“A good quality budget hotel”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is a budget hotel but staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are excellent. The hotel is five minutes from the centre of town and provides free transport tickets for all trams and buses so you return to the airport is also free. The room had a good, hot shower and a large flat screen T.V. It was comfortable, although basic. We would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet.

Hotel is in a excellent location on two tram lines -- and during your stay in the hotel you can ride the public transit system for free. Rooms are compact but adequate. Very good size bathroom - shower only, but large. Only one towel per person though. Price is high but reflects Switzerland's high cost of living; hence is good value. Staff was very helpful and efficient. Note that night lock takes two complete turns to lock.
There is a large supermarket (COOP) a three minute walk from hotel

Room Tip: For a train fan, a room on the 2nd flooror higher provides an excellent view of trains arriving/leav...

Stayed at this hotel for four nights with 3 other couples as part of a Christmas market trip. We arrived by plane at Basel Mulhouse airport and transferred to the front of Basel SBB station by the airport bus no. 50 which is complimentary with a pre booked hotel reservation in Basel. The hotel is less than 5 mins walk from the back entrance to the station and about 10mins from the front. There are a number of shops on the station overbridge.
The room we had on the 1st floor was on the corner with the tram stops no. 16 right outside. Trams run from 5am till late so there is some tram noise.
Staff at reception / at the bar and breakfast were very pleasant and helpful.
The room was typically IBIS small but with large comfortable bed. and a very good shower. Wall mounted hairdryer was provided as well as an LCD TV.
The window was able to be opened.
We used Basel as a base visiting the Mulhouse, Freiburg and Bern Markets as well as the two in Basel. Had a very nice walk along the Rhine on the Sunday in glorious winter sunshine. Definitely recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors may be quieter

Hotel was a great find. Very clean and central located. A short walk from the main train station and the tram stopped right outside the hotel. Breakfast was included and was very nice. Rooms were average size and very clean. This hotel met all expectations for our stay in Basel. Nice staff that recommended restaurants and was helpful with getting around the city.

Hotel's just behind the train station but yet a quiet enough location. There's a tram stop outside & shops/restaurants across the road plus the airport bus stop is closeby. There's a small bar and the staff were friendly & helpful. The room was clean but basic and a little overpriced but that's Switzerland. It's ideal for a short stay but I wouldn't recommend it for a long stay & there's no tea making facilities. We only stayed one night.
