This hotel is the place to stay in Basel. It has a great location on the river and right near old town Basel. The staff is very very accommodating and you can count on the rec's from the concierge. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The hotel boasts a number of dining choices ,including a 2 star michelin restaurant.

I travel to Basel for work approximately 4 times a year and I try to stay at "the three kings" each time I go. The hotel is in a central location, close to the Schifflände tram stop, Markplatz, shopping and restaurants. The rooms that are street side can be very noisy on lower floors and its worth upgrading to a... More

I've been staying at this hotel for 10 years. The location is lovely and the hotel has character and history. But, over the years, the service is clearly deteriorating and the staff are not well trained. Meanwhile, the prices are going up and have reached a level that is not commensurate with what you get. On my recent stay, the... More

Perfect location, fantastic atmosphere, at Le Trois Rois you feel yourself as the fourth king. The standard room is small as for most hotels in Europe. But they added all kinds of modernities to a classic furniture. The friendliness of the staff, from the door to the housekeeping, is fantastic. They memorize your name and room number!

Basel is a small city; the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois is its only luxury hotel. It's true, it has a distinguished history, but the rooms are photographed with lenses that vastly distort and enlarge their sizes. The river view was well, a running river, not much scenery. The buffet breakfast was just all right. The high rates, did not... More

This is a truly magnificent hotel with a great history (Napoleon, Theodor Herzl, Picasso and Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II have numbered amongst its more illustrious guests) which nonetheless manages to be not just immensely elegant, but friendly too. The lounge areas and terrace are popular with locals of every age group for drinks, afternoon teas and simply 'hanging out'.... More

I love the hotel and the bar! However during Basel World the bar is really to full for me, I hear not far from Les Trois Rois there is a new venue called Jay's, this year I may try that one out when it gets too crowded.

This is a unique town hotel where a lot of attention is paid to lovely details, be it the tiles in the bathroom, the furniture, the lamps, the fresh flowers, the lounges etc. Ask for a room with a terrasse overlooking the Rhine and just spend a couple of minutes in the early morning and enjoy the ambiance. Excellent breakfast.... More

I went with My girlfriend for some aperitifs before dinner. The salons are beautiful, the drinks delicious, the service impeccable. Some nice snacks were provided and a proud bartender told us about prizewinning drinks. I would recommend this slow high end pianobar as a great start to an evening!
