Can't fault this hotel. The rooms were ample size, super clean & with free wifi. Breakfast was served overlooking a lovely courtyard & the selection was excellent with facility to make fresh orange juice which went down well with my 8 year old! The location is perfect for exploring Basel on foot or by public transport. Staff were very friendly... More

Was not looking forward to a three star hotel stay. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted and offered a free, ice-cold beer on the house as a welcome gesture. The room reminded me of a very clean student dorm room. While this is not my preferred standard, it was super clean, everything worked well and I had free Wi-Fi as... More

Wonderful location. Main landmarks are just around the corner. Easy to get there from the airport. The bus is free if you have a reservation. Very good breakfast and the after dinner tea, coffee or a glass of wine are a great idea. Clean and cozy room. Friendly and helpful staff. Would stay again.

I stayed here as a solo traveller for 3 nights. First impressions of the hotel are good. The staff were friendly and welcoming. I had a room at the front of the building. It was well decorated and clean. The bathroom was extremely small though and there was not a lot of room to move around. The location of this... More

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
