Stayed here for two nights while in Aachen for the weekend. The hotel is conveniently located at a short only a short walk from the central station. Hotel rooms are the size of the Ibis hotels in Paris, so be prepared for a tiny bathroom. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly, and the 24 hour bar is a definite... More

Our room was tiny and the bathroom minuscule. I honestly don't know how a fat person would manage. As you'd expect from an Ibis the place is clean and well managed although one or two staff members didn't look too happy. No law against that. The hotel is very easy to find being only a short walk from the station.... More

As so often with big hotel chains, words like “Centre” or “XX station” do not necessarily mean the hotel in very close to the item mentioned: at Aachen Main Station (“Hauptbahnhof”) there was a signpost to this hotel, but I had to use my mobile phone map in order not to get lost: a good ten minutes’ walk.

Room is small, but very clean and calm. The staff was friendly. perfect location near train station and city center... around 15 mins walk to attractions. Many restaurants nearby. I'd like come again if I visit Aachen again. Food at the Hotel's restaurant was decent.

The Ibis Hauptbahnhof in Aachen is a safe, if dated budget choice. The room was spacious, if bare, and clean. The towels really left something to be desired, however. The hotel is an easy walk to the Dom and just down the street from a new mall.

Only stayed one night while making our way to Calais. The room was small and the ensuite very small, but for one night, adequate. Clean of course, with sky tv.but, no tea/coffee facilities in room, a bar, also breakfast at €11 we thought that expensive and didn't bother. The young receptionist was very friendly and helpful.We parked our bike just... More

The hotel is clean and functional. We had a studio apartment which was more spacious than anticipated. Very quiet. Good breakfast. WiFi readily available in all parts of the hotel. Situation excellent for rail station and centre of town. The staff were friendly and most helpful.

Friendly, helpful staff, a comfortable room at an affordable price, a decent breakfast, a bar, good wifi… it isn't five star luxury but it has everything most people would want. (It's actually four or five hundred yards from the Hauptbahnhof - I got a taxi.)

Despite what the hotel says about comfort and providing air conditioning, the manager Claudia refused to turn on the hotel's air conditioning. We were extremely hot and miserable and got only two to three hours of sleep. They have terrible customer service.

A typical Ibis hotel, clean and functional. The staff are friendly and the rooms reasonably sized. Breakfast was ok but could do with hot food other than just scramble eggs. No restaurant in the hotel but there are several within 5 minutes walk.
