Our hotel in Basel - it's not far to the train station

In the self-proclaimed bicycle city of Switzerland, many steps have already been taken toward a livable and environmentally conscious urban life. Thus, "public transport" also takes a high priority in Basel. Silent Rhine ferries and streetcars make their rounds, and if you arrive by train, the train station is only about a 12-minute walk from the Stadthotel Steinenschanze. This way you can experience Basel in a particularly relaxed way!

Ideal touchpoint to the trade fair - our hotel in Basel's center

From us, it's a quick trip to the city, to the countryside - or even to your next meeting? The geographical location in the border triangle brings business people together in our beautiful city, who - without having to overcome great distances - like to meet here. Basel is therefore also important as a trade fair location. In close proximity to the Congress Center Basel (opposite on the right bank of the Rhine), our cozy Stadthotel Steinenschanze also offers the perfect location for a successful stay in Basel according to your needs.

    “Fantastic Stay”
    We received the warmest welcome upon entering the property. The staff was extremely kind and accommodating. The room was spacious and we enjoyed the complimentary wine and snacks in the lounge at the evening. The hotel was convenient via bus from airport and very close to the old town area. We only stayed for one night, but would definitely stay there again if we return.

    “Best bargain in Basel”
    My criteria in rating a hotel in order --safe, clean, good location, good service, good value. The Steinenschanze Stadthotel ranks 5 out of 5 in all of those categories. Walk out of the hotel, turn left then right, go to the corner down the stairs and in 5 minutes you are in the center of town. Rooms are spotless and good sized. Lots of English channels on TV. Personnel at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful especially Sven, Elmira and Medina. Breakfast delicious and complimentary happy hour in lounge or garden daily. They even have a library of English novels to borrow as well as free wifi and a computer if you didn't bring your own. It may be 3* but I would give it a 5!

    Beinahe schon Himmel
    Einfach nur schön und gemütlich. Sehr persönlicher, aufmerksamer Service. Nach einem anstrengenden Arbeitstag im Garten des Hotels entspannt bei einem Glas Wein geniessen, das ist schon Erholung. Bei dem kommenden Besuch in Basel werde ich auf alle Fälle wieder in der Steinenschanze mein Zimmer buchen.
