East-West Riverside Hotel, Basel, Switzerland
Over priced camping experience
This hotel was terrible! I have no idea how this place is rated well on trip advisor?? There is no aircon in the rooms just a pedestal fan, which may not be so bad in winter but if your going in summer and the temps are 36• like we experienced then it's a very uncomfortable stay an almost impossible sleep! There are pubs and bars on either side of the hotel and they are ridiculous noisy so forget about leaving your windows open for any breeze or fresh air If your room windows are not over the noisy pubs they looking straight into the glass elevator, absolutely no privacy! The room description advised the room came with bottled water this is not true. When I asked for some water I was refused despite having proof on the paper work. There was also no where for our bags to sit but on the floor and we could not watch TV unless our curtains where open (with it getting dark at 11pm and the noise from the bars all night and morning the curtains need to be closed) The electrical work and all the new renos seem to have been done very poorly, the coke machine outside our room leaked a large pool of water which a extension lead ran through. Not safe! Overall with the heat, the noise and the above notes an more it felt like we were camping

One to remember.
Great stay in quiet area of central Paris. Bernard was a great host and room was just right. Nearby restaurants and walks along the Siene made for a great 24 hours.
