For the price - and everything in Switzerland is very expensive - this was a great place to stay. I think we ended up paying somewhere around 150 Swiss Franc and the service was great and the room was very enjoyable. The mentioned bathroom floors are a highlight - if you stay, request an upper floor room facing Basel. A nice view of the river and town. (When there isn't a thick fog over the town.)

Good location, very close to the town centre.

This is a very modern hotel. You must park across the street in a public ramp. A main street car line easily links the hotel location to the old part of town. Our room was not particularly comfortable (among other things the carpet was hard on bare feet) and our TV didn’t work (they couldn’t fix it). It did have the most modern bathroom we have ever seen, but that doesn’t mean it was wonderful either. Breakfast was not included, but a wonderful buffet can be had in the restaurant. We probably wouldn’t stay in this hotel again.

I stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights whilst travelling on business.

Checkin was very quick, had a bit of problem with using the lifts, but I think that was me having a silly moment!

The room was light, spacious, cool and very clean. I loved the bathroom floor - it's glass. Complimentary water was a nice touch too.

I ate breakfast and lunch in the hotel restaurant and all enjoyed all of the food - there is a lot of variety and it all looks very fresh. The service was good, especially when you consider how many people were dining.

We did go to Bar Rouge and enjoyed it, especially the views. For any ladies reading, I suggest that you visit the toilets in the bar as it's an "interesting" experience, I'll leave it for you to find out why, but as you will find out they are a great talking point....

Checkout was also very quick and easy.

Definitely recommend this place for your next business trip to Basel or if you want to explore the city this is an ideal base.

I stayed at the Ramada Plaza in Basel on a business trip, and very pleasant it was too... Efficient check in, upgraged to a larger room, clean, comfortable. If only all business hotels could be like this!

This hotel was in a perfect location. There is a streetcar stop practically at the front door, and since every hotel in Basel gives each guest a Basel Card for the public transportation upon check-in, we were pretty much set to go. The check in was fast and without problems. I took the hotel parking for an extra fee (about 15 Euro), and never saw my car again until it was time to leave. It is basically valet parking in a nearby covered garage, so for all that, it is not too expensive. We had a great room with a nice view over the city. (The hotel is housed on several floors of Basel's tallest building, although not the highest floors.) Breakfast was worth the price. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will stay here again when in Basel.

This is a great hotel for the price. We got a very reasonable weekend rate and had a nice contemporarily furnished room with a fabulous view of the city. As other reviewers have said, each room has one wall that is all window. We were on the 14th floor facing Basel center, and the view was stunning. The room was also confortable and nicely air conditioned. The location is excellent. Right outside of the hotel, we picked up the no. 6 tram into the center of the city, and going the other way the same tram took us out to the great art museum, the Beyeler Foundation. Then, we took the no. 2 tram to the Kunsthaus, which also has a terrific art collection. This hotel was a definite bargain for what we got.
