About
Description
The Steinenschanze Stadthotel has everything you want from a modern and comfortable hotel: Ideally located in the center of Basel, near the old town and near the University of Basel, the museums and the most More important institutions. Very easy access to the convention center and the Messe Basel: 9 minutes by car or 14 minutes by tram. Very good access to Airport Basel: 12 minutes by car or 30 minutes by bus. Contemporary urban design, friendly and bright Gstfreundlicher, likeable service, rich breakfast buffet with lactose and gluten-free, vegan offer. Free Wi-Fi. Not much indicated from the outside out: in this haven of peace and relaxation in the middle of the city. Here in the garden you can have breakfast in warm weather and take your aperitif to be. Or simply cuddle up with a good book on one of the comfortable garden chairs and listen to the whispering leaves. Give yourself a break from everyday life. In Steinenschanze Stadthotel. Less
