Pay let's say 100 EUR/night and you get a soap dispenser in the bathroom. For 150 EUR you may expect the full monty: soap, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and all the other amenities that could come in handy. For 200 EUR you get the same but in that deluxe edition that puts a smile on your face and makes you... More

The hotel is new and full of glass walls and windows from bottom to ceiling. Hence no windows can open; very stuffy atmosphere and constant airconditioning. Staff excellent food good enough location good Wifi needs improvement price way to high (185 incl breakfast)

This rather charmless hotel is staffed with very friendly people and well located near the center of the city. The rooms however are small and expensive . The rooms on the lower floors have a poor view and worn out carpet. On the higher levels they are renovated, but still small and too expensive for what they offer. The bathrooms... More

We found this hotel very conveniently placed for what we wanted to do in Basel. Easy check-in and check-out and friendly, helpful staff. We got a free tram ticket, which was really appreciated. We had a spacious room on the 12th floor which was clean and had a nice view. This is definitely a business hotel but good for a... More

This is a business hotel which is clean and functional. I would say it is overpriced for what it offers. The rooms are spacious but the airconditioning is noisy and you cannot open the windows. It is very centrally located.

Vert convenient location just at the congress center with easy access downtown. The rooms are very "Scandinavian" ie very Spartan and functional but comfortable. Beware no fresh air and a relative loud air conditioner. Free wifi but strangely enough empty minibars which can be refurbished at the vending machines in front of the elevators (that is if you are carrying... More

I have just got back from a work conference in Basel Switzerland. We were put up in the Ramada Plaza. Upon arrival we were welcomed by pleasant staff and check in straight away, my room was on the 10th floor. The first impression of the hotel was nice but not perfect but that's okay as it was a business trip.... More

Rooms are on the small side, but comfortable. Exterior wall is all windows (remember to close your curtains when changing at night!) but adequate curtains plus shutters to block out light. Not able to hear any other guests even though I know others are next door which is a big plus for me. Wifi works well, room is clean, breakfast... More
