Rooms are basic small and noisey. Staff are nice and wellness area is lovely. Location is ok but locating the parking is a bit of a challenge. The cost is high for what you get even though it is Switzerland.

I had to stay in Aarau for business purpose. The choice of the Arauerhof was obvious, a few steps away from the main station and therefore only 50 min of comfortable ride to Zurich airport. I got a nice room at the first look. Pretty big according to Swiss standards. After a look on the fire evacuation plan, it seems... More

I stayed about 12 days due to some business reasons and they can do better that what they do. Service quality is not good. Rooms are old and not well maintained. Small rooms but manageable. Housekeeping is not good. Food is terrible. No value for money

This hotel is very clean, the spa is great, especially when on business it gives you something to do in the evening. The breakfast was great only continental but not problems. Only thing is there is no coffee and tea making facilities. Overall I would recommend staying in this hotel I am due back there tomorrow again on business, so... More

Very good hotel at bus and train station. We had a room just above bus station and I was awoken few times by church bells. I did not hear buses. It has a free wi-fi, HD television and room is clean very comfortable, with a bath tub. Breakfast was average and staff was polite.

The hotel is located next to the train station, which is very convenient. The rooms were clean and tidy. The hotel is expensive but you pay for the great location, otherwise nothing special. Breakfast is average, don't expect full English breakfast.

Nothing special, but convenient. right next to the train and bus station and Aarau is only small so its all very walk-able. Breakfast is very good, but the rooms are pretty small, dated, and 'stuffy' with little natural 'air'. the toilet design is also very strange as the toilet seat doesn't stay up, if you are male or female ......

Still the same, rather old-ish hotel with no noise insulation and very basic rooms. The room is not precisely small, it fits well one person, but the bath is rather optimized. No frills in the room (like a coffe machine) but good wifi connection. Very nice berakfast.
