You need to connect... More

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... More

Clean, basic accommodation, perfect location right in town and good value. Free Wi-Fi is available. Very helpful young lady on reception who recommended restaurants and places to visit. Rooms were basic but clean. Perfect for a city break.

That said it was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for the Porta Nigra and the main square, literally a few minutes walk... More

15 minute walk from the station. Easily found after directions given at the Tourist Information. Hotel doesn't look much from the outside, but once in the reception the hotel and surroundings any concerns I had, had gone. The room was fine, and clean.
