I went sightseeing to the three country border points in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium, and I have traveled to Aachen, a small ancient city in Germany. "Novotel Aachen City" is a hotel that I stayed in this time, and it is in a convenient place that you can walk to the center of Aachen. When the Christmas season comes, a big Christmas market is held in the open space and it gets more lively, but compact old capital in other seasons is popular because it is easy to walk to. I will introduce the hotel we have stayed in, and the relaxing travel that we experienced and the sightseeing spots we went to.
What is the exterior of the hotel? Check entrance and reception
This is the exterior of the hotel.
The entrance is an automatic glass door and it is a staircase, but there is also a slope.
Three front desks are lined up.
The lobby is also large.
There was a little playground for children with picture books and coloring books.
There were gifts for children that were pretty hand glue stuffed animals, and the children were pleased. On the tag, it is written as Family & Novotel.
After traveling through the corridor on the carpeted floor we got to our room.
The room we stayed in is a standard room.
One king size bed
The sofa turned into an extra bed.
This is what it looks like as a sofa.
There is also a movable working desk and a TV.
There is a door with the entrance facing the bedroom side in the bathroom.
It is a double door. The mirror in the sink is also big.
The shower booth is separate.
It was a bathtub on the other side, making it easy to use.
The sink is wide and easy to use. The faucet was attached on the wall and the water came out from the side.
A dryer with enough wind pressure was also installed.
Bath amenities were only shampoo and body soap and hand soap. You should prepare other things that you need on your own.
The toilet was next to the entrance door in a private room.
There is a cafe corner. There were electric kettles, cups, glasses and instant teas.
There were many drinks in the refrigerator.
Closet and safety box
There was a closet beside at entrance. It did not have a door, but it's enough to hang coats. There was also a shelf.
The safety box was under the refrigerator.
The view from the room
Although our room was on the 2nd floor, there was nothing to block the outside view, so we were able to see far away.
There was nothing really interesting to see, but there was a feeling of openness.
Breakfast restaurant and bar
The restaurant and bar at the hotel is in front of the reception.
They also have a buffet style breakfast.
The dishes arranged in a corner of the restaurant were all in the menu of common breakfast such as bread, cereal, ham, cheese, and fruit.
The chef also came to check the food regularly, and food was arranged.
There was a fitness gym on the top floor of the hotel. Shower room and bath towels were also provided.
There is a business center with only one computer, and a copy machine.
Staff & Customers
The staffs were very friendly. As soon as the staffs knew we had children with us, they gave them a cute stuffed animal which was very nice, and very good service. There were many families staying at this hotel.
Because we were able to drive a car, it was good that the hotel had parking. There was a major bus station near the hotel.
Walking around the streets of Aachen from the hotel
The shops are lined up in front of the hotel.
When I walked about 5 minutes I went to shopping district where it was crowded with people. It was also a weekend and there were lots of people.
One of the tourist attractions is the spring of Elise.
I was able to enter for free, but it smelled like sulfur. Hot spring came out from the faucet, but it was not the hot spring that I was imagining.
The outside wall of the stained glass is wonderful, so please see Aachen Cathedral the from inside.
Market square where the Christmas market is held during Christmas season, and it is very crowded. Restaurants are also lined up so you can enjoy eating out.
My family and I often stay in Novotel, but I noticed that most of Novotels is unified with similar constructions. Although there are some differences, there is no doubt that the location of this hotel is good for walking and sightseeing, Aachen.
