If you walk 2 minutes you are in basel-stadt at the morgartenring, where you can take the bus or tram. By tram you have 5 minutes to the city centre. When you walk 2 minutes in the other direktion you have two supermarkets, a pharmacy and a bakery. The street is a bit noisy. I share the appartment with two guys. They are mostly somewhere else. You can also sit on the rooftop, cause it's in the second floor.
