trivago Hotel Test - Real feedback from real guests


A comprehensive tool for unbeatable insight and strengthened trivago visibility

trivago is excited to offer you the chance to have your hotel evaluated by real guests on up to 400 criteria! Get increased visibility on trivago as well as unbiased, raw feedback about your hotel’s strengths and weaknesses in comparison to other hotels to find out first-hand what your guests want to see more of….and what they already love about your business.

What is the trivago Hotel Test?

The trivago Hotel Test is a comprehensive and standardised assessment survey.

How does it work?

Over the span of 2-6 months, about 20-100 Hotel Testers make a booking at your hotel and pay full price to spend the night. Before and after their stay, Testers are required to fill out an extensive questionnaire with up to 400 criteria, covering the core areas of your hotel, their experiences staying with you, in addition to personal booking behaviour and preferences of the individual Tester.

Once the questionnaires are finished, trivago will complete an analysis of how your hotel stands in comparison to all other hotels on trivago, which will be available to you as a download.

Why you should take part in the Hotel Test

By taking part in the Hotel Test, your hotel profile on trivago will become much more detailed and attractive to potential guests. To put it plainly, the more comprehensive your profile, the more visibility you will get on trivago. And more visibility means more bookings!

Not only that, during the testing period, your hotel will be put at the top of trivago’s search list and highlighted on and as a Test Hotel. This increased visibility will bring even more attention to your business. During this time, you will also receive weekly updates about the test reports, which you can use immediately to identify strengths, weaknesses and implement any necessary adjustments.

What’s more, every Hotel Tester pays the full rate to stay at your hotel. Not only does this mean 20-100 automatic bookings when you sign up to be a Test Hotel, it also means that any amount you spend to take part in the Test will be reimbursed to you….and then some.
