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

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!
It was my pleasure to stay in La Belle Maison. I like this quiet nice house. Jean was really welcoming and gave me helpful tips about Basel's places of interest.
Bei Jean im La Belle Maison haben wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Jean ist ein wunderbar hilfsbereiter Mensch, der uns herzlich aufgenommen hat in seinem Haus. Er hat uns wertvolle Tipps rund um Basel gegeben und uns mit seinem leckeren Frühstück einen guten Start ermöglicht.
Wir haben uns sehr gefreut über selbst gebackene Brötchen und Brot.
Vielen Dank Jean!
Jean welcomed us in his huge, affectionately furnished house. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic, especially the bread made by sourdough was delicious :-) and we had some inspiring good conversation. See you hopefully soon!
Die Kommunikation war super und Jean hat es mir kinderleicht gemacht, das Haus zu finden. Die Zimmer sind wie beschrieben, haben alles, was man braucht und sehr sauber. Wer Luxus und ein eigenes Bad braucht, sollte woanders suchen. Ich habe fantastisch geschlafen. Jean und Monika sind bezaubernd und man fühlt sich wie zu Hause. Jean's selbst bebackenes Brot ist unglaublich lecker- empfehle Euch das Frühstück dazu zu buchen. Ich hatte nicht nur eine zentrale, tolle Unterkunft sondern zudem eine menschliche Bereicherung. Hoffentlich bald wieder! 100% empfehlenswert!
Communication before arrival was clear. When I expressed hesitation about the public transportation, Jean graciously met us at the ship and led us through the tram and bus to their lovely home. He went beyond expectations and did our laundry for us as we wandered in Basel for the day. Room 2 was comfortable and the extra cost for breakfast was worth it for his home made bread! I would highly recommend La Belle Maison.
