Established in the late 16th century along the border area, the Grand Hotel Les Trois is beholding. Its elegant décor and historical aura set the stage. Moreover, it is one of the oldest city hotels that provides contemporary amenities like free Wi-Fi, pools, bars, lounges, and restaurants. With a mesmerizing view of the river Rhine, Les Trois Rois hotel is short from several tourist hotspots and positioned at the chief trade route.

Additionally, the resort has an intimate yet flamboyant background that has guests coming back for more. Moreover, among the hotels in Europe, Grand Hotel Les Trois has one of the richest traditions.

History

On the bank of the Rhine, the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois has entertained numerous prominent figures with its exclusive hospitality over the years. These include Queen Elisabeth ll, Thomas Mann, and Pablo Picasso. It is a dormitory for the elite and the nobility. The hotel was laid down in 1681 when the first official record of the 'At the Three Kings' or 'Three Kings' was released at Blumenrain 8 in Basel.

Moreover, the Basel aristocracy hosts many of its family events and state receptions here. Personalities like traders, diplomats, and crowned heads, conquering the worlds of culture and science, also lodge here frequently.

In 1841 and 1842, Johann Jakob Senn, the wealthy tailor master, acquired the estate. She later demolished some parts to build the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois, which the architect Amadeus Merian planned. Grand Hotel Les Trois opened its doors to the public on 16th February 1844 and was run by different owners. However, in 1936, new directors were appointed, which marked the start of a glorious era.

Later, in 2004, the hotel underwent extensive renovations, inspired by the national heritage. Finally, it opened again on 20th March 2006 with its luxurious infrastructure and a graceful, mystique façade that persists today.
