An underground garage with 59 parking spots and 6 charging stations for electric cars is also available.

 

Design:

The design style of the hotel is contemporary, of a business standard venue. The building architecture is modern with a glass front and a low-level design. The decor is attractive and colourful, however modest and in line with a 4-star business hotel.

The contemporary lobby was redesigned in 2021 and its iconic sofa gives a colourful touch to the entrance.

At check-in, the “Baselcard” is handed to the guests, which entitles them to free use of public transport.

Compliance Hotspot

The Hotel's marketing is aimed at the business and leisure traveller alike however, we would consider that, due to its proximity to a number of corporate companies, including Pharma and Healthcare companies, its business space is a practical solution for healthcare meetings in Basel.
