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!

I got to know many different rooms, small and larger ones, river view and street view and I always felt pampered and treated with... More

Understated luxury, impeccable service and old world charm.... If these walls could talk... Just history of this place alone worth reading about. Buildings in this area date back to 1300s but first mention of this hotel is 1681. It is an institution, not just a hotel. Napoleon, Queen Elisabeth II, The Empress of Japan, Pablo Picasso, Thomas Mann, Prince Rainier... More
