Good Hotel a short walk from the railway station and a short walk from the city centre shops and cathedral. An excellent breakfast (extra cost). English spoken (and well). There is on and off street parking here although not used on this visit. I have stayed here before and no doubt will again.
Arrived in Aachen by train and on getting to the concourse of the station there is a big sign above the front door telling you which way to go to the hotel - bonus!. A 5 minute walk and I was at there. Check in was friendly and efficient and I was quickly booked in and told about breakfast and where the bar/restaurant was.
The room was a typical Ibis with a comfy bed, TV, some clothes storage and a reasonable sized bathroom with a good shower. Also had air con and an opening window.
Breakfast had a good selection and was buffet style so you could fill up for the day for 10 euros.
Had a few drinks in the bar which only had Bitburger lager on draught but it was well kept and reasonably priced.
All the staff I came into contact with were friendly, efficient and was nice to be able to make myself understood even though I know very little german! They certainly made the stay better.
The only down side for the stay was I was in a front facing room which was a little noisy with a main road next to it but if that bothers you ask for a room at the back.
The only thing I didn't like was when I paid the bill my credit card was charged in UK pounds without being asked - very minor!
Overall a good hotel at a very good price a short walk from the attractions Aachen has to offer - recommended
An Ibis is always a pretty safe bet when you're traveling in Europe. They are not fancy or particularly charming, but they are clean and cheap and sometimes that goes a long way.
This Ibis is in a really nice location in Aachen right across a small park from the Marschiertor - which is the big, old gate where you enter the central city. Don't confuse it with the other Ibis in town...which is probably fine too.
The rooms are small, but get the job done for a couple. And there are about 10 pastry shops in easy walking distance if you want to skip the Ibis breakfast.
Aachen is nice town too. We flew into Dusseldorf from LAX and hopped a quick train to Aachen. Pretty easily done.
