“Solid Hotel in Best Location”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This hotel is located at the entrance of old town, just opposite Porta Nigra. It seems to be the biggest hotel in town. It's perfect to walk into the city (train station 10mins, dome 5mins, many restaurants 5mins). The rooms are quite big. Furniture is a bit on the older side but still ok. Bathroom has no ventilation and the shower is in the bath tub with a glass cover that is not very big so the floor gets wet. We were on the 4th floor and because the 3rd floor, as I understood, is the smokers floor, we couldn't open the window because of the smoke. We even had ashes on our window. Outside, there was a ventilator that made some noise. We didn't book the breakfast (16 E pp) and I think it's overpriced. In the end, it's a good value for money but I would probably book another (smaller) hotel next time.

This is the place you will want to stay at when you visit the charming town of Trier. You need to book a room with view towards the Porta Nigra gate. It's a bargin at 84 Euros.

Coming by car it's very easy to find, and you will drive directly into their convenient parking place.

The hotel is very modern and as clean as it gets. Correct and efficiant reception. Easy check in. (The only thing I would change is the 3 o'clock check-in time, a bit late, isn't it?).

We often use the Mercure chain because of their good locations. This is my favourite so far. Use it!

Our room overlooked the gate and it was nice. Had coffee and tea in room, very clean, very nice staff. Beds were probably the most comfortable to date on this trip. Right at city center. Not very charming but clean, orderly, and very German. Parking only 10€.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking gate are nice.

We spent 2 nights here, as the title says the location is great, just across from the Porta Negra, and the city centre.

A couple of things downgraded it to a 3+ instead of the solid 4 a Mercure hotel would normally get from me.

The water in the bathroom was at best lukewarm, not the greatest for a shave, and a bit uncomfortable for a shower. There is a bit of a noise issue as the rooms on the south side are about 200 metres from the helipad of a large hospital, which gets a good bit of traffic (seemed like there was a medivac chopper landing every hour or so, it was the Whit Sunday holiday period, so likely more accidents on the autobahn than usual). The room was well appointed, with free WiFi, Cable TV etc. Drinks in the minibar were overpriced, but what else is new there? The bed was comfortable and quite firm as I prefer.

The Bar was ok, with a view of the Port Negra, service was good.

It is a very German place
Room are very austere
But view over the porta nigra was really top
Staff at the bar was very gentle
Staff at the restaurant was extremely unpleasant and keen to finish service. They installed the breakfast for next morning. It is extremely uncomfortable which is a shame as the very large bay window overlooking the Porta Negra is really very nice.

Got a room looking directly out at the Porta Nigra, right across the street. Pretty cool thing to wake up to. Can't beat the location, you're easy walking distance to the Roman ruins, the Karl Marx Museum, the cathedral and the old town center. Hotel is a bit dated (60's), but clean and in good repair. Breakfast is good, nice variety, plentiful, and with a view of the Porta Nigra. Only downside was the air conditioning, it didn't cool very well and we had exceptionally warm weather during our stay. But at night we just opened the window wide instead. And despite being right on the road, it wasn't noticeably noisy.

Room Tip: We got a room facing the Porta Nigra, it's a cool thing to gaze upon.
