The grand Hotel Les Trois Rois, with its 325-year-long history, is one of the oldest hostelries in Europe still in existence. This first, richly illustrated monograph on Basel's most important hotel sheds light on the history and architecture of the hotel as well as its gastronomy and the daily business of running it.
From the very beginning Les Trois Rois was a meeting place for the elite of Europe and a favoured residence for important state visitors. The role of innkeepers in Basel is as carefully examined as the birth of travel by steamships on the Rhine and then the railways. The book, which draws on primary sources, offers a fascinating history of individuals and their cultural milieu.
