Recent guest reviews

Location was excellent for transportation from the airport and walking to center city.

Our room was small but very efficiently designed. Amenities were fantastic - breakfast, drinks, a beautiful garden, plus a Basel Card for free travel around town.

The staff were wonderful, the food exceptional and our room peaceful and comfortable. Free city transport and a lovely city...what's not to like!

The service was absolutely stellar!! We didn't have an adapter and they loaned us two of them. Super helpful in helping us to the room and explaining everything and offers for any assistance. Rooms are small but quiet and comfortable. Our room was at the back and we could open the window slightly for the cool air and yet didn't have any noise at all. Overall, really good experience!!

Nice compact room but very small. Great shower and comfortable bed

This hotel is so lovely, and such a convenient location. The garden out back is a peaceful breakfast spot, and more splendid in the evening. The staff was quite helpful and attentive.

Dear Ting Thank you very much for taking your time to give the kind review on Stadthotel Steinenschanze. We always communicate the ratings in our team meetings, and our staff is happy to hear your comments. We do try whenever possible to assist guests with any kind of problems, recommendations or special wishes. One of the main reason, why guest book our hotel is the central location. The old town with the tourist attractions, the center with museums and the shopping possibilities are just around the corner. And the free ticket for the public transportation makes is easy to explore the city or get to the offices. It would be a great pleasure for us to welcome you back in Switzerland at Steinenschanze Stadthotel in future.

Dear Claudia Thank you very much for your kind review. We as hotel always use any kind of feedback to improve the quality of our service. We are fully aware, that some of our rooms are smaller than the "standard" in other countries or categories. That is why we match this "disadvantage" with the best service possible and those little things you mentioned (free drinks, free Wireless-LAN Internet, different pillows choice and of course our relaxing garden). We are looking forward to welcome you back at our hotel on your next trip to Basel. Kind regards, Michaela-Maria Nazarek

Dear Karen on Orbitz We thank you for your kind feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel. At the moment our garden is especially appreciated from our guests because it is so quiet and fresh. It is very nice to have a glass of wine there after a long day. A big part of our rooms are already renovated and we have different size of beds as twin or queen size but all are new and we hope, comfortable. For your next booking, don’t hesitate to notice which one you would prefer. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again Best regards Michaela Maria Nazarek - your host
