Ibis Basel Bahnhof is good hotel near station. Its on walkable distance is an advantage. Pubic transport easy access from out side hotel. Stay in hotel is comfort. Room is big and good in requirement/needs of individual. Neat in clean in room. Plasent stay at Hotel and if you get road side view is good if you like it.

This was a great hotel on all counts.... location, price, clean, super neat all for a great price. We traveled out of the Basel Train Station which is down the street. Easy to get to. We carried our own luggage (with wheels) to the station. The room has a nice open window looking out to the street. The furniture was...

Even though close to the railway station, you won't hear a thing because the rooms are very well soundproofed. Two trams stops are just outside the hotel and provide excellent connection to the centre or anywhere...

We know what to expect and the staff invariably try to help if they are able to. Would always recommend it. It does not have the luxury...

Basel is wonderful. We stayed in this fine city for three days. All of them were spent at the Ibis Basel Bahnhopf. The service was excellent.The hotel clerks were helpful and friendly. As it is about 5 minutes away from the main train station, it is suitably located. It's also close to a park, a zoo, and about a 15...

How could you not have internet complimentary in your stay!! Best part of this hotel is location (Basel is not that big anyway) and reasonable price. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy...food you dont have to worry much...every other restaurant is at walkable distance. Overall 7/10 :)
