Always awesomeness
I really like this place for many reasons. It is close to Roche which is the primary reason, but it is also close to the tram stop at Wettsteinplatz and some good eateries for pizza, also kebabs, beer or wine can be had at the shop on the corner. The access to the old part of the city can be had quite easily nearby or by walking to Claraplatz which is only about ten minute walk. The hotel itself has good food, is immaculately clean, has comfy beds with fresh smelling sheets and the staff are extremely helpful. A special thank you to Nicole, Elena, and Sarah who are always very kind and welcoming. The room has a fridge, the contents of which are free so I enjoy a cold water in the morning and a cold beer in the afternoon. Really couldn't be happier, other than in the summer most of Basel isn't aiir conditioned which means windows open, the road out front can be noisy overnight with the buses running so I would suggest a room on the back of the hotel, a fan was provided to cool things down. There is also a small grocery a minute or so walk which is good to get forgotten supplies. Should I return to Basel I will definitely be staying here again. Thanks Hotel Wettstein for your good service!

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

Very nice hotel in Basel
I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Wettstein. The staff including those at the reception, cafe and housekeeping were all friendly and helpful. The room with stylish decor was very clean and well equipped. We were particularly impressed by the free drinks in the fridge, which would be refilled every single day. Breakfast was nice too. Its location is also terrific. A tram stop is just one minute from the hotel and the city center is basically within 15 minutes walking distance. Everything about this hotel was perfect to me. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who are visiting the lovely city Basel!

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!
