We spent one night in this location. The Porta Negra was right by our window. The location is superb, the room basic but impeccably clean. This is a very good value. They serve a good breakfast and are very helpful. Wifi is offered for free but was a bit slow at times ( but we were not there to surf... More

The hotel is located in a great spot to be in the heart of Trier...right next to Porta Nigra. Parking is off-site but only a short distance away. The bed was very uncomfortable and the wooden support slats under my husband's side of the bed broke during the night. The "free wi-fi" didn't work in the room. Decent breakfast the... More

This Hotel is a rocks throw away from Porta Nigra. The main street for access to shopping and touristing is just out the main door and to the left . About 1/2 mile from the main train station for luggage draggers. Staff was average and certain ones made you really work on your German communication skills. Others were awesome and... More

We stayed here for 1 night having been transferred from a city hotel which was overbooked . Great location and we were on the 3rd floor and almost able to touch Porta Nigra. The room was a good size and the bathroom was modern and again a good size. There is no on site parking but the hotel has 5... More

We stayed in this hotel for several nights in June 2014 and have very mixed feelings about it, especially after reading so many good reviews. I couldn’t say it was bad stay, but there were some serious “turn off” points. It’s very unlikely that we’ll stay in this hotel again. I’ll start with good things: excellent location - quick walk...

We stayed at Zum Christophel for two nights in May 2014. The location is excellent, a quick five blocks from the train station, next to the Roman Porta Nigra gate, at the north end of the main shopping street, and a quick walk to the cathedral and museums. The breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was quite good, and allowed us... More

My husband and I spent one evening here following a Christmas party, and it was a lovely stay. The rooms themselves are fairly spartan, but comfortable, and we had a room that overlooked the Porta Nigra, which was terrific. Breakfast was excellent, with a wide variety of choices, and the location can't be beat. Terrific for a quick getaway.

Buffét breakfast was all right. Close to everything - shoping, sightseeing, restaurants, bars and cafés. Stay here if you... More

I booked this place 3 weeks before arrival, asking for a room overlooking the Porta Nigra and specifying (and therefore paying) a parking place. I never got any answer concerning the room, and was given a "stupid room" (no light next to the massive armchair and none either on the desk that doesn't allow any comfortable reading, when taking a...

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed everything about this hotel. The location couldn't be better - an easy walk from the hbf, right opposite the Porta Nigra and tourist information office, and about 150m from the main shops and Christmas markets. There are bus stops right at the door too. Our room was comfortable with plenty of space for 3... More
