Hotel of the month

A winter stroll through Basel is a wonderful experience: festively decorated shop windows and facades together with some 100 fir trees adorn the city. Sumptuous Christmas markets enchant the visitors on several town squares. Such fairy-tale sceneries are not the only benefit when staying at the Hotel Krafft at the shore of the Rhine river. Guests are welcomed into a stylish and cordial ambiance where seasonal delicacies from the Krafft kitchen are served alongside a beautiful view of the Rhine. Those who like to keep it simple choose their evening companion from among more than 100 wines at the «Consum» together with tasty salami and cheese specialities.

Certified by ICOMOS

Historic hotel of the year 2007

This distinction honours "the careful use of resources used for the renovation, and the respect for the building structure, the typology and the furnishings worth preserving. It also appreciates the contemporary additions, which integrate some fresh creativity, and above all the enthusiasm of the managers, which marks the life and soul of the historic town hotel". In 1872, Ernst Krafft replaced three medieval worker’s dwellings with a hotel spreading over four floors and seven axes on the shores of the Kleinbasler [Lesser Basel] Rhine River. One of the hotel's famous guests was Hermann Hesse, who wrote the novel “Steppenwolf” while staying here. The hotel was renovated and extended in 1958, and in the year 2002 it was bought by the current tenant, Franz-Xaver Leonhardt. In 2003, the Edith Maryon Foundation stepped in and from 2004 to 2006 all the rooms were renovated and equipped with Swiss "Typenmöbel" furniture from the 1950's.
