The hotel is a short taxi ride away from the airport (around 40 CHF) and you can't miss it! The tall glass building stands out and is set in a great location. When checking in, we were given a room upgrade to the 13 floor by a lovely member of staff. As we are Wyndham members we were given a... More

Friendly helpful staff. Being a Wyndham rewards member got us upgraded to a lovely room with a gorgeous view of the city. There are luggage carts available and staff will help you with your luggage. There is an underground garage (30 euros per day - which we thought was ridiculously high), and you have to walk up the ramp to... More

We stayed here for 3 days, during which we explored the city of Basel via tram, enjoying a fine Christmas Eve dinner at Rubino's Restaurant, shopping at the Market,and just enjoying the sights of the city. The hotel is modern and beautiful, with all amenities…….clean and fresh,with fluffy white duvets and pillows. The staff was friendly and responsive….. Breakfast excellent…….... More

Stayed at the Ramada for three nights as part of a post River Cruise extension in Basel. The room was large with good sized bathroom, shower and floor lighting. The double bed had individual duvets and was extremely comfortable. There are many pillow options including non-allergic foam. There is a safe in the room and individual small fridges. Plenty of...

I stayed here for a 3 day business trip and found it to be very modern, clean and efficient. The staff were friendly and the room had everything I needed. The only slight down side was the breakfast, but otherwise a very good hotel. The room was lovely, bright and clean with an amazing bathroom. Would definitely go back.

While Ramada Plaza is one of the best known, the service is way below par. While the staff try to respond, the hotel's processes are set up poorly - and certainly not rendering a service for the price the hotel asks for. Every time something was needed (room service? Taxi call? Extra stay? Cleaning? Check out?) they failed miserably to... More

I've spent a night here during a trip to Bruxelles. It is an excellent hotel. Quick check in and staff was friendly. The Room, quite impressive, panoramic window, well the whole wall was glass, so that was a very nice touch. Very warm and cozy. Something I haven't seen before, backlit floor in the bathroom, extra points for that. Breakfast... More

After reading the reviews, i had quite low expectations of this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised as nothing what other travelers have complained about, was true in our case. The check-in personnel was very friendly, and when i stated that we would prefer separate beds, we were upgraded with no extra charge into corner rooms which were really nice (as... More

Short tram ride from town center, provided free travel pass for the duration of our stay on arrival. Comfortable rooms for a 3 night stay although not much in the way of hanging space for clothes. Had breakfast one day of stay, good selection although, as mentioned by others, relatively expensive. In contrast to some comments, staff on reception were... More

We were just finishing up a river cruise on the Rhine River. Unfortunately the water levels did not cooperate and we spent the last night here rather than on board the ship. This is a modern European hotel with some nice touches in the room; two duvets on the bed, soft lighting, nice bathroom area with a good shower. However,... More
