“It's an okay hotel; good for a 2-star”
Reviewed 16 December 2010

This is an okay 2-star hotel. While it is quite near the Aachen hauptbahnhof, the train station doesn't attract the normal seediness associated with most main train stations. Check in was easy at the next-door Bahnhof Hotel (there is a sign in the door in multiple languages telling you to go to the Bahnhof Hotel). Street parking was available directly in front of the hotel. The reception clerk told us the polizei finished their parking ticket rounds at 1900 so we didn't have to worry about the fact that the parkschein automat (parking ticket machine) only allowed 2 hrs max time. The room turned out to be a triple. I don't know if it's larger than standard doubles (we were in #32 on the 3rd floor). The room was clean, large enough, good closet space, small TV (who cares?), a desk and chair, and a decent sized 70s looking bathroom that was clean. You know, the avocado green and brown tiles? The hot water in the shower wasn't hot enough -- it was lukewarm but not cool enough to get out of the shower screaming. Breakfast was pretty good. Breads, cheeses, sliced meats, some cereals, and fruits. The coffee was good and strong. Euro 57 for a double in Aachen on the weekend during their Weihnachts markt was a good deal.

Reviewed 23 September 2010

The location is very convenient, right across from the main train station. There are quite a few restaurants within short walking distance, and major tourist attractions such as the Dom (cathedral) and historic city hall are a 10 minute walk.

The rooms are small and plain, but with new fixtures and very clean. The bed was comfortable, and there are adequate lights and electric outlets. The bathroom was very clean and the show worked well. There was plenty of hot water. The supply of bed linens, blankets, pillows and towels was adequate.

Check-in is at the nearby Hotel Bahnhof, and he sign on the front of this hotel says "Hotel Garni" and not Hotel Stadtnah! I was always able to find staff at one of the two hotels when I needed someone.

This hotel can be noisy! The stairs are stone and the doors wood, and you can clearly hear other guests coming and going up and down the stairs and opening and shutting their doors. The walls are thick though so I never really heard any sounds from adjacent rooms. I had a room at the back, and almost every morning a circular saw started up at 6:30 am in the back Three of the 5 nights I was there (not weekend nights) there were loud parties somewhere in the back and I had to shut the window to get to sleep.

The WiFi costs four euro per day and only works about half the time. When it does work it is limited to about 15kb/s (slower than most dial-up!). The person at the desk in the evening knew nothing about it and would not refund my money. As a side note, if you have access to the RWTH university WiFi it works in many parts of Aachen including the square in front of the hotel.

Breakfast was OK. They had fresh and canned fruit, a variety of breads and pastries, cold cuts, hard boiled eggs, cold cereals and milk, juice and yogurt. Breakfast started at 7am.
