About your hotel’s online reputation score on the trivago Rating Index™
The trivago Rating Index™, or tRI, aggregates millions of guest reviews from across multiple online sources. An algorithm then renders this data into reliable overall reputation scores for the hotels on trivago — including your own property.
It’s what makes trivago one of the best hotel review sites in the world, according to Forbes.
The purpose of the tRI is twofold. For travelers, it’s a resource to use while searching for the ideal hotel. For hoteliers, the tRI is a free online reputation tool for monitoring what their guests think of their property, services, and amenities.

What if your hotel or tRI score doesn’t appear on trivago?
If you don’t see your property on trivago, you can add it by following the steps outlined in this article.
If your hotel profile on trivago doesn’t have a tRI score, it’s most likely because there aren’t enough guest ratings and reviews available for your property online. For the tRI to calculate a score for your property, you’ll need at least 10 reviews. This article has some excellent advice on how to get more online guest reviews.
