The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. The trivago Awards 2018 results are inafter reviewing the data and tallying the scores, it’s time to reveal the best-rated hotels around the world.

To determine which hotels have the highest consistent ratings, trivago uses the trivago Rating Index (tRI). Our comprehensive and reliable index of hotel ratings aggregates millions of guest reviews from across multiple online sources and uses an algorithm to provide a dependable and impartial score for each hotel.

Each year, the trivago Awards recognise and reward hotels that represent the very best of hospitality. Only the hotels that provide an exceptional level of service and guest experience can achieve the highest endorsement trivago gives to hotels.

This year, the top-rated hotels have been awarded across six different categories:

  • 3-star
  • 4-star
  • 5-star
  • Alternative Accommodation
  • Value for Money

About the trivago Awards 2018

trivago analyses aggregated ratings and reviews of hotels across the world to find which hotels have the best ratings amongst travellers. This way, we give hoteliers the chance to receive recognition for their hard work and uniquely highlight and publicise their achievements to a world of travellers.

All winning hotels receive prestigious award-indicators such as certificates to put on display, widgets for their website and social media pages, and more. Also, the number one hotel in each category gets to take home a coveted trivago Awards trophy along with a winner’s badge for their hotel profile. All this will increase their visibility and guest appeal both online and offline.

By becoming an award-winning hotel, hoteliers showcase their hotel as much more than an accommodation but as a guest experience that will live with the guests for many years.

*The trivago Awards 2018 for the Chain Hotel category have been awarded in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
