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 friendliness seems genuine, not from the training manual, as experienced at many large chain hotels, this makes a lot of difference.
My single room on this occasion really was a single, with single bed, but absolutely fine for one person. The compact showerroom was fine, with excellent shower. Cleanliness 100%.
One slight criticism was that the curtains were quite thin and did not cut out the light 100%, not a problem for me, but could be for some people. Creaking floorboards outside could also be an issue for some, but again it was not an issue for me.
Another nice touch is the free and unlimted supply of tea and water in the hallways outside the rooms on every floor, very much appreciated in the warm summer months.
As a regular business visitor to Basel, I'm pleased to say that this city is blessed with many fine hotels, who maintain very high standards of customer service, and the Hotel Krafft is absolutely up there with the best of them. Keep up the great work!
