A cosy apartment for travellers who value comfort and convenience. Your big bedroom will be all yours, and I will be sharing the bathroom and the kitchen with you. In the bathroom, you will get some shelves and you are welcome to a bath with salts. You may use enjoy the comfort of a home, cook and use the appliances (incl. a high-speed blender, if you're into smoothies). And, in the evenings, when I'm home, I cook paleo (or vegetarian) meals, so, if you wish, we can even cook/eat together. :)

The space

The room is spacious, bright, and with the sun shining into the window early in the morning. Later, it moves on to the kitchen balcony where it stays all day. If you wish to block all the light from the bedroom as you sleep, that is possible by rolling down the sun shutters.

There are only ten apartments in the entire building, so there are not too many people walking around, but you may hear an occasional neighbour walking down/up the stairs. The apartment itself is located on the second floor, with no elevator.

As the bedroom windows are facing the street, you will hear the cars if you open the window. With a closed window, it is not loud (it has never disturbed me in my sleep).

Guest access

As this is my home, it is equipped with most items needed in a household (except for a hairdryer, microwave and maybe something else I haven't thought of) - you are most welcome to use what I have. This includes (mostly herbal) tea and coffee (also decaf), and, yes, I do have a coffee machine, including a milk frother - I recommend having a nice afternoon cappuccino while sitting on the sunny balcony. ;)

As I said, I will be sharing the kitchen and the bathroom with you, but I'm a very tidy person (and a non-smoker), so I hope that would not be of inconvenience to you. If you wish to smoke, you can do so on the balcony, I don't judge. ;)

Interaction with guests

I work part-time, so some days I'm home all day and others - only in the evening. In the evenings, I will be cooking myself a dinner and you are welcome to cook together with me and/or eat together as well. As I'm passionate about cooking and living healthily, I am happy to exchange ideas about that. I am also working with VR tech, so that's another fun topic you may end up learning about.

If you need any tips on getting around Basel/Switzerland, and any other info, I'm happy to advise and try to help where I can (I get that some things can be a bit confusing in Switzerland).

Other things to note

If you have any questions or special requests, just drop me a message. ;)

This place is extremely pleasant and furnished with very good taste. The host is very discreet and at the same time will do as much as possible to help you find your way in Basel and help you.

Jana is a great and friendly host. She helped to coordinate and organize a smooth check-in and check-out and helped my aunt with a luggage. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the prices and stores in the area and helped my aunt to buy and print the train tickets. I highly recommend this host. Thank you Jana.

I was given a warm welcome, the room is beautiful and Janina had provided lots of storage space, including plenty hangers, and had also made available lots of little extra luxuries like toiletries and my favourite type of magazines. I was welcomed with a latte and delicious home made (healthy) brownies. The flat is clean, bright and tidy, and when we were both there at the same time, I thoroughly enjoyed Janina's company - and being offered lovely home made food when our meal times coincided! Very close to the Migros supermarket and handy for trams and buses. If I am looking for accommodation in Basel again, this will definitely be my first choice.

I really recommend this place! Janina is very sweet, she took me at the train station and gave me an extra umbrella since it was raining! The room is very clean and cozy, as the rest of the house! RJanina is also really good at cooking! She prepared some awesome brownies and pancakes! Thumbs up!

Janica is super nice, and the room is super clean and the place is very easy to reach by tram (only three stops away from the Basel SBB, not far from the city center and the river Rhein actually, in the meantime with a quite neighborhood). I booked the room in the late evening and received quick and warm response from Janina in the early morning the next day. This was my first time visiting Basel and Janina welcomed me at the central train station, so immediately when I got off the train, I was able to get a ticket and jump on the tram with her help. My appointment in the afternoon at the museum HeK thus went on successfully as expected - thanks to Janina's swift responses and helpful advices each time when I texted her - and afterwards I had a very nicer tour along the river Rhein including a wonderful time visiting the Tinguely Museum. My less-than-24-hour stay in Basel was wrapped up with a peaceful view of the old town, and a good sleep at Janina's place. I'd definitely come back next time when I visit Basel again, and continue to explore the city as well as the inspiring conversations with Janina.

야니나는 최고의 호스트 ! ❤️ 진짜 깨끗하고 편하고 좋은 숙소였어요. 집 앞에 대형 마트가 있어서 생활용품이나 먹거리를 쉽게 구입할 수 있고, 중앙역에서도 세 정거장이라 교통면에서도 큰 문제 없어요. 주변은 한적해서 잘때 시끄럽지도 않고, 의사소통에도 전혀 문제가 없었어요. 게다가 바젤에 대해서 많이 알려주기도 하고.... 묵는 동안 불편함이 하나도 없었어요. 저만 알고싶은 에어비앤비이지만, 여기 정말 추천해요. Janina ist beste Hausbesitzerin. ❤️ Die Wohnung war sehr sauber, bequem und gut !!! Und hier war ruhig. Also können Sie gut schlafen. Es gibt einen großen Markt vor der Wohnung. Also kann man etwas(Essen, Lebensmittel...usw) einfach kaufen. Und hier hat kein Problem über den Verkehr. Und wir hatten kein Problem über Gespräch. Sie kann auf gutes Deutsch und gutes Englisch sprechen. Solange ich hier übernachtet habe, fühlte ich sehr bequem. Ich empfehle Ihnen hier.
