Sweeping views over the river, high ceilings, magnificent decor and friendly staff! This really is a grand old hotel - nothing modern or trendy! Afternoon tea Chf 65, Chf 79 with a glass of champagne. Portions are more than generous. Service is attentive and staff are friendly throughout.

Wonderful five star state of the art hotel overlooking the Rhine river. It looks if it were hundreds of years old which it is. Actually it underwent a major year long renovation. The result is fantastic. Theodor Herzl stayed for quite a while in this hotel. The rooms have all amenities one needs and are very stylisch and exclusive. Free... More

If you are too young to know why Swiss hotels were the leading hotels of the world in the 80's, do stay there and you will have a clue as nothing has really changed! And that might be the reason why most of the 5* reviews are written by Swiss nationals. On the other hand, if you like the standards... More

I had the occasion to stay at this very grand hotel due to my husband's stroke. He ended up spending 5 days in the University Hospital in Basel, so I was directed to this hotel due to they had room and it was very close to the hospital. I can't tell you how wonderful the service was. Adrian, was so... More

We chose Trois Rois because we were trying to stay at various hotels along the Rhine, from Basel to Leiden. This is a grand hotel in the old way: full-on service, great breakfast, wonderful lobby bar, posh brasserie for dinner, luxurious room appointments, from linen laundry bag to designer shampoo. Everything is expensive, but one should not count one's penny... More

Context: Afternoon tea during the ART Basel (approx. 5pm). Terrace (half empty, btw.) overlooking the Rhine. Service: - 4 different waiters for a party of two is definitely too much - particularely when they suffer from an obvious lack of memory and communication skill - It took all of them more than 30min to bring two cups of tea (having...

Stayed for 3 nights in June 2014 on business. First surprise was the heat - 35C all three days. Wished I had packed swimming gear as the hotel is right on the banks of the lovely wide river and the locals all cool off by floating down the river and then showering off in the public showers provided on the...

In order to start a Rhine cruise in style, we stayed for one night at the Trois Rois. Although there some glitches (we had to carry our luggage up the stairs and our reservation got lost) it was a great experience. The rooms are very classic with antique furniture and wallpaper, but it really works well due to the age... More

This review is only for the bar, as we were not staying in the hotel. We arrived for a cocktail before heading to Stucki for dinner and I'm so glad we went! What a beautiful, cozy, inviting place. We walked in to a roaring fire with lots of dark wood and rich reds on the furniture; a wonderful atmosphere. The... More
