Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois

One of Europe's oldest city hotels in the cultural capital of Switzerland.

Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois

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.

Hotel 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

Good location to the Old Town. Hotel is old and creaky but rooms are maintained. Breakfast was good. Adequate but not memorable.
