The Steinenschanze is within walking distance of the Oldtown Shops and Marketplace, the Rhine, Munster Cathedral and The Kunsmuseum of Art. Step outside the Basel Train Station and you will catch the 30 bus which will drop you off right in front of the hotel within maybe five minutes. You could even walk it, but there is a highway underpass... More

We had two days to visit and see Basel. This hotel is five minutes walk (including some steep steps!) from the old city. The building is not eye catching from the front view but at back is a pretty little gardenwith tables and seats. Each afternoon and evening there are complimentary wines, coffee tea served in a comfortable lounge area.... More

The Steinenschanze is a lovely hotel near the old part of Basel. As others say, nondescript from the front but the rooms are ample (though small) and well laid out. We arrived close to midnight so took a taxi (less than 5 minutes) from the SSB station. Glad we did as it is tricky to find, especially in the dark.... More

This hotel is a little gem - very comfortable, relaxing and welcoming. We arrived after a longish drive and were invited to have a welcome drink in the garden - a very nice wine in a very nice garden. Breakfast was a very extensive continental buffet, all very tasty.
