Wow! What a hotel! From the street it looks amazing and on walking through the front door it just gets better and better. Overlooking the Rheine the views from the balcony bar are fantastic. I only had a bar snack at the hotel but it was truly breathtaking and I will definitely be back to sample the full menu. I... More

Beautifully located on the river with a lovely terrace overlooking the bridges and river promenade. The hotel has a lovely "old world" charm with superb and attentive staff. Especially the barman Christoph went out of his way to attend to any wishes we had. Another lovely touch is the pianist in the lobby. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly to... More

Les Trois Rois differs dramatically from the understated luxury I usually prefer: A classic Grand Hotel with all the frills one would expect. Carefully renovated and restored some years ago, it takes you back in time while providing today’s comfort. Details like traditional room keys (which could be blocked if lost thanks to a chip inside) you leave at the... More

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

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
