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 is an excellent host! Very kind, generous and gentlemanly. He will give lots of good advice and help you plan your trip if you need it. He also makes an excellent breakfast, home-made bread. Location is good. Beautiful old house, and beautiful garden. All around great experience!
Jean was patient in waiting for our later than anticipated arrival. A strike in Germany had disrupted our plans to arrive around 16:00-17:00. Unfortunately without a working phone or internet we weren't able to notify him in advance. We ended up getting to La Belle Maison around 18:00 instead. Jean was very helpful in giving us a map of Basel where he highlighted some things for us to check out during our short stay. La Belle Maison is true to it's name; and it has a great location. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Jean is very passionate about helping people. Jean allowed us to keep our bags at the house while we explored the city before leaving in the evening.
First of all I have to say that is was a very nice stay and we felt all the time welcome at Jean's house. Jean was a perfect host!
At first he gave us several useful informations about the city, including two maps. He told us what we can do and what is interesting to see in Basel. Then he reservatet a table in a nice restaurant for us. At the night the street was pretty quiet, no traffic. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, not to soft and not to hard. In the morning we had Jean's breakfast which was rich and is worth the little surcharge. At the end the check-out was very uncomplicated.
1ère expérience Airbnb, 1ère fois en Suisse : 1 belle expérience & 1 belle rencontre !
Jean est un hôte formidable : savoir-vivre & partage sont à l'honneur !
Proche du centre de Bâle - très bien desservie en transport (même pour se rendre au Vitra Design Museum à Weil - de l'autre côté de la frontière).
Je vous recommande "la Belle Maison".
Jean is a very nice guy with interesting sense of humor. He welcomed us with a lot of useful information about Basel's places to go. His house is characteristics and tidy. The room is very spacious with comfortable beds. It is definitely a good choice of staying at Jean's place.
