sub renting in Basel: "Problems finding an accomodation during the fair?" Top 5 Page for this destination Basel Hotel Tip by Myndo

Basel Hotels: 36 reviews and 51 photos

During the big fairs Basel often has an accomodation problem.
Especially the clock and yewellery fair in autumn is well known for that.
All the hotels, Motels and hostels can be booked out for months ahead.
If you are one of the people that do have to be here at these times, there is newer possibility called "Basel lodging".
Of course I did not try it (I live here already), but I heard they are quite good, but NOT cheap.

So here is what they offer:
During these fairs, residents of Basel rent out their appartments to the visitors. Organisation goes over an external site that also looks into the cleaning, the laundry and maintaining of the apartments - as if it was a hotel room.
They also provide transfer from their central reservation desk and breakfasts at restaurants close to the apartments.

Unique Qualities: others that offer this sort of accomodation:
