“Better than many budget hotels”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

1st night I noticed a couple of hairs in the bed. The shower (which is actually in the room) smelled odd (fishy). The towels are well worn. No toiletries or appliances. Had a double bed, but only a small duvet (not covering the whole mattress).

THE GOOD: Cheap, comfy beds, easy to check in/out, quiet, plenty of plug sockets.

Reception open specific hours - and no luggage lockers. Hotel can store if the hours of reception opening are convenient for you. (If not, for 3-4 euros, the train station is a good bet.)

Great if you don't need a luxury hotel.

I didn't try the breakfast.

There's no bar/restaurant - but there's a couple of vending machines.

This hotel was newly opened and fantastic, perfect for a city break and welcomed us after a long day at the freezing but beautiful Christmas market. We designed rooms with a very comfy double bed and a unique extra bunk bed should you be travelling with a child or a girls weekend away. Loved the shower is like being in a capsule with a multi colour shower head that lights up any morning. Location excellent for anything in Aachen perfect!

Reviewed 8 January 2013

This was our first experience of the Ibis Budget chain - bottom line is that we will look to use this budget line of hotels again. With 2 x adults and 3 x children travelling it is difficult to find one room within a reasonable price. This hotel provided two room (2 + 3). If you are happy yo split the family group then this arrangement is fine. Free wi-fi throughout which was great; exceptionally clean and tidy and excellent bedding. Security is good and although there is no free parking, €7 for 24hr parking directly underneath is very reasonable. Easy 10min stroll through shopping area to the Aachen Cathedral. Staff very efficient and we could not really ask for more given we only paid €74 in total for two rooms. We did not have the breakfast however the dining area looked very clean, ordered and offering reasonable continental spread.

Reviewed 16 December 2012

The hotel is located close to the old town and the shopping streets. Connected there is an underground car park for 7 Euros per 24 hours. The check in is very easy and in the whole hotel you have free WiFi. The rooms are equpped with television.

The hotel definitely lacks charme. As soon as you walk in one has the impression of entering an hospital. This gets worse as you enter the room: no atmosphere, very blank, curtains made of plastic (in hospital green). Over the king size bed there is a third bed (bunk bed style).

Next time I'll definitely pay 10 Euros more for another hotel or try a guesthouse.
