Aachen: the city that used to be on everyone’s lips! In years gone by, Aachen was the place to be, where countless German kings were crowned and Charlemagne had his residence. But the city – and our Motel One Aachen – is particularly worth a visit in the present day, too.
When you step into our lobby, your eye will be drawn to its regal touches and a veritable king’s ransom in gold details. Its fixtures and fittings are heavily inspired by elements in Aachen Cathedral, turning our Motel One into a little kingdom of its own. Take a look inside!
...the world of kings and queens. Our reception desk makes sure all our guests receive a golden welcome, in the literal sense of the word. The front mimics the shape of the parapet at the Charlemagne-era Aachen Cathedral, while the wall behind it pays tribute to this sacred building, too, featuring the outline of the cathedral itself. Alongside this, it also bears the various names for Aachen, written in brass and playing on the city’s significant location in the border triangle.
Our grounds might not be palatial in size – but their stunning appearance and cosy feel more than make up for it. It’s the perfect place to relax, drink in hand, once you come back from exploring the city.
