We were at Sorell Hotel Aarauerhof for 1 night while visiting a friend living in Aarau. The hotel is very well located, the bus terminal in front and the train station by the right. The town is located on the left. We had an awesome time walking around looking at sights and shops. Very clean rooms and good breakfast. As... More

I always enjoy staying at the Aarauerhof when I am in Aarau for business. The hotel is conveniently located at the train station, is very clean, has free internet, the staff is friendly, proficient in English and has a very nice breakfast buffet. Rooms can get quite warm when the weather is hot since there is no air conditioning. Then,... More

We stayed there for 1 night in MAY 2015. Although the hotel is far from city limits, it has a good location and surroundings. The rooms are ok but the biggest drawback being that there is no AC. It was very suffocating with out AC. If windows are opened, it seems pleasant, but the street noise disturbs your sleep. Bathrooms... More

Placed on the central part of Aarau, the Hotel is strictly near the bus station, the train station and a parking structure is accessible at 20 m from it. Very friendly and professional staff. Rooms are not so big but perfectly cleaned.

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

Stayed at this hotel in July. Lovely central clean hotel, 2 mis from railway station. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food also very good. 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.
