Great position near the train station with easy access. The staff were so friendly, informative and efficient. The breakfast was well worth it with a fine range of choices in a very pleasant environment. Clean and cosy accommodation makes this hotel and great place for a short stay in Basel

A typical Ibis - no surprises and very reasonably priced and an excellent location for a train based stopover. Easy walk to the historic centre but also free tram travel for tourists. The staff were very nice and the breakfast quite ok - not exactly the accomodation hightlight of our trip but the right choice for Basel.

Nice and clean, friendly staff. A tram stop just outside, a five minute ride from city centre. A five minute walk fron the Central Railway station and the shuttle to the airport. Not cheap, but then nothing is cheap in Switzerland - this was actually the least expensive decent hotel we could find in Basel!

The hotel is very clean, new and inexpensive. Nothing fancy or first-class, but very good value. Though located centrally in the city of Basel, it is in a neighborhood that doesn't have a lot to see or do in its vicinity but you can hop on the tramway or even walk to the center of town.

The hotel was clean and tidy. It was very central as it was along side the main trtain station and there was a tram service out the front door. There were a few shops around and a few places to eat. Breakfast was plentiful and the beds were good. The bathrooms were excellent. The one thing I would have liked...

This is an excellent hotel. The reception staff were welcoming and helpful, and the room was very modern, comfortable and very well designed. Sound insulation was good so, although we had a room overlooking the main road, the only sound was the distant rumble of trams. The bathroom was large and spotless with a very efficient shower. The breakfast menu...

The hotel is on the corner of a tram stop. We crossed the street and the tram took us to old town Basel. The hotel clerk told us where we could eat local food outdoors in old town for a good price. The breakfast at the hotel seems pricey until you check out other places to eat. The food is...

Within walking distance of the railway station with light luggage and on a tram route into the city. Ideal for a short stay - we attended a family wedding over a weekend. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast.

The Ibis is clean, good value for money and well located for the station, town centre and my office - but you won't care about that! The included travel card is a nice touch which allows free travel on the trams. The breakfast is ok but expensive for what you get. Annoyingly you have to pay for Internet access in...
