Do NOT Hesitate to Book Steinenschanze
This hotel is top notch. The best features were the magnificent garden, excellent mattress, pillows, shower, and overall design. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly; especially Eva who made my stay even more pleasant. I would honestly never stay at another hotel in Basel.

Central Basel Hotel
Nice stay for a couple of nights near the centre of Basel. Room was not huge but adequate for a couple for a short stay. Nice touch to be offered a welcome drink on arrival which we took in the attractive garden out the back. Decent selection from breakfast buffet and nice coffee.

Checked in late at night for an early flight out of Basel airport the following morning - this hotel did the required job beautifully, with the airport being just 15 minutes drive away. The security guy who checked us in late at night, could not have been more helpful or attentive to us - Thank you!!! The lady who checked us out the following morning was equally obliging and kind. Room was a good size and had everything that us three adults needed. Would definitely stay here again, especially if using Basel airport.

Ideal location and excellent staff
We spent one night in Basel on route home from a week in the Alps. The hotel was ideally situated on the edge of the old town and was easily accessible by bus from the train station and airport. The staff were exceptional - friendly, knowledgeable and keen to offer assistance in any way they could, including tips on how to make the most of 24 hours in this beautiful city. I would recommend a stay!
