Short walk to trams connecting you to wherever you need to go. Felt safe during the day and at night, probably best suited for business travelers. Staff friendly and speak good English. Wifi is spotty and drops frequently. Great bar tender in the lobby, but the 80s music paired with life-size video tends to get old quickly. Rooms are comfortable...

This hotel is very well located. Tram stop line 6 and 14 just steps away. Lots OD restaurants. Easy access to Bahnhoff Train Station. We stayed with two adults and two children in a suite. Rooms are spacious, bright and clean. Sofa bed for kids is smaller than a full bed so beware of kids are big. Breakfast buffet is...

For visiting during Baselworld show, this is certainly the best place to stay based on proximity to the venue. Rooms are clean, modern and staff is kind and attentive. Only possible complaint would be the bizarre and restrictive elevators. Again, this is always my first choice in Basel and I feel very fortunate to stay there.

In 2016 the hotel was called Ramada Plaza. At first I was reluctant to book this property, because the Ramada brand has a very low-quality stigmata in the US. This Ramada is located in a prime location. Most rooms overlook Basel. Breakfast is rather good for Switzerland. Early check-in was granted, which I very much appreciate.

I attended as part of a conference. Conference facilities were good although the room was very long and not too intimate. Food from the hotel restaurant was very good and served in ample quantities and the staff were very attentive. The room was moderately sized and comfortable. The only downsize is that it is a little out of the city...

If you're here on business, the hotel is a short walk from Roche and Novartis. It's a business hotel. Other than the fitness room, which is a joke, everything is fine, and bland. (Fitness room consists of a treadmill, elliptical, stair climber, stationary bike, and rowing machine. Treadmill doesn't work). I didn't eat here so no no idea about the...

I've learned my lesson, no more Ramadas. I had a similar poor experience in Berlin: I'm guessing the rooms (at least the singles) were laid out by computer, because no human would have come up with these plans. Maximum use of space, no room for human inhabitants or, dare I say it, a piece of luggage. My room (which I...
