Hotel Krafft Basel



The three-star superior boutique city hotel with a restaurant is beautifully located on the small banks of the Rhine and benefits from a unique view of the Rhine and the Old Town facing it. Opened in 1873, the Krafft Basel is a historic building that was awarded the title "Historic Hotel of the Year" in 2017 by Historic Hotels of Europe. The special mix of a tradition building and today's lifestyle gives Krafft Basel a unique character with a lot of charm. The hotel has 60 individually decorated rooms in six categories. In the main building there are 48 hotel rooms and in the Dépendance facing it there are 12 that stylishly combine classic and modern designs. On each floor guests will find a water bar with Basel water, tea, and fresh fruit that they may take as desired. The overlying small library and on-site bicycles are provided freely for all guests. In a spectacular dining restaurant with enjoyable market cuisine, you can dine with a breathtaking view of the Rhine, and in fine weather on the large terrace right on the promenade. The Fumoir with a hearth, the conference room and the Weinar Consum, vis-à-vis the Krafft Basel, are also amongst the services offered. The Krafft Basel has always attracted creative, artistic people. In Room 401 still standing today, the writer Hermann Hesse wrote his novel "Steppenwolf", inspired by the Basel tavern scene. Still today, the hotel is a magnet for those who create and are inspired by art.
