Lovely hotel but the beautiful large pool and health club experiene was spoilt by the local members. Before I'd even closed the door of my locker one was in my face demanding I had a shower....give me chance...horrible angry faces and disapproving looks towards hotel guests! No wonder there were no other hotel guests around. Deal with attitudes like this... More

Had a really good stay here. Highly recommend it. I have used this hotel a lot and it never fails to please. Very central with Trams directly outside. Close to shopping district, bars, clubs, resturants etc... Hotel staff very professional, efficient and friendly.

Yes, the Radisson Blu in Basel, you think there will be art or a good taste in decorating it the modern way, Basel is famous for that. No. What you get is a very cold atmosphere of the sixties and a lot of bad taste. The beds were good, the reception people were friendly but I think it really too... More

Dear theresa r, thank you for taking the time and giving us your feedback on TripAdvisor. Basel is actually a city of art and taste. The roomstyle of the Radisson BLU Hotel Basel was created by a scandinavian designer and for sure you can discuss it. Our indoor pool for example was preserved in 70s status and many guests call...

Thanks to - a large part to - the Radisson Blu Hotel in this wonderful city, we spent an excellent weekend in Basel to see - among other things - the Gerhard Richter exhibit at Fondation Beyeler .

Dear QLB, thank you for your warm and overwhelming feedback on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to hear that you and your daughter enjoyed our staff, the family room, our indoor pool and the free public transportation pass.

I was only in Basel for one night therefore needed somewhere central. This hotel is very easy to find, just opposite the tram stop which is so convenient. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and extremely helpful. We were even given a pass for the transport in Basel which came in handy for sightseeing. The hotel is very... More

This hotel is a very nice change from the Hilton. It's modern, with helpful and friendly staff in a very central location close to a wealth of fine eateries. It also features a bar with outside seating so you can enjoy the hustle and bustle infused with local trolley car. A strong recommend!

Seventies style decor, comfortable king bed and soundproofing! We were upgraded to a business club room which are located on the 5th and 6th floors. Modern, light and tastefully decorated. A nice size. The only thing I did not like was the glass door on the bathroom so one had no privacy!! There is a gym, and massage is offered.... More

Stayed at the RAD Blu for business last week. Hotel is nice I guess for Basel standards. However, I'm an US Citizen and I would maybe give this a 2 star rating. For US standards, it's more like a Travel-Inn or Comfort Inn or maybe lower Again (For US Standards) rooms are tiny. Bathroom was a bit outdated and also... More
