Evaluations of Krafft Basel
This is a real family hotel in the heart of Basel. My room was very small - but the price also, and I know from previous stays that there are beautiful bigger rooms. If you like the charm of smaller hotels this is a place to be
The elevator is very small - ok for a slim person like me, but might be a problem for bigger people
Water Bar on each floor. Very Good. Free WiFi.
Rooms are very noisy. Almost no noise isolation to the other rooms.
Rooms facing the street, subject to noise late at night. Stops by 1 AM
Very central location
No air conditioning, very loud environment
Krafft hotel is a great blend of old world charm with understated mid-century decor and comfort. I have been here 20+ times and continue to be impressed. Make sure to sample breakfast in the stunning dining room overlooking the Rhine.
water heater and tea available historic building, very nicely and directly located at the Rhine and public transport stop in front of the hotel rooms seem to have been completey renewed in 2005, thus, the design of the rooms is modern
no sport facilities
I got a extremly small room. The bathroom was so small that a big guy might not fit into the shower. The room was located to the street side where you here the tram at 5:30 am in morning.
Very friendly staff, quite big room, location near to center. I do like the hotel.
The hotel is located in the noisy at night place (some restaurants and pubs are near by), for me it was not a problem but if you have a light sleep it will be better to ask for the room overlooks Rhine, maybe it helps.
Excellent view over the Rhine river from the riverside rooms. Historical ambiente, carefully maintained and party modernized. Very friendly staff. Nice restaurant.
Single rooms very small and with sparse furnishings, tiny bathroom. Wooden floor makes loud squeeking sound when walking. Noises from neighboring room very noticable. Double rooms better.
Single room is extremely small. Bed was too short and very uncomfortable. You can hear everything from the room next door and the hallway. The bathroom is tiny and the shower so small you can barely turn. The room was not cleaned daily and used glasses not replaced. Currently remodeling is ongoing so elevator is out of order for a long time.
