Recent guest reviews

2 night visit in a very nice, brand new, design room. Modern bathroom. touch light switching, immense room, full glass windows with incorporated electric blinds... impressive ! Friendly staff, upon arrival received a free transportation card for our 3 day stay VERY good beds, highly recommendable, and well connected to the rest of the city, railways and airport. We’ll book here again when in Basel.

Have stayed several times when on business in Basel. Nice, comfortable hotel. Good location, clean and modern rooms. Particularly enjoyed the service from Turan in the nice Executive lounge. Thanks, Turan, for looking after us.

From the moment we arrived in reception we were made to feel we were the most important guests here. My granddaughter was presented with a Christmas bear. Check-in was quick and efficient. Our rooms were clean spacious and the hotel had obviously been recently renovated. The glass floor to ceiling windows gave amazing views over the city. The breakfast in had a wide range of choice and was replenished on a regular basis, there was a wide choice of flavoured and green tea as well as a coffee machine. The hotel is very easy to get to from the airport and included in the price is a mobility ticket for travel around the city. The hotel is obviously aimed at the business market being next to the convention centre, but it also works well as a family hotel.

Very nice hotel located in the heart of Basel. I stayed here for one night and found the room to be very clear, modern, and considerably larger than expected. The staff were friendly and completed check in and checkout very quickly. Definitely a good hotel and reasonably priced for the location.

This use to be Ramada hotel. Check in was quick, polite yet impersonal. My room was a corner room with 2 walls are floor to ceiling glass. Separate toilet room and shower/sink on the other side of the room. Modern clean design. Clearly targeting business traveler (designed for 1 person small closet space, 1 sink, etc) Coffee machine, safe, tea maker, minibar, TV. Price included breakfast, mobility ticket and Wi-fi. Strange textured linens. Breakfast room is large and plenty of choices for different diets. No omelette or fresh eggs being made on the spot and coffee from machine only (that was pretty awful coffee I have to say)

Very modern with large spaces. Our room was on the 11th floor overlooking the spectacular city - with wall-to-wall windows we had panoramic views and lots of light. The bathroom was perfect , large and very clean. The buffet breakast was excellant as well. We'll soon be staying at this hotel again in the near future !!

Great hotel Clean and comfortable. However gym not 24 hours and easily could be. Breakfast was very nice Staff are very friendly and helpful. Lifts can be a little slow in busy period. Overall great hotel and close to public transport.

I stay at the hotel during the Basel fair. There is a five night minimum and very expensive. The hotel is next door to the convention center therefore very convenient. The staff at the front desk is extremely helpful. The restaurant is very nice and they have a delicious breakfast.

I stayed here for three nights as this was the recommended conference hotel. Check in was easy, all the staff were friendly and the hotel was very smart. The public transport was simple and easy to use to get to the hotel from the nearby airport. The view of Basel from the room was great but the hotel, like most things in Switzerland, was very expensive. A 500 ml bottle of coke zero cost £5.00. I was also charged for city tax upon checking out, this was not included in the price of the room like it normally is elsewhere.

A friend and I attended Art Basel and stayed at this hotel. We did not realize that it was steps to the convention center! It worked out well. Their breakfast is great and they are located next door to a bar that sits high above Basel and is great for visiting with friends and seeing the city. The room while compact and expensive due to the show was very comfortable and the bathroom is very "hip". Would stay there again - right next to the tram stop! Oh and a nice short walk to the "German" train station in Basel. We were able to check in early which was nice.
