Staff were very friendly & helpful. Fantastic location. Area has great cafés, is very close to the river, and an easy walk to the convention centre. With a tram hub a stones throw away, it is truly a effect place to stay.

Great hotel that deserves a 5 Star rating!!
I had never stayed at the Hotel Wettstein before and booked it for me and my three Canadian friends, starting a bike trip in Basel. We expected a normal, nice hotel, but were blown away by how great this hotel was: friendly and helpful staff, clean, well equipped rooms and fantastic buffet breakfast in a beautiful room adjoined by a wonderful garden. The location, too, is excellent and only a 7 minute tram ride away from the railway station. Everything is in walking distance, including the old parts of Basel. Would be my choice of hotels if again staying in Basel. The price is that of a 3 Star hotel, but everything else is 5 Star quality!

Basel Stay
Weekend stay with mu daughter. We arrived around midday and were allowed to access our room straight away. Room was clean and good size. Reception staff were friendly and helpful with maps and directions for the city. We also received a Basel travel card which entitled us to free tram journeys. We ate breakfast at the Wettstein and it was enjoyable in the winter garden room. Location was great and we felt safe wandering around. Tram stop just outside hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again.

Great hotel for business in Basel

Wonderful hotel
This hotel has the most comfortable, fluffy pillows I've ever slept on. There's no A/C, which is OK as it usually cools down at night, but it was warm in the room during the day with temps reaching up into the mid-80s while we were there. The little garden out back is an oasis. This is close to the tram and they give you a Basel Card that makes all the public transportation free during your stay. Although the Old Town is just a short walk over the bridge, you can get anywhere you need to go on the tram. Excellent location. Overall, a very nice place that I would definitely book again.l

Friendly staff, clean room
There is a lift as advertised, but just in the main building - not the building we were in. As is common in the area there was no air conditioning. The staff was amazing. We were able to check our luggage and tour the town before our evening flight. The breakfast was good. Overall great stay.

Great base to visit museums from.
Great staff at this hotel. I enjoyed the breakfast, and they make a great cappuccino too! Afternoon ice tea is a nice touch after walking around museums all day as well. Our room had a fan available to use, which was great for us as we are used to sleeping with a fan at night. The room is well fitted out and the restroom/ shower was great and very modern. This hotel is close to most of the major museums, with only the Beyeler being a short tram ride away. There is not a restaurant on site, but there are plenty of places to eat within short walking distance, and they all were great.
