    The hotel is in a great location, the number 30 bus from the Bahnhof stops outside. It was very clean, I really liked the daily free drink to relax in the garden, and the staff were so friendly and v. helpful, really nice room too.

    Second time staying at Steinenschanze, even better than the first. The hotel does social good and it's a fabulous place to stay. It is my new favourite place in Basel when I am there on business! Staff couldn't be nicer, breakfast is good with lots of lovely veggie options. My room this time was on top floor and it was excellent. Just wish I had been able to visit the Christmas markets, otherwise perfect stay!

    Fab hotel with great service and breakfast

    Stayed only one night for business trip. Staff were super welcoming and even loaned me an adapter when my Europe one didn't work (they also have tabletop iPhone charger which is great). Breakfast was really good, fresh salads and a very good savoury tart, not your usual fare it was nice. My room was small but fine for a night, bed a bit too hard and there was some noise outside my room but I will bring earplugs next time!
