About

Yes, we’re a hotel. And – with that said – not your home. But what we’d love is for you to move around as freely as you would if you were at home.

Maybe you’re familiar with the French word “bassin”? Or the Italian word “bacino”? “Bassena” is the Austrian amalgamation of the two terms. Originally, it referred to a communal water tap, which was accessible to all residents of a building. But it wasn’t just where you’d go to get water back in the day; it was also the spot where you’d catch up on the latest news. It was a meeting place where people would exchange thoughts and ideas, laugh and chitchat. And that’s exactly what this hotel is like.

We and our guests see eye to eye. We’ll provide hospitality and community if that’s what you’re looking for. Or we’ll give you your space, if that’s what you prefer. Together with our guests, we live our own interpretation of a 21st-century hotel stay. If you’d like peace and quiet, that’s what you’ll get. And if you’re looking for a person to chat with, you’ll find someone – in the kitchen, if nowhere else. The perfect spot to casually sojourn.
