Perfect location.
Shower Was hard to negotiate, felt insecure stepping into the tub. Tight quarters in bathroom.

Rest and relaxation Krafft Hotel style
We checked in early ( 9am) and within 15 minutes the staff gave us a room. The room was a city view, as requested, and very clean and comfortable. It was Easter Sunday and there were Easter eggs and candies everywhere. Really a nice touch. Complimentary tea and tea pots as well as apples are available in each floor. The room we had, Second floor room 12, was large, and had a futon couch and coffee table. We stayed for 3 days and 2 nights so the large room was very comfortable. Staff made sure we had everything we needed. They gave us a transportation card for the entire stay which we used on all public transportation including a simple connection to the airport.The hotel is on the Rhine riverwalk, so there are many cafes and bars close at hand.

Reasonable option in an excellent location
I was in the "new building" on the fifth floor. The elevator was out of order when I arrived causing me to carry the bags up five flights. There was no air conditioning and it was hot. The room was clean and neat. It was a wonderful location.

Historic hotel with river view
This hotel is wonderful if you stay in my room. I can't speak for the street rooms, but the views of the river from the balcony rooms are amazing. Perfect location too. One problem for our stay is that the rooms are not air conditioned. In Switzerland this normally is not a problem, but we arrived in a heat wave. 95 degrees. It was hot, and we did have a fan, but ouch! Otherwise, the restaurant was fabulous too for dinner and breakfast was included in the price.
