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

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.

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.

misleading hotel
they advertise a hotel facing the river and they take you to stay to a building across the road through a very narrow corridor. totally unacceptable.

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.
