First I want to remark, that Amer is a very trustworthy person, who offered me an experience of mere luxury at a very reasonable price! It was "ART Basel"-time - when Basel is full of tourists - and I was very happy finding HIS offer! As I didnt have much planning time, had tried in another renting-platform before, whose landlords wanted more thant double price at those days... and were mainly situated outside of Basel or didnt even answer!
Amers place is quite close to the center in a very calm and beautiful surrounding. AND: Amers appartment offered me my own room, private wardrope, a water-bed (!) in which I had the best reling sleep ever! AND: I had my own bathroom, lots of towels and bathing-gown, I received all informations about tramways and where to go for shopping, sightseeing etc. I could prepare tea or coffee, feeling completely free to come or go - having my own key. Amer and a friend of his, I had the pleasure meeting too, are extraordinary friendly, helpful and integre persons, I wish only nice and valuing guests like me ;-)
Allthough it was my first visit in Basel, I felt like having "a nest" there - which gave me the basis, to do my work and leisure in utmost ease and joy. If you visit Basel, feel lucky, if you get the chance to stay at Amers place.
I would never have expected private rental being so much more wonderful than hotels or pensions, Ive been in since now. This START (my first one at any rental platform!) was the best argument continuing to do so again :-))))
