Grand Hôtel les Trois Rois

Basel, Switzerland

Blumenrain 8, Basel, Switzerland

The Grand Hôtel Les Trois Rois is a history buff’s choice of accommodation par excellence.

In the Middle Ages, ships docked around here, at the salt tower, and transported produce down the Rhine and into the world. Lying at the heart of Basel, Grand Hôtel Les Trois Rois is one of the oldest city hotels in Europe, founded in 1681 as an inn for gentlemen and rebuilt in 1844 as a Grand Hotel. Its guests were – and are – illustrious, visiting from all around the world: Empress Michiko of Japan, James Joyce, Pablo Picasso, and Thomas Mann to name a few. The hotel’s ambiance and aesthetic fits such a historical legacy: you’ll find a marble lobby; gilded arches and ceiling frescoes; a chandelier-adorned lift; a three-star Michelin restaurant; a pianist who plays Chopin while you sip cocktails.
