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... More

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

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
