Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The location was an easy walk from the train station and just a half block from the Porta Nigra and the old town section of Trier. The room was clean and fresh. Breakfast was excellent. The woman who managed the breakfast room was friendly and efficient and there was a variety of food offered. The breakfast room was attractive and pleasant. The only significant negative: During our stay the elevator was not available. Some visitors might be disturbed because there was not a 24-hour desk clerk but we were given a key to enter the building.

Booked at the Hotel Paulin in May 2005 for one night for a triple room at 110 Euro/night. Or rather I thought I had booked. We turned up at the hotel at 4.00 pm on a day when it was 38 C in the shade to find that they had no booking for us! Going onto the internet I was able to show them that I had responded to their email offer well within the deadline they set - but somehow my acceptance had not arrived with them.

The yound man at the reception did help by ringing around other hotels for us and found a triple room about 10 minutes drive away. This turned out to be quite acceptable as a place to stay for a night, so a possible disaster turned into an annoyance and meant that we were not able to see Trier as we had planned. One of the things that attracted us to the Paulin was its proximity to the Porta Nigra. We will have to return (with a confirmed booking)!

From what we saw the Paulin looked OK, indeed in real life the breakfast area looked better than it did on the hotel's website.

I'd be prepared to try again.

We loved the Hotel Paulin from the cheerful check-in to the easy check-out. Our room looked identical to the one featured in the photo shown here. After arriving in Trier following a week on the river in a tiny boat cabin, our "comfort room" felt like a palace. Plus, our intended hotel (Casa Chiara) had turned us away because they claimed I had not completed their reservation process (see my review) so we were without lodging upon arrival--the traveler's nightmare. The tourist office at Porta Nigra (excellent service there) located the room at the Paulin for us. It should be noted that the Paulin beds with real goosedown pillows were wonderful, but on the day we checked out, brand new mattresses were lined up in the hallway awaiting placement! Breakfast is optional for 8 Euros (I think). Highly recommend this place.

I have been travelling to Trier for over twelve years staying, twice a year, at the two Mercury hotels as were, decided to test out Hotel Paulin as a new place to stay since was tired of the Golden Tulip and the Mercury trying to charge for internet. Least these hotels honoured credit card bookings, the Paulin does not in bumps you on arrival as being "over booked" aka we can make more money by taking another booking than one placed two months ago. After driving for four hours from Dunkirk being rewarded with "their is a problem" and you can't stay here since we are over booked is shabby and underhand, poor business processes and whatever else you like to levy on a hotel that decides to cancel your booking without notice since they can make more money by taking a short term booking than one made long term on lower rates with a credit card guarantee.

Advice don't use this hotel since they are unreliable and have poor business ethics and treat you like a backpacker.

We stayed here because of reviews and we weren't disappointed. One block from Porta Nigra and an incredible shopping area. Caught the Roman Train (9€) and saw many of Triers high points. Management Nancy - and her wonderful dog) were delightful and was very helpful in resolving an issue with breakfast being included. We recommend Hotel Paulin highly and will stay there again,

We stayed here for three nights on our visit for the German Christmas market. The hotel is perfectly placed for the Christmas Market, all the shops and restaurants. This hotel is the best budget hotel we have ever stayed in. The rooms are very clean and well equipped. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here one night. I Chose this hotel due to location and price, and after reading the reviews of people who had stayed there.

I found the location excellent, the service was fine, the cleanliness was good, the room was large, the mattresses seemed new, and very comfortable, the bathroom appeared newly decorated. Breakfast was good. Since my room faced sideways, it was very quiet (no street noise).
There’s a lift, though, my room was only on the 1st floor, so I had no problems using the stairs. There’s a bar at the front of the hotel, but, I didn’t try it. Also, since Norma’s cheapie supermarket and in-store bakery are right next-door, it’s easy to get yourself some food if you want it.

I will go back, and would recommend this for other travellers with or without a car. The hotel had a car park (not sure how many spaces are available).
There are many bus stops nearby, and the station is an easy 10 minute walk away.

It is useful to know a little of the German language to assist if you want to ask for something, as not all of the staff had a good command of English. I am sure they would go and find someone who did speak English, as they seemed pleased to help.
It did gave me a chance to practice a little German anyway!

A few things not so good:
The flow of water in the shower was better than average, but not what I was expecting.
The air seemed somewhat stuffy, both in my room, and in the restaurant. (Next time, at least I will make better use of the window in my room).
The breakfast seemed lacking in quantity. Having stayed in a few hotels in Germany, normally I have found the breakfast to be very generous (I guess the Germans want to get value for money, because ‘they’re worth it’). I am used to helping myself to having about 4 small cups of coffee with my breakfast, though I had to ask for a pot, as there wasn’t any on sight. I think they would normally ask customers if they wanted coffee, but just missed me by chance.
Although, there was a good choice of food, it felt like, there might not be enough to go around. Indeed the rolls ran out, about 45 minutes before the end of the breakfast serving time. I was going to ask if they would provide some more, though, one of the waitresses returned with just a small supply to keep us going. It just felt like everyone was being encouraged to only have a small amount of everything.
The view from my window, was the car park, and the back of Norma’s superstore (not picturesque, just plain).

This was my second stay at the Paulin - the first had been a result of a booking mix-up with another hotel, but turned out to be very fortunate. This is a very pleasant hotel with plenty of facilities, an excellent breakfast buffet, friendly service and a convenient situation just outside the Porta Nigra. I shall certainly stay there again. My companion on the first visit found traffic noise a bit of a problem in the rooms at the front, but she's used to living in a very quiet place, while I live on a main road.

The staff were extremely friendly. The room was what I paid for. It is really close to Old town and a lot of the sites. There is also a budget supermarket downstairs and next door where you can buy inexpensive snacks and drinks. There was construction going on a crossed the street. But I was usually up and gone before they started and back after they stopped. Late sleepers may have a issue with this. The breakfast was better than average. I would stay here again.

nothing spectacular to this hotel. Well priced and very close to both centre and train station. Rooms are ok, nothing exceptional. The decor is doubtful but ok for a night. Service was welcoming and friendly.
