                Good location in the city. It's not too far from the airport either. Rooms were clean and excellent bathrooms with a great shower. Good choice of channels on the TV.

                The lift system is overly complkicated. You have to use a card and are assigned to a lift when on the ground floor. It's all a bit unecessary.

                9.6

                We stayed here in April 2010 and we were very happy with the hotel and it's staff. Our room was excellent with views of the plaza and all the way down ClaraStrasse. We enjoyed it's central location near the German railway, exhibition centre and shops in the old town.

                The location was very good and easy access to the Tattoo.

                The double bed was bit narrow. Breakfast was expensive.

                The sky lounge offers the best views of Basel, and is well worth a visit.

                7.8

                This hotel was close to the centre of Basel, you could walk in 20 mins or take a tram just outside the hotel.

                I was disappointed that the coffee shop in the reception area was never open.

              • Couple
                8.2

                Great location, walking distance from city center. Tram stops in front of hotel and Basel Mobility card (free of charge comes with the hotel room) gives you easy access to the town. Magnificent view from room.

                The Sky Launge requires a facelift, change of interior, change of music sortiment and ambience.

              • Single
                5.8

                Cleanliness of the room, friendly reception staff

                Small rooms. Impersonal hotel. Good for a one-night business stay.

              • Single
                8.2

                Very helpful staff, close to the city centre. Furnishings were very modern.

                Very expensive but then all hotels in Basel are!

                It is a nice and modern hotel, with very confortable rooms.

                The room prices are slightly high.

                The hotel is near to business centers, and reachable by different public transportation. The room is very clean , and good wifi connection coverage. I didn't have time to check diffrent other hotel facilities. I will stay there next time inshalah. The price received from Booked.net is pretty less than other reservation web sites.

                the room is small.

                Next door to Red Bar lounge is convenient - unique for Basel.

                Minimalist taken too far, little signage, confusing lift use has no instructions, reception staff continue talking to you when you are on the phone, mid afternoon cafe in lobby closes and you can not get a drink or food unless you move to L3, Opaque floor in bathroom impractical for a hotel as it looks unclean within moments of use.

                good staff, elevator system, view of the room over Basel

                half the plugs in the room where not working (poor maintenance), Food of choice could only be delivered to the room after 23:00 (had to be hungry for 3h because kitchen would only serve evening menu and not night menu but I wanted to eat something from the night menu), beds not very comfortable, I had Hotel internal car parking reserverd but then had to park outside in a garage and had to pay for it. Not very professional

                I booked a deluxe double room for my family, which was more expensive than a comfort room. the describtion on the Booked.net was spacious. however when we got there, a hotel staff person downgraded the delux double to a comfort room, saying that it was only option that they could put two baby cots. If i were them, i would have upgraded it instead of downgrading it. the staff person was honesy enough to say that it was smaller than comfort but since there was less furniture they could could put two cots. fair enough but i thought i would not use use ramada for my family's stay again.

                Inflexiblity of the staff people was quite amazing. When checking in, I realized that i forgot my ID. Then the person became very unfriendly(she was almost ready to cancel my booking!) My husband who had an ID had to tell her that she could cancel booking under my name and rebook it under his name if that was going to slove the problem. Well at the end somebody else came to the reception and soloved the problem but they really need to learn how to keep composure to their guests.
