram stations are nearby to bring you into the old city (Altstadt) for free (they give you a mobility card at check in.) If you send them an email prior to arrival, they provide door entry code and code to get your room key. They will even store your luggage during reception hours (7-5:30 during weekdays). Convenience without cost! My only negative would be the hard bed which I found difficult to sleep on since I like soft mattresses. Book this place already!

Ordentlich, Ruhig, Mit Nahverkehrsticket ;-)

Posted Sep 16, 2013
Es war ein sehr entspannter Aufenthalt. Die Zimmer waren sauber, das Bett angenehm hart und ein Ticket für Bus und Bahn für die Zeit des Aufenthaltes war auch inklusive. Schade, dass es keine direkte Möglichkeit für ein Frühstück gibt.

Hotel für Budgetbewusste

Posted Sep 5, 2013
Pros: Das sehr freundliche Personal und der saubere Zustand der Zimmer
Cons: Das Queensizebett ist für meine Begriffe zu schmal. Wenn es draußen warm ist, ist es im Zimmer sehr warm. Den Dimmerschalter findet man nur zufällig
Location: Günstige Verkehrsverbindung (Tram). Nichts Besonderes in der Nähe außer ein paar Restaurants
Wir (2) kamen am Sonntag an. Rezeption unbesetzt, aber dank zugeschicktem Code für Türöffnung und Schlüsselsafe im Vorraum problemlos. Winziges Röhrenfernseherchen. Laut, wenn Fenster offen (Verkehr + benachbarte Schule), keine Lüftung, war sehr warm im Zimmer. Nespresso-Automat praktisch, dto. Kühlschrank. Queensizebett etwas schmal, Matratze OK. Gute Tram-Verbindung, Freifahrtticket für Basel mit allen Verkehrsmitteln war vorbereitet - sehr gut. Rezeptionspersonal SEHR freundlich. Keinerlei Gastronomie im Haus, aber um die Ecke einige Restaurants und 1 Café zum Frühstücken. Basel ist generell sehr teuer.

Good but not in summer

Posted Aug 4, 2013 on Hotels
APA was a basic clean room. We stayed 3 nights in summer in 35 degree celcius temps which made it unbearable as there is no a/c or fan. The windows do open but without a breeze the still air is stiffling. APA is more of an apartment than a hotel. Location was good with 1 block to tram (one of them is directly a 5 min ride to the main train station). Staff were friendly and helpful. It would be good if the hotel description mentioned that access after office hours requires you obtain an entry code to get your key. They are very responsive and emailed it to us. They gave us a travel pass to get around town which was super handy. They don't offer breakfast but there are little groceries stores around plus a variety store across the road and Aldi down the next block. Would recommend it but not in heatwave conditions.

with the heat wave and no fan or airconditioning, it was living in an oven, this place is not built for summer. services was good, the free laundry and free mobility ticket. a simple fan does'nt cost much and can ease the living condition on those hot days...improvement needed,

Gute Lage, sehr ruhig

Gut zu Fuss erreichbar vom SBB Bahnhof.Obwohl Reception nicht besetzt ist am Wochenende hat alles gut geklappt mit den Schlüsseln.Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt. Für Kurzaufenthalte sehr zu empfehlen.
