Trivop is an online hotel review portal claiming to be the first videoguide for hotels.
In essence, Trivop.com allows consumers to start their hotel search by watching hotel videos, giving them richer data that can be used in making an educated choice when deciding upon a hotel to stay in. The layout of the site is completely mashup: Google Maps are used as a base from which submitted videos as well as hotel reviews (pulled from TripAdvisor) are added on. Users can explore the hotels’ surroundings, public facilities and all bedroom categories. The videos themselves can be submitted by the hotel or users. Trivop has launched covering Paris with plans to expand coverage across Europe.
Trivop has been bought by [HRS|http://www.hrs.com/] in 2009 for an unknown price.
