Intro

Directly on the banks of the Rhine in Klein-Basel (Lesser Basel). Comprehensive room renovations respecting the existing building structures were carried out in 2005, supplemented with Swiss-type furniture. In 2008 the 12 renovated rooms with en-suite bathrooms in the annex, complemented with Vitra furniture, were opened. The Krafft cuisine is based on local and seasonal creations, served either in the restaurant overlooking the Rhine or on the terrace.

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.
