  • Amazing stay at the Flat of Rock! I travel to Basel a few times a year on business and was looking for a more homely and authentic place to stay than a hotel. SVen and Sandy's apartment is very well-located (1.5 blocks from the SBB train station) and has everything you need for a short stay: stocked fridge, private bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms. The rooms are decorated in a personal and artistic style.

    Better than a hotel is the bonus of a substantial living and dining room where you can work, entertain, hang out and listen to music. I entertained twice while I was there: one night I was joined by 4 work colleagues to have a glass of wine and listen to music; another night I entertained 9 people at an Apero organized by Sven and Sandy with typical Basel foods and a range of beverages. I received a lot of positive comments on these events, which were more personal and special than sitting in another restaurant (which yo do a lot when you are travelling).

    Sven and Sandy were wonderful hosts - warm and organized - and I very much appreciated the airport pick-up when I arrived from Munich. I would definitely stay there again, and a number of my colleagues asked for the booking information.

  • Book with confidence! Actually, don't book at all because I want it for myself! ;)

  • My wife and I loved our stay in Sandy and Sven's flat in Basel. The flat was spacious and well-appointed. Sandy and her son met us at the train station, showed us back to flat, pointing out the nearby supermarket as we passed. She showed us through the flat and left us with contact information and a well-stocked kitchen! It was wonderful not to have to shop for breakfast supplies for our first day in Basel. Sandy and Sven provided much informative literature about Basel and Switzerland that was most helpful, and, before leaving, Sandy gave us directions to the nearby historic city center. We loved that the flat was convenient to the train station and the old inner city--a great location! We looked forward to our return to the flat each evening; it was a wonderful "home" for us to return to after adventures to the Rhine Fall, Zurich, Lucerne, the Alps, and the beautiful Rhine River between Mainz and Koblenz. We have rented many apartments in the US and abroad, but I believe this was the nicest we've found with the most helpful hosts. Our thanks to Sandy and Sven for making our stay in Switzerland so enjoyable.

  • Sven and Sandy were wonderful hosts, with a breakfast and food provided in the fridge and a welcome ride from the airport. They ooze hospitality and are great people to boot: if you stay in Basel this is quiet enough but very close to the centre of town. A great place and great location all year round!

  • I had a great stay. Very close to the SBB station. Quiet, clean, spacious. No remarks.

    November 2013
  • This was our first experience of using airbnb and it was wonderful. Sandy and Sven were responsive in communicating with us beforehand and Sven happily met us at the railway station, walked us to the apartment and explained how to use everything. We were delighted to discover that they had stocked the fridge with breakfast supplies (and chocolate!) just for us and the apartment was in every way comfortable and convenient.
    Being so close to the old town in Basel was great and we also had a tram route right in our street and the SBB station just five minutes away. It couldn't have been better and we would recommend Sven and Sandy's hospitality highly to anyone planning a visit to the lovely city of Basel.

About
We are unconventional!! The main reason why we rent out our flat is very simple and complicated at the same time: Sandy & I are a semi-patchwork-family (try to find out what this is using a very popular website we cannot use on airbnb.com ;-)) and therefore have two flats. Since we are very flexible our second "city flat" is open to friends & guests worldwide and we enjoy it hosting you guys! We love children, life and respect other peoples thinkings! And we love each other ;-))
