GAIA: Basel’s organic hotel

Your wellbeing as our guest is important to us – and equally, so is the future of the next generations and our lovely planet. So in your minibar, for example, at the breakfast buffet, and even in the spa, you will find exclusively organic products: sustainably produced and bursting with flavour and nutrients.

GAIA: Basel's zero-waste hotel

Sustainability in every area is fundamental for us. By 2020, the GAIA hotel will be a zero-waste hotel. We are working towards this with numerous initiatives:

  • Our used coffee grounds go to the Urban Agriculture Basel association, where they are used to cultivate quality mushrooms.
  • Our stale bread goes to the elephants at the Basel Zoo – they love it!
  • Our used guest soaps are recycled by the Sapocycle foundation and redistributed in vulnerable areas.
  • Our organic waste is composted in a Wormup composter and turned into humus
  • To clean your rooms we use exclusively environmentally-friendly, non-toxic cleaning products from Steinfels-Swiss.

We are delighted to be able to welcome you with us in Basel!

Your hosts, the Geyer family
