The main image is the first impression travelers have of your hotel profile. Yet, that's only the beginning.

Your image library should have a great variety of 20 high-quality photos that show rooms and areas of your property in the best light, giving curious travelers on trivago an opportunity to visualize a stay with you.



How to upload images

To access your profile's image library, select Images from the navigation menu on the left.



  1. Click on Add new images to upload one or more photos at a time from your computer or mobile device
  2. Choose a photo of your property's façade or a room type to set the main image
  3. Tick the box on one or more images to assign a room type or delete
  4. Click on the arrow at the bottom of a photo to see a list of options from the drop-down menu. You can set a main image, assign a room type, or delete
  5. This icon means that the image is pending approval. This process usually takes up to 24 hours. 
  6. This icon means that a photo is low quality. We recommend replacing it with one that's higher quality.
