Despite the fact the were some issues with the room reservation hotel staff was able to manage the situation immediately. Quality of hotel service is high and personel is customer-focused. The rooms are modest and clean. The localization is the strongest point, near to main railway station and very close to old town and shopping spots.

the hotel is ideally located right next to the railway station and just a minute's walk form the Old City - which in itself is very nice: Aarau should attract more tourist then it does now. Just look at the overhanging roofs, the painted gables etc. The hotel restaurant has been getting better over the years and we recently enjoyed... More

Only criticism is price of underground hotel car park. 25Sf per day. The hotel advise they have no control over this as it is part of municipal car park and they already have a reduced rate... More

This is a nice hotel with comfortable and recently refurbished rooms. Breakfast included is an adequate buffet with trimmings. Only issue is if it's very warm, which it was on our visit , there is no AC and if your window is open you are subject to the sounds of the nearby train station. It is very conveniently located with... More

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.
