Clean, high quality design. Very nice room. Quiet. Food & drinks + service match room quality. No,
Helpful reception, proximity to centre. The room though smallish was very comfortable, and we slept well. Good view of the river. How do you describe something you don't like, without it being a form of complaint ? We found the current roadworks in Solothurn called for some initiative on finding how to arrive. On question (below) about guest reviews, can't remember what they said, but we expected Ramada to be ok. We stayed in Solothurn as being in easy reach of Basel for a one day visit.
It was clean efficient, pleasant staff. Ice was not readily available
I give this hotel a 2 star because of its great location, stunning views, and parking situation. At first sight the hotel is stunning, and parking was always available nearby. But that is as it good as it gets. Our room was small and Still had wet floors in the bathroom from the cleaning service. Also, do yourself a favor and skip breakfast, for 25 Fr you get a limited choice of breads and a boiled egg. On both occassion's we asked for scrambled eggs and after an hour they never came out. I spoke to the front desk and her response was 'sorry, I will let the manager know'. Needless to say they didn't do anything about it on the second day. Furthermore, my friend paid for the hotel suite, and when he asked to get another room due to the Air conditioning being broken. They responded by putting him in a room the size of a closet and simply said 'sorry'. While my other friends suite was unavailable at checkin since they 'overbooked' the hotel. So out of our large group that stayed here, over 80% were dissatisfied
Air conditioning and WiFi worked well. Free parking in front. Great location and pleasant view across the river. Good food. A well designed modern building. Breakfast was expensive.
I have stayed there a number of times. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small-ish but very comfortable and clean Public computer in entrance hall never seems to work.
the well being floor was a great benefit.
very nice SPA
location of hotel was excellent
Clean and quite room, good working wifi, friendly people at the reception and in the restaurant. The breakfast, although of good quality and with an extensive choice, is too expensive : 50 chf (= 36€). I do not think that this price was mentioned somewhere in advance.
Ramada is well located, moderate in price, very clean and comfortable. I recommend it mostly for buusiness people or those who want to visit the town and the local area. The architecture is unique.It is ultra modern among the more traditional type of architecture
Beautiful traditional Swiss hotel, right in the centre of the old town. Well modernised facilities without disturbing the character of the building. Right by the square with markets, fountains and cafes. Clock tower and bells are close and charming, but might disturb some. Food is excellent and the staff were very helpful and charming, spoke very good english and were happy to tolerate our feeble attempts at German. Parking is inconvenient and expensive as cars are not allowed in the old town
Nice atmosphere Standard room is very small
Small hotel, very nice personnel. Restaurant downstairs that offers good food. Nice location in the middle of the old town of Solothurn. The hotel is an old historic building but newly renovated inside. No air conditioning in the room.
Nice restaurant, good continental breakfast, clean room, free wireless internet, friendly staff.
Excellent evening meal, very welcoming and helpful staff.
The character of the building and the town
noise early Saturday morning
Good clean room but small. Very nice staff. Perfect location in town.
Location, restaurant, frendly staff. Noisy street in early morning, very basic breakfast. Parking outside old town, but not so far from hotel.
safety box with as automatic reception for key narrow stairs - not presented elevator
drinks and internet free, excellent location, historic building, nicely renovated, river view lobby doesn't open until 2pm, staff came late but was very apologetic
Nice view, friendly stuff, very good breakfast, free internet access. It could be a bit cheaper
Very interesting, historical building with a modern contemperary interior. Only to cross the bridge on foot to reach the Altstadt. Underground parking at a stone's throw and access to the motorway in 2 minutes. Noise of trains driving by regularly. But in Switzerland trains are never far away...
Location is good. Special ambiance. Drinks/Fruit/Coffee available for guest. There was no staff present. You needed to call a number to get a code to access your room key in a deposit box. This was't a problem, just a bit unusual.
Good room overlooking the Aare. Receptionist helpful and restaurant excellent.Breakfast OK but not a wide choice.
Beautiful location next to the river.
The hotel is very clean and functional. The beds are very comfortable. It is in a quiet area 5-10 minutes work from Solothurn centre. On arrival at the hotel there was nobody at reception and I could not enter the hotel. Luckily my friend who spoke Swiss/German was able to read a sign and make a phone call to punch in a keypad number and retrieve a key ( although it was different to the room I booked). The keys are then extremely difficult to use with the door locks, and many times I gave up and didn't bother to lock the door.Breakfast is very basic by European standards and I have encountered far better on recent travels.
