Stayed here for the Europa Cup Final as we had done on a previous visit to Basel when Liverpool were in town. Good quality hotel foe very expensive Basel. Location great for arrival, the tram directly outside into town or a 20 min walk. Tram again takes you very near the stadium then again a 20 min walk. Staff were very helpful especially after the game when they served us with a smile in the bar.

Had a very good stay for 3 days. The staff was very polite and always helpful. There were a few minor issues, but the way the staff dealt with the problem, nothing to complain about. The location is very good - just 200m from the railway station, and close to a lot of eating joints.

Another style hotel very near to the train station. Exit the station and walk to the right and turn right again, alternatively you can take tram no. 2 or 16 to stop IWB. Just two stops away. Nothing much nearby, but you can take tram no. 2 to the old town. Hotel provide free public transport passes. Room is reasonable size with AC and hair blower. Wifi is good and staff are friendly.

We were driving from Hamburg and called in 30 min. before arriving. "Yes, we have space. Welcome!" Underground garage, very friendly staff, lovely and modern (small) rooms. They even offered free tram passes for going downtown. We walked instead and enjoyed a lovely evening walking around beautiful Basel. A restful night in a very comfortable bed followed by a good breakfast -- and we were ready for our drive south to Italy. Definitely recommend!

Hotel was near the train station and a bus to and from the airport stopped right there. Also there were tram stations there so it mad it easy to go anywhere around Basel from there. The only thing we thought missing was getting much ice at the hotel. They do not have an icemaker. Continental breakfast was very good.

The hotel has a very good location & is near the central train station, has a tram station as well as various bus connections right in front of the hotel. The rooms are not very big, does not have a mini bar, but is clean and has a TV and each room has a good size (not huge) bathroom, with shower, basin & toilet. Breakfast is not included but is served at an extra cost. For a weekend stay, overnight or even more days, not a bad option at all.

Well. This hotel is basic. You get what you pay for, even though Switzerland is expensive. Not that far from the train station (about a 5 - 10 minute walk) and the tram system / stops are a minute or 2 away. So from a location stand point, this is a great location if you want to get around the city from your hotel without the need for a taxi or very long walk. WiFi was ok, but you were given cards to cover each day for the duration of your stay. It's the last thing I need, and very easy to loo... Read more

Guest/s: 1 Night/s: 1 Room: double room * Check in/out: Before I arrived, the wonderful manager Sophie and her staff were able to resolve an issue with my booking. It took a short while to fix things when I checked in, but I am incredibly thankful to the staff for sorting things out! Quick check out with taxi booked for me (early flight). * Location: Adjacent to Basel SBB station. If you exit via the Media Markt/shops entrance rather than the main entrance you'll save yourself a bit of a walk... Read more

for an overnight stay you do not need much more - economical, functional and compact with friendly and efficient staff. We arrived late from the Airport and left after Breakfast by train. The Breakfast buffet, was better than expected for this kind of hotel category! I would recommend.

Close to Basel SBB Bahnhof so very handy for an overnight stop. I have used this hotel several times if I have a late flight into Basel. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably well equipped, and the bar serves food late into the evening. Quite acceptable for a stop-over in Basel.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 1 night at the end of our Swiss holiday as it was very close to the main train station, just over 5 minutes walk. The hotel was nice inside and the staff were very polite and helpful. The room we had was big enough for us, not massive but certainly big enough and clean. The bathroom in the room was very clean and had a lovely power shower. The zoo is a 10 minute walk, as is the Main Street with lots of restaurants, cafes and shops are mainly located. The hot...

Nice location - 1 min from train station, 13 min walk to city center. Hotel is equppied with all necessary things you expect to have in ibis hotel. Breakfast is good, staff friendly and helpful. In price is included free city pass for trams and airport pick-up on arrival that is useful.

My wife and I stayed here for one night before we started our river cruise up the Rhine. The hotel is literally situated 2 blocks behind the main train station (Basel SBB Bahnhof). This was convenient since we arrived by train from Paris. The hotel had all the amenities that we needed and was well furnished. The king-size bed was very comfortable. Also, the room was quiet and the hotel staff most accommodating.

Easy to find, air conditioning worked, bed was comfy, everything was clean. Electrical adapters were leant by reception when ours didn't fit. Continental breakfast well presented and filling. Make sure you check directions, so you don't end up at the wrong Ibis, as some fellow guests did. A short walk from the railway station - ideal. No kettle in the room, but can't have everything.

I visited for 2 nights in September for business. It is perfectly located in Basel for the train station and tram network, this however does have its down side. I was unable to sleep with the window open due to the noise of the Trams rumbling outside my window. This would normally not be an issue however the Air conditioning was not working and the room was 30 degrees Celsius. The staff were excellent and are a credit to the hotel.

Great location very close to the train station ( just turn left out of the station and it's a quick find). Very clean as ibis usually is. Staff is friendly. Was a bit surprised as being an Accor member they only give one free drink here as opposed to a free drink per person as other locations I have used. I find there are inconsistencies with the program. The location is a 15 minute walk from down town. You get a free transit pass which I did not use as I prefer to walk. Great walk to downtown w...

The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the train station and located in a quiet street. Cosy room, decent breakfast and underground parking. Highly recommended for a business trip or family week-end as at walking distance from the zoo and city Centre.
