I had a weekend to make a trip to Trier and booked a last minute room at the Hotel Porta Nigra. Checking in, at 10:45 in the morning, was a breeze. I was taken to my room, one of the cheaper "single" rooms (Rooms 18, 19, 20). The room was a bit chilly (and smelled of cigarettes) when I dropped...

Last evening I had a room at this hotel my arrival was at 20,40 and as usual in Germany I had a code to get key. Room was small and clean but heaters were completely off and water was cold. It was a nightmare to sleep. In morning I made my claim to reception they told they had a problem....

I booked this hotel in July for a 1 night stay on New Year's Eve 2016. We were due to arrive at the hotel around 6 pm, as we had a long drive from Austria. We arrived at 18:20, the hotel was in darkness, the doors were locked, a couple walked out of a side door, I asked if they...

Stayed 3 nights, the hotel is spotlessly clean and perfectly situated close to town centre but other than that very average. We were on the top floor which meant sporadic hot water when showering if indeed you got water at all. Breakfast standard continental and could not cope with volume of guests on Sunday. Recommend taking breakfast locally at half...

This is absolutely the most dishonest place I have ever been. Firstly they state to be open until 19:00, which they are not. Then the rooms are really bad, you can literally hear every word from the neighbouring room. Then the internet is an absolute ly, they use the free vodafone connection available on the street. You need to connect...

Dont book this hotel if you want something special that is in their description.I booked thi hotel because they said there was WiFI there but there was no WiFi in my room... very uncomfortable to spend the evening without it... And it was very cold in the room when I enter inside. Really not happy about it

A small centrally located hotel next to the Porta Nigra and only some minutes walking from the main train station, very helpful staff and excellent breakfast, the coffee was very tasty. The price in an otherwise quite expensive Trier was very good for what we got, the location is excellent, walking distance everywhere. We could even leave our luggage at...

The location is great, near to the Porta Nigra and the main train station, as well as several good places to eat. At check in the lady was very friendly and helpful in recommending place to eat near by. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the Ports Nigra and less than 15 minutes to the main train...
