“Some positives”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Nice, clean and tidy small hotel, not quite "am Ufer" (=on the riverbank) but very near. Other reviews say it's a 10 minute walk to the city centre, but to do it in 10 minutes you would need to be marching purposefully - I would say it's at least a 15 minute walk to the centre. A good hotel for an overnight stop but lacking in facilities so you probably wouldn't want to spend more than a night there. The generous breakfast is superb. Note that credit cards are not accepted, you have to pay cash or with EC card.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a rear facing room - the road at the front is noisy.

This is a typical small hotel in two adjoining houses, three floors, no lifts (in our part anyway). Simple, immaculately clean, one of the best power showers ever, no kettle in the room for tea/coffee. Excellent typically German breakfast with fresh rolls, fruit, meats, cheeses etc. Very helpful staff, but payment only in cash or EC card - VISA/Mastercard etc not accepted. Parking might be difficult - only a few small places directly in front of hotel; spaces on the adjacent side-road, but subject to timing. About 10 minutes walk into city centre. Recommended for short stays. The river is just across the main road facing the hotel, but we didn't have time to explore in that direction.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back might be quieter if you want to sleep with the window open.

Hotel Am Ufer was nice and tidy place in Trier near river Moselle and 10 minutes walk away from old town and Porta Nigra. Hotels breakfast was worth of paying. Room was big enough and bed was good, staff were friendly. Only minus was that room did not have a refrigerator. I warmly recommend this hotel to every traveller.

We stayed 1 night on route. We found it by coincidence when we turned of the highway. We went for a walk along the river which was just opposit the street. We also went into the center of Trier which was in walking distance. The room was nice, clean. Staf was very friendly.

We wanted one night in a hotel on the river in Trier on our way back to the ferry port of Dunkirk and we found this one on booking.com. Price was right for the location and we were very happy with our find. The breakfast was indeed a good spread. Our room was quiet and airy, bed was comfy. The bathroom was clean and looked newly refurbished with great shower.

We happened across this hotel on our visit to Trier when some of the larger hotels were full. The hotel is a nice walk from the city centre with some parking. It is only a 10 minute walk and you are in the centre of Trier and the river is a 2 minute walk.
The owner is very pleasant and welcoming. The rooms are a good size, clean and quiet despite the Germans celebrating a football win. The decor is a bit 80's in colour and design but then brown and orange are coming back into fashion. The bathroom was good size and worked well but it is a long time since I have seen an avocado suite.
The breakfast was the best from all of the hotels from 3 - 5 star that we stayed at on this trip through Germany with a plentiful supply of fresh meats, Cheese, bread, eggs, yogurts, fruit and anything else you needed.
For a short stay in a beautiful city I would recommend this hotel within this price range. They do not take credit cards as with many small hotels in Germany.

My wife, my two kids and I were looking for a nice cheap hotel to have a stop-over while travelling back home from our holiday in Austria.
Trier seemed a good choice considering the distances we had to travel.

- The hotel "Am Ufer" offered us a 4-persons room at a vey affordable price. The room had big windows and was really spatious. I have been in "4-persons-rooms" before and they are sometimes very cramped. This was definitively not the case here. The bathroom was ok (only a shower, but some other rooms have bath tubs, I suspect)

- The welcome was friendly and we even got a little map of Trier showing us all the interesting places to visit

- the hotel is not situated in the center of town, but it is very easy to reach by car. You have to walk ten minutes trough quiet streets to get to the center. We thought it was an enjoyable walk

- There is only limited parking space at the hotel. But you can park you car on the street (you will need to pay for this. But prices are quite reaonable)

- Breakfast costs 5 euro per person extra, but it is certainly worth the price. Nothing fancy, but everything you need is basically there (including some smoked salmon, which I absolutely adore for breakfast ;-)

- Every morning you'll find a little paper at the breakfast table with information on everything interesting that is happening that day in town (special performances, tours, guides, ...) A very nice touch.

- You'll find free internet access in the 'lobby' on a desktop computer.
There is Wifi in the hotel. I haven't used it, so I am not quite sure if you have to pay for it...

- You can't pay be credit card, so you will have to use either Maestro or cash....

To conclude: we were only looking for a cheap hotel to sleep in between two long days of traveling by car to get home, but we found a very nice, friendly place to stay...

Room Tip: if you are a couple travelling with two kids and don't mind staying in one room then room 22 is...
