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...

We were catering an event at St. Jakob Halle and had to chose this B&B hotel as Basel was nearlly fully booked. The hotel it self meets the Ibis standards and the staff is very helpfull - always with a smile and giving the good directions for using the Basel Card on the trams and get where you want to...

We stayed in this hotel because I arrived by train and we were leaving for the airport the next morning and the bus leaves also from the train station so the hotel is quite well located. The hotel is what you can expect from an Ibis, more or less the same everywhere but the receptionists were very friendly, didn't mind...

This Ibis is about 5 min walk from main train station and 3 tram stops from market square. The tram stop is directly outside the hotel or it's a 10-15 minute walk. Hotels in Swizterland are generally quite expensive and this is fantastic value for such a central location. Very clean, modern, quiet and excellent front desk staff.

Not too expensive. Great location. Staff are really helpful and the rooms are surprisingly well appointed for an Ibis. Only complaint was that the room was too warm and the airconditioning was fixed on heating, so the only way to address that was to crack the window open a touch. Otherwise, this is the best budget choice for Basel.

The Ibis Hotel offered value for money in an expensive city! The room was basically furnished but very modern and clean. The mattress was a little on the firm side but it was ok for me. The shower was really good and the bathroom was fairly spacious for a budget hotel. We were given travel passes that saved us money...

The hotel is very well located, just a couple of blocks from the SBB train station. Hotel staff was very good and polite, room was clean, but a little small for a couple with an 8 year old child. Internet was very good and a computer available in the lobby. We also got free tram cards to get around the...

I stayed there just 1 night and the location is very convenient . It is a 5 minute walk from the railway station. there is a tram station just in front of the hotel and they offer a free day pass for tram and bus. The hotel is new and modern and everything was clean and in good state. The...
