“Close to Banhof, convenient location, welcoming reception staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

It is located 700 meters from the Banhof, we found our way from the Banhof to the hotel, by asking the tourist information desk and walked around the train station.

Please note that inside the station there is a convenient Migros supermarket, a small cafe and sandwitch facility, without seatings.

The hotel reception girls were very welcoming and provided us all necessary explanations in clear language and were very helpful and polite. The room, bed and shower were very clean and compact. Breakfast was sold separately and provided good espresso and crunchy bread, as well as many other tasty items.
The hotel provides a free mobility card to travel all over the city by public transportation, for the time of the stay (24 hours). Our cost was lowered due to purchasing the stay a month in advance (no cancelation). We liked the hotel.

Room Tip: If your plans and travel date are finite, you may consider ordering the no cancelation reservation f...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Our four nights here were made even better by having the 'mobility pass' which gave us free access on trams and buses. The tram stop was right outside the hotel, but we could also walk quite easily into the centre (15 mins max). The room was very comfortable and had modern decor. Breakfast available at a reasonable price and tasty and a variety of foods. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. The SBB Bahnhof is just around the corner!! A bonus when wheeling heavy luggage. Would highly recommend Ibis Basel Bahnhof.

I'm not a fan of Ibis generally. But the Ibis in Basel was the best Ibis I've stayed in. Swiss standards are very high and so everything is done very well. The most annoying gripe is the ridiculous bars that cover the window automatically and electronically after a certain time of day. The location of this hotel is nothing special. It is not so central, and not in such a nice or sceneric street. The reception were incredibly friendly and helpful

Hotel very easy to get to from the station being only one stop on the tram or 7 minutes walk pulling a suit case ! No need for a taxi ! Staff very friendly and helped by highlighting areas of interest on a city map . Good value there was a free transport pass covering the duration of stay also includes free wifi . Breakfast more than adequate and also good value , recommended .I would say the Hotel had been upgraded as much improved overall standard compared to stay in IBIS in France last month .
