Overall I was very satisfied with my three-night-stay.
I chose this hotel for its competitive price (considering Swiss expensive fares) and convenient location close to Basel central station. Booked my stay on Accor Hotels own website - booking process short and easy, single room at an unbeatable weekend rate of 94CHF/night. The weekday fare was more expensive: 129CHF/night. Breakfast was optional and cost additional 15CHF.
Check-in was quick and I felt welcome - main asset of this hotel is the friendliness of the staff. During my entire stay every staff member was welcoming and helpful, though unobstrusive.
I was given a room on the top floor (5th floor). The room was surprisingly large and even had a balcony. It offered the usual Ibis basic amenities: limited closet with a few coat hangers, small desk with a chair, comfortable bed. The good surprise was definitely the flat screen TV, which I am not used to in Ibis hotels! The room also featured individual air-conditioning.
Bathroom is small but shower and WC were spotlessly clean. On the downside I am missing some paper tissues.
Breakfast buffet is well-presented and tasty. Great choice of breads - otherwise usual offering of cold cuts, cheese (a special mention to the excellent Gruyère!), yoghurts, muesli, cereals. On the downside there were no warm food such as scrambled eggs and no morning newspapers in the breakfast room.
One Internet computer is available in the lobby - unfortunately it is not free of charge and costs a rather hefty 0.10CHF/min.
All in all I can recommend this hotel for its excellent value for money, in particular when considering the Swiss expensive hotel fares.
