we had an upgraded room on the 11th floor, amazing view. The rooms was clean and furnished well, confortable beds. Nice bathroom with a lighted floor. I got a good price on bookings.com while staying in Basel for Art Basel. Overall a good experience I will be happy to repeat!

I have had to stay in the Ramada Basel because it is Arts week and all my usual wateringholes are fully. What a strange experience....I can't put my finger on it but there were so many contrasts. Let me be positive first. The hotel is well placed and the staff are amongst the most charming and friendly that I have...

We stayed here 1 night, booked by our cruise company when the Rhine flooded. The hotel is clean and the foyer is smart but the rooms are small with a window on one wall giving good views over the city from the 7th floor. The windows are double glazed and the room was quiet. The furniture is functional although the...

I normally stay in other hotels but they were booked. This hotel is modern and clean but the rooms are small for the price they are charging. The views from higher rooms are very nice and the Sky lounge is well worth a visit for early evening drinks as the sun sets. I had early dinner there, with food sent...

Modern tower hotel exactly like you'd expect from the big international brands,ie, sleek but without character. Close to the Basel Bad Bf station (need to be careful as there are two main stations in Basel) and a short tram ride into town. Nice but quiet top floor bar. Free wifi. Ridiculously (unless you're on expenses) priced breakfast - typical of...

This is a strange mix of a hotel ....designer chic but space poor . The rooms are fairly small and a little rabbit hutch in feel , despite great views on the higher floors .

The Ramada Plaza was on special offer at Expedia when we needed to find somewhere to stay in Basel for a weekend, so booked it without paying too much attention.
