The Senats is a curiosity - a hotel at the leading edge of design, in 1953, which has largely escaped remodelling or renovation. The rooms are much larger than average, though furniture can be a little tired. The listing says the hotel has no parking - but the moment you walk around the area you start falling over enormous underground... More

It is a fairly old building with rooms meeting basic requirements but not more than that. Rooms are functional but nothing luxurious. Needs refurbishment.Elevator is activated with a key, so there are no buttons for floors but there s an activation hole to turn on with a key. Breakfast was satisfactory and hall was nice. Most of all, what makes... More

Good, albeit tired hotel in a bit of a 60's timewarp in a great location. The room was large with a very small en-suite (no bath) and functional. No kettle, one bedside light not working which was reported to reception 10 minutes after checking in and wasn't fixed. Breakfast was very good. I've stayed in a number of hotels in... More

Great reception staff and location so close to station, Cathedral, 3 Xmas markets perfect. The room was perfectly adequate for a short stay but the major disappointment was breakfast. Very, very poor quality and quantity (one had to ask repeatedly for replenishment of various bowls); also, the (overworked) staff did not take kindly to you appearing at 9.45 even tho... More

As a world traveller, i was deeply disappointed by this hotel. Other than a great location and good breakfast, the room was very dirty, all heating and the TV unplugged, the temperature very low and the lady in charge of the breakfast rude. Not worth the money or the good reviews.

This was a good location, good hotel with great staff, especially at the front desk. We took the junior suite which was perfect for a family of three though we were on the street side and it could get a bit noisy. They also had a fantastic breakfast selection though you have to go offsite for all other food. We... More

First class location and excellent breakfast with super friendly staff. Only disappointed by no on site bar or restaurant although the hotel is surrounded by bars. The rooms are spacious but the hotel is a bit 'tired' When I return I however would re visit

I stayed at this hotel for the Cologne marathon. It is a perfect location for exploring the city as it is very central and only minutes away from the marathon finish area. They serve breakfast from 06:30 am so you get plenty of time to have a good breakfast before the start of the marathon at 10:00 am Hotels good... More
