Small, privately run operation on the edge of Trier. The hosts were receptive and do a good job of keeping the hotel clean. The room was typical of what you'd find in most European hotels, small but functional. Wifi was pretty decent given the age of the building. Breakfast is well worth it (8 EUR at the time of my stay) as there is a wide variety and staff are good at keeping it all well stocked. Seating is roomy and plentiful too.

The following aren't necessarily criticisms, rather things to be aware of. First, parking can be tricky as there's limited space out front and it's really only small-car-friendly. If you get a room at the front of the hotel, expect to hear passing traffic. Although the windows are modern and new, the lack of air conditioning will compel you to open them, thereby letting the noise in. Luckily, it rained during our stay and the temperatures cooled off significantly. Even with them closed, the noise will creep in if you're a light sleeper; it seems to be a busy road. Our room came with two single beds, but they were locked in a double frame so it really didn't matter if it was one mattress or two. Consider asking if the beds can be separated if that's a requirement for you.

I'm sure this last bit was an anomaly but the day we arrived, they were over-booked. Fortunately for us, we didn't get bumped because we weren't the last to check in. I'm pretty sure, however, someone got ushered to the hotel next door that night. Our reservation had been booked online months prior. Consider confirming with the hotel ahead of your arrival, if you can.

Not a bad place by any stretch but the lack of air conditioning (personally) would have me searching elsewhere if there's a next time. That said, the affordability and out-of-town location were bonuses for us.

Our group of three stayed one night. Unfortunately, this was during some hot weather and the lack of AC significantly detracted from what would have made it a great stop over. As were were driving, the distance from the city centre was no issue -- in fact, from the hotel, it is a straight shot to the Porta Nigra. There is free public parking near the hotel, and, if you are lucky, you can park right across from the front door.

The hotel is located on a busy road. However, the sound insulation is spectacular -- with the windows closed, one hears nothing even in a room in the front of the building. But, the heat required us to open the windows and the traffic was loud till around midnight.

The room was quite spacious and the three of us could accommodate ourselves in comfort. Very clean and a modern, spacious bathroom -- nothing to complain about but the pillows which, while looking fluffy, squished down to nothing once one put one's head down! (We just rolled up the duvets and used them as pillows as we had no use for them in the heat.)

The manager/owner is very pleasant and extremely helpful. He takes good care of you and makes sure that your parking is legal! He is also very helpful about restaurants, etc., though we ended up dining at the main square. We did not take breakfast at the hotel.

Apart from the issue of the AC, I would say that this a very good privately owned establishment to stay in. Older building, but updated, with all modern conveniences but for the AC.

It was a restaurant, but it was closed on the night we stayed. In any case, we would have eaten at the city centre as we went out to see the sights in the evening.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not facing the road.

A quaint old city inn called Zur Post looks like something from the turn of the century about one hundred years ago. It displays antiques in the hallways and features a grand carpeted staircase. One can imagine Edwardians staying here and writing to their friends back in England and America about their travels to Trier in Germany to see the Roman ruins. The small hotel offers a restaurant open only for dinner offering late night dining until about midnight. In the morning there was a separate breakfast room. It is close to the French border in Luxembourg. You begin to see French words and dishes such as baguettes. Since it is so old there is no room for parking your car except on the other side of a busy street.

This was a great place to settle after day-tripping around Trier and the Mosel Valley. Our room, in the back of the newer section, was quiet (away from the street noise), clean and comfortable. The manager frequently went out of his way to provide extra help, with information about buses into Trier's Mitte, or about area attractions. He even called ahead, on his own, to one of the nearby castles to ask about their visiting hours. Breakfast was a combination of a wonderfully large buffet and special orders for egg dishes. The attached restaurant, though operated separately from the hotel, has excellent traditional German fare.

The Hotel zur Post is convenient to the freeway, but not near enough to be noisy. It is a quick bus ride to the Zentrum and all its attractions. And it's a fine base from which to explore the beautiful Mosel wine country.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back of the new section. It's away from street noise and in a sharp looking new part of the building.

The reason I have dropped to 'very good' is the difficulty in finding the hotel. Although we had printed out instructions we still had to stop 3 times to ask where it was! It is also a long way out of town (not necessarily a bad thing but as we were only staying for 1 night, we never got into the town itself) Having got the negative out of the way, the hotel was very good. Lovely room and accomodating owner. We had a meal in the resturant in the evening which was very nice with friendly serving staff. (I can recommend the schnitzel)
Breakfast was also very good with a big selection of things. They had run out of eggs but when I asked they immediately put some more on and a few minutes later my egg was delivered personally to my table.
