Fodor's Review

On the waterfront, Krafft has a can't-get-any-better location that makes it perfect for people-watching. Set in an elegant mansion, it's recent art deco renovation has accentuated the building's open and airy spaces. The wood floors have been restored, and guest rooms are simply furnished with Swiss designer furniture. Rooftop suites offer luxuries like fireplaces or riverside balconies. The traditional dining room and ever-popular waterfront terrace provides spectacular views of the Old Town, while the cozy downstairs Petit Krafft is welcoming on colder days. The Dépendence, across the street, is where you'll find additional rooms and Consum, the hotel's trendy wine and cheese bar.
