The corners rooms have the most amazing panoramic views over the whole city of Basel! Get a room as high as you can. The bathroom feels like a floating trans-lucid glass box in a pale green light with mirrors in the most interesting places. You must go for cocktails in the Bar Rouge at the last floors, but try not...

Stayed here a couple of nights for work. The overall service is good, but generally speaking overpriced (breakfast is additional $30) and the location is a bit far from downtown and not ideal, unless you are coming for Baselworld.

Just got back from a 2 night business stay at the Ramada, the hotel was generally ok, but nothing exceptional. The rooms are very modern/trendy, but some of it is unneccesary, like the floor in the bathroom that lights up, cant see the point really, and it highlights every speck of dirt! I do like the idea of laminate floor...

Next to the "Messe Basel", but only a few stops away from the historic centre, and you will get a free ticket for public transports during your stay. Splendid view from the room being so high, although the skyline is an ordinary one and in 2012 there is a new building where the big wheel used to be. Perfect bathroom...
