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

Wow - just the location is amazing overlooking the sat moving Rhine where in summer, you can watch the 'drifters' from your balcony. Our room was high up with a small balcony giving a view over the Rhine and Basel. Deluxe everything with an amazing breakfast inclusion downstairs - really a restaurant not your average hotel buffet.

Beautiful location for a step back in history. Opulent, sophisticated and yet very friendly and grounded. Restaurants and bars in the hotel are really excellent and the deck overlooking the river is very special.
