I stayed in this hotel for two nights in January, 2017. The best part is the location of the hotel - a 5-10 min walking distance to the central train station, SBB. There is a bus (No.50) from SBB (which is about 6-10 minutes walking distance from the hotel) to the Airport. If you are traveling light with one or...

The staff at this hotel are probably some of the most friendly and helpful I've ever experienced, from giving travel advice to providing plug adapters, everything was done with a welcome smile and positive attitude. The hotel is very close to the station which is very convenient. We were given free tram passes when we arrived, which made travelling around...

What you would expect from an IBIS - warm welcome and lovely reception staff that would do anything to make you more comfortable. The room was basic with no coffee making facilities however I dont believe any Ibis hotels offer this anymore? Location is perfect if travelling by train. not a lot in the local area, worth walking back to...

Spent a week in Basel at this hotel. It's just a short walk from the Bahnhof or one can just catch the S16 and travel one stop. Check in was easy. They served a very full breakfast buffet and had lunch/dinner options in the bar area, but the menu was limited. The internet WiFi service was very good. A benefit...

Great hotel that is near to train station and that is the reason why I chose it. Room isn't big and good enough for me. Toilet is equipped with basic toiletries like shampoo and stuff. Breakfast is decent but u make sure you have a voucher for it. Would stay again should I am back to Basel

Upon arrival into Basel, locating the hotel was a little challenging, but only due to our lack of direction - the hotel itself is ideally located and actually is quite easy to find. When we checked into the hotel the gentleman who checked us in was very welcoming and informative, gave us free transport for the weekend on all public...

This hotel is conveniently located for train and tram travel. The Basel mobility card (free thru the hotel) was a nice extra. Hotel amenities are few. There is no in room coffee and a cup of coffee at hotel prices is outrageous. Their local beer at the hotel bar is far more reasonable. The in-room shower was spacious, otherwise, the...
