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....

Good hotel. Clean, quiet, good breakfast, friendly and polite staff. Very central location, a couple of minutes walk from the train station, and an easy walk to old town. Not sure why i need two hundred characters to say more :)

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...

Very easy to access. Just around the corner at the train station. Nice and friendly staff. Standard ibis bedroom. No airco but if you open the window it is not too noisy. Nice choice for breakfast. Tram stops in front of the hotel.

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).

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.

Here for a business trip. The fact that there is AC in the room makes all the difference. Hotel is quite at night, so you cna rest. Breakfast is adequate with your regular items. Tram station just infront of the hotel makes it easy to get around. Few minutes ot the train station
