I stayed at this hotel following a recommendation from a colleague and I have been pleasantly surprised. The room is very comfortable and cozy, the breakfast was very good and the check-in check-out process efficient. Very good pizza restaurant right at the corner.

Very Friendly staff, Small rooms, not exceptional but very clean, very close to bus and Tram station, good connectivity with the city. Walkable distance from Rhine River. All in all a decent hotel for a Business visit.

I spent some 6-7 nights at the Wettstein hotel in different periods. The hotel is average (3 stars) so rooms are not exceptional. They are clean, though and personnel is very friendly. The garden side is more peaceful than the street side. As for prices, it is a little expensive (like everything in Switzerland) but in line with market.

This accomodation is near the center of Basel. This hotel is composed by two different parts: my company booked in the Wettstein, the older (and cheeper) one. My room was very small, with a single bed and really "old style". The bathroom was quite small but clean. The breakfast is served in the other part (Palazzo): good quality, not excellent... More

Nice friendly staff. Clean room, basic but with lots of tv channels. Free bottles of mineral water in the fridge. They are offering day travel cards fro public transport. Good breakfast (salmon, cereals, salami, juices etc). They share restaurant with the neighbourg 4 star hotel. Free wifi. I think in the summer they open the terrace for breakfast which would...

This hotel is calling itself a boutique hotel which is pretty much what lots of cheaer hotels are calling themselves these days. Boutique hotels, in my mind though, are very very different to the Wettstein! My definition: small, chic, contemporary, "home-like", high quality furnishings and associated products .like shampoos and shower gels. The Wettstein: small, not at all chic -... More

Stayed here a couple of times mostly for single night trips. Main attraction for me was location ( close to the customer I was visiting and also close to German train station). Has all the basics that you need in a hotel and decent breakfast . If you need to iron your clothes be ready for a trip to the... More

It's a decent hotel with a good European breakfast buffet. My room was on the 5th floor which is basically the attic because the steep angle of the roofline was reflected in the ceiling, so I had to be a little careful where I walked, but it was an interesting room. Besides the ceiling, another drawback was that the elevator... More

The Wettstein is conveniently located for business trips involving Hoffmann-La Roche and also Messe Basel. It can be easily reached from both Basel train stations and the airport. The rooms are fine, very good bed quality if you like your mattress to be hard. TVs are not the newest models but work. Water is free from the minibar.The breakfast is... More

If you are looking for basic, clean hotel at a low price, this is the one for you. It's within walking distance of Hoffman-LaRoche headquarters, and has a couple of decent restaurants nearby. You don't need to bring you own soap, but do bring shampoo, conditioner, etc., because this is a no frills hotel. Also, the gym is terrible. A... More
