Explorer1305 Family - 17/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

After a stay at another IBIS in a different city, I had certain expectations for a Swiss IBIS. Better than expected, the hotel was very clean and efficient. I liked the option of donating for an environmental cause instead of asking for the room cleaning. I would definitely recommend it and come again.

Dear Explorer1305, thank you very much for taking the time to rate the ibis Basel Bahnhof and to share your experience with us. We are happy to know that we fulfilled your expectations. We hope to see you back very soon. Best regards, Stephan Köppel General Manager

ALANMaidenhead Solo travel - 23/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Friendly and helpful staff. Large comfortable room with plenty of storage space for my seven day stay. Superb bed. Very good buffet breakfast. I especially liked the choice of bread rolls. I made extensive use of the free local transport which is included in the price. Trams stop outside the hotel. There is a frequent service to the centre of Basel. The rear entrance to the SBB station is a short walk. This was my sixth stay. I am planning to return next year.

Dear ALANmaidenhead, A big thank from all the team for this great rate and nice review ! It is always a pleasure for us to welcome you when you stay in Basel and a great privilege to gain your loyalty ! Warm regards, Stpehan Köppel General Manager

Excellent base for the Railway Station

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

mark_garlick Solo travel - 01/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Excellent base for the railway station. I wish I had spent more time exploring the City of Basel, but I was staying here overnight before catching an early morning train into France and back to England, having been in Central Switzerland for a period.

Dear mark_garlick, Thank you for your great review and the nice words after your stay at the ibis Basel train station. A longer stay is always worthwhile in Basel. With the beautiful old town, the museums and the Rhine you can enjoy the region for several days. We wish you a little more time for your next stay in Basel and would be glad if we could welcome you again. Kind regards, Stephan Köppel General Manager

rugbyjak Friends getaway - 30/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

Staff very helpful. Breakfast very good value with a wide selection. 5 minute walk to the main station and a tram stop outside the hotel. The rooms are a good size with a spacious shower room. Would happily use this hotel again.

We arrived quite late and had an excellent welcome. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and the air conditioning made it a comfortable night. We had a snack in the bar which was was good and our breakfast the following morning was fine . All in all this was a good experience made additionally so by the first rate staff. The hotel is very convenient and well served by public transport which is free to guests. What else can I say - just thank you!

Hotel is conveniently located near to the station and ten minutes walk from the centre. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was spacious, comfortable and quiet even though it was overlooking a busy main road.

Have stayed at this Ibis hotel a few times and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. Room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was good. Had a couple of bar meals whilst staying at the hotel, they have changed the menu slightly which is a shame but was not a big issue. Overall a execellent visit.

Edith L Couples - 18/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

Have stayed at ibis properties before and they are always a good choice. We took the tram from the airport for free, walked to the hotel from the train station and were on our way to discovering Basel. I didn't realize the Switzerland needed a different plug and they loaned me one. Very nice. Highly recomment.

Dear ewlevin, thank you very much for staying with us and for sharing your experiences. It makes us truly happy to read, that you were fully satisfied during your stay in Basel. We are looking forward to see you again in our Hotel. Best wishes, Stephan Köppel, General Manager

I booked this hotel for my wife and work colleague because I am an Accor member. I was disappointed to discover I could not allocate any points or visits to this booked trip. I shall have to reconsider our next visit to Basel. My company are based in Bottmingen so visit quite often.

Good base to explore Basel

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

conguk Couples - 18/02/2018 TripAdvisor review

The Ibis Basel Bahnhof is, as the name suggests, very close to Basel SBB station. It is modern, clean and comfortable. Swiss hotels are noted for their hospitality and this Ibis is no exception, The staff are warm and welcoming and speak very good English. Check-in was easy and the young receptionist was very thorough in explaining the Basel transport pass that we were given. Breakfast was plentiful in spacious surroundings. The new Ibis bed is extremely comfortable and the shower was great. The ibis is well connected with the railway station being so close but there are also a couple of tram stops just across the road meaning that, with the transport pass, no part of Basel and the surrounding area cannot be explored, Great staff, comfortable rooms and good connectivity means the Ibis Basel Bahnhof is a good value for money stay in Basel.

Dear Conguk, Thank you very much for your beautiful review! It is a real pleasure to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us, and also our friendly staff! We are happy to hear that you appreciated our convenient central location. We work harder everyday to make everyone feel home and comfortable. We hope to see you soon again very soon!

Very good place for a short stay downtown Basel. Basic hotel, but very clean room, great beds and general amenities, good breakfast. Quick service at registration and smooth check-out. All you want for a short stay.

Savant S Business - 19/11/2017 TripAdvisor review

I visit Basel very regularly and mostly stay at the IBIS Bahnhof. It's at a great location , off course near the train station but also close to restaurants and bars. It is very well connected with the city with the tram-lines 2 and 16. The hotel and rooms are very well managed and comfortable. The staff is helpful and warm.

Thank you for having taken the time to share your impressions here. It is always a pleasure for us to welcome you and we hope to see you soon in Basel!

Good however road construction outside room all night long

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Ahjell Business - 30/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

For the most part things were finr,however for 3 to 4 nights The road construction outsider was horrible. I spoke to the staff and they said "we don't know how long, we just hear it is happening and news to us." I got no apology no offer of different room and no idea how long my stay would continue. The staff could seem to careless r even post a sign saying we are sorry if you want a new room we will try and move you. Hence, some education In dealing With these types of Issues might ne of value to the hotel. Regards janell meccage

Good morning and thank you for having taken the time to share here your impressions with us. I am glad you took the time to bring this point to my attention and I am taking this point of feedback very seriously. I am taking a good note of your suggestion and I wish to present you my apologies for the inconvenience that you had encountered while staying with us. I can very well imagine how disturbing this must have been. It is unfortunately true that we had been informed that the work will last for a maximum of 4 nights in a time frame of two weeks. We had however no further details about when it would exactly take place. This being said, I am sorry to hear that you had the impression that our team did not care about the discomfort that this might cause you. I will definitely share your impressions with them in order to avoid any future similar situation. I hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you again in the ibis Basel Bahnhof for a complete hassle-free stay!

Good location and convenient

Relax62017 Solo travel - 25/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

Hotel was very close to the train station. The room was very clean and the bed was great. The seven was excellent, they supplied electrical adapters that fit the Swiss outlets, which are a different shape from the rest of Europe, free of charge. Ibis allows for advance electronic check-in which was very convenient.

Thank you very much for having taken the time to comment your stay at the ibis Basel Bahnhof. It has been a great pleasure for us to welcome you here. I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed our online check in facility and that it allowed a swift check in. We hope to see you soon again in Basel!
