You need a place to sleep in Basel?
We offer a simple but cozy sleeping room for a single person or a couple and a small living room, both in the mansard (4th floor, no elevator) of our house. You have your private restroom with cold running water. Shower is on another floor and shared.

The space

We offer a sleeping room for a single person and a small living room, both in the mansard (4th floor, no elevator) of our house. You have your private restroom with cold running water (potable). Here in the attic floor you have some peace and quiet and privacy – apart from the creaky wooden floor. In summertime it's sometimes warm up here, but you can sleep with open windows.

The Shower is situated in our flat on the ground floor. It can/must be shared with us. You recieve bed linen and towels from us.

Breakfast is not included, but you find a nice italian café around the corner (open tue - sa).

We accept bookings EXCLUSIVELY via the airbnb-website. The price is non-negotiable. You can book 3 months in advance. Please complete the airbnb-verification before you book.

Guest access

Feel like at home…

Interaction with guests

The rooms belong to you while your stay. In rare cases, someone needs to fetch something from the attic and ascends to the 4th floor because of that. Apart from that you have some peace and quiet.
If you wish, we e-mail you a PDF prior to your trip with a few informations that we regard as useful.
The door of Katja and Jean-Luc is always open if you have questions or need something. We are locals in Basel since childhood and will be glad to help you with any kind of tips.

Other things to note

We clean the rooms after every guest and wash the bed- and bath-linen. But our house is 80 years old, and we have the washing facilities of a private household. We can not provide the hygiene-standard of a 5-stars-hotel. In exchange we are a little cheaper…

I got a lot of privacy at the top floor, which is valiable if you are staying with someone. The neighborhood is quiet and close to the center and easy to get to from and to the airport. I liked staying there and would do it again.

Katja und ich sind in Basel aufgewachsen und leben mit den zwei Kindern Jan und Anna im ruhigen und zentrums-nahen Gotthelf-Quartier. Die zwei Zimmer unter dem Dach brauchen wir nur sehr selten, deshalb stellen wir sie gerne zum Übernachten zur Verfügung.
Wir möchten eine einfache, saubere Schlafgelegenheit anbieten für Gäste, die froh sind, wenn sie nicht zu viel Geld ausgeben müssen. Wir versuchen, unseren Gästen soviel Privatsphäre wie möglich zu lassen, lernen aber auch gerne neue und nette Leute kennen.
