  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Friendly and helpful staff who speak good English. Though on the other side of the bridge (old town), basically it is within walking distance to all attractions. Breakfast included us one of the pluses. We normally won't pick a 3 star hotel in Europe ( ranked it as 4 star). However, the hotel exceeded our expectations.

    The room was nice and modern but there is no air conditioning so the window had to open and it was really noisy on the front street. Breakfast expensive for what it offered

    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.

    The unique part of this centrally located hotel was it's beautiful garden in the back. It's a hidden oasis from the busy city streets.

    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!

    Loved this place!

    Great choice - super helpful staff. Walked to Old Town, Tinguely Museum, strolled along the Rhine, had two fabulous dinner at Italian places just around the corner. We had planned to stay somewhere else but that didn't work out, and we're so glad it didn't!

    Room was modern and clean, and the hotel was near the river so it was very convenient to squeeze in a morning run!
