“Well exceeds expectations”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

No reason at all to give this hotel less than 5-stars. Excellent location, about five-to-ten minutes' walk from the station, and on several important tram routes (beware some tram and train noise in some rooms). Hotel is welcoming, with excellent knowledgeable staff, and scrupulously clean. Rooms are quite small but adequately equipped. Bar is available 24 hours, and breakfast is an impressive 'all you can eat' buffet from 6am. Price of this hotel is significantly below that of some of the big hotels (e.g. Hilton), but I can't quite work out why I would spend more money on a hotel in Basel. The neighbouring restaurant recommended by the hotel, 20 metres away was honest and convenient; just across the bridge, the Brasserie at the station is a very nice bar to have a drink or to eat.

The Ibis Basel is a relatively new hotel situated about 5 mins walk from the main station. It is typically Ibis in decor although the rooms are bigger than in some locations. My main gripe is that the breakfast lacks hot food.

I have stayed in several hotels in Basel but I keep coming back to the Ibis Basel Bahnhof, in fact over 20 times . In terms of location, value, cleanliness, friendliness and the breakfast I feel you will not get better value. Forget Ibis experiences in France etc, there is a "Swissness" at large in this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet but the top floor rooms feel a little special.

Ibis hotels are well known by providing a " simi- luxury " hotel rooms with a very reasonable prices in everywhere, but in the terms of Switzerland heavy or busy business days the prices gets high a lil so you can put that in concerns!! Still the hotel staff were so helpful & friendly and the location is like almost at the city center! You will definitely enjoy your stay at ibis hotels!!

I have stayed here twice. Both excellent in terms of value for money and service standard.
Friendly and helpful service at the front desk. Rooms are attractive and comfortable. Great location just steps away from the SBB station and airport bus. Price cannot be beaten - since you also receive a two day public transport ticket which is also valid for the airport bus. I find this an incredible bonus point. In this day of overpricing it is refreshing to get such good value for money.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the street side. Although the rooms are well soundproofed it's still no...

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.
