We stayed on the top floor room 420. The hotel has been beutifully renovated but keeping it's historical charm. It has one of the nicest interiors of a hotel I have seen including the rooms. The service was excellent and we had dinner in the Brasserie and were realy impressed with the food and the view. Our room has a... More

Highly recommended -an excellent hotel for guests and family staying in beautiful Basel. Also for week-end breaks! We also enjoy going for afternoon English tea-time on the terrace. From here, Basel can be enjoyed within walking distance.

We stayed 2 nights in this luxury hotel. 650 Euros per night... On the whole, our feeling is this is a bit expensive for what you get in the end. Still, we will always remember this stay, like those in Imperial Hotel New Delhi, Rafles in Singapore, Majestic Hotel in Melaka, etc. The service is excellent, even outstanding. Staff is... More

It is a beautiful, traditional Swiss hotel sitting beside the Rhine river within walking distance of the old town in Basel and fine museums. Luxurious yet comfortable public rooms, bedrooms with heated bathroom towel racks and floors, free well stocked minibars and lovely views over the river. Choose a river view room if you can. Also enjoy the lovely breakfast... More

These are the kinds of hotels that scream stuffy, old-fashioned Switzerland but if you can afford it, why would you want anything else? Beautifully proportioned rooms, a roaring fireplace and leather couches in the bar, leisurely breakfasts, an elegant sitting area, cozy bedrooms and a handy location right in the center of town.I l enjoyed walks into the older parts...

We took a series of rooms from the presidential suite to a more modest double. All immaculate but unstylish. Service impeccable but lacking character. It is what it is it, five star, but with crazy Swiss style.

Les Trois Rois is exactly your idea of excellence in hospitality. Fantastic location in the very center of Basel and overlooking the river Rhin.

Apparently Queen Elizabeth II stayed here...and now, so have I ! No mention of any kings spending the night, but they would not be disappointed. A lovely 'grand dame' of a hotel, but not too big and not too ostentatious...just the right amount of 'swank' mixed with courteous and efficient service. Great views from the lobby lounge and riverside rooms... More

I stayed at the hotel for three nights when in Basel for business. It is an absolutely wonderful property, given its historic style and location. But even more, the staff was attentive and caring, provided perfect service (with attitude or arrogance), and were always warm and welcoming. I am a discriminating consumer and could not find anything to pick at... More
