Ideally located top floor flat in Kleinbasel, within walking distance from old town, river & fairground/congress center. Bus & tram stop around the corner. The guest room with a double bed (140 x 200 cm) is quiet and sunlit with a private balcony.
The top floor flat is wonderfully located in Kleinbasel within walking distance to the river, the city center and the fair/congress grounds. The guest room with a double bed (140 x 200 cm) faces south and has a private balcony with a view on the Cathedral on the other side of the river. Bedroom and toilet are private, the shower in the second bathroom is shared with me. Breakfast is included but on a self-service basis as on most days I leave early for work. The jewel of this flat is the large terrace that runs on both sides and almost doubles the living space in the summer months. In the winter the fireplace in the living room makes for coziness.
The guests have access to the kitchen, the dining/living area (with cable TV) and the terraces.
Washing machine and tumble dryer are available upon request to guests who stay at least two nights.
The neighborhood is lively and features plenty of smaller and bigger shops, restaurants, bars, cafés, cultural institutions and the nearby riverbank. On a few days in July the Basel Tattoo is held just around the corner. The fairgrounds, congress center as well as the old town can be reached on foot in no more than 10 minutes.
Bus and tram stops are just around the corner. Both directly connect to the train station, the bus also to the German train station (Badischer Bahnhof).
Other Things to Note
The local guest tax of 3.50 Swiss Francs per person is included in the rate. In exchange you will get the so-called mobility ticket for the entire stay allowing you to use public transportation in and around Basel free of charge. The reservation confirmation is valid for the use of public transport (2nd class) from EuroAirport or from the Basel rail stations (zones 10 and 13/EuroAirport) to the hotel on the day of arrival.
This is a non-smoking appartment. Smoking is only permitted on the balcony and terraces.
External visitors are not allowed in the flat without my consent.
Washing machine and tumble dryer are not to be used in my absence.
There are no words to describe the wonderful time we had in Sylvia's home, she is an adorable human being who I am extremely happy to have met during our stay in Basel. The apartment and room are beyond expectations, clean, neat, tidy, excellent location, beautiful. Her kindness and willingness to help made our stay justo perfect! I felt as if I was staying with relatives in Switzerland, highly and totally recommend this place!!!! Thanks Sylvia hope to see you again next year :)
Sylvia was a superlative host! I was so happy, she s a very nice person, everything was perfect, the house is pretty and near baselworld.
Sylvia is such a wonderful host. So thoughtful and always going out of her way to help.
Durch die perfekte Wegbeschreibung und das Mobility-Ticket gelangte ich schnell vom Airport in die Wohnung. Ich wurde sehr freundlich begrüßt und bekam Wohnung und Zimmer gezeigt. Wohnung und Zimmer sind hell, freundlich und sehr gemütlich. Alles zu meiner größten Zufriedenheit. Ich erhielt zusätzliche Information über Basel durch Stadtplan, Infoprospekte und Fahrpläne der Trambahn. Die Wohnung ist ruhig und zentral gelegen. Das Frühstück war sehr gut und ich habe gut geschlafen. Ich meine Gastgeberin Sylvia und ihre Wohnung wärmstens weiter empfehlen!
Sylvia has put a lot of time and care in styling and decorating her sunny apartment. I loved the outsize balconies and the view over the city. The location is just a ten minutes walk from the town centre (die Altstadt) and within a few minutes you are at the bank of the Rhine.
The communication with Sylvia has been extremely good!
I can strongly recommend her place if you're planning a stay in Basel.
Bei Sylvia kriegt der Begriff Gastfreundschaft eine ganz neue Bedeutung. Soviel Freundlichkeit, Offenheit und Gastfreundschaft habe ich noch nirgends erlebt. Vielen Dank Sylvia für die tolle Zeit bei Dir. Ich freue mich bereits auf den nächsten Aufenthalt bei Dir. Herzliche Grüsse, Pete
When I discovered travelling about 40 years ago I became addicted right away. Since then I have been to many countries, to all continents but Oceania, with friends, a partner, as a family, and alone. My language skills perfectly complement my desire to communicate with the people I meet and to get a better picture of their lives and thoughts. I prefer private rooms to hotels for the same reason. And when circumstances don't allow me to travel my guests bring the world to me. Other hobbies include reading, dancing (salsa), movies. I am uncomplicated and discreet both as a guest and a host.
