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!
Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt in "la belle maison", das seinen Namen zu Recht führt. Jean und Monika sind ganz tolle Gastgeber mit einem tollen Frühstück bei dem sogar die drei Brotsorten selbstgebacken sind! Und das Beste ist, dass die Kosten für die Übernachtungen einem guten Zweck in Afrika zugute kommen. Es müsste mehr Menschen wie Jean und Monika geben.
We felt really good in "la belle maison". The Hosts are very kind people and they make one of the best breakfast where the bread is made by Jean. And the best is that the money you pay for your stay ist going to an humanity mission in Africa. The world needs more people like Jean and Monika.
My stay in "La Belle Maison" was excellent. Jean is a wonderful, humorous host, and there is never a dull moment with him !
I enjoyed the breakfast very much, with home made bread and home made jam !!
The room is very quiet, yet well connected by the trams !
The best part is hearing about Jean's humanitarian work in war-torn places.. very inspiring to hear !
Look forward to staying there again !
Jean liebt die Rolle als Gastgeber. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt, bequem geschlafen und ein reichhaltiges und feines Frühstück mit selbst gebackenem Brot und Zopf geniessen dürfen. Jean hat mir sogar die Rezepte verraten. DANKE VIELMALS! Ich freue mich auf das nächste Mal!
Eine tolle Unterkunft bei einem herzlichen Gastgeber.
Das Haus und seine Bewohner laden zum länger verweilen ein, schade, dass ich nur die eine Nacht bleiben konnte!!!!
Kleiner Tipp: lässt euch nicht das Frühstück entgehen mit selbstgemachtem Brot und Konfis. Hmmmm lecker
Staying in La Belle Maison is wounderfull! Jean is a relaxed and caring Host, the House is really a "la Belle Maison". If it is available, it is the best place to stay in Basel i can imagine
Thank you Jean!
Ein tolles Wochenende in Basel geht zu Ende in einer wunderschönen Altstadt-Villa mit sehr freundlichen Gastgebern. Das Zimmer unter dem Dach war sauber, warm und gemütlich. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
My stay at La Belle Maison in Basel was just incredible. Jean makes you feeling at home from the first moment on you enter his house. I just can recommend to stay at La Belle Maison if you want to have an unforgettable stay in Basel. :-)
This is a true Bed and Breakfast. Jean makes you feel right at home even before you arrive. He is a superb host and interesting to talk to. Jean organises mission trips to Africa to bring aid to a school for AIDS orphans. All the proceeds of the BNB go to this cause!
La Belle Maison is exactly that, a beautiful home. Very luminous and well decorated. The beds are also very comfortable, had a really good night's sleep! The location is also ideal, just 10 minutes walk from the center.
La belle maison - wirklich ein sehr schönes Haus, auch die Zimmer hell und mit viel Geschmack eingerichtet; und das alles sehr gut gelegen in Basel; - perfekte Gastgeber, man fühlt sich sofort zuhause und willkommen. Auf jeden Fall sehr empfehlenswert!
Jean and Monika are wonderful hosts! We had a short, but memorable stay. Thanks for the home made bread and jam, nyum! The house is superb, easy to get to and Basel is well worth visiting, it is like a jewellery-box, history on every corner. Just good all around ;)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
