Great Staff and Good Location
Posted Nov 7, 2016
We stayed at the Steinenschanze twice over a 10 day period and had additional family staying there in a second room for 3 of those days, so there was lots of coming and going. The Front Desk staff could not have been better or nicer. They were great at all times and were especially helpful when we had questions or needed recommendations. The hotel is well located about a 10 minute walk from the Basel SBB train station and a walk up steps from Barfusserplatz, which gave easy access to the main part of the city. The rooms are European size (that is, small), but are well appointed. The breakfast buffet is very good. They also provide wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks in their lounge from 3:00 PM onwards, which was a nice surprise. They also provide tram & bus passes for your stay, which is a real money saver and makes it easy to get around Basel by just hopping on an off trams and busses. We were very pleased with our choice of the Steinenschanze.
