    O.K for a short stay, basic room.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The location is quite good. The room is fine and fairly large.

    There is no air conditioning so in the hot summer it is unearable - if you open your windows, on either side of the hotel, it is too loud at night (people hang out in the front courtyard and speak very loudly or watch football games or yell to the ladies of the evening around the neigborhood). One staff member was very helpful, another not entirely friendly. Lastly, the breakfast was poor.

  • Single
    5.4

    Noisy neighbourhood in the morning hours.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Free 2-days tickets for public transport included in the price of the room, welcome kit with maps and tourist information, parking next to the hotel, wide room, very kind staff

    A wall very close outside the window, no river view

  • Couple
    9.2

    The room, the location.

    The air in the room was quite dry during the night. There was also some noise from street and from other rooms.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very good location. I like the idea of crossing a bridge every morning to get to the "Big" Basel. The room is well designed for the size, clean with comfortable beds. We will stay there again.

  • Single
    9.6

    Beautiful room, huge with comfy beds

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Hotel balade is a practical - efficient - modern middle range hotel. Exactly what we need for a one night stay comming for a familly event. Not luxurious - just ok.

    The pillows are much to soft the noise on the plazza makes it alomst impossible to open windows, and their no airconditioning.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Incredibly clean and new. Excellent location for visiting the main attractions in Basel. We were even able to find free parking not too far away.

  • Single
    5.0

    you can stay in the hotel until 16 o'clock, but have to pay more, not far from the center of the city

    no bath, no style... more similar to youth hotel, haevy door to open..., parking a bit complicated... difficult to go into the garage with a big car, I don't like that small part of the city...

  • Single
    6.6

    Ok rooms, nothing fancy, but just enough to sleep during the business trip.

    Located in a red district of Basel. Annoying and loud conversations on the streets which are disturbing to a guest. On the way to a hotel from tram station, crossing through some weird neibourhoods... Not nice

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Very convenient for you to each museum and the hotel receptionist is very friendly and detail introduction to the environment.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Location near fair, river, old town... Nice room, nice staff, good bed, free internet

    Internet logon was a bit complicated, price was just a mite steep for the facility

  • Couple
    6.2

    It's nice and clean inside. You feel comfortable.

    The location. It's in a hot spot, we had to go through a street with prostituted and this in addition to the bars makes it noisy to sleep if you leave the window open. I would not recommend it to a family.
