Booked secure private parking which isn't actually available! 27 degrees and no air con, absolutely disgusted for the price! Small room and bathroom, very dated, not a modern hotel at all but with modern hotel costs! Would not recommend!

We chose this hotel based on earlier reviews but were somewhat disappointed as we would class it as rather tired looking, especially our room, although we were fortunate in changing from a room overlooking the busy road to one at the back of the hotel - a big plus point on a very hot night. The Altstadt Hotel is next door to the Hotel Römischer Kaiser and is run by the same management company. We will stay there next time as for very little extra money the Römischer Kaiser is much 'fresher' looking and it has an excellent restaurant. The staff appeared to be more friendly as well.

I chose this hotel based on the reviews, which were quite good, and its proximity to the Altstadt where there was a weekend-long street festival going on. The price was better than other nearby hotels. However, I was not impressed. The room was small, a bit shabby and hot and did not have ac, which is typical of hotels in Germany. The bathroom was very tiny. The one good thing to point out was the breakfast, which at least on the weekend included sparkling wine with which you could make a Mimosa. There is parking down the street in a private parking lot and it was free.

It is worth paying a few more Euros for better hotels in the area.

The location of this hotel is perfect for a visit to the old town Trier, next to Porta Nigra, the Roman gate. Unfortunately also next to a major street, which makes it rather noisy, especially on the lower floors. The room, again, was spacious and comfortable, even with a small balcony. Good bathroom, and all-in-all, this must have been four stars, at least some years back! The breakfast was very delicious, and even a glass of very nice Sekt was included. Good was: location, overall standard, private parking, and style. Not so good: the noise that went on till the midnight and after, the slow and unpredictable (!) elevator - one only. Still I am happy to recommend a stay in Altstadt Hotel.

This is the sister hotel of the Romischer Kaiser across the road, but apparently the big sister is a lot nicer. Anyway, the Altstadt is well-located right by the Porta Nigra and hence a short walk into the beautiful old town of Trier. Our first floor room was not too small, but the two single beds were narrow and the pillows rather like large handkerchiefs, offering no head support at all. The room was very hot, there was no air-con and opening the windows let in a lot of street noise, as well as light. There was no mini bar nor hairdryer. The shower was quite effective and hot water easily available. Carpets were getting worn out. The staff were surly and disinterested, the receptionist barely able to make eye contact - when she was actually at the desk, that is. The maid service for cleaning the room was lazy and inefficient. Breakfast was very simple and lacking any imagination, and the pastries were stale. The selection of breads was rather nice and a good cappuccino was available for no extra cost. Orange juice was hideously acidic squash. All in all, a dreary, run down hotel making no effort at all to win new, or look after existing, customers.

Stayed: May 2016
