Stayed at the RAD Blu for business last week. Hotel is nice I guess for Basel standards. However, I'm an US Citizen and I would maybe give this a 2 star rating. For US standards, it's more like a Travel-Inn or Comfort Inn or maybe lower
Again (For US Standards) rooms are tiny. Bathroom was a bit outdated and also extremely small I could touch the glass door to the bathroom while standing in the Shower/Tub.
If you are doing business in downtown Basel (or near Peter Merian offices), I would strongly suggest booking a room at the hotels right across from the Basel SBB Train/Tram station.
Those hotels are the Hilton or the Schweizerhof
The SBB (train/tram station) give you access to all of Basel and usually the hotels give you a free pass for your stay.
The Radission Blu is about 500 meters away from the SBB Train station And. the Radission Blu is downhill from the train statioin. Making it an uphill walk which was quite a bit while carrying luggage
I did discover that there was a Train that stopped right in front of the Hotel that takes you to the train station or all around Basel.
The next time in Basel, I will not be staying at the Radission
