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!

Just stay at Jean's place. Don't even think about it! Gorgeous house, spacious room and an amazing host. I only have good words for Jean. We went with our little husky and she was perfect in there. Jean has a big heart for animals and we really appreciate that. His homemade bread is super good!!! It won't be another Basel trip if it's not in Jean's house. Thanks!!

We stayed at Jean's place for one night and we loved it! Beautiful old house with a modern touch. Check-in instructions (will be sent to your personal email after the confirmation) were as clear as they could be. Jean was a very nice and polite man. He gave us a lot of good advice about the city and about Switzerland in general. Would have loved to talk with him more and drink some coffee together - very nice host indeed! Anti & Anna-Liisa

Jean's place is super easy to get to. Direct bus line from the train station. Not far from the city center. Jean was super helpful to me and my directions, being home when we arrived, accommodating our schedules, telling us what to see and giving us detailed maps to get where we needed to go, etc. Jean also took time to get to know us. I highly recommend staying at Jean's

We stayed one night at Jeans place and had a relaxed and nice time. Everything was like in the description and we felt very comfortable. Although our arrival was delayed, Jean waited for us with a warm welcome and a delicious dinner! :)

It was really nice stay here.The house is very lovely. Jean is very easy to talk. He gave me a transport ticket and many good advice of the city. The bus stop is really easy to find only one or two minutes by walk and directly to the train station. I would like to stay in this place if I visit Basel again!
