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...

They were very responsive with regards to booking, flexible, and made my stay enjoyable – thank you! I in particular appreciate the services of Claudiu, working in the lobby coffee bar.

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...

Came for a conference in January - close to airport and very nice staff. When I go to the room noticed the carpet was completely worn out - could not give it 4 stars with that! Also - the thermostat was hard to set, kept on changing to get the right temperature. The elevator was like no other I have...

Stayed here so we could attend the autumn festival which is around 540 years old. Rooms were clean and the staff was great. Breakfast was very good, a buffet that had plenty to get your day started. The hotel was easily to get to from the highway and they had parking. It was an easy location to walk all over...

Comfortable modern rooms - Well laid out. Larger plug adapters may turn off light switch by bed! (buy a "long, thin" adapter rather than a wide one. No mini bar (machines in corridor take swiss francs). BBC 1, BBC2 and news channels. Restaurant adequate. Ground floor bar a bit impersonal. Staff v friendly.

The hotel was clean and in a decent location. Tram right out the door will get you all over Basel. The rooms were large for Europe and he beds comfortable. The breakfast buffet that was included was excellent! Great selection and quality.
