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!
Jean is an extremely enthusiastic, talkative and intelligent academic. He helped us plan our itinerary in Basel and beyond. His house is beautiful and the room is clean and airy. Very close to the town centre. He also prepares breakfast with freshly made bread (secret recipe) for an additional price (secret recipe ;). Would definitely stay again.
Jean is a really easy going and helpful host. He was flexible in adjusting our check-in time upon our request, helped us with the parking (more than was expected!) and full with advices to visit the city. The room was more than OK and the breakfast rich and complete. The house in nice and conveniently located just a few minutes from the city center.
Joan was a helpful host. He provided a map of the area and highlighted where we should focus our limited time in the city. We probably wouldn't have found the botanical gardens (which are fantastic!) without him. Thanks for the great tips, Joan!
The location of the B&B to the historical part of Basel was great. Easy walking distance. Jean was very kind and made us feel at home. He immediately provided a map of old Basel and told us what to see. He also took the time to make us a dinner reservation. He was always available to answer our questions.
Unser kurzer Aufenthalt in Jeans La Belle Maison war super. Jean war sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit und hat uns ein wunderbares Frühstück zubereitet.
Die Zimmer sind sehr schön und das Haus ist ideal gelegen.
Een héél aangenaam adres, met een hartelijke en joviale gastheer: een bijzonder lekker ontbijt met zelfgemaakt brood; uitstekende ligging op wandelafstand van het centrum van Basel en toch in een rustige straat. We kregen interessante suggesties voor bezoeken, vervoersmogelijkheden. Jean is en een boeiende spreker over maatschappelijke onderwerpen, met een kritische blik. De kamer was goed, met gedeelde badkamer en keukentje. Dit adres is echt een aanrader.
Jean was the perfect host! The house is really nice and very close to the center. The Breakfast was amazing!
