Staff was extremely friendly and helpful in answering all our concerns and questions we e-mailed before we left the US and within a few minutes answers arrived. They gave us helpful directions from airport to hotel by bus, which was free. Would love to stay there again if we return to Basel.

Pros: Not very much
People are nice but less professional. They don't even know how to properly use their computer. Rooms are small, bathroom are way too small with just shower.
