This hotel is very close to the Basel SBB and has a couple of tram stops just across the road. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast was good too. A lot of cheese, ham, croissants, three-four different kinds of pastries, yoghurt, juices etc.. It is one of the cheapest places to stay in Basel (for the... More

Having stayed in Ibis hotels before we choose this one because of its very convenient location close Basel station and the zoo. The location was indeed very convenient (and the Basel transport system was excellent). The staff were friendly and efficient, the only thing that let the stay down was the bed, it was just too uncomfortable (we were there... More

It is difficult to know what to add to the reviews that have already been posted below. This hotel ticks all the boxes for a good-value hotel in one of the most expensive cities in Europe. The location is superb, with No.2 tram just a couple of minutes from the front of the hotel which takes you into the centre... More

This is not a fancy hotel, but like other Ibis hotels I have stayed in, it is very clean, comfortable, convenient (near the train station) and inexpensive. The breakfast was very good and they supplied a free transportation pass for the day. Several bus and tram lines stop very close to the hotel and they were happy to hold our... More

We stayed here after flying from UK en route for Grindewald. Arrived late at night but no problem finding hotel. Caught No 50 bus from the airport to SBB and then a short walk. Staff very friendly . Room clean and adequate facilities. Breakfast good. We were given a guest card to use local transport free and were able to... More

This hotel was a 2 minute walk from the train station, but we did not hear noise at night. The old town is 5 minutes away by tram which stops on the side of the hotel and runs every 10 or 15 minutes. To get to hotel from SBB walk down PLATFORM 14 from the main station building. This requires... More

I highly recommend Ibis hotels, and Ibis Basel Bahnhof was no exception. The beds are comfortable, the room was clean and the bathroom/shower excellent. Add to that a tasty breakfast and reception staff who speak three languages, and what you get is fantastic value for money. The hotel had underground parking and was only a 5min tram ride from the...
