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!
I stayed at La Belle Maison with my boyfriend and 2 other friends and it was a very comfortable stay. Jean is an amazing host, he's very welcoming. He makes you feel at home and takes the time to get to know you. Jean also makes an excellent breakfast, his homemade bread and jams are a must try! I recommend La Belle Maison for anyone going to Basel really, whether you're going alone, with your partner or with anyone. If you want the best Basel experience, La Belle Maison hosted by Jean is the perfect choice. La Belle Maison is also VERY close to the city, a 7 minute walk and you're there!
Great place to stay in Basel! Close to everything and Jean is a great host. Took the time to give us a map and show us where to go in Basel. Breakfast with homemade bread is yummy.
Our stay at la belle maison was perfect. The owner is a great host, very friendly and he makes you feel very welcome. The house is located in a silent street and clise enough to walk into the center.
A perfect place to stay if you visit Basel.
It was very easy to find the house. From the first moment we met Jean he made us feel like home. He gave us all the instructions needed to be en Basel (Such as buses, places to visit or restaurants).
A very nice host and better person. The room was nothing of other world but more than enough to stay some nights. I recomend Jean to everyone.
Very wonderful experience in Basel and Jean's house! The host is very nice and prepared the toys for our little Ray especially. And we were told the ways and beautiful sences around the city. Good host and nice house! Highly recommended!
Wundeschönes Haus, sympathische, aufgeschlossene Gastgeber, verbindliche, unkomplizierte Kommunikation. Wärmstens zu empfehlen!
Alles wunderbar! Toller Gastgeber, sehr znetral gelegenes Airbnb, perfekte Betreuung.
