8.4.Very good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Beds very soft and small. The shower gel ran out on day two of a five day stay and was not replenished. Breakfast was really disappointing. Close to trans and buses which is a positive and the local restaurants being only one street away was a benefit. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Need of better maintenance

    Good location. Close to public transportation. Good price. Poor upkeep and maintenance. First room had no power because light fixtures needed installed so breakers were off. Next room was better but could not use outlets unless lights were on. Could not charge phones overnight unless we left the lights on. As others have reported, the sinks don’t drain well. Not major but kind of gross. With some better maintenance I would have given full credit.

    No Aircon made stay very uncomfortable.

    This was my third time staying in Apaliving, Basel...but the first in Summer (Aug 2019). To say the room at night was like a sauna is an understatement, because there’s no air conditioning. The fan in the room did nothing to cool it down below 25 degrees which made it extremely hot, sweaty and uncomfortable. Would not stay during the warm summer months again.

    Excellent Budget Hotel

    Very good budget hotel, clean, friendly and checkin/out pretty flexible and hotel staff keen to help you. If staying in summer may be worth bringing an extra travel fan as there is no A/C so rooms can get very hot!

    Alright if you get a good price.

    Room could have been a bit cleaner but nothing major. Fan in room was welcome given the high temperatures. WiFi was on the slow side. Had to use 4G for video calls.

    The property was easy to check in to on automated machine, as we arrived after the check in desk had closed. It was very clean and easy to access town. It had everything we needed at a good price.

    I was out & about most of the day, but I would say it was a good stay overall. The room has a good space, the toilet & shower was clean. The bed was comfy, sheets were clean, cupboards were spacious. The television, the desk and chairs were added bonus. The complimentary coffee & tea was a plus, however, I would say they should replace the electric kettle with a new and fresh one. The tram stop is about 5 to 7 min walk from the hotel. The SBB train station is about 20 minutes walk thought there’s a tram one can take to the main train station.
