We ended our weeklong bike trip wiith a night in this delightful hotel. Being a group of 8 grownups and 2 toddlers we had lots of special needs and requests and all of these were met by the cheerful and efficient staff.

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. The room was comfortable, well decorated (modernish style) and clean. You... More

It is the small things that matters. The staff is fantastic and makes our stay feel like a family event! Super service minded. Great breakfast service, buffet and the small garden in the back is just great. Highly recommended hotel in the heart if Basel!

Excellent service and many added touches make this hotel a real gem. In the evening we enjoyed complementary beverages and snacks in the garden which is a peaceful oasis. They loaned us an electrical adapter and offered us free bottled water at check out. We were given two transit passes to take the trams for free during our stay. Comfortable... More

Excellent hotel in every way, if you can find it. Exit the train station, cross the street, and take Bus 50 to the hotel. We attempted to walk to it and found it difficult to find on a one way street. Very cool one night visit to Basel.

This would have got 4 stars but for the attentiveness and good customer service of one particular staff member, Annette. It was unseasonably hot in Basel on the nights I stayed.
