About this listing

You need a place to sleep in Basel?
We offer a simple but cozy sleeping room for a single person or a couple and a small living room, both in the mansard (4th floor, no elevator) of our house. You have your private restroom with cold running water. Shower is on another floor and shared.

The space

We offer a sleeping room for a single person and a small living room, both in the mansard (4th floor, no elevator) of our house. You have your private restroom with cold running water (potable). Here in the attic floor you have some peace and quiet and privacy – apart from the creaky wooden floor. In summertime it's sometimes warm up here, but you can sleep with open windows.

The Shower is situated in our flat on the ground floor. It can/must be shared with us. You recieve bed linen and towels from us.

Breakfast is not included, but you find a nice italian café around the corner (open tue - sa).

We accept bookings EXCLUSIVELY via the airbnb-website. The price is non-negotiable. You can book 3 months in advance. Please complete the airbnb-verification before you book.

Guest access

Feel like at home…

Interaction with guests

The rooms belong to you while your stay. In rare cases, someone needs to fetch something from the attic and ascends to the 4th floor because of that. Apart from that you have some peace and quiet.
If you wish, we e-mail you a PDF prior to your trip with a few informations that we regard as useful.
The door of Katja and Jean-Luc is always open if you have questions or need something. We are locals in Basel since childhood and will be glad to help you with any kind of tips.

Other things to note

We clean the rooms after every guest and wash the bed- and bath-linen. But our house is 80 years old, and we have the washing facilities of a private household. We can not provide the hygiene-standard of a 5-stars-hotel. In exchange we are a little cheaper…

Sweet, cosy place close to the city centre, felt safe and at home, nicely decorated interior and good views from the top floor windows. Jean-Luc was very friendly, warm and helpful ! I had a charming time in Basel :)

Nice room, toilet on same floor, in nice area, with tram 6 your in the centre within 10 minutes. Jean-Luc and Katja are nice and open people. Would recommend this place when you are traveling alone.

My first Air bnb experience and I'm hooked. If you want to visit a city like Basel and you're just looking for a no fuss comfortable accommodations then this is the room to book. I stayed for two nights during March. I liked that the neighbourhood was really quiet and that I got a flavour of what it's like to live in a Swiss city apartment. The house is about eighty years old and the room comes with it's own fitness regime by way of a beautiful solid wood staircase to the 4th floor. Room and facilities are described acurately on Jean-Luc's page so there's noting to add. It's within walking distance to city centre and is conveniently located for trams and for the bus to the airport. If you travel there before the 28th May 2017 then be sure to take a tram to see the Claude Monet Exhibition at the Beyeler Foundation.

It's my first time to use Airbnb and it turned out as a great experience in Jean-Luc's place. He is a great host: very helpful, easygoing and warmhearted, willing to give you the detailed suggestion for how to arrive at his place (by emails before I went there), touring in Basel or visit a particular place in the city. All the rooms are very clean, tidy, and cozy. I particularly love the living room, which made me feel like at home. From his place, it's easy to get around everywhere. In short: a great place and a great host. I would like to recommend it to everyone who would like to visit this beautiful city in Switzerland.

Jean-Luc is a great and friendly host, even though I never met him. He can provide every detailed information to me before I stay and also take good care of me during I stay. His place is very clean and quiet. If I will visit Basel again, I will choose his place again. Thanks

Jean-Luc war einfach ein perfekter Gastgeber, der alles über seine Stadt weitergegeben hat. Es passte alles!

Katja und ich sind in Basel aufgewachsen und leben mit den zwei Kindern Jan und Anna im ruhigen und zentrums-nahen Gotthelf-Quartier. Die zwei Zimmer unter dem Dach brauchen wir nur sehr selten, deshalb stellen wir sie gerne zum Übernachten zur Verfügung.
Wir möchten eine einfache, saubere Schlafgelegenheit anbieten für Gäste, die froh sind, wenn sie nicht zu viel Geld ausgeben müssen. Wir versuchen, unseren Gästen soviel Privatsphäre wie möglich zu lassen, lernen aber auch gerne neue und nette Leute kennen.
