Best place to stay in Basel!
Staff was excellent! So customer friendly and helpful! Love that this hotel donates to several charities that help children and women in need of direction. The garden patio was beautiful and peaceful. Easy access to public transportation and they provided a complimentary Basel Card for travel on their buses and trams. Highly recommend this hotel.

Very nice rooms. Minimalist modern. Espresso machine in room. Great service/staff. Short walk to restaurants and bars. Complimentary wine in nice common room. Lots of hooks to hang things. Front desk loaned electric adaptors. Free bus to train station - one stop away.

Try it you will not be dissapointed
It was a great experience!! Reading the reviews I had my fingers crossed because the reviews were so lofty...It matched all of the comments and then some. Staff was excellent-no weakness. Medina was the staff member I came into most contact with and she was AAA. Her positive energy level shone. The breakfast was atypical and excellent. Closeness to the center was a plus. Room was a bit tight but the overall was so good we overlooked that fact. I am in Europe a lot 250 or so trips so far and this hotel was in the top echelon.

Nice and comfortable
Our stay at the Steinenschanze Hotel was wonderful! Guests are treated well and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. My only complaint was that we checked in 20 minutes early and were charged an extra $25.00. We had a large group and ours was the only room ready. We had no idea we were being charged extra until we saw it on the bill after checking out. We have requested a refund, but have had no luck so far.
