Steinenschanze Stadthotel, Basel
Everything about this hotel was great for the price. The staff was amazing! Loved the welcome drink and the peaceful garden in the back to enjoy a glass of wine. Location was great but be prepared to climb a lot of stairs to get to the heart of the city. I would definitely stay there again.

Great well located hotel.
This hotel was wonderful. Great staff and service. Well located near old town and train station. Good recommendations on restaurants. Many hotels in Basel don't have A/C but this one did. It could only be set 75 degrees or higher which made the room a little uncomfortable on hot days. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay in a convenient central location
Nice sized room for Europe with a very nice bathroom/shower. Staff were very helpful in helping organize our sightseeing. Hotel is at a bus stop which is one stop from the train station and tram terminal which provide easy convenient access to all the places of interest. Hotel provided a transportation pass which gives free travel on buses, trams and local rail as well as discounted entry to many attractions. Hotel was very quiet and has a great breakfast even if a little pricey. There is a beautiful garden courtyard in the back of the property where we really enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine in the evening with the first one on the house. Hotel has good internet access. You could not do better than to stay at this hotel. We had a wonderful stay here.

Very Good8.0
Good value for a quick visit to Basel.
Very good for a quick business trip to Basel. It is nice. Free welcome drink and decent room that was quiet. The bathroom is small, but that is part of the deal. Strange, but fully functional closet for clothes. Very nice staff. I did not have the breakfast. The location is very central. 15 minutes to train station, 5 minutes to City Center and the Tram Hub. Big underground parking lot (paid) across the street. Good restaurants, cafes and bars all around. Basel is my favorite city in Switzerland. Great mix of tradition and modern culture and style. Two very good museums: Kunstmuseum and Foundation Beyeler, plus many nice smaller museums. Very nice Christmas Market.
