negativ: Was further from Basel SBB than I expected but instructions on how to get there using the tram was excellent.
positiv: Very friendly and welcoming staff
negativ: Price for room was in my opinion too high in relation to the facilities offered. No shampoo in the bathrooms, wireless didn't work in all rooms.
From Basel's main station SBB take tram No. 2 or 1 to Messeplatz/Exibition square. From train station Badischer Bahnhof take tram No. 6, 2 or 1 to Messeplatz/Exibition square. Cross the square towards Riehenring. The Hotel is a 2 min. walk further, opposite the building with the glass facade.
