Stayed for just one night on Business due to unavailability of other brand hotels. Staff pleasant and efficient. Hotel and room (16) was clean and of adequate size although bathroom a little small (nowhere at all to put toiletries). Bed was OK with the exception of pillows that were awful and room was very warm. Breakfast was standard fare but... More

Pros: great front office staff, clean rooms, convenient location, nice breakfast with the best breads. Cons: wait staff not friendly.Always had to ask for coffee and refills. Big contrast between front desk - nothing was too much trouble compared to the wait staff where we felt that they acted like everything was too much trouble. Still, would stay there again... More

The public transport is fantastic within this city and close to everything that you want to see. The receptionist were very helpful, we decided to include breakfast when we arrived... More

We were in Basel for one night and we needed an easy place to reach from the main station, to go next to St Jakob Halle. The Hotel Wettstein was the perfect pick! It's a real good value for what you get. The rooms are of a perfect size, super clean and very quiet, on the park side. The decoration... More

Good place to stay in the city next to the highway , congress and German railway station. Confortable room and big bath room comodities included... Price expense but in the average for Basel city... Breakfast buffet doesn't include scrambled eggs that has to be paid extra, could be included for the price of the night...

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.

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
