Attractive 2 room apartment with access to the seating are in the garden. The apartment is part of a larger home, however, has an entirely private / separate entrance. It is quietly located and well-lit. The furnishing is modern (design furniture) and provides a very warm and homey atmosphere. A fast wireless internet connection is available free of charge and fresh towels and bed-linen are naturally provided as well. A coffee machine and a water boiler (as well as cups and glasses) will also be at your disposal. For guests who are planning to stay a little while longer it may be of interest that there is also a cooking facility with microwave, washer and dryer available, so washing clothes is no problem. The apartment is located close to the train station and the city. Basel boasts an impressive 40 partly world-famous museums. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to simply ask.

Other Things to Note
During ArtBasel and BaselWorld the minimum stay is 5 nights.
This is a nonsmoking appartement.
I recently stayed at Adam's Apple for 18 days while visiting my son and his family and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Peter and Melek were wonderful hosts who made me feel very welcome and were extremely quick to answer any questions I had. The flat was well equipped, bright, spotlessly clean and very quite. The bed and sofa were comfortable. The small kitchen had everything I needed to prepare a meal and is even equipped with a dishwasher and a washing machine. I felt the flat was actually nicer then depicted in the photo's on Airbnb. Wifi was fast and the flat had brochures and maps of the area and Peter had some great suggestions of things to do around Basel.
Outside is a lovely garden area and green space. The # 10 tram is a short 4 minute walk from the flat and you can be in Basel in less then 10 minutes. Overall rating is definitely a 5 out of 5.
I stayed at Adam's Apple apartment for 9 nights in June during the Art Basel fair.
The apartment is located in a beautiful and quite residential hill four minutes walking distance from the tram. The apartment looks much nicer from real.
It is nicely decorated, meticulously clean and very luminous. The bed and sofa bed (which is not the one shown in this picture) are very comfortable. The apartment have all you need, TV, radio, wifi, fridge, dish washer, clean towels and sheets and fresh bread, jam and drinks at my arrival. I felt like being at home. The hosts are two incredible nice husband and wife who always make sure my accommodation was comfortable enough. I highly recommend Adam's Apple. It is better then a 5 star hotel. Thank you Adam's Apple. See you next year!
My 6 week stay at Adam's Apple was absolutely wonderful, and I would fully recommend staying here! This was my first AirBnB experience and it was a pleasure.
Peter and Melek were a delight - warm and friendly hosts, who really made me feel welcome. I was working hard whilst I was here, and so needed a quiet, relaxing, and safe place to live - and this was just that.
The tram (number 10) takes just 4 minutes to get to the centre of Basel city (Theater stop) and yet this area (Binningen) is green and quiet, and like being in the countryside. You can just hear the trams, church bells, and occasional airplane in the distance - lovely. As a woman working abroad, on my own, I felt very safe here, it is a nice neighbourhood and I felt I could always ask Peter, Melek, or my other upstairs neighbours in the house for help (or company) if I needed. The flat was not the absolute cheapest place to stay but it was not excessively expensive at all, and it was more than worth a little extra for having hosts like Peter and Melek, and for such a safe and pleasant location.
The flat is extremely well equipped, with a large living room and bedroom, and the bathroom (with a shower) is up the steps which are visible in one of the photographs. There is a little kitchenette up there too, with 2 electric hobs, sink, microwave, washing machine, and dishwasher, and a large fridge with an ice box / mini freezer section in the main room - so I had all I needed to self catering and do washing. Restaurants in Switzerland are very expensive so this was very important for me to budget...
The garden outside was just starting to become green as Spring arrived, and was very lovely in the sunshine, I can imagine it is really wonderful in the Summer.
I look forward to staying in contact with my new Swiss friends, Peter and Melek, and returning in the future!
Peter and Melek were extremely friendly and helpful hosts, very quick response from the first communication. The apartment is in a lovely spot in Basel, very clean and has everything you would need for a short or long stay.
I had a great stay at Peter Adam's place. It is clean and located on a beautiful green area of Basel. Peter is very nice and helpful.
Peter and Melek were wonderful and very friendly, open hosts. They tried to make my stay as comfortable as possible.
Because of work I just had little time to enjoy the nice and quite neighberhood. Therefore I was very happy to have such a nice appartment to stay - I felt like back home.
Many thanks for the nice stay.
We had a wonderful time at Adam’s Apple, thank you Melek and Peter!
It was quiet, comfortable and we enjoyed the surroundings, especially the backyard where we could relax in the evening.
The hosts are a great couple, very friendly and welcoming.
