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…

Jean-Luc is a really warm-hearted, knowledgeable and considerate host, keen on sharing the attractions and cultures of Basel. Though he and his partner went on a trip soon after I checked in, he arranged everything perfectly in advance and made a well-rounded and informative introduction of Basel, which helped a lot to improve my stay there. I had an early flight to Basel and Jean-Luc helped me arranged the very early check-in, so that I could drop my luggage before setting off, and the check-out was quite flexible too, which I appreciate very much (as an impoverished student!). The room is very tidy and the toilet is only steps away. You also have a little living room to relax and drink some tea/coffee in, so the money is really worth it. Location is also great. The neighbourhood is peaceful and quiet, and major attractions are reachable by foot in about 15-20 minutes. Oh and if you are a cat lover I’m sure you’ll find their cat very cute.

Jean-Luc was very friendly, flexible regarding check in and check out, and provided all the necessary informations. The room is really nice and filled with small details that made you feel welcome and comfortable. Its location is easily accessible from the train station and anywhere in Basel. I had a perfect stay, thank you Jean Luc.

Jean-Luc was incredibly informative and easy-going. I arrived quite late and he was there to give me the run down on the flat and things to do in the city. The room (or rather rooms) was perfect, a cozy attic apartment to myself. They even had a cat which was an unexpected but delightful surprise. Would absolutely recommend the space to any Basel-bound travelers.

Another successful stay at Jean-Lucs flat. Despite the obvious downfalls (shower on the ground floor) the flat provides a wonderfully comfortable and convenient way to explore Basel! Jean-Luc and his family go out of their way to ensure a nice stay.

I've stayed here twice and both times have been great. The room is clean and quiet and the location is very convenient. Jean-Luc is a gracious host.

Jean-Luc and the Perret family were hospitable and friendly, and helped make our stay in Basel pleasant. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Check in and check out was easy. Access from the Basel train station was easy. Jean-Luc has also but much thought and effort into compiling information for visitors to Basel, ranging from restaurants and pubs to maps.

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.
