About this listing
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. 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.
Breakfast is of course included.
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).

Thank you for all of your kind arrangement! The room was very comfortable. l received a mobility pass, which the host prepared for me in advance. Because of this, the transfer was very easy! Also, she told me a good way to go to a museum, which was the best way to get there.
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Basel.
Sylvia ist eine tolle Gastgeberin, wir haben einen schönen Wohnbereich vorgefunden indem wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt haben.
Sollte es uns mal wieder nach Basel ziehen, wäre Sylvia unsere erste Adresse.
Vielen, vielen Dank für alles.
Voor aankomst was het contact met Sylvia al goed. Mijn mails werden direct beantwoord en haar informatie was goed. Zij wachtte op mijn komst en heette me hartelijk welkom. Daarna stelde zij haar huis voor mij open. Ik kreeg duidelijke praktische aanwijzingen en tips. Haar penthouse is mooi en overzichtelijk.
Die Gastgeberin hat mich persönlich empfangen und mir gleich alles erklärt. Der Empfang war sehr herzlich und blieb auch so während meines 3-tägigen Aufenthaltes. Die grosszügige Wohnung bietet viel Platz. Die Lage ist top, in 2 Min ist man am Rhein und kann Basel von seiner schönsten Seite geniessen. Diese Unterkunft wird in Zukunft meine erste Wahl in Basel sein.
Sylvia is a great host. Very welcoming and generous, and a pleasure to talk to. The apartment is close to the river, which is a big plus in the current heatwave. A very good airbnb experience.
Sylvia was very nice and welcoming, she sent me very detailed info on how to reach the apartment as well as some good tips about the city. The house is really nice, spacious and sunny, and breakfast on the terrace was just one of the many facilities I was provided. The neighbourhood is really nice, quite but well served, very close to the city centre and few minutes from the river.
I really enjoyed my staying!
Sylvia er en fantastisk vært og værelset har måske én af Basel´s bedste udsigter. Kan varmt anbefales.
About the Host, Sylvia
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.
