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.
Very Modern 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.
The checkin was the most efficient I have ever seen for a large group. They had rooms pre-assigned and keys ready. The buses arrived from Zurich airport before noon - and just about everyone was checked in within 1/2 hour. Even though check in time is normally 3pm, only a few people had to wait for their rooms to be cleaned.
The breakfast buffet was wonderful, including eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, cereal, bread, meat, cheese, juice, etc.
The location is great, with a tram stop right by the hotel that gets you anywhere in Basel in 15 minutes or less. Lots of restaurants and shops close by.
The hotel is very modern and the rooms are especially so. Floor to ceiling windows in every room gave absolutely spectacular views. I loved sleeping with the shades open and the stars clearly visible. The blinds are inside the windows and automatically close when the sun is coming in brightly (though you can manually open them). The bathrooms are very modern with interesting fixtures and a lighted floor. Easy internet access including a pay computer in the lobby.
The staff was always friendly, efficient and helpful - all spoke English to some degree.
No need for a car in Basel, the public transportation system is outstanding.
I would absolutely recommend a stay in this hotel to anyone.
And be sure and try the disco bathrooms out. The disco is on the top floor and the bathrooms also have floor to ceiling windows! Luckily it's high enough up that no one can see details!
Be sure and do a ferry ride while you're in Basel. No motors, the current just carries them across the river along a guide wire.
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.

... Those who recall OHMSS, with George Lazenby as James Bond will recognise the Schiltorn as "Piz Gloria" as this is where the Alpine scenes where filmed. Spectacular! From the village, you have a clear view of the Eiger, the Munch, and the Jungfrau just peeps over them. Fantastic mountain scenery, and we were blessed with a wonderful clear day to enjoy it. The cable car ride down was fun, partly because ...
... were wiped out from the kids waking them up early that day so Frank and I decided to try a Mexican restaurant that they recommended. I have to say the quality was very good. The chips and salsa were sub par (but we all know how picky I am about my chips and salsa). The food was good but bland for Mexican standards, which I imagine is pretty typical round these parts. Oddly it was quite comforting to hear people speaking ...
... goodness. I was in heaven.
We strolled along for awhile then headed back to the house to put the kids to bed. Then the magic happened. Martin made actual Swiss fondue, like the REAL DEAL fondue with Kirsch and cheesy wonderfulness. It was Amazing and the best meal we had the entire trip! The boys went outside for cigars and Cognac and the ladies stayed inside and caught up on each others lives. It was a late night but it was so wonderful to see what the Rupperts had been up ...
We spent New Years with relatives in the black forest and saw some very wintry scenes, day tripped to France for another stunning hillside castle (Haut-Konigsburg with its amazing views over to the Rhine/ Black forest) and cake, ate great french cheese and wine, seeing the worlds largest Cuckoo clock and icy waterfall ...
We decided to make full use of our semester ticket which gives us free transport around the region and thus ended up at Breisach one weekend.
The weather was really gloomy, making the whole trip quite worthless. The view of the rhine river was nothing spectacular.
I guess the only time we'd be back to this place is to take a bus to Colmar.
