Hotel has an excellent location, at the heart of the city, close to the river. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was sufficient and tasty. Single room was smaller then I expected but was OK for a business trip of two nights.

The Hotel Krafft Basel is located in a beautiful historical neighborhood on the river and the building itself is very "old world classic". The staff is really excellent and exceedingly friendly and helpful. On the downside, I had a room with a single bed and a softish mattress (m

Dear Mishe S Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Tripadvisor. We are very happy to read that you were satisfied with the staff and will keep working hard to maintain the shown level of service. Regretfully, we take note of your remarks concerning our room, as it is a fine line to find the right composition of functionality, design and ambience. However, we take your inputs seriously and are willing to discuss them internally. For your next stay I would recommend our double rooms. In this category, the rooms are between 17 - 26 sqm and are therefore very spacious. Nice to read you had some time to use our tea and water station as well as the ironing station. We hope to welcome you at the KRAFFT Basel again soon and remain with kind regards Michèle Schuler

Very quaint, beautiful style with hardwood floors in the hallways. The dinner was exceptional and the breakfast was just what was needed. Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. My only issue is the amount of smoke that permeates the foyer from the smoking room that is

Dear Relax44382216024 We would like to thank you for having taken the time to evaluate your stay at the KRAFFT Basel. It is a great pleasure to read your comments regarding the dinner as well as our staff. However, we regret that you were not entirely satisfied with your stay. We agree that the wooden floor certainly has its own charm. But for us it also creates a special atmosphere that matches our historic house perfectly. We are also sorry to read you were disturbed by the smell of the cigarrs. It is really important to us that our non-smokers and the cigar-loving guests feel comfortable with us. Please rest assured that we will take up the topic of the smoke internally to find a solution. We would be pleased to welcoming you whenever your travels bring you back to Switzerland! In the meantime we do wish you all the best and remain with best regards from Basel Michèle Schuler Teamleader Réception

Dear emkandis On behalf of the entire hotel team, we want to thank you for sharing your most memorable experiences with us during your recent stay at the hotel KRAFFT. It is always encouraging to hear positive feedback, particularly when it comes from those who matter the most – our guests! We like to see that you enjoyed your time in Basel with all the sights and the service which the hotel provides. I would like to deeply apologize that we did not notice that you had to enter the hotel by yourself with your heavy luggage. Due to the location of the front desk we unfortunately do not have always the main entrance on focus. But do not hesitate to request for assistance, we are always happy to help our guests with their luggage. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back in the near future and in the meantime we wish you a wonderful autumn. Best regards Michèle Schuler Teamleader Réception

I would require a single room and am willing to pay for a room such as #2 reviewer Joel_Tzpl. Thank you kindly for any advice you may be able to provide. {Switzerland is my favorite country in the wo

"There is no A/C in the rooms so the summer will be hot."
"towards the river"
"demand room with view on the river Rhine"
