Stayed here for a couple of nights last December. Its a good location as it is near public transport and has a lot of the best sites of Basel nearby. I enjoyed taking early morning and after-dinner walks around the area before and after my meetings. The rooms are of a comfortable size, clean and modern. Service is also good.

We went to see the annual Fasnacht and the early morning Morgestraich at 4 a.m. on Monday morning. So we needed to overnight in Basel. And Le Plaza fit the bill. It is right on the parade route. A short walk to see the "Cliques" of the Morgestraich. The price on Expedia was very reasonable. It is a bright shiny...

Service and locations are excellent however the hotel needs some cosmetic work and a rethink on the functionality of the rooms. Corridors leading to bedrooms on 3rd floor are poorly maintained (faulty railings, worn out carpets and stains on walls) and in my rooms there were no shelf to put clothes on. It is an expensive 4 star hotel so...
