I stayed at the Ramada Plaza hotel in September 2016 for a business conference to be hosted at the hotel. I arrived later in the evening to a modern, but average hotel. The hotel occupies several floors of the Messe tower in Basel. I was offered an upgraded room. I'm not exactly sure what constitutes as an upgraded room. When...

The room was great and had views over the city. Loved the blinds and the bathroom - very swish. Very much a business hotel as it was right next to the conference centre. Breakfast was lovely but evenings very flat. The top bar was never open and the bar downstairs in reception had no atmosphere so never ate in the...

Stayed 2 nights with work. Room was good, clean and well kitted out. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great - massive choice and good quality. Bar was ok but expensive. Hotel is v close to the congress centre and a short 15min walk up to the river and then across to the old part of town.

We stayed for business and had our meetings at their conference center too. The rooms are basic and quite small. The food choices are quite good at the restaurant. It is not a cozy hotel but a very business conference hotel so will not recommend if you are a tourist.

Basel is not very rich with really good hotels, but the Ramada Plaza is a positive surprise. Very modern hotel, friendly staff, great rooms. Though I'm only a base level member of Wyndham rewards, we've been upgraded to a large deluxe room on floor 14. The view of the city is spectacular. Highly recommendable.

I spent a couple of nights at the hotel during a recent business trip to Basel. It has everything one can expect from a modern hotel in a European city - it's very comfortable, clean and pleasant. The one thing I'm not 100% certain about is the location - since I didn't get a chance to tour Basel, I can't...

Great hotel everything appears new and well kept as well as nicely decorated! The view of the city from our very large well appointed room, was awesome. Really did not get to enjoy much of the city or the hotel, as missed our connection to Basel, in London, so we got to our room at 11:0pm. One draw back to...

Easy to find in Basel as it is the tall dark glass building beside the event centre. The trams pass directly outside. It is ultra modern. The simple ground floor has a bright open plan tiled reception, bar and foyer. The rooms reflect the minimalist style with a wall doubling as wardrobe and shelves. The brightly lit bathroom floor is...

This Ramada never disappoints. Sparkling clean rooms. Efficient check in. Very helpful and friendly staff. The location is right on the tram line and Ramada supplies a free tram pass making it easy to scoot around Basel. I was able to get a very early checkin after flying in from the States... So helpful.
