Discover Basel, the tri-border area and the charm of our region. Allow yourself to be pampered – to make your stay in our small cosmopolitan city unforgettable.

The legend lives on

One of the oldest city hotels in Europe – founded in 1681 as an inn for gentlemen, rebuilt in 1844 as a Grand Hotel  – receives guests from all over the world. Such a tradition demands commitment – which we live out fully every day. Learn more about the history and people who are part of this tradition: Experience the living past.

A grand hotel, a proud past

Man has always been a traveller. Hospitality characterises our culture. So it is no wonder that it is in inns and hotels in particular that history lives on. The guestbook of the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois reads like a who's who of world history. Empress Michiko of Japan, James Joyce and Pablo Picasso: were all guests for a while at our hotel.
