    The receptionist provided some adaptors to the swiss electric power. You have welcome water at the room, free o charge. Easy reachable by the tram, just 10min to the city center.

    The internet at 6th floor is not working well, so I needed to go to the reception hall to have access. I expected to have free public transport in Basel (as usual if you have your accomodation in the hotels located in Basel), however Hotel Alfa is located exactly at the end of Basel, beginning of Biersfelden. Therefore, I needed to buy 2 x 6 tram/bus tickets, with a total cost of 2 x 18.40 CHF, to reach the city center.

    Very good

    Very welcoming and caring Reception staff.

    Breakfast: some foreigners not knowing about boiling one's own eggs may create an unpleasant incident by helping themselves with other people's unattended boiling eggs! It was my case. I survived but laughed at the assault of the owner!! Do give verbal or written instructions about this.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    The staff were very nice and helpfull. Breakfast was small and nice. We took the family room and it was very big and nice, with a great balcony. There's a station right outside the hotel that takes you to the city center within 9 minutes. perfect!

    I didn't like that the separate room had a single bed and not the double bed.

    The tram stop was handy

    The beds were just horrible. So hard, had to ask the staff for two extra blankets just to try and make it a little comfy. Barely slept the nights we stayed there and the pillows were even worse.
