“Great location, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Not too expensive. Great location. Staff are really helpful and the rooms are surprisingly well appointed for an Ibis. Only complaint was that the room was too warm and the airconditioning was fixed on heating, so the only way to address that was to crack the window open a touch. Otherwise, this is the best budget choice for Basel.

The Ibis Hotel offered value for money in an expensive city! The room was basically furnished but very modern and clean. The mattress was a little on the firm side but it was ok for me. The shower was really good and the bathroom was fairly spacious for a budget hotel. We were given travel passes that saved us money on using the trams in the city The hotel is very quiet and you can't hear traffic/train noise even though the hotel is situated close to the station and centre of town. We didn't eat breakfast as there is a co-op down the road so we just bought some pastries, juice and fruit from there!

The hotel is very well located, just a couple of blocks from the SBB train station. Hotel staff was very good and polite, room was clean, but a little small for a couple with an 8 year old child. Internet was very good and a computer available in the lobby. We also got free tram cards to get around the town. Overall the cost is very good considering the hotel facilities! Although it was just behind the train tracks, the room was silent during day and night.

I stayed there just 1 night and the location is very convenient . It is a 5 minute walk from the railway station. there is a tram station just in front of the hotel and they offer a free day pass for tram and bus. The hotel is new and modern and everything was clean and in good state. The staff at the front desk was friendly and welcoming. The room was facing the street but still very quiet.

The price is very good for Basel and you have many hotels that are much older and more expensive in Basel. Of course it is not a lovely or romantic hotel, it' an ibis after all but a very good one and a good value/money choice

Nice Hotel. Close to the Swiss Rail/French Rail station. When you leave the station take the exit away from the town centre. Breakfast ok. Room was fine. We like to sleep with the windows open and the station announcements could be heard but this was not a problem as they were stopped for most of the night. With the widows closed the room was very quiet. Probably about 15 minutes walk to the town centre but we never did this as there is a tram stop just outside the hotel, and like other hotels in Basel it provided free transport passes for guests.
