“Reasonably priced, great location.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Stayed for one night as a female solo traveller.

This is more a large bed and breakfast than a hotel. Security is very good, with the door always on the latch and only accessible by ringing the bell or with a key. Non-residents are not allowed to go beyond reception, whether accompanied by a paying guest or not (as one of my friends found).

Therefore it's quiet - no drunken stag- or hen-do's or groups wandering round the place looking for each other. Ideal place to stay for solo travellers, business people, families, couples on a romantic break, or people there for shopping, theatre, concert etc. Do not stay here if looking to have a wild, drunk, raunchy weekend.

The staff are lovely, and I find some of the reviews very harsh that they seem rude. They are just down-to-earth no-nonsense Scousers, which may come across as abrupt and rude to people not used to them. However, I'm pretty sure they'd stand on their heads whistling a tune if they thought it would make your stay better.

My room was a twin room with small bathroom, but everything you need in a room is there - iron and ironing board, desk with mirror and plugs for laptop, hair straighteners etc handy, plenty of drawers and hangers on the rail, hospitality tray, television and wifi (which worked very well). The bathroom had a shower, toilet and washbasin.

Everything was spotlessly clean. Some of the decor is dated, but not suffering from obvious wear and tear.

The breakfast was absolutely great! Nicely cooked, and from what I could gather also plenty of continental options available.

Of course there is going to be noise - the hotel is in the heart of a vibrant city surrounded by main roads, and in the university-district to boot. It's also a listed old building, therefore there are creaking floors and stairs and the walls not thick. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs, but I had a sound night's sleep.

This is not your built-for-purpose hotel like Travelodges but a former residence and listed, restricted to alteration laws. Therefore your rooms are not going to be a perfect size or shape, with straight floors and walls. But I felt this added character to the place.

Location is great - near the centre, easy to walk (with small trolley-case) from Lime Street. I just walked everywhere as it was easy.

As I have friends in/around Liverpool, I like to bring friends back for a brew and that, or just watching some movies etc, but hadn't realised this wasn't possible at the Aachen when booking. I just arranged to meet them elsewhere, but it would be my reason for not staying again.

But this is personal choice and I cannot fault this hotel on anything!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, or bring ear plugs.

I loved the atmosphere and friendly staff here. As others have commented, the breakfasts were great and they bent over backwards to help whenever asked for something. I requested a quiet room and they put me near the back which was really good but I'm not convinced any rooms would have been 'noisy'.

The only down side was a broken edge to the desk that was fixed as soon as I reported it (great service) and rugs that didn't look very clean - but they were beige and that 's going to look a bit grimy even if they are new. I would have preferred bare floors and kept kicking them under the bed which worked fine. I would heartily recommend this hotel.

We stayed here as a family of 3 (husband, wife, teenager) over a long weekend (3 nights) for a tech conference at a venue just round the corner from here. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The rooms had telephone, TV, free WIFI, tea/coffee facilities, hairdryer, iron etc so it was like being home from home. Check in was easy, we were shown our room and breakfast times were explained. Breakfast was lovely and catered for all tastes - you got to choose from a selection of toast, pastries, cereal, yoghurts, fruit etc before tucking into a full English breakfast if you chose to. The hotel waiting and reception staff are friendly and helpful. We didn't see the cleaning staff in person, but wow, they left the room looking like new every day - beds made pristinely and bathroom cleaned spotlessly. All in all we have had a very enjoyable stay and we would return here again. We would also recommend this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are on a main road which can sometimes get noisy with cars and revel...

Booked into this hotel because I was attending a conference at the university. It is well located, 10 minutes walk (uphill) from Lime street station, close to university, Metropolitan cathedral, restaurants/cafes, take away, supermarket, and if you take the back streets route after 12 minutes walk you would be at Albert Dock. took the city explorer sight seeing bus great value, with a live commentary.well worth it to discover the gems of Liverpool. Staff at Aachen are sooo friendly and helpful, I would like to thank Linda who was particularly helpful and nothing is too much bother. On our last day we left our bags while we attended the conference and came back after it finished.

Room Tip: people with mobility problems might find walking uphill on mount pleasant a bit challenging, also th...

Booked via booking.com a couple of months before the trip and thought it would be a big, old and rusty place. Turned out to be a very welcoming hotel, quite charming indeed, with great value and only a few minutes from Liverpool Lime Street Station. Really recommend it, two thumbs up!!
