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!
Es war alles so wie wie beschrieben und angekündigt. Ich war sehr zufrieden.
Das "La Belle Maison" kann ich jedem Basel-Besucher empfehlen. Das Haus ist schön, die Zimmer sind gut und auch die Lage ist günstig. Der Vermieter Jean hilft bei allen Fragen und ist sehr, sehr gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit...Gutes Frühstück mit selbst gebackenem Brot gibt es zudem noch dazu!
Das Haus Belle Maison ist ein Ort des inneren Friedens, man fühlt sich vom ersten Moment an Willkommen. Das hat mich persönlich berührt. Der Gastgeber Jean ist ein humorvoller, intressanter Mensch mit Herz. Das Morgenessen mit dem selbstgebackenen Brot und die Athmosphäre in der Küche, sehr empfehlenswert. Danke Jean für diese positive Erfahrung! Ein Geheimtip!
Jean is an incredibly welcoming host that easily makes you feel comfortable and at home. He has led an amazing life, so make sure to at least see his photo book. And make sure to have breakfast there, he's bakes fresh bread nearly every day! His home is wonderfully decorated and the rooms are very clean. My husband and I stayed there when attending the teachings of HH the Dalai Lama, and staying with him gave us the opportunity to talk to a Swiss-Tibetan family who was also staying with him. Great people there.
The description on airb&b was very accurate and the house was within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go.
Jean is a really great host. I absolutely enjoyed my stay at his house. He had a lot of recommendations what to do and to see in Basel. I can honestly say, that it was a really inspirational experience and I'm really grateful for this. The breakfast is great, the room is nice and clean and there is a kitchen, you can use to make some tea or coffee. The location is perfect, if you want to explore what Basel has to offer.
If I get back to Basel, I would definitely come back to Jean's house.
Jean was helpful and available. The house is very comfortable and close to everything! Would definitely recomend!
