Excellant Hotel. Perfect location on the Rhine. Book a Junior Suite facing the Rhine. Hotel is clean and quiet. The service is perfect, and the hotel staff without exception is cheerful and very helpful. Restaurant is wonderful....great food and service. Bill Bath

We stayed here by accident, and could not have been happier. We ended up in the Hermann Hesse room (or so the staff informed us) on the river side. The decor was very pretty throughout the hotel, and we loved the contemporary style of our room. It had a balcony view and the vista at night was spectacular. The food... More

On the Rhine with a balcony room, great service, free bikes and lovely restaurant, a short walk into the old town, lots of character and shopping. A very nice room we thought it was good value for the money.

Just returned from a stay at the Krafft. It's location is great, on the river and just across the river from the historic center. The hotel is in an historic building and has some charm although the furnishings in the rooms have been upgraded to contemporary. The furnishings are simple, beds comfortable and bathrooms small but fine. The breakfast buffet... More

Hotel with lots of character but with all the modern appliances for a demanding clientele .Beautiful restaurant with view of the Rhein which also doubles as breakfast room. We stayed in the top room which was a suite with balcony with view of the city and a Velux window outlooking the Rhein. Soft wooden floors in the bedroom and a... More

Im so glad I stayed here. The service is so helpful and friendly. The location is ideal for visiting this city. My room was so comfortable and well made: I imagine all views from this hotel are going to be charming--street or Rhine. Breakfast was a fresh selection of light fare, but it is the view of the Rhine from... More

My second stay at Hotel Krafft, and again a very positive experience, ticking every box with ease. Location is tops, it cannot be beaten in Basel, right beside the Rhine, next to the Main Bridge. You have tram stops 1 minute walk from the hotel, taking you everywhere you need to go. Reception staff are friendly and professional, and the... More

I was referred to this hotel by a friend who used to live in Basel, and I certainly wasn't let down. We had a junior suite, which was located in the building across the road - a bit strange I thought at first, but it turned out that being in a separate building gave our room a greater sense of...
