“Great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

WE had 3 rooms and loved it here.
Perfect location, small and quiet but clean and comfortable.
Rooms were large and renovated. bathroom was clean and new.

One of the best breakfasts we had in Europe, very generous and offers a great selection of hot and cold foods.

Will definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel with my family on a weekend hollidays.
The hotel is very well located and is 2 blocks from the famous Cologne Cathedral and Museum Ludwig. It is also near the river bank and its reno street full of bars and restaurants. The facilities are reasonable but the hotel is very old, although apparently they have gone indoors for reform. The staff is very friendly, and the service and breakfast.
The room is quite roomy and this is the highlight for this hotel beyond its location.

This hotel is perfectly fine and adequate. Nothing exceptional, but clean, comfortable, large enough rooms. It does excel at certain thing - great breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff. But perhaps its best aspect is that it is between the cathedral (superb) and the old town (great place, full of character down by the river Rhine); it is also very close to the railway station - for those of you not using the car. For me also the price was great - 255 euros for 2 rooms for 2 nights including breakfast seems extremely reasonable to me.

The hotel is conveniently located near the Cathedral and the central train station. Also close to restaurants, bars, coffeeshops. The breakfast was very good. Choice of eggs or cereal, meats and cheeses, yogurt and fruit.. You do have to pay for wifi which these days seems archaic. The cost was 8euro for an hour and 24 for the day. That seemed pretty steep. We went to the Starbucks nearby for free. Very friendly staff.

This hotel really surprised us. It is an old hotel, but everything was clean and neat. Real value for money considering that this hotel is close to the train station as well as the old town. The breakfast was also excellent.

Senats Hotel is located close to the famous cathedral and the restaurant district in the old town. The main shopping street is also very close. The main train station is a 5 minute walk away.
If you like the style and ambiance of the early sixties you will be happy. Others might complain about a slow elevator, a half-submerged breakfast room, expensive Wifi and the noise of the street traffic.

I quite enjoyed my few days stay here at Senats Hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, location is great (right near the Dom and within striking distance of everything on foot). Breakfasts were great. No wifi however. Nice to be unconnected for a few days though. Rooms were clean and comfy. I would stay there again.
