Hotel Krafft

Yes, it’s in a prime location – directly on the Rhine River with awesome views. That’s Hotel Krafft, a fixture in Basel since the late nineteenth century. The hotel extends over five floors, with the promenade along the Rhine and the nearby Rheingasse providing a lively backdrop. It’s a place where guests always receive a warm and friendly welcome.

Joy of eating

Less fuss, more authenticity. No distractions. It’s all about what’s on the table. Enjoy it to the fullest.

23.11. - 23.12.

For one month the Rheingassse is transformed into the Advent street. The access to the hotel is therefore difficult. We recommend all our guests arriving by car to park their car directly in the parking garage Räbgass or in the parking garage Claramatte and from there to come to the hotel on foot.


A quiet place to work or hold video conferences – great for boring meetings, too.
