As other reviewers have commented, the Steinenschanze is a real find, just steps above the historic center of the city. We stayed 2 nights in a large modern room at a reasonable rate that included a delicious breakfast (at other hotels in Switzerland, you can expect to pay an additional $30 or so per person just for that). In the afternoons, complimentary wine and snacks are offered in the bar/restaurant area (or will even be brought to your room free of charge). Amenities include a Nespresso machine in the room, large flat screen TV, and free Wifi. The hotel itself has no parking, but there is a major underground public garage directly across the street with an elevator that exits just in front of the hotel. All of the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and we felt welcome the moment we came in the door.
