We stayed 2 nights during a tour of Germany. Very helpful and friendly reception. Room was comfortable but we found the bathroom rather strange. It had a small shower and small bath instead of one bigger shower which we would have preferred. Separate toilet which was a slight nuisance. No doubt some people prefer that. But we would stay there again. Good parking arrangement, 14 euros per day at the parking under the hotel. It is public but the hotel has a special deal and a lift into the hotel lobby.

Very central and in easy walking distance to most attractions. The rooms are clean and modern and the toilet is in a separate room to the shower and bath (which is great as I have a wife and two girls!). The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is well priced and the resturant is quite good with excellent service and tasty food. The roast beef is actually what we would call a steak and was really good.

Over many years this hotel has maintained a very high quality, combined with a great service. It makes for my favorite hotel in Aachen.

The hotel staff is very friendly and always willing to help.

The room I had was clean, and spacious. The bed was comfortable, although the pillows were a bit too sturdy for me to really like them, but that is very personal of course. A very nice feature of these rooms is that you can open the windows to let some fresh air in.

The room has a safe and it is big enough to fit my 15" laptop, plus some other valuables. There is also a mini-bar, plus a water boiler with complimentary coffee and tea.

The bathroom is clean and functional, but small. There is a bath tub, but I prefer the shower and that is pretty small.

The breakfast buffet is superb. It offers a very wide choice with warm and cold items, all fresh and of a very high quality. There are also several excellent choices for your bread and also all fresh. I can definitely recommend to include this breakfast in your arrangement.

There are two things I didn't like though. The towels are not comfortable at all and feel too much like sandpaper on your skin. This has been my issue for some years now and it is really time to replace them.

The internet access has a good signal most of the time, but you need to revalidate your account too often. This is where I can tell that the hotel is falling behind other chains. It is just a pain to enter the username and password (both quite long sequences of digits) at least once a day, but sometimes even more often. I hope this can be improved.

Overall a very good experience however and this is my preferred hotel when I return to Aachen.

Major attractions are closer by to walk around in the evening. As all other novotels this also good if you are in Aachen for business purpose.

I liked the breakfast menu, full of variety & smiley staff.

Room Tip: Only for business purpose

This Novotel is definitely one of the better hotels in Aachen and accessing parking is fairly straightforward. The first impression was quite good, as the lobby was spacious with a small children's playing area, a computer with printer available, and a decent lobby seating area. The staffs are polite but a bit on the cold side. Fortunately the restaurant and bar staffs are friendlier during our visit. The room itself was typical Novotel's new design with the really strange decision to separate out the toilet in a separate room from the sink, bathtub and shower. It is rather unsanitary to walk all the way from the toilet to the bathroom to wash your hands. Whoever designs it should not be allowed to design hotel rooms. Novotel please change it ASAP! The bed is okay comfortable. The room has all the things you need but not exactly outstanding though. Finally the free premium WIFI was highly unstable and it would drop connections once awhile. The internet was particularly slow in the evening hours when everyone was using it after dinner. Honestly the hotel is nothing special and is just a typical Novotel experience. Novotel really needs to push itself to go further in room design, amenities and services, if it wants to catch up with other major brands.
