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.
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.
Our house is situated in a calm and safe neighbourhood.
A direct tram (no. 6) leads you to the center in 10 minutes ant to the exhibition square in less than 20 minutes. You can reach the place easily by public transports from the airport and every train station in Basel. You will get access to detailed informations how to get here after your booking in your «travel plan».
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…
Smoking in the rooms not allowed.
The stay in Jean-Luc's place is really nice. It is located in a quiet and safe area and easily to reach via tram or bus. The room looks exactly as the photos. It is clean and cozy. If you like a place with some privacy, this is definitely a very good choice, because you have your own living room, toilette and bedroom on the top floor. Jean-Luc and Katija are very friendly and helpful. Definitely, I will recommend this to my friend.
Wie bereits das letzte Mal, war ich von der atmosphärischen Mansarde sehr angetan. Jean-Luc und Katja sind sehr angenehme Gastgeber. Immer wieder! Sehr empehlenswert!
Der Aufenthalt war wie immer sehr angenehm, das Zimmer sehr sauber.
I had a great stay in the mansard rooms in Basel and highly recommend this airbnb. Both Jean-Luc and Katja were such hospitable hosts, they made me feel very welcome and were very flexible with arrangements. They even invited me to join them swimming in the Rhine on my first day there, which was a brilliant experience! The room is exactly as described and seen in photos. In a central, easily accessible and quiet area of the city. Thank you to both Jean-Luc & Katja for a wonderful stay!
Super Aufenthalt, habe sehr gut geschlafen trotz der hochsommerlichen Temperaturen. Nochmals danke für das Laken, war ideal bei der Hitze.
About the Host, Jean-Luc
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.
