Positives - Rooms are very small but clean. Staff all very friendly and room service food was good. Negatives- wifi in the room was awful and no tea or coffee facilities in the room either so you have to go and buy this. More like a travel lodge or premier inn but with an inflated price. Breakfast was included and... More

I stay here regularly for business. Rooms are always clean and comfortable, breakfast buffet is large with lots of choice and staff have always been very friendly. If you are a member of their loyalty programme you get a welcome gift which is a nice touch. The skybar at the top of the hotel is not to be missed, great... More

Got a free upgrade after a late arrival. The room was small but nice, but the carpetting needed replacement. The hotel is directly next to the Messe, and with Swiss public transport you can get anywhere in the city within minutes, even after midnight. The breakfast buffet was good, with an excellent latte macchiato. If you have vertigo, this might... More

Awesome views from the 30th floor coffee bar and discotheque on the 31st floor. The night concierge always friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts were 1st class with huge varieties, cheeses and breads. Trams stop right in front of the Hotel which is very convenient. About 100 meters all round are little shops where one can get a Cappuccino, cigarettes and other... More

Stayed for 1 night as a business trip. My favorite hotel in Basel, with very nice views from any room. Interesting system to call the elevator. Great breakfast! Pretty convenient tram stops in Messeplatz bring you anywere in Basel.

I spent 2 nights in May and was impressed by the cleanliness not only in the rooms, but in public areas. The location is convenient in downtown and close to tram stop. The food is fabulous. WiFi works perfectly. The only minus is relatively high cost per night.

The hotel is very close to the center of the city (walking distance perhaps 15 minutes); the hotel is very big; the room we had was very clean and the view was nice; there is no free parking (we found it on the street very close to the hotel); there is not breakfast included (they charge about 30 swiss francs...

We had a good welcome, early check in and they gave us a free transport card for the duration of our stay which was nice (many Swiss hotels do that). The hotel is modern and spotlessly clean and the rooms really nice. I took an executive room and was given a corner so I had fabulous floor to ceiling city... More

Professional welcome on check-in. Happy with room. Good facilities. Good breakfast. Trams close by for Bahnhofstrasse and Altstadt. Very enjoyable stay. Good wi-fi and English TV channels available. Sky Room on 30th floor worth a visit.

Whilst the hotel was clean the staff pleasant there were just too many small things which made this 2night stay dissapointing. Having previously stayed at the Stucci and Dorint in Basel, from the outward appearance I expected similar from the Ramada. The issues I found (photos included) were small but numerous: The wardrobe was extremely small barely large enough for... More
