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 three 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!

  • Jean was a great host, hospitable and flexible. We ended up getting in late and he was very accommodating. He was always there to answer all our inquiries as well as provide further detail upon request. The house itself is lovely as can be. Thanks again Jean! Slainte!

  • Jean var en jätte trevlig och välkomnande värd. Rummen var rena och fräscha och även badrummen. Frukosten var fantastisk och jean hade bakat bröden själv och serverade även hemmagjord marmelad. Kan varmt rekommendera att stanna här.

  • I had a fantastic experience at La Belle Maison. Room number 3 is cheerful, spacious and cozy, and I appreciated the little kitchen on the same floor. The neighborhood is safe and quiet, with a few grocery stores within just a few minutes walk. Buses are nearby, and the train station as well as the airport are easily accessible from this location. I particularly enjoyed Jean and Monica's hospitality during my stay. Jean did everything to make me feel welcome, giving me tips and insight into the best places to visit, and making sure I knew my way.

    I highly recommend La Belle Maison for comfortable accommodation and good company!

  • Jean is a great host. Always helpful and friendly, gives you a lot of advice if you want to go sightseeing and he has a beautiful mindset. The house is also really nice to look at from inside and out. No reasons to complain whatsoever (except maybe the weather when I was visiting, but I doubt Jean's responsible for that even though he apologized for it)
