Had a wonderful two day stay at this elegant and classically European hotel. Extremely beautiful architecture and interiors. Chandeliers are specataculat. Rooms were a good size with lots of closet space and gorgeous marble bathroom with all the modern amenities. Location is right in the Old Town of Basel and overlooks the Rhine. Had great sundowners at their terrace bar and a wonderful dinner at Cheval Blanc. And despite the superior five star service, the hotel had personal touches such as the white rose on arrival and the homemade jam given to us on departure. Not cheap but so worth it!
