Les Trois Rois lies at the very heart of the city of Basel, facing the Rhine River. Peruse the guestbook to find visitors like Empress Michiko of Japan, author James Joyce, and artist Pablo Picasso. The lobby is your first introduction to a property that doesn’t hold back on bold details, like arched windows and vivid colors.

Rooms and suites are a combination of historic details and the latest comforts, each one exuding a rich character. Some Art Deco suites feature fireplaces and spectacular views of the Rhine from your own private balcony, decked out with table and chairs. Look up to the charming frescoes and stucco work for a peek back in time. Guests marvel at unique history and decor at every turn at Les Trois Rois—a glittering chandelier here, a velvet upholstered chair there. It’s all a little flamboyant, but endlessly interesting. Sumptuous baroque wallcoverings and drapery envelop the river-facing suites. The bridge you see over the river is one of the oldest in the region, dating back to the 16th century.

When you are hungry, head down to one of three restaurants at Les Trois Rois. Choose from menus of French haute cuisine, Mediterranean, Italian, and Asian. Ingredients are brought in fresh from the local market and showcase the many flavors of the region. Admire the Rhine from the massive windows of the Brasserie Les Trois Rois. A musician plays classical sounds on the piano in the bar. Go on a journey of discovery through the history of cocktails, or sign up for a Remy Martin cognac tasting.

Basel features an extraordinary range of cultural events throughout the year including concerts, exhibitions, and theatre. The central location of Les Trois Rois is key with so much to see and do within walking distance. Nearby you will find a whole host of museums, from the Fine Arts Museum to the Museum of Natural History.
