The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Bahnhof and has a tram stop just across the road which helped us travel to the Old Town and back with ease. Rooms & bathrooms are neat and clean with room size larger than the average Ibis. Breakfast was quite good as well. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and...

Our travel agent booked this hotel for us. Reasonable rates, and included a good full buffet breakfast, and Wi-Fi. Location was good and easily walkable to train station and tram. They gave us a free pass to ride the tram and bus, although we were never asked to show it. Room was very small, but well designed. Modern décor and...

Helpful staff, the location is a bit quiet but it is near the train station, which makes it very convenient. it has a tram stop right next to the hotel. Room is comfortable but they don't provide tissue paper, except toilet rolls.

Pretty basic but well located, comfortable and well priced. If you need somewhere to stay for a couple of days this is fine. Station, supermarket, shops a few minutes walk away. Tram stop right outside as well. Within ten minutes of walking you are by the river.

I was in Basel as part of a large business group and we were accommodated at the Ibis. When I discovered we were staying at the Ibis, my heart sank as I had a very poor stay at a London Ibis last year and vowed never to stay at another one. As with others, the hotel is basically appointed but...

It's good to hear that we have managed to improve the perception of the ibis brand! I'm taking this opportunity to mention that at this time of the year and considering the pretty low temperatures that we are having at the moment in Basel, especially at night, the air cooling system has not been activated yet. I hope your entire...

Stayed for a night before taking the train to Zurich Airport for our flight home. Hotel was near the train station and the #16 tram took us straight into the old town.
