I stayed here in May (2017) I mailed ahead and the staff had ensured that a room was ready for me even thoughI was arriving early. Very welcoming front desk, they provided a bus/tram ticket for the city and also gave me directions to where I needed to go (I was there for work). They also offered a complimentary glass...

The hotel was clean, the price was right, and the location was perfect. Breakfast if you wanted. Glass of wine at night. Very friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again. You were walking distance from Market Square.

I've been staying at the Steinenschanze Hotel for all my stays in Basel since 2011. It's very convenient, clean, centrally located with a very attentive and pleasant staff. For me, a good breakfast is very important, and this hotel provides a very varied selection of food in the morning. In addition, there's a garden behind the hotel which is a...

Can't say enough about this hotel. We got there at 11:30 am expecting not to get checked-in until 3 pm. They checked us in immediately AND offered us an upgraded room because one was available! The staff was always genuinely friendly and helpful. The garden was lovely and the free drink of wine/beer each day was an added bonus. The...

Really nice hotel in the Basel city center. I had a nice stay March this year and was very appreciated with the services, they also prove some free of charge welcome drink and snacks to the guests and very friendly staff at the reception. Defiantly will come back again :)

What a gem! Great location, close to the centre of town, restaurants, shopping, the tourist office and entertainment. From the outside, this lovely hotel is quite unassuming but, once you enter through the doors...that's where ordinary stopped. The staff were welcoming, friendly, helpful and filled with such great suggestions. Breakfast... wow...what a spread of freshly baked goods and made to...

This is a real find in the lovely small city of Basel. Despite its plain facade, it is a real gem. It has a beautiful garden and a lovely breakfast room/ lounge opening on to it. The hotel offers you a free drink ( coffee, tea, alcoholic as you wish) each day or will charge you reasonably for any extras....

We were looking for somewhere to overnight in Basel on our way from Geneva to Bonn and chose this hotel. Great situation five minutes walk from the city centre (and if you're travelling by car a garage a couple of minutes away, 25 francs a night). It's recently renovated in a stylish modern way. The rooms are full of neat...
