Latest reviews for places in Basel-City
The place is very well located and was a great base to explore Art Basel!Eddie reviewed Gemütliches Zimmer in Zentrumsnähe in Mustermesse
The accommodation was excellent and decorated lovely. The location was really good for getting around both Germany and Basel. The garden was lovely and the pool a complete surprise. It was a delight to return to each day and the 3 of us didn't want to leave.Ian reviewed Dreiländereck in Kleinhüningen
We stayed for 4 nights as I participate with a Fasnacht clique. The apartment is well situated near a tram / bus stop with good connections to the rest of Basel especially the main rail stations, the Messeplatz area and the Pharma company campuses.
There are supermarkets less than 100m away, cashpoints, and other shops as well as an Italian deli and bakery selling great "Schoggiweggli" next door.
In an older building, the flat is clean and tastefully furnished. A good sized bathroom and well equipped kitchen. The neighbourhood is quiet so ideal for getting one's head down if you are in town on business, while having good transport connections if you decide to go for a late evening out in the town.
I would definitely consider a return visit.Nick reviewed Lovely flat in quiet neighborhood in St. Margarethen