Good hygiene. You can use the washing machine for free, too. Free WIFI. Breakfast acceptable. The women from the staff are supportive, but they often go out to smoke. If your room faces the courtyard (which is more expensive), if your window is open you can easily get the smoke of the people who have to go out to smoke. The windows are very low on the pavement.
Light, bright, comfortable room. Very good breakfasts. Amazing 400 plus tv/radio stations. Very clean. No complaints and even happy with 9 minute walk into town from hotel
Location: 200 metres from Solothurn old town, and 100 from the station shd you come by train. Very quiet and nice street, good parking in the hotel's courtyard, very friendly staff. A Swiss garni as it shd be, in probably the most beautiful and surely the most elegant Swiss town.
Friendly, helpful staff. Free WiFi. Very close to train station. Short walk to old town. Only 4 free parking spaces
Free parking. Nearby the main station.
Excellent location being 2 minutes from the old town and 1 minute from the main train station. Very helpful and friendly staff. DVD player in each room with no charge for DVDs (and you don't see that very often). WIFI access in-room usually plays a significant role in my decision for a hotel for business trips. This time it wasn't necessary but could be a factor in the future.
The staffs are friendly. and helpful The WIFI system is no good. Sometimes the WIFI fail.
Quite hotel. Internet free. Parking place (limited) Nothing
very near to solothurn station, good service, ready to help anytime, fantastic Nothing
We stayed 5 nights in July 2010 during the opera fesitival. We were very pleased and would recommend it highly recognizing the following: The hotel staff spoke good English, was very accomodating and pleasant. The location is excellent w/ just a 3-5 min walk across river to the town center.. The hotel is small and can be likened best to an upscale Bed & Breakfast. They provide a continental breakfast and a limited but small menu that they will prepare anytime during day or evening. They have a small patio in the back where we took most of our meals, a parking area behind the hotel and internet access. If you want value, clean accomodations and a friendly accomodating staff this would be an excellent choice. We encountered no problems during our stay
Clean and renewed hotel. Very easy to find it. The Hotel is really very good hotel but with 3 stars. Arguments: no pay TV, no mini bar, very small restaurant without professional chief cook
Its proximity to the town centre and to the customer I was visiting the next day.
Nice, modern rooms, decent restaurant. During early morning and evening hours there can be noise from small aircraft. I personally don't mind (I enjoy watching the activity) but others might. Not a problem at night, when flying is usually prohibited in Switzerland.
clean room, low cost room was too hot but luckily not too much noise from road and airfield
Modern, clean Hotel
Location and access - Clean - Staff
The staff were very welcoming and helpful
It was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. Very lovely location, the staff very helpful and accommodating very clean, nothing I could change, it was just perfect.
Great location for aviation freaks - unfriendly staff :(
Easy to find and good connection to the motorway. Comfortable and quite rooms, good breakfast and a restaurant in the hotel No airconditioning in the rooms. After 23:00 the reception is not staffed anymore
Excellent welcome from the owner. No
The location was very good, the food and service good.The rooms were clan and comfortable Sleeping was a problem because of the clock striking every 15 minutes. Double glazing would improve sound proofing
Good quality hotel in a central location. Had a bit of difficulty finding the hotel - walked past it twice - before realising what "Hotel de la Tour Rouge" was in German! Very helpful and pleasant staff. Excellent breakfast.
Centrally located in the now pedestrianised old walled city of Solothurn, a great place to stay with plenty of restaurants and shops in easy walking distance.
most amazingly comfortable bed. Nice room. would have liked free wifi and a small fridge in the room.
The service was outstanding.
The ambience, room quality and cleanliness; food
The excellent and helpful staff, location in the old town, the hotel's sidewalk cafe the street noise was a bit much, but then it was a national holiday
Professionalism and friendlyness of the staff. I was leaving at 5 am and they with no prompting from myself offered and prepared a take away morning breakfast meal No bad points
Very friendly and helpful staff. Good central location for visiting Solothurn. Good sized room with period elements
I would not stay at this hotel ever again, nor would i recommend it to any of my business colleagues. I was forced to pay for my room before even checking out, even though they had a copy of my passport and credit card info. The hotel manager called the police and they knocked on my door waking me up at 1am!! they took my passport from me and said i can collect it when i paid my bill the following day, i was made to look like a criminal !!! not a good expirence! totally disgusted with the service i was given, This hotel manager is not fit to run a business. The staff manager is not fit to run a hotel if he cannot trust his guests.
Staff was extremely nice and helpful. We got in the hotel restaurant the best "rösti" potatoes we ever had. I recommend them!
