The hotel was previously Swissotel. It is quite an average hotel. Rooms are very small and very basic. Food is average. We stayed for 3 days for a business meeting. The location is convenient but will not prefer as a first choice.

This hotel is conviently located within walking distance from our Swiss office. For this reason, it definitely makes up for the hotel's few shortcomings. The A/C in my room didn't work very well. My room faced the East which made for a lot of early morning sunlight. The size of the room was pretty small but that might be typical...

I recently stayed at this hotel. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is very good. Rooms are ok for a four stars hotel and location is good, right next to the Messe. On the down side, the room service menu is very limited and the lifts have a system where you have to enter your floor number from outside...

Short walk to trams connecting you to wherever you need to go. Felt safe during the day and at night, probably best suited for business travelers. Staff friendly and speak good English. Wifi is spotty and drops frequently. Great bar tender in the lobby, but the 80s music paired with life-size video tends to get old quickly. Rooms are comfortable...

This hotel is very well located. Tram stop line 6 and 14 just steps away. Lots OD restaurants. Easy access to Bahnhoff Train Station. We stayed with two adults and two children in a suite. Rooms are spacious, bright and clean. Sofa bed for kids is smaller than a full bed so beware of kids are big. Breakfast buffet is...

For visiting during Baselworld show, this is certainly the best place to stay based on proximity to the venue. Rooms are clean, modern and staff is kind and attentive. Only possible complaint would be the bizarre and restrictive elevators. Again, this is always my first choice in Basel and I feel very fortunate to stay there.

In 2016 the hotel was called Ramada Plaza. At first I was reluctant to book this property, because the Ramada brand has a very low-quality stigmata in the US. This Ramada is located in a prime location. Most rooms overlook Basel. Breakfast is rather good for Switzerland. Early check-in was granted, which I very much appreciate.

I attended as part of a conference. Conference facilities were good although the room was very long and not too intimate.

If you're here on business, the hotel is a short walk from Roche and Novartis. It's a business hotel. Other than the fitness room, which is a joke, everything is fine, and bland.
