One of the oldest Swiss hotels “Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois”, located in Basel downtown, on Rhine riverside is in the middle of the sales deal, with Russian businessmen performing as the potential new owners. The hotel was officially opened in 1844, on the place where in the XI-century was located a castle, which had sheltered a historical meeting of the Holy Roman Emperor Conrad II, his son and the king of France Henry III, and the last king of Burgundy Rudolph II — it is possible that this exact historical event gave the famous hotel its name “Three Kings”. Other historical documents claim that construction of the hotel happened in 1681, while in 1844 it was simply refurbished. “Three Kings” is one of the oldest European hotels, the guest book of which reads like a “Who’s who” of world history. Napoleon, Elizabeth II, Pablo Picasso, Thomas Mann and many other leading figures have enjoyed the hotel’s legendary hospitality.
