What do you like about Basel? It is small, quaint, and easy to access. It's not one of those scary cities where you have to stick to the main roads because if you stray from them you'll get beaten/lost/shot/disgusted by the dirtiness of the place. It's completely safe and often very fun to just let yourself wander around the small side streets. It's pretty and it's cute, and while there may not be THAT much to do, just walking around is calming and refreshing.
What do you dislike about Basel? Being in Switzerland, it's quite expensive, often quite overly conservative, and sometimes the people are a bit backwards and/or anti-foreign to an extreme. After about 5 years it may seem to be a little bland and like there's nothing to do, unless you immerse yourself properly into the native culture.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? The center of town is the nicest part; also around the Rhine and some of the smaller streets around the city are great.
How expensive is it? Eh. Really expensive.
Is it safe? Insanely so. You can have almost no worries about anything at all.
How is the weather? Dreary at times, insanely hot at others, and completely eratic the rest of the time. Expect snow around Easter.
Additional thoughts? It's a great city. Really it is.
