Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois

As one of the oldest grand hotels in Europe and still the only one in the area, the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois remains loyal to the traditions of a grand hotel. The first official record of the "Three Kings" as a guest house dates back to 1681; in 1844, it was completely rebuilt as a grand hotel. The hotel has a wealth of history. On the list of famous personalities who have lodged at the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois you will find names such as Emperor Joseph II., Napoleon Bonaparte, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Hans Christian Andersen, Theodor Herzl und many other famous personalities. Experience the elegance and charm of a historic Grand Hotel. Fully renovated between 2004 and 2006, Les Trois Rois offers all the fine facilities expected by today's discerning guest. 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.

Les Trois Rois turns the “Tales from 101 Nights” into reality. We have 101 rooms and suites for you – select the one which is best suited to your requirements. Each room and each suite is individual, furnished with flair and with its own captivating colour scheme. All rooms and suites are designed in neo-classic or art-deco style and furnished with antique furniture and works of art. Standard fittings include a Bang & Olufsen flat screen television with satellite TV, Bang & Olufsen DVD/CD player, complimentary Internet access (LAN or WLAN), direct-dial telephone, fax connection, safe and minibar with free soft drinks and snacks.

Dine in classic style and let us tempt you with creations in the tradition of Mediterranean haute cuisine to which Michelin has awarded 2 stars and Gault Millau 18 points. Head Cheaf Peter Knogl has been rewarded by Gault Millau "Chef of the Year 2011". 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.

Chez Donati is a piece of Italy - yet only a few steps away from Les Trois Rois. For fifty years, the restaurant has been Basel's embodiment of Piedmont culinary culture, a popular artists' rendezvous and famous far and wide for its fine fare, Murano chandeliers and contemporary art. As well as classic fare on main menu card, we also serve regularly changing seasonal dishes.

Spice up everyday life with a dash of savoir vivre at the "Brasserie". The pleasantly relaxed atmosphere together with the traditional French and Swiss brasserie specialties make this restaurant an all-day favorite. The menu is varied and offers something for every palate. Those in the know enjoy the generous breakfast buffet from 6am and the splendid view of the Rhine. Every Sunday lunchtime, why not treat yourself to the legendary Sunday buffet brunch.

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 tete-a-tete. Connoisseurs enjoy typically English Afternoon Tea.

The Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois pursues its tradition of great hospitality with a new lounge of exception. The new Salon du Cigare is the perfect place to enjoy your cigar with a beautiful view of the River Rhine. 

Hotel offers a wide choice of cigars, ranging from classics from Cuba and the Dominican Republic to largely unknown cigar brands from countries not usually considered the source of good cigars. Along with the tobaccos, the bar will offer a carefully chosen selection of wines and spirits. In addition to excellent single malts and rums, top-quality wines by the glass will be on offer.

A sophisticated electronic Ipad concept will enable guests not only to read the newspaper but also find out in detail about the cigars available in the salon.
