    So friendly stuff including the cleaning lady. It was just in front of one of the tram station and also very close to the city center. Good amenity choice. I liked entry thing.

    Nothing.

    Superb

    The Wettstein was a very good value in a beautiful city. The room was very small, the hotel has a minimalist vibe. That said, the staff was very helpful during my very brief stay. Breakfast, included, was good and ample. The location just across the river from the city center and close to a bus line was perfect. Plus, they offered a free transit ticket for one day - a very nice perk!

    Very good

    Quiet location easy access to trams for City centre. Bright and clean room. I would have liked a bath and shower unit was very small so not good enough for a big chap like me! Good toiletries and hairdryer. Hotel had parking facilities.

    Shower unit was too small as were bath towels.

    Although they could not find my reservation on the Booked.net system,was allowed to get a room....The breakfast was good, fresh fruit and choice of bread and such, freshly squeezed orange juice,good coffee.Free cookies offered by the receptioniste ,after complaining as a compensation for the poor standard of room,me being not too impressed.The bed was ok,the internet too.The personel excellent.

    The room on the 1st floor was hot, no aircon ;could not open the window for fresh air because it was on a very busy road.When I came in the room have immediately complained and asked for a room on the other side of the hotel ,but since 'late' arrival (could not find my booking) that was impossible.Also could hear people speaking at the reception in the late evening,which woke me up...so when you book this hotel write in the remarks box that you want a quite room on the 'park' side ,Have read there are different sorts of rooms in this hotel, also with aircon ,but for this price ,this particular room was in my opinion not worth the Chf 190 !

    Superb

    Very solid 3 star hotel with very clean rooms, friendly staff, and good breakfast ( fresh fruit, meats, cheeses, cereals, etc.). The location was also very good - the river and main town area was easily accessible by foot and by bus ( for which we were given free passes by the hotel). I asked for an extra bed for my 7 year old daughter (we also have a baby that slept in our bed) and they actually gave us an adjoining room with two extra beds. I would stay here again if we go back to Basel.

    The only concerns I had were:1. the WiFi in room 3 was terrible as much of the time I could not get a signal. 2. In other hotels I stayed at in Switzerland (mostly Best Western) the tea and coffee were free. The Wettstein charges for tea and coffee.

    Fabulous

    Lovely breakfast in the very pleasant garden each day.The Staff were charming and helpful at all times.The location was very close to trams 2 & 15. A fan was provided on request.

    The weather was very hot and there was no air conditioning.

    Breakfast was delicious. very close to city center so conviniet for sight seeing. Small cosy swiss restaurant near by. I'd stay there in my future visits to Basel

    In the morning, rooms looking through the street were very noisy.

    Dont go in the warm weather - no aircon, room was like an oven (no fan provided) and to open the window meant listening to traffic all night

    Superb

    The staff at Wettstein could not have been more helpful, the breakfast was excellent and the rooms were modern, spacious and very clean. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others.

    It would have been nice to have had some air conditioning as the weather was very hot

    Superb

    Excellent quality in every detail, very friendly staff.

    The internet connection is too restricted! Apart of the www and e-mail services, all other ports seem to be blocked. So if you are an IT professional and need to access some servers or databases, the connection won't work.

    Great location. The staff was more than helpful. Breakfast venue and food was fantastic. Room was good. But my pillow wasn't that comfy, otherwise perfect. Definitely would come back
