You could eat off the floors of this hotel. The lobby area is one of the most uninviting hotel lobbies I have ever seen anywhere. It's a 4 storey atrium lit by fluorescent tubes all around, making it uncomfortably white. Definitely not a place to hang out in. The rooms are spacious with bathrooms that have lit floors. The minibar...

Reviewed 9 April 2013

We stayed at the Ramada Plaza Basel for three nights while visiting the city’s museums. The hotel met our needs adequately, if not luxuriously. The building lacks a soul. Located across from the Convention Center, the hotel caters primarily to business people. Therefore, it is not ideal for a romantic get-away. On our arrival, there was a mix-up with our...

Hotel is conveniently located next to the Basel exhibition area and easily accessible by public transport. The employees at the check-in desk were very helpful and efficient and check-in just took a couple of minutes. The rooms are o.k. for a 4 star hotel. Breakfast buffet meets expectations. There is a nice bar at the top of Messeturm, offering a...

Nice hotel, close to public transport. I stayed there during the Badminton Swiss Open. It was good but a bit far from the St. Jackobs (15min by public transport). The only bad thing is the parking. I would advise to not take your own car. Come by train!

The location is very good for business travellers. From the airport you can get the complimentary bus into the town centre and the trams run right past the hotel's front door.
