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...

The Ibis is a clean bright hotel, the majority of the staff very helpful and polite. Breakfast was very good value for money when comparing it to the quality and quantity of food provided in the restaurants we visited. Location is good near railway station and tram stop. Enjoyable stay

Close to the railway station, with friendly, helpful and competent staff. We were given a card for free public transport, including the bus to the airport, which saved us quite a bit. Standard Ibis accommodation, but clean and comfortable. Only slight criticism was that unlike UK Ibis hotels there were no facilities in the room for making tea and coffee.

I stayed here for one night with a friend. I found the service from start to finish very good; the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room itself was nice, clean and comfortable and you also got free wifi which is always a bonus! I would stay here again and would recommend others do.

the hotel is located in a great location, it is within walking distance to the Basel SBB, the rooms are clean but not very spacious but very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going there especially on business

We stayed in several Ibis hotels on this Swiss trip, and were impressed by all of them. The Basel one includes a free ticket for public transport in the city, which was excellent. I think all hotels offer this, as visitors are charged a small city tourist tax. Rooms are small, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds. Staff were pleasant and helpful,... More

The Basel Ibis, lives up very well to its Ibis name - unpretentious, clean, well equipped with all necessities and then top it off with a substantial breakfast. It is 10 minutes walk to Basel SBB which is useful for one who needs to catch the train. The room was quiet, despite the busy Basel SBB nearby. Would recommend it... More
