two-week rental in Basel

I am looking for an apartment in Basel online, but don't want to commit from abroad.

Rather than take a hotel for two weeks and look for a nice apartment, does anyone have any suggestions on temporary affordable housing for a few weeks?

Re: two-week rental in Basel

We rented a small place of them for 2 weeks downtown Basel, had 2 beds,bathroom/toilet a tv, small kitchen and breakfast every day, other then that,the place was ours.

Good rates and back then ( last year, not sure if they still do it) a free ticket to use public transport in Basel.. = winner !

Ask for their place in the " Dufourstrasse ", sweet little old lady manages them there,very friendly.

Migros is nearby so you can prepare your own meals also in your room..

Re: two-week rental in Basel

You're struggling because of Basel World.

I believe the tourist office has rooms/flats for rent over that period; they act as an agency for private individuals in Basel who wish to cash in on the Basel World exhibition.

Or there's this thing:

Re: two-week rental in Basel

After searching for a while, we finally picked up a great studio apartment... from the YMCA - great price and it's in the middle of the city.
