The staff at Wettstein are helpful, friendly and personable. I have stayed many times, and always felt like a valued guest. The hotel is in a good location. In the past the den side of Wettstein has been the lack of food in the evening (making it technically a bed and breakfast). However, that's been rectified with an agreement with... More

Good location, can use the Tram line 2 and other lines and bus 34 which is really handy at the plaza just near the hotel. It is in a quiet area at the weekend and also very quiet on Swiss National Day well other than the fireworks which were amazing! Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Thank you for the...

No compromises...very good size of the room, perfect breakfast, easy garage parking (quite expensive like almost everything in Switzerland), great stuff. Located 5 minutes from the centre. Feel like home concept fulfilled absolutely.

Well appointed hotel in downtown Basel city. Good experienced and caring staff. Due to old time building, rooms are very small. Avoid their rooftop rooms on level 5. Due to roofing, you can't stand straight there. Good breakfast spread and other facilities on premise.

I stayed for a week at this great hotel. The welcome was warm, the staff exceptionally helpful. The look of the place is modern, airy, sophistocated and light, from the white/beige color scheme to the windowed breakfast atrium that looked out on a charming garden, to the pointalist-graphic art that tastefully decorated the main areas and each room. With our... More

Enjoyed 2 nights at this fully renovated hotel. Reception staff couldn't do enough for us, for instance having a drink late at night in the outdoor area complete with snacks. Beautiful garden area to have breakfast or drinks. The only disappointment and I think it was more about translation, was the breakfast. We decided to have the medium breakfast which... More

We booked this hotel online with Hotels.com so that we could travel to the UEFA football final. When we arrived we were told the hotel had been massively overbooked by the Hotels.com computer system. This was an appalling situation - stranded in a city with no rooms available anywhere. I spent ages on the phone to Hotels.com having to endure... More

This hotel is in the middle of a complete renovation but one would not have known. My room was brand new - large and comfortable; lovely bathroom with bath and shower.
