“Short stay in Basel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

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 .

Hotel is a 10 min walk from train station and on a tram line. There's a grocery store in the train station. Staff were very friendly. Room was soundproofed and traditional Ibis in style. Hotel is in a quiet business zone, on the other side of the train station from major attractions but Basel is easy to navigate on the tram.

This hotel is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the Airport bus terminal at the main railway station.
It is a fairly average hotel. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the free mobility tickets they provided allowing you to travel on the tram and bus system is excellent.
If anything, the hotel is let down by the rather poor breakfast choice, not the best I have experienced in an Ibis Hotel and considering the price it represents poor value.
Otherwise, no problems and I would stay there again.

The Basel Ibis Bahnhof is 2 minutes from the Basel Railway station (Swiss side). This conveniently located budget hotel is good for travellers who are on a break journey. The location being most convenient for passengers breaking for an outgoing flight or train, and with heavy luggage, and yet in mid of all the action that is Basel - this is your place.

The rooms are tiny, but very clean, most modern and the bathrooms are great. Considering the location from the railway station its a great value for money and saves a lot of time. Catch the bus BVB 50 for the Euro Airport and there will be no tension of reaching late as it takes just 15 ~ 20 minutes max.

The staff at the reception is warm and friendly as you will expect at all the Ibis hotels. There is a bar and restaurant on the ground floor by the reception counter, its a lively place. The walk to the Rhine river is 1.75 kms and the main museum falls on this way. The Basel Zoological Gardens are a few minutes walk and 10 minutes by cab and you are the heart of all the pubs and bars of Basel There is free wifi available.

Excellent budget hotel for transit travellers and travellers taking a short break journey.
Full value for money as its most conveniently located (5 minutes walk time) by the Basel SBB Bahnhof and 15 ~ 20 minutes by bus to the Euro Airport.

Room Tip: For a short break journey any room is excellent. Very conveniently placed rooms facing the road but...

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised to find this hotel on the same street as Basel main station and not much more than 200 yards' distance. Reception was pleasant and speedy. We were given a mobility pass for use on public transport in and around Basel which was such an asset as tram no 16 to the city centre stops right outside the door. The pass is also valid for journeys to the Airport at Mulhouse. Our room was well enough appointed, quite small but comfortable and always clean. The small room was really all we needed for the three nights of our stay. Breakfasts had loads of choice after the Continental style. Loads of fruit and plenty room for late or early breakfast. Self service, using a tray, but tables were kept clean and used dishes taken away regularly Staff very approachable and willing to listen and oblige.
We were very satisfied with our stay. Our room was smallish, although it had a grand, large double bed. But we only paid a very reasonable rate for the accommodation yet received first class service from all the staff. We were given the facility of a safe-box accessed through reception. Highly recommended and would most certainly return to that hotel again when in Basel.
