“Very basic and cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This hotel is basic. It is just barely above a form in a youth hostel so don't go expecting anything other than a bed, TV and sink in your room. These are perfect for a 1 night stay if you want somewhere cheap and on the motorway. The rooms are secure, but very warm in summer as they have no A/C. There are no bars in these hotels, just vending machines and coffee making facilites at reception. They do have free wifi and although clean and working fine, the toilets and showers were a bit worn in places and some had broken toilet seats at this particular hotel. The beds are fairly comfortable for a night. Book online and get the cheapest rate, although the maximum price is only €41 per room!

Room Tip: Rooms are all the same. Keep the window open and you'll be cooler, but have the noise of the air...

This 2 star hotel is greatly overrated. It's more like 1 star motel. The rooms, toilets and showers are extremelly dirty and service is not good. None English speaking employee, not even in reception.
I was forced to stay there for 5 nights during the BaselWorld 2013 as no other accommodation was available, and this hotel was recommended by a friend as a cheap and okay accommodation. NOT RECOMMENED!!

We stayed one night at the F1 and will not be back. The duvet cover was stained, the toilets and showers were filthy and broken and there were people hanging around in the carpark at all hours. On the plus side it was very cheap - but not worth it given the state of the hotel.

I have to basically echo bene2k1`s remarks about this Hotel. I unfortunatly had to bare 6 nights in this place working in the local area. It is handy for Basel Airport if you are flying but that is it. As at 13/6/12 the vending machines and microwave were not working and had not been for a week. The room was clean and basic but at 34 euros thats what you get in France.Its a 20 min walk to the airport or a two min taxi ride (13 euros)

Just stopping over for a few hours before an early morning flight, we figured it'd be ok to go with budget and it looked clean and reasonable on the website. It was not very clean. It was very cheap....having said that, the whole building smelled of smoke, was generally sketchy, and the bathrooms were like airplane bathrooms in the hallway. Sometimes you can skimp on a cheaper place, in this case, I'd recommend finding a place for a little bit more and being a lot more comfortable even if it's just for a few hours in between arriving and going to the airport to catch a flight the next morning.

The HotelF1 at Bale Aeroport offers you a very basic accomodation, close to the airport.

The rooms are really small and basic but refurbished and clean. There is a small sink in the room, toilets and showers are shared facilities on the corridor. They are very old and shabby. Although they have a self cleaning system they look very dirty.

But if you have to catch an early flight it is a good location just to take a nap.
It is just a two minutes drive away from the airport and offers free parking.

There are no restaurants or anything located nearby. The hotel offers some vending machines and a public microwave to heat your food.

I would not stay here for leisure, but when you just have the need of a place to get some sleep it offers good value for money and it is the closest hotel to the airport.

We wanted to throw up, the basement smells like an old dirty restaurant (people are allowed to smoke). the toilet stink, the carpet in the room is full of stains of vomit.
The hotel is filled with weirdoes from the area, it is extremely unsafe.
It's the most disgusting hotel I have ever seen in my life, I complained to customer service and I hope I will get a refund.
