About this listing

The space

To rent three individual rooms in the second floor of an old house with garden located in the centre of the city.

Room N°1 can be rent for 3 nights or more
Rooms N°2 and 3 can be rent for one or more nights
Rooms N°1 and N°2 have a double bed (two persons) and Room N°3 has two individual beds.

The price is for one room per night regardless of the presence of one or two person(s). To be added is a compulsory tax of 3.50 CHF (City of Basel) per person per night. This includes a daily ticket for all the public transports of Basel as well as a ticket from the Basel-Mulhouse Airport or the Train Station up to our home.

Shower and toilet are next to the rooms. We provide linen and towels. A small kitchen with microwave, fridge and two hobs is available. If they so desire, we will be happy to prepare in our kitchen for our guests a breakfast (8 CHF) with homemade bread! There is a wireless but neither radio nor television. You will find a desk in rooms 1 and 3 (see photos). Also available are, upon request, hair dryer, washing machine and iron.

Arrival from the Airport:
When you get outside the airport take the bus n°50 (the only line). There are buses every 7min (Every 15 min in the very ealy morning or late at night). Stop at "Am Wasenboden/St Johann" which is the third stop after the Airport. Take at the same stop the bus N° 36 and get out two stops after (Metzerstrasse). Walk 30m (same direction as the bus) and take the little street on your right (Rheinländerstrasse). Courage, you are soon there! Still 60m to go and you then reach Hebelstrasse. 70m on your left and, at the crossroad with Friedensgasse, is our house (see picture on Airbnb). Bravo, you made it! In other words 5 min from the bus stop.

Arrival from the SBB Basel Station:
Take bus N° 30 (slightly on your left when you get out of the station, on the other side of the street, in front of the confectionery Bachmann). Stop at Bernoullianum (4 stops from the station) and Hebelstrasse is on the other side of the large street. 120 m and here you are! (Intersection with Freidensgasse).

The house is located 10 minutes from the Market Square. A direct bus will take you to either the Exhibition Centre (6 stops, 6 minutes) or to the Central Station (4 stops, 5 minutes) or to the "German" Station (Badisher Bahnhof, 10 min).

Within five minutes you will be at Kannenfeldpark, a wonderful park with old trees and games for children or at the Rhein along which you can enjoy a nice walk.

The situation is very quiet and the house is located in St Johann neighbourhood within walking distance from the University Hospital.

We speak German, French, English, Spanish, and Swedish and welcome international visitors!

This place is perfect for a quiet place to stay in a user friendly neighborhood. Their home is warm and inviting. You must be able to navigate 2 flights of stairs and share a bathroom with others, usually not a problem. The bed in room one is very comfortable and cozy. Jean is very friendly and helpful with navigation and suggestions. Everything is walking distance and if you cannot walk to your destination the tram/ busses are too easy. Train station is within walking distance for trips further out of town.

It was a pleasure to stay at JEan-s home. He is an interesting and helpful person and the place is very well located, central and close to public transportation. I will recommend if you are looking for a room in Basel. Bathroom is shared.

A great experience in Basel. The home is located centrally, in a wonderful neighborhood. It is a short walk to the university . into the central city. The room was beautiful and well kept. We especially enjoyed our interactions with Jean and his spirit of generosity and his knowledge of the city. The friendly breakfast got us off to a good start each day. I've stayed in many airbnb homes and this one is at the top of my list.

Jean and Monika were fantastic hosts and provided a great experience. They were very helpful with suggestions as to what to see and do in the area. The bus system makes it really easy to get around the city. Jean has a wonderful sense of humor and the dog is adorable

The house of Jean is great! The family is kind. The neighbourhood is quite and it is a walking distance to main attractions. The room is lovely and a fully equipped kitchen for the guest. I very much enjoy the breakfast time with Jean. The time in Basel is amazing with the stay.
