About Us

As one of the oldest grand hotels in Europe and still the only one in the area, the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois fully renovated between 2004 and 2006 remains loyal to the traditions of a grand hotel. The hotel's privileged position in the centre of Basel's beautiful Old Town and on the banks of the Rhine makes every stay an occasion to remember. Each 101 room and suite is individual, furnished with flair and with its own captivating color scheme, select the one which is best suited to your requirements. Either in neo-classic or art-deco style and furnished with antique furniture and works of art. Standard fittings include Bang & Olufsen systems, complimentary Internet access, safe and minibar with free soft drinks and snacks.At Les Trois Rois we accommodate your wishes – and not vice-versa, our restaurants really do spoil you for choice:Stylish as in France in our Cheval Blanc by Peter Knogl, to which Michelin has awarded 3 stars and GaultMillau 19 points with Chef de Cuisine, Peter Knogl who has additionally been rewarded by Gault Millau “Chef of the Year 2011 and 2015”. Passionate as in Piemont, restaurant Chez Donati is the essence of Italian cuisine - yet only a few steps away from Les Trois Rois. Tasty as in our Brasserie Les Trois Rois, the pleasantly relaxed atmosphere together with the traditional French and Swiss brasserie specialties make this restaurant an all-day favorite. On the wine list you will find a rich selection of wines with an impeccable pedigree, in particular the Chateau Cheval Blanc after which the restaurant is named. In summer, enjoy the Rhine terrace.The Les Trois Bar is the perfect meeting place. Time passes in an instant over an exquisite cocktail, a delicious snack or a fragrant cigar from the humidor. The terrace overlooking the River Rhine or the crackling open fire both make a superb setting for an entertaining tête-à-tête. Connoisseurs enjoy our typically English Afternoon Tea.The Salon du Cigare is the perfect place to enjoy your cigar with a beautiful view of the River Rhine.A sophisticated electronic Ipad concept enables guests not only to read the newspaper but also find out in detail about the cigars available in the salon.Each of our beautifully furnished and well-appointed conference rooms is air-conditioned and offers the latest in multimedia technology, generous window frontage allows for large amounts of natural light in.Nestled in the Three Countries Corner of Germany, France and Switzerland, even the beautiful nearby regions can be reached in next to no time: the Black Forest and the French Alsace are all conveniently close by. Only 12 minutes away from Euroairport (BSL) and 1 hour from Zurich International Airport (ZRH).The Old Town of Basel, one of the best maintained and most beautiful old towns of Europe, is much more than a beautiful backdrop. It is the heart of the city, where history can be sensed all around.

Best of the Best

Located at the crossroads of three countries, the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois — “The Three Kings” — lives up to its royal reputation. Since 1681, notables from Napoleon Bonaparte to Theodor Herzl have stayed in its lavish accommodations, which feature the fine brocade and bold hues you’d expect, along with antiques and original artworks. The views over the Rhine and Basel’s Old Town are equally dramatic. Peter Knogl's French haute cuisine enriched with Mediterranean and Asian influences has garnered three Michelin stars for the Cheval Blanc; other dining choices include the French/Swiss Brasserie and Chez Donati for Italian cusine.

Advisor Tip

After you’re settled, ask the concierge about the local tourism office’s interesting, two-hour city walking tour to learn the history of Basel. –Elaine Carey Whispering Pines, North Carolina
