We stayed at the Trois Rois for three nights while we attended the Swiss Indoors tennis tournament in Basel. This hotel is such a warm and welcoming place - right from the initial welcome all the way through checkout, we felt well taken care of and positively pampered. We are well used to the service levels of luxury hotels around the world, and have no hesitation in recommending the Trois Rois as one of the best hotels we have stayed in, right up with the Plaza Athenée in Paris.
Our room was the perfect size - ample closet space, a supremely comfortable bed and a lovely view of the Mittere Brücke and the Rhine. The bathroom was huge, to say the least, with his-and-hers sinks, a bathtub and very powerful rain shower. Sheets and bedlinens were, needless to say, of the highest quality. We slept very well - even with the windows open, there was no noise in the room.
We did not eat at the hotel, but snacks, afternoon tea, dessert and post-dinner drinks were all sampled and were of the highest qualtiy - their selection of Armagnac is especially excellent.
The staff is extremely courteous and friendly. Tim at reception checked us in and handled checkout perfectly. We also, in error, left an envelope with a not-insignificant amount of cash on a bedside table. When we returned to the room, it had not been touched. Kudos to the professional and honest housekeeping staff of this hotel.
Basel is a lovely little town, and the Trois Rois is a gem of a hotel. If we were to visit Basel again, we would stay here again without a doubt.
