I went for a 3 day break to Aachen City , but wanted a hotel and staff I could rely on ...
The area is fine and there are main bars and Restaurants , and the shops are Very close , like all City areas , keep to the main roads and streets , don't go up small side roads late at night ...unless you are with a friend or two.
There are lifts in the hotel, and there is a bar which keeps open , as in Germany as long as customers want it to...The night porter will always let you in if you've just returned from a party at 2am in the morning .
Very Clean and tidy .... Breakfast is 16 euros .... but so are many of the main hotels breakfast bars
Above all a Very Nice Place to Go ..
