Krafft Basel, Basel, Switzerland
Amazing staff and perfect location
Everyone who works here was extremely helpful and friendly. Great service from the kitchen to the cleaners to the front desk. The location is beautiful and convenient. The tram stops right by the hotel and the best parts of the city are easily walkable. There is also a station to make hot tea on every floor and teapots you can take to your room. I couldn’t ask for a better experience

Great hotel but lots of outside noise
Great hotel and room, great location and lovely staff but there was too much noise from the street outside my room and also from the room next door. Lovely rooms but they well not sound proof so this was not great for a light sleeper like myself. The hotel were unable to give me another room away from the noise as the hotel was fully booked which was disappointing.
