Our Hotel in Basel
Rooms are clean and good size, quiet ones facing the garden. Location is good to walk to the center of town, but very dark and very few people when it gets dark. Also it takes 50 steps to go up from town The rooms are good size, well equipped, good bedding, safety deposit box, personnel were great, breakfast very good and to go back and forth from the airport just 2 buses 30 and 50 The garden very nice and the afternoon coffee, tea, wine, beer very good ( including with the price of the room)

Delightful stay at a boutique hotel
We loved everything about our stay at Steinenschanze Stadthotel. The rooms (indeed 'small and charming') were furnished in a nice modern style, breakfast was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They even lent us waterproof bags for a swim in the Rhine. The location is very convenient, close to the old town and with a public parking garage nearby. We would certainly choose this hotel again for a stay in Basel.

Awesome service, good location. Some on-going renovation, but no noise, so it didn't bother us.

Great place to stay
The location was wonderful-close to old downtown Basel, close to bus, tram and rail transportation. Modern facility with a lovely garden for relaxing in with a complimentary glass of wine every day. Desk staff very helpful,knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely stay there again.
