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.

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...
