“Good price. But that's it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Ok, and the service was nice. But seriously, I never slept in such a hard bed in my whole life. My back hurt so much in the next day I couldn't even carry my purse around. It's sort of a very thin mattress and underneath it, a wooden bed. So you can imagine what it does to you. I can take a hard bed, but this one was out of the ordinary.

Second, "free internet". The "free internet" speed is 250 kbps, which means you won't be able to check your e-mails. Or you will, if you are patient enough to wait around 20 minutes for your browser to open. I wasn't. If you want more capacity, you have to pay for it.

Third, we had bikes, so it wasn't a problem, but I would say you have to walk at least half a kilometer to get to the hotel. If your bags are too heavy...

Fourth, the shower is good, but the box had two "holes" for its design which make the water spread all over the bathroom. I wonder who was the genius who came up with that.

Anyway... better luck next time.

This Ibis hotel is typically immaculate, tidy and clean and the price was very reasonable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would stay at the Ibis chain over any other chain in the same market. There is always value for money and I have yet to meet a staff member who wasn't charming and helpful. The hotel is well located to view the attractions in town. 2 thumbs up !!

Room Tip: The rooms were quiet, even facing the front street.

An excellent IBIS hotel, well located on the edge of the central area. Reception staff were all very friendly and polite and helpful. The room was typical of Ibis, small with a tiny bathroom but immaculately clean. We were able to park the car securely for I think 6 euros per night - I have paid £20 in other cities. The lobby/restaurant was very welcoming - I didnt expect to find a bar there and not expensive for snacks. The breakfast was good different varieties of bread and some hot food but not particularly cheap. We hadnt intended to have breakfast in the hotel but there didnt appear to be any breakfast places particularly near. An excellent example of an IBIS hotel - good value for money in a good location and spotless. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel situated near to cenrum so it is easy to walk. My room was spotlessly clean and I had a very comfortable bed to sleep. Bathroom was tiny but clean and had suitable place for dusch. All the staff was polite and helpful.

The Ibis Aachen is located close to the train station and is only a 15 minute walk or less to the down town area of the city. The rooms are the usual Ibis style but they actually have a good air con system. the rooms are simple but comfortable. I liked the fact they had pay secure parking for 6 euros which was a godsend. the staff are polite, friendly and professional. I would stay here again for a one night stay in the city.
