This is a stunning hotel, with a superior breakfast room. However, the downstairs cigar room would be better as a normal bar, without the smoke it would be the best bar in Basel. Now it seemed rather empty all the time. All else is world class.

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
