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!
Einfach wundervoll! La Belle Maison ist schön auf so viele Art und Weisen. Von der ersten Minute an, fühlt man sich wohl! Der Gastgeber ist wundervoll, humorvoll, herzlich und hilft in allen Lebenslagen. Das Zimmer und das Haus sind liebevoll eingerichtet und sauber. Das Frühstück ist wegen des selbst gebackenen Brots und der interessanten Gespräche sehr zu empfehlen! Alles in allem findet man hier nicht nur ein Zimmer vor, man fühlt sich wie zu Hause!
Notre séjour à La Belle Maison a été parfait sur toute la ligne! Jean est un hôte adorable, plein d'humour et chaleureux. Son petit déjeuner avec son pain et ses brioches maisons est ce qu'il y a de mieux pour commencer une journée à Bâle! Et la maison est superbe! Notre chambre (la 1) était spacieuse, agréable, très propre et calme. Et les conseils de Jean sur la ville ont été précieux pour nous permettre de voir l'essentiel avec le peu de temps que nous avions.
Fantastic hosts, we will tell everyone who is going to Basel to stay there! My wife got sick and Jean even made her a soup and brought it up to her room. When I told him I collected old pens he gave me a box full of nibs he didn't want to keep. Made this Basel trip a unique experience.
This was our first ever Air-BnB stay. Jean made us feel very welcome into his wonderful home, and was a brilliant host. We stayed in room No. 1 which was amazing, a very warm and homely room.
Jean gave us some great advice for our stay in Basel, and was very helpful with any questions that we had. A great place to stay for a quiet and relaxing break.
Stayed in La Belle Maison for 3 nights and we have a nice time here! Location is great, easy to reach the center/train station by tram or bus. Kitchen and bathroom functions well, though we have little problem with the wifi in our room on the first day, the second day's going to work well again!
Jean is very friendly and informative, he provide us many tips about Basel and make sure we have a good time during our stay. Highly recommended! Thanks, Jean:))
Jean ist ein sehr zuvorkommender Gastgeber - und zudem eine sehr interessante Persönlichkeit. Ich würde jederzeit wieder bei ihm übernachten.
