Ramada Plaza Basel Hotel And Conference Center
Travel Blogs from Basel
Basel, Switzerland was chosen as our second stop over Stuttgart, Germany primarily because the train pass was cheaper. However the primary reason for our second stop was a terrific Christmas Market and Basel did not disappoint. We arrived around 1:30 and checked into the Ramada near the very large convention centre. Basel, like many Swiss towns is …
Another travel day. Tonight we sleep in Huningue, France as we wait for our flight back to Lisbon, Portugal before heading home. After an easy and stress-free train trip from Linthal to Basel, Switzerland, we find ourselves in the middle of an industrial village in France along the Rhine River, overlooking Germany. Not much happening here, so at 5:30pm, after a stroll through town, over the Rhine to Germany and back again, we are lounging in the ...
... up and down and singing cheers. Because we weren't familiar with any Freiburg cheers or even knew if they sang cheers, being the obnoxious group we are, we created our own Freiburg chant that we sang increasingly loud throughout the game. Although, the game ended in a tie, I know consider myself an SC Freiburg Faithful fan and will definitely be going back for more..

I am getting ready to leave for my first trip to Berlin and Prague tomorrow!! After stressing about what to pack for this simple 6 day trip, I am hoping by the end of my time here I'll learn to be a more efficient packer.
Here's to getting 2 more stamps on my passport!!
... class, for some reason Isa (my suitemate) and I thought it would be a good idea to make the trip to IKEA with some of the other people in our program. After walking through the rain to the train/bus station and then waiting over 35 minutes for what we later learned was the wrong bus, I knew this wasn't a good decision. We finally arrived to IKEA and tried to speed shop so we could catch the next bus. After checking out and realizing I bought a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Plaza Basel Hotel And Conference Center
As we had never been to Basel before, we booked this hotel based on price and after reading reviews on tripadvisor. We booked a regular room but were given an upgrade on arrival to a lovely suite. Very modern and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms a good size and the underfloor lighting was certainly different. Excellent food in the restaurant and staff who spoke English, French, German.....American! Thoroughly excellent hotel.
We stayed a week at the Ramada Basel with a group of 85 Americans. The hotel was absolutely wonderful - not a complaint from anyone in the group.
Gute Lage, modernes Hotel
Das Hotel liegt gegenüber von der Tramhaltestelle, einfach erreichbar. Das Zimmer hat Schlüsselkarten Zugang in den Aufzügen. Das Zimmer hatte deckenhohe Fenster, einen klasse Blick über Basel.
Das Badezimmer war mit unkonventioneller Beleuchtung ausgestattet, der Boden war beleuchtet. Es gab am Empfang frische Früchte. Das Frühstück war gut aber teuer, man läuft besser die Straße entlang und isst woanders. Alles war eh zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Fantastische Lage, sehr preiswert
Sehr moderne Zimmer, saubere Wäsche, makellos. Klasse Frühstück, gute Auswahl, hilfsbereites Personal. Das Abendessen an der Bar/im Restaurant war preisgünstig und gut zubereitet. Zentral gelegen. Sehr preiswert im Vergleich zu anderen Hotels in der Nähe.
Fantastic location, great value for money
Very modern rooms, clean lines, spotless.
Breakfast great, good selection, helpful staff.
Evening meal in the bar/ restaurant was good value and well cooked.
Great value compared to other hotels very close by.
The hotel is part of Basel convension center where all major exhibitions and confrences held. the tram station is cross the street, where you can reach the city center in tram no.6 after 5 or 6 stops. or you can walk 15 minutes and cross the river to reach the city center with all major shopping brands, cafes and restaurants. the hotel gave us transportation card where we can use the tram during our stay. the hotel is very modern (glass building) and the room wall is completly from glass. the best thing is the bathroom which completly very modern with lighting floor!. It is probably the best hotel in the lovely city of Basel.
Good location, Modern Hotel
Hotel is situated across from Tram station, easily accessable. Room key-card activated the elevators. Room had full floor to ceiling windows, great view of Basel. Bathroom had funky lighting, floor lit up. Fresh fruit was at the front desk. Breakfast was good, but pricey, better off walking down the road to eat. Everything was within walking distance anyway.
Possibly the coolest hotel in the world.
We had a corner room about 5 floors up with epic views over the city.
The windows are floor to ceiling.
The bathroom was lined in green glass, even the floor; that was lit from beneath!! We turned of all the lights except the "floor light", and shared a very romantic bath.
The bar is situated in wing of the hotel that cantilevers over the square below.
The design is very comtempory, which i would expect from the Swiss.
If you are in the design field, you really should check this place out.
Shame we were only there one night.
Very good hotel & location
This is a well run hotel that lives up to the Ramada reputation.
Rooms are very clean and modern with a bathroom you will not want to leave!
You get a free tram card from reception upon arrival but it is a very short walk to the center to see all the tourist attractions.
The rooms have a safe, TV and A/C.
Breakfast was amazing, it has everything, smoke salmon, eggs, sausage, breads, cheese ,fruit, cooked meats and even champagne!!!!!
my advice book now.
This is a safe and well-maintained business hotel with central location in Messeplatz. Rooms are tastefully decorated and have windows from top to floor. There are even lights in bathroom floor, which was an interesting detail. At least from 10th floor rooms the sights over Basel are remarkable. This hotel belongs to the highest residential building in Switzerland and it is a sight in itself. In a clear weather you can see even to France and Germany from the top floors of the hotel. We had a pre-paid deal from Octopustravel, only 77 euros per night per room, which I consider a bargain for a hotel of this quality. Do not forget to ask a free mobility card from reception, although you can easily walk anywhere in the center.
