That bed was so comfortable! Got off a cruise and was feeling a bit under the weather. Crawled into bed and took a 3 hour nap. Something I never do. The room is very modern and quite efficient. Great location. I give it excellent marks for being clean,comfortable with nice and helpful staff. It is not a luxury hotel but... More

I stayed in the hotel for a third time and I again got confirmed why I prefer staying in another hotel in the neighbourhood ran by competition. At 390 CHF it was rather over-priced, the breakfast was not included in the rate. The room was nice, clean, the bed comfy. However, I have had terrible neighbours for one night who... More

Hotel was modern, clean & functional. During our stay over with dinner on a Saturday & breakfast on Sunday there were very few guests around & little activity. Maybe this was because most of the guests may be on business. Room on 11th. floor was clean & comfortable but the underfloor lighting in the bathroom was weird. Views particularly from... More

If you love to have big windows and a view than there's no better place than the Ramada. The interior is modern and the view from the higher floors amazing. Be aware of the CHF 30 for the parking garage.

Stayed for a long weekend as we wanted to be close to the centre of Basel and booked for B&B. The room was clean and tidy, the food in the restaurant for breakfast was really well presented and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall a really enjoyable stay.

The building is impressive. A tower in the center of the City. Btw, despite I've asked for non smoker room, I had to stay in a smelling smoke room. The hotel rejected to change to me the room. This is not fair in my opinion.
