Reviewed 5 July 2012

Stayed here a couple of times mostly for single night trips. Main attraction for me was location ( close to the customer I was visiting and also close to German train station). Has all the basics that you need in a hotel and decent breakfast . If you need to iron your clothes be ready for a trip to the ironing room in the basement! ( Can never figure out why European hotels cant just put an iron and ironing board in the room!) . These are two hotels with a common reception ( the other one is Palazzo). If traveling in summer make sure to pick the one with air conditioning!

It's a decent hotel with a good European breakfast buffet. My room was on the 5th floor which is basically the attic because the steep angle of the roofline was reflected in the ceiling, so I had to be a little careful where I walked, but it was an interesting room. Besides the ceiling, another drawback was that the elevator only went to the 4th floor, so I had to carry my bags a flight a stairs. Luckily I travel light because you never know what you might run into. There's a tram stop to the main train station just down the block. This hotel was chosen for me; if I were to return to Basel on my own I would probably look for something a little nicer and more central.

The Wettstein is conveniently located for business trips involving Hoffmann-La Roche and also Messe Basel. It can be easily reached from both Basel train stations and the airport. The rooms are fine, very good bed quality if you like your mattress to be hard. TVs are not the newest models but work. Water is free from the minibar.The breakfast is shared with the adjacent Palazzo hotel is really nice, excellent selection and top service. There's no air conditioning which usually is no problem, but on hot summer days you might want to stay in the Palazzo.

If you are looking for basic, clean hotel at a low price, this is the one for you. It's within walking distance of Hoffman-LaRoche headquarters, and has a couple of decent restaurants nearby. You don't need to bring you own soap, but do bring shampoo, conditioner, etc., because this is a no frills hotel. Also, the gym is terrible. A couple of machines, no free weights, no TV
