When I checked rates for a recent visit to Basel, the Steinenschanze had among the most reasonable rates while still being near the center of the city. It's a little out of the way if you're not familiar with Basel, but it's actually only a 15-minute walk from the train station and a few minutes from the center of things.... More

It's a good hotel fairly close to the train station. The room is colourful but plain. You get free wine in the restaurant department in the evening. That's a nice gesture but doesn't raise the hotel to a higher grade. I was happy with my stay though.

Great hotel for business, great shape and friendly atmosphere! Great breakfast! But consider high during convention! For location wise is easy to access and restaurant select close by! I love the garden that could enjoy quiet environment before or after work sit in lounge having a drink!😋

Hotel Steinenschanze is located directly in Basel city center. With an public parking garage on the opposite side of the street parking is easy. The very friendly and helpfull staff makes you feel welcome. The room was pretty small according to me. Even smaller was the, recently renovated, bathroom. But everything you need was there so not to complain about.... More

Great location and fantastic hotel. All the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The offer of a welcome drink is brilliant, a very nice welcoming touch. Nice comfy bed. If I was ever back in basel this would be the only place I'd want to stay.

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!
