Stayed here for two nights and found the hotel clean and tidy. Its just outside town off the main drag, about ten minutes walk to town. Ideal if your catching a train as its just over the bridge from the main train station and would only take five minutes to walk. I found the room a little hot as the...

You expect Ibis Hotels to be modern, clearn and with basic amenities. This Ibis is no exception. It is within walking distance from Basel's railroad station. Go out the front entrance and turn left. At the bridge turn left and cross. The hotel is on your left.

If you're looking for a place to sleep and shower while you travel, this is a good choice. It's basic rooms for a decent price in the ever expensive Switzerland. The room is small, but the bathroom is decent and the beds are comfy. The hotel is located two minutes walking from Basel SBB and has two tram lines stopping...

This is a normal Ibis Hotel. A fair value, considering other nearby accomodations. Our room was amazingly quiet even though it was facing the street and the tram came came right by. It's close to the Bahnhof SBB train station and just steps to tram stop. Free local public transportaion ticket provided for duration of stay as well as free...

My wife and I have stayed at many Ibis hotels, and many of the rest of the Accor brand, over the years. Bar none, the Ibis Basel Bahnhof was by far the best. Very close and easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof or 3 minutes by Tram number 2 or two minutes by tram 16 to the...

We were catering an event at St. Jakob Halle and had to chose this B&B hotel as Basel was nearlly fully booked. The hotel it self meets the Ibis standards and the staff is very helpfull - always with a smile and giving the good directions for using the Basel Card on the trams and get where you want to...

We stayed in this hotel because I arrived by train and we were leaving for the airport the next morning and the bus leaves also from the train station so the hotel is quite well located. The hotel is what you can expect from an Ibis, more or less the same everywhere but the receptionists were very friendly, didn't mind...
