Great and family friendly reception

Anbu Families - 02/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Central location in Aachen, very much family friendly, i was there one day before my birthday with my family and friend, we booked two rooms they where kind enough to allocate us room next to each other with internal door which was great, the receptionist realised that it was my birthday next day and congratulated me, breakfast was great and free for kids. overall if you travel with family you i would highly recommend to consider this hotel.

Dear Mr. S., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Aachen City. You are very welcome anytime with your family, not only on your birthday ;) Sincerely, Saskia Küppers Front Office Agent h3… T. +4… F. +4…

I had no issues with the hotel, they were professional but hotel needs renovation. My room stinked. Literally. I am thinking that the stink came from the carpets. Also I would suggest to add closed cabinet (at least one) as the room did not have it.

Excellent Service

Kevin L. Business - 03/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Everything was excellent. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. The food was delicious. The property was kept in great condition. We were having a large meeting in the conference facilities, and all of the equipment worked perfectly and the food/snacks were great too. A few minor notes for improvement: - The rooms are a bit small and do not have many amenities. The bathroom is especially tight, and is made to seem smaller by the fact that the toilet is in an entirely different room than the shower/sink/tub. There is not much that can be done about the room size/layout, but if you intend to make any major capital improvements, doing things like making the shower larger and removing the tubs may be a good start. Mounting the TVs on the walls and removing some furniture could also make the space seem larger. - The rooms need more electrical outlets. People are traveling with laptops, cell phones, smart watches, iPads, etc., and all of those things need to be charged. There was only one reasonably accessible outlet in the room (next to the bed). There were no outlets near the desk (other than behind the TV). There was one next to the minibar, but no where near there to do work or charge devices. - There are very few options on the TV in English language (really only news and business networks). This is not abnormal for hotels in Europe, but most have a port near the desk allowing you to plug in HDMI, or have a wireless capability to stream content from a personal device (so that guests can use Netflix, other streaming services, or content saved on their device). Not only did that capability not exist, but the HDMI port on the TV was inaccessible from the Source menu on the TV. I only take the time to make these comments because I think the things in your control are managed so well. It is a great place to stay as long as you stay in the lobby, bar, restaurant, or conference center. The in-room experience, conversely, leaves room for improvement. I hope, if you have an opportunity to renovate, you will be able to make some of these changes.

Dear Mr. L., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Aachen City. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. As you noticed, we did a lot of refurbishment in the last years and there will be new projects this year, too. On the medium-term there (hopefully) will be a full renovation of our bathrooms and our hotel rooms. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Kevin Frankiewicz Front Office Manager h3… T. +4… F. +4…

Very good location , you are in the city center, on foot, in about 5 minutes. Hotel has all services you need, is spacy and has friendly staff. Breakfast with lots of choice. The view is not spectacular, but what can you expect at a city center hotel.

As expected

Roger L. Business - 25/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff is nice and welcoming making for a pleasant stay. I would like to make two suggestions, as a recurring customer: - The quality of the coffee should be improved. Even the specialty coffee is even worst. - I travel regularly for business. All other hotels in the world, including in Germany, have an iron and ironing board in the rooms. I do not understand why the Novotel Aachen city can not do the same. I'm usually given a room on the second floor. This somewhat mitigates the issue but is still an annoyance to have to get out of the room. Please equip your rooms with an iron and ironing board.

Dear Mr. L., Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stays in Aachen. Due to bad experience with irons in the rooms, we do offer an iron room in our property. I made a note in your profile, that a room on the second floor will be given to you upon availability. As we are not satisfied with the quality of the coffee neither, our Restaurant Manager is already in contact with the producer of the coffee machines to find a solution for a better quality. Thank you again for sharing your experience and we look forward to your next stay with us. Sincerely, Kevin Frankiewicz Front Office Manager h3… T. +4… F. +4…

Paula B. Families - 03/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed the hotel, very nice staff and room. Breakfast was expensive €19 each but the food was good. Dinner was ok, could have done with a bigger choice on the menu. Our room was fine but missing mirrors. The only mirrors are in the bathroom. Also very limited hanging space and hooks for a coat etc. There is public car parking below the hotel, be careful if you have a roof box you probably won’t get under the barrier. Parking is €14 a night, would have been good to have this included in the stay for superior bookings. On check out I asked for a detailed statement, good job because we were overcharged on numerous items! We were in a superior room so don’t have to pay room service. We were charged. My sons meal we ordered on room service came with the wrong drink, I phoned and a waitress came to change it. We were charged for the drink and charged room service again. Our one meal in the restaurant we were overcharged instead of the meal being 3 courses, we were charged for each individual course. I’m glad I checked!

Good stay overall, but there are a number of details that need improvement

Roel Families - 30/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

First things first: the hotel team is kind and smiling, and makes you feel at home. In fact, that was my overall experience not only in the hotel, but throughout this lovely town. Aachen is definitely worth a visit! As also mentioned by other commenters: the breakfast buffet is particularly good and elaborate, and the fitness room is really well equipped compared to other Novotels. The devil, though, is in the details: no bread was offered when we had lunch - yet, the wait was really too long: we waited almost an hour (!) before we were served, while it was around 14h00 and almost no other customers were present. The food is also of good quality, yet some details are a bit "off": the quiche, for instance, is good, but is a mere omelette rather than a quiche; and making "mozzarella caprese" with brie cheese and rucola instead of mozzarella and basil, is almost like a sacrilege. Our initial check-in was not handled very professionally: no recognition of Platinum status, received a 24h voucher for WIFI while we were staying for 2 nights, no detailed explanation about services etc. Afterwards we did receive a drink voucher, but then it was still only for 3 drinks for 5 people. Also, it was clearly mentioned at the initial check-in that we were one family travelling with two rooms, but we got separate room keys (2 per room). Yet, later it turned out that it is easy (was proposed by a hotel worker himself) to make keys "universal" for both rooms if they know it is for one family. So why was this not offered from the start? Keycards were only active until 12h00 at day of checkout while we did ask for late checkout, so we had to have the rem-activated (for both rooms). I also noticed later that a late checkout was invoiced at 30 EUR, despite my Platinum status AND my booking this online "for free". The hotel team has been very responsive in arranging for reimbursement though (yet to be received). All in all: definitely a good stay; their are some very slight "loose ends", which seem to be very easy to correct, so I look forward to a new stay in this hotel.

Very good family hotel

As always, we loved the warm and heartfelt welcome. Not only the great crew at reception but all teams again made us feel very much at home. It was great to see how everyone worked together to get all the work done in this busy period, and always with a smile. And last but not least, thank you very much for the very comfortable upgrade.
