Stayed here for two nights and found the hotel clean and tidy. Its just outside town off the main drag, about ten minutes walk to town. Ideal if your catching a train as its just over the bridge from the main train station and would only take five minutes to walk. I found the room a little hot as the air conditioning was not great in the room I was staying in but overall I would recommend this hotel. I’m heading back to Basel soon and have already booked in. An additional bonus is your not charged swiss prices as the hotel is reasonably priced.

Room Tip: As the train station is next to the hotel make sure you book a room to the opposite side.

You expect Ibis Hotels to be modern, clearn and with basic amenities. This Ibis is no exception. It is within walking distance from Basel's railroad station. Go out the front entrance and turn left. At the bridge turn left and cross. The hotel is on your left.

If you're looking for a place to sleep and shower while you travel, this is a good choice. It's basic rooms for a decent price in the ever expensive Switzerland. The room is small, but the bathroom is decent and the beds are comfy. The hotel is located two minutes walking from Basel SBB and has two tram lines stopping right outside the door. The friendly staff speaks four languages and all have them clearly marked on their name tags. You can also borrow a Swiss plug adapter at the front desk if you need.

This is a normal Ibis Hotel. A fair value, considering other nearby accomodations. Our room was amazingly quiet even though it was facing the street and the tram came came right by.

It's close to the Bahnhof SBB train station and just steps to tram stop.
Free local public transportaion ticket provided for duration of stay as well as free bus to/from airport. These made getting around the town very nice and worry free, it was nice not getting nickle and dimed to death with puiblic transportation fees.

Staff was very accomodating. We had no problems at all. When we asked the staff for suggestions for eating or how to get somewhere they provided excellent friendly advice.

As another poster stated, breakfast while good, became a bit boring with the same fare every day, we stayed 4 days.

Aside from pillows, which in Ibis fashion are a bit small, evrything was fine, Would stay again-

Room Tip: Just show your reservation to (#50) bus driver, if even required, to get from airport to hotel with...

My wife and I have stayed at many Ibis hotels, and many of the rest of the Accor brand, over the years. Bar none, the Ibis Basel Bahnhof was by far the best. Very close and easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof or 3 minutes by Tram number 2 or two minutes by tram 16 to the station using the provided free pass.

The difference was made by the staff. All staff members were pleasant and quick to help. We needed a European to Swiss power adapter and they provided one. Answered all questions competently and quickly. Greeted with smiles and recognition. Gave help with the wifi, which is free for 24 hours. Plenty of food on the breakfast buffet, good variety particularly in the specials, this week highlighting Graubunden food products.

Room very clean and everything worked. Shower huge, could easily fit 2 people. The flow was not hard but a gentle rain setting, plenty warm. Bed a little hard, but not uncomfortable.

Newly redecorated.

Location great, such easy access to both Klein Basel and Gross Basel by the 2 and 16 trams outside the door. Stop named "IWB" for both.

We had driven past Basel many times but this, our first visit into the town, sold us on Basel and we have reorganized our plans to return next week.

Room Tip: We were given a room on the 5th floor overlooking the station; with the window open (opens all the w...
