The space

The room in the apartment:

You'll stay in a separate bright 18 sqm room in a four room apartment. It has two standard size, separate single beds as on the photos, a wardrobe and a shelf. It looks slightly different now as in the pictures since it is rented until June, but my flatmate will be gone in March. For example, there is a little more deco and heavier window curtains now. =)

I’m staying in another room in the same apartment when I’m home.

There is also an additional living room with a big couch. Further, there are a lot of XBOX 360 games, various versions of the rubic's cubes, juggling spheres, board games - feel free to play! There is also a large, south-facing balcony accessible from the living room, where you are allowed to smoke, if that's your thing.

As written in the short overview - our kitchen is rather old and runs on a small fuse - but everything works. It has an oven, a microwave, a coffee machine, a stove and a few other appliances. You will find a more detailed description once you are here. Attached to the kitchen, there is a dining room with space for 4 persons and a small library - feel free to read as much as you can!

The bathroom is rather small, but renovated a few years ago.

Joye's place was wonderful, clean and spacious, and very close to the city - a nice walk to the historic centers across the water. Her place is very easy to get to from the airport via bus and tram! She had arranged for us to let ourselves in with plenty of directions ahead of time, and when we met her she was sweet and helpful. Thank you Joye for a wonderful stay!

This was my first time staying at an Airbnb and it was fantastic! The day before I arrived, Joye gave me clear suggestions upon arrival; informing me that the regular tram line is under construction, so taking this bus line. Furthermore, because she wasn't able to be there to greet me, she gave me clear instructions on getting into her apartment. Staying at Joye's apartment was the perfect situation for me. I had my own plans with a friend, and she is a very hands-off host but at the same time very easy to talk to when I did have questions. If you're the type of traveler who is more independent and has your own plans, this is the prime apartment for your stay! Enjoy Basel~

Joye was an amazing host :) Even though she couldn't meet me personally, she made sure I could get into the apartment upon my arrival. The communication was easy and pleasurable. The place is very well located and has everything one needs. Would really recommend staying there!
