Located at the heart of Basel, the Ramada Plaza is a good hotel with nice rooms. Good restaurants and shopping at a walkable distance and tram station just outside the entrance make for a great location. On a recent stay, I was upgraded to a suite on 13th floor with an excellent view of the city and I was suitably... More

Was staying in couple. Great situation for a conference or a fair for sure as it is situated nex to the centre. Out of the season of events, prices are great, get into the agenda of fairs and rest, multiply the cost by 20 to 30 %. It is also 10 min walk to the city centre or you can... More

I stayed here for five weeks whilst working in Basel. Rooms are modern, small and quite basic. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is good - a short walk into the centre of Basel and there is a tram stop right outside. No windows open in the hotel, which means there is a real lack of fresh air... More

I only stayed here for one night but it will almost certainly be my last night. There is nothing inherently wrong with the hotel but it fails to inspire any emotion at all.

You walk into what you think is a lobby and you're greeted by a cafeteria (most of the time closed and empty). Straight ahead is the reception desk. Not very helpful people here. The restaurant for dinner is surely the emptiest restaurant I've ever seen. Got scared to eat there but I have to admit the breakfast buffet was included... More

Stayed here for one night and found it ok. the service is fantastic, which makes up for the small room and hotel. Location is solid, a block or so away from Swissotel. Def worth checking out though if you're not looking for anything in the heart of the city

Quite simply a very good hotel hotel from a well known brand. Having never stayed in a Ramada before l took the plunge and was not disappointed. Situated in the messeplatz area, there often fairs situated opposite in the square and next to the congress centre (which means they often block book rooms and you can't get a room). The... More
