“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Location for the historic centre of Aachen could not be beaten. Car park underground very useful.
Friendly and helpful receptionist. Room adequate, a little dated but clean and comfy and provided toileteries, TV good shower, comfy beds.Only problem was noisy cars probably taxis using horns well into early hours picking up from a rowdy venue opposite. It was a Saturday night so might be worth asking for a back room. Did not have breakfast as weather lovely and we fancied eating outside but looked good. Would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room if available.

Clean, modern, relaxed, an elevator, friendly staff and a great location for a very reasonable price. Out front, a great sculpture for travel photos, short walk to everything. My husband and I were thrilled to find such a nice place for such a low price.

Great location, loved being so close to beautiful and historique sight seing. The breakfast is very nice and plentiful but the rooms are just average. It needs a little updating, the decor is very blah...Cleansiness could definitely be more of a focus. The staff speak English, that was nice.

Great location - right in the city center. Very helpful staff with good English. Room was big, nothing luxurious, but everything was well maintained.

We needed a good and pleasant hotel for the week end in the centrum of Aachen and choiced Hotel Aquis Grana City. The location could not be better, stone's throw wrom the Rathouse and Cathedral and next to the famous book store Mayersche Buchhandlung, a heaven for all book lovers.
Our hotel room was a little shabby, the furniture little tired and the total impression was not clean, for ex. the curtains were dirty! The bed was good, maybe a little too hard. Our room was quite calm so if you will book a room here you have ask room which not wil be on the street side. There can be lot of noise on the street in the week-end night.
The breakfast was good and varied but the breakfast room was very crowded and noisy because of a big senior groop and therefore unpleasant. The staff in the reception could have been more polite, they hardly welcomed you.

Room Tip: Ask a quiet room as high as possible ant into the couryard.

Good value for money. Is just in the city center, with the Aachen Dom almost in the front of the Hotel . With good restaurants and bars nearby. It makes possible to enjoy the city through walking. The employees are very nice and all speak english. Breakfast is five stars, lots of variety and good quality. Room was big enough. The only complication was to park the car cause the parking was 11euros a day...

I was booked into this hotel since the Novotel that the company normally books had no Vacancy at the inn.
The hotel is centrally located which is good.
The room in the hotel was two singles put together with a pack of haribo instead of mints on the pillow.
The room only has a shower and not a bath unless you book a suite.
This is probably the second hotel that does not have a coffee machine or similar device within the room (the only other hotel was a 5* who never had coffee in the room as they wanted to charge you extortionate amounts for freshly delivered amounts).
For a Brit I am probably arrogant in the fact that the only English channel the room had was CNN (American not British)
It was past 8 in the evening when I reached the hotel, so I went down to reception to be told that the hotel does not have a restaurant and only served breakfast in a very tastefully decorated dining area.
I stayed at the hotel for three nights and found that the cleaner was not really cleaning the room. The room had a bottle of water on the first night which was not replaced. The glass I used to drink the water was not replaced nor was it returned to the tray when the room was cleaned. The bed was made up by the same duvet and the towels in the bathroom were the only things replaced. My clothes were left where they were (it was like the cleaner cleaned around my things).

I can say the room was comfortable but other than that the hotel had no amenities that a business traveller who is tired after the journey welcomes.
Next trip to Aachen means a return to the Novotel.
