“Okay except for the cockroach”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

A very healthy cockroach greeted me this morning by running over the bathroom mirror while I was brushing my teeth.. I brought it down to the reception and they didn't look very surprised or like it was a big deal.

Wifi kicks you out after a few minutes of inactivity which is painful, but not a showstopper.

Breakfast was ok, but I'm happy I didn't think about the state of the kitchen while I had it.

Had difficulty finding the small sign & if you are caught up in the Aachen traffic & one way system it's quite hard. It's even harder when directed to the pay car park via a road which was blocked with roadworks which the reception didn't know about.
The room was adequate but small. The breakfast was excellent. If you want to be near the Cathedral, Old Town & Rathaus (unbombed Aachen) then this is well located.
Not so expensive so overall a decent stay.

The hotel is ideally situated for seeing the cathedral and the old town. Despite its central location, the very good double-glazing keeps outside noise to the minimum. We had opted for a superior room with either balcony or bath. As the weather was freezing, we were fortunate to get the latter. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. There are, however, some minuses. Firstly, parking is not convenient - a very shabby multi-storey five minutes walk away was not my ideal choice. Secondly, for the price, I would have expected free wi-fi. The staff were efficient, but not overly welcoming. We didn't have breakfast, so I am unable to comment. the complimentary minibar was welcome, but hardly lavish. All in all, a pleasant one night stay and an above average city centre hotel, but with drawbacks.

The location in the very center of Aachen is optimal for visiting the city. All sights and the university are within walking distance. Despite of the location, the rooms are quiet and add to the sleep quality.

My room was carpeted. It should be cleaned more frequently in a 4 star than it was the case for my room. Apart from that the rooms are clean as one would expect.

Officially, the hotel offers Internet access, but it is a total rip off. Almost all bars and cafés near the hotel offer free Wifi and even the telecom stores next door offer cheaper 3G connections. As I expect Internet access to be a basic service in a 4 star hotel (such as having blankets on the bed) this is unacceptable.

The same goes for the breakfast. The breakfast menu was standard and offered nothing fancy. Therefore, I couldn't explain the extra price of 15€ per person, if you get pretty much the same in one of the nearby cafés for 5-10€ (you gain also better coffee).

Overall, you won't get anything fancy for the price tag. In Europe I have seen far better Hotels in the category, as well as a few worse, so I rate it in the middle.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in one of the rooms on the 6th floor at the back. The room was quite small and was next to the lift but we had no noise from that at all, but you could hear sounds from televisions from other rooms in the night. A part from that it was a very nice stay and the Staff we came in contact with were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel is centrally located and so near to everything such as shops, restaurants, bars and sights.
Both the room and the bathroom was very clean, but the bed was very very low and quite difficult to get up from + no free Wi-Fi.
But we would stay here again on our next visit to Aachen.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the hotel if possible, as the hotel is situated on a main road.

Food was good and location was great but sadly that is best I can say. Street noise in the room all night. Toilet in room had not been flushed. Wi-Fi despite costing 9€ extra failed most of the time and you can only use on device. Great place if you do not need to sleep or work.
