« Friendly receptionist »

I was traveling with my family members, the rooms are clean but very small space. Not comfortable in term of the room size. Simple breakfast. Good hospitality and free travel card from the hotel. Worth the price!

« Good location, small but functional room »

The ibis budget hotels are all pretty similar. Two of us stayed in a triple and this allowed for slightly more space. The shower was powerful although leaky. The breakfast was very good. Handy to use the free travel pass. The only ibis budget I've stayed in with air con that is effective and you can control in the room (I've stayed in 5 in Switzerland)

« Great 3 Day Stay »

Hotel was everything you could have asked for. The staff were very attentive and lovely. Breakfast was ok and nothing too amazing but then again it was a budget hotel. The staff were extremley friendly and made the stay even better.

« I have used this hotel a few times. »

Excellent location. Shame that the "continental" breakfast has changed to a more "scrambled egg" type breakfast.. Very helpful staff. The rooms are average with regards to size and moveability otherwise but they are clean.

« Hotel in good position »

The hotel rooms are basic but clean. Did not like the third bed being a bunk. Shower a bit close to bed and leaked on floor outside. Need hooks in cooridor to door to hang items. Good I’m that near trams and short walk to train station. Check in very helpful. Was a match night and vending machines ran out so no drinks available. Don’t get early flight as Taxi very expensive. Did get free travel for a day which was useful.

Dear Robertsfamily10, Thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor. The room setup is standard in all ibis budget hotels, we are sorry but we can not change this. We apologize that the water leaked outside of the shower, please dont hesitate next time to tell the front desk in order to change the room or to find a solution to fix the problem. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our location and the friendliness of our front office staff. Again, I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. I hope you haven't lost the trust you've shown in our organization and you will give us an opportunity to serve you better in the future. Your Ibis Budget Team

« The 3 countries on the Rhein »

It has been an excellent trip to Swiss. The hotel has been booked by accorgroup web-site (we have been using Ibis hotels 2 years). The online check-in possibility (2 days before arrival) and fast check-out are the great idea for saving time and booking guarantee. The hotel is located near the railway station Bahnhof SBB and center of the city. The mobility tickets, provided by hotel, allowed to siteseeng the Basel, which is beautifull at any time. The room has interesting interior, comfortable lighting control, led light system for nigth time and very nice view from the window.

« Budget Hotel »

We were very pleased with hotel in general. Our only complaint was that the beds were extremely hard. We did not sleep well. But staff and facilities was great. Close to tram and really good restaurant in Novotel around corner.

« The best Ibis Budget experience »

I am very glad of the Ibis Budget hotel in Basel. A very cool bonus was a ticket for a public transport for the duration of our stay - that saved money compared to if we would stay in a "cheaper" hotel in Germany or France. Except that, we have got an excellent room and excellent service. I would say, this hotel is the best of all Ibis Budgets where I have ever stayed before.

« easy access »

Although not centrally located, this hotel has easy access to the city center via Tram 11 which picks up three minutes from the front door. And, we received a mobility card from the hotel making our transportation with Basel free! The interior was clean and the layout was what I expect from an ibis Budget. The front desk staff was both nice and efficient. Considering prices in the area, the ibis Budget is a good value and we would return in the future.

« Close to the railwaystation with small issues »

We have spent 2 nights in the hotel. The rooms were affordable and clean with some smaller issues like: room 648 shower door "leaked" water so the floor get wet after 3 person showering. In the 647 the motorized window "darkener" was not working. The toilet does not have a real door but only a plate of wood so the air is common and mixed with the room air at all time! The breakfast was OK (croissant, bread with ham and chees or muesli) though they run out with any vegetable (cucumber we just seen on other people plate). The parking possibility was good but IMHO expensive. Sometimes I woke-up because of the passing trains (the noise were not too high but I need more silence).

« A day in Basel »

An excellent hotel with friendly helpfull staff. Well located near the Basel Central Station (SBB). Public transport to the city centre very close. The buffetbreakfast is very good.. For my next trip to Basel I'll use this hotel again.

« Quite suitable »

Good location and easy to connect via the tram and train network. A basic yet clean and economic business hotel. Was the second time I stayed there. No reward points though. This would make me stay elsewhere. Hotels are cheaper in Germany and France, just over the border.

« Functional and good location »

My room was functional and had everything I needed. All a bit basic but for 1 night it was perfectly adequate. Only issue was with plug sockets. They obviously don't want you to use your conventional 2 pin plug as the sockets are shaped to prevent the plug going in. Presume you have to buy a specific plug.

« Budget and Bus »

Great location, great price, a little gem. Great thing about Ibis brand you always have a comfortable bed at the end of the day, compact room, with Tv. The Hotel gives you a travel pass which is a great saving as 1 journey is 3, 40 euros, and we used the pass to return to the Airport, first bus 4,07 . The hotel is a hop,skip and a jump from the train station a ten minute walk, trams ,trains, and buses very central. A tip try the big department store for a great selection of all types of food tasty and well priced. The breakfast at the hotel is buffet style no hot food served but a great selection of sliced meats, cheeses etc.Staff were helpful and friendly especially in the breakfast section. Big thanks to the Room cleaning team our friend left his phone in the room and returned to find the room clean tidy, and the phone on the pillow, he was well happy.

« Very good value for money »

Clean and practical but if you are looking for character or luxury, is not your hotel. Room has the right size, the bathroom is integrated very cleverly. Very good service, we forgot the charger for our mobile phone and the hotel kindly lend us one. We unexpectedly received a free mobility pass that allowed us to move around Basel for free during our stance. In summary: recommended if you are looking for a good value for money option.

« Very low / no facilities »

The room was too small as there were three beds (though room was called double room). The room was termed as Ventilated, however there was no ventilation as such. We asked for Window to be opened for some breeze, however we were told its not possible due to police restrictions. (this was not the case in Zurich Ibis Budget). Right after we stayed at Ibis Budget Basel for 2 nights, we stayed at Zurich Ibis Budget City West, and that room had one double bed, a window that could be partially opened for ventilation, which was a better off room in all terms.

« One Night Stay »

Retired couple. One night prior to flight back to UK. 20 minutes walk from main station. Tram 5 minutes from hotel to either station or city centre. Pleasant enough for a short stay. Made a mistake with the dates but problem was easily sorted by phoning hotel.

« Nice stay in Basel »

Have been visiting Basel a few times, being in different hotels. ibis Budget Basel city offers friendly prices, combined with a very helpful and friendly staff. Rooms are clean and tidy, no complaints at all. Parking garage is located on site and not even expensive. Access to public transport right across the street or chose a 10 min walk directly to the main station. Depending on your room you might hear the tram, but hey, you are in a city. Breakfast could offer more variation but basic needs are there. Beds are rather hard, have to like them. Conclusion: will be there again for sure, no question.
