Reviewed August 7, 2013

Having stopped in Cologne a number of times before we know how noisy it is and spent a lot of time trying to find a central hotel that was quiet.

The Senats is fantastically placed for the railway, cathedrals, shopping and old town; you can walk anywhere. The location was very quiet for traffic, pubs etc but you are not going to get away from the bells!

The hotel was clean and our rooms very nice. The hotel is not new but the fixtures and fittings are contemporary.

The breakfast was a real bonus and offered a very good selection of hot and continental food.

Staff throughout were very friendly and polite.

The weather for our trip was very hot, air con would have been nice but I think the weather was exceptional.

Only down side is bar is not well used, but you have all the pubs and restaurants you want in a very short radius anyway.

We would stop again and recommend.

I arrived late at night, after one of the hottest days of the year, and the room was like an oven. Leaving the window open resulted in a lot of traffic noise, and the sound of drunken yobs shouting and screaming until the early hours.

On the plus side, its within easy walking distance of the railway station, though the route via the unfashionable end of the cathedral is not to be recommended late at night.

The breakfast is good, though the usual hazard for lone travellers of the staff clearing your table the minute you go for more food or drinks.

This hotel has 4 stars but I think that was valid sometime in the 80's... So in today's market I'd ranked this hotel to a 3 star maybe 3 star superior. However, it has great location, very close to the DOM and the shoping streets. CENTRAL STATION is also 5 minutes walk away so you might avoid paying a taxi from the airport about 35 euro... My recomandation is that if you get a good rate, you might choose this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the street, it might get noisy because of moderate trafik

The outside looking of this hotel is quite old and retro. The cute red chairs and white interior space. It looks clean and nice. I was pleased to stay the hotel for three nights! It is very comfortable. The elevator is old retro style with doors and key for the security reason.The bathroom is clean. It was probably built in 50's. The location of this hotel is perfect. One of the famous sightseeing place, City Hall (Rathaus) is almost across the street! The hotel is so close to the main train station (Köln hbf), Cologne cathedral (DOM) and Ludvig art museum. Famous German pubs such as Brauhaus Sion, Pfaffen-Brauerei Max Päffgen, Haxenhaus,etc. are also close to the hotel. If you love shopping the shopping arcade is one block away, and the shopping district is 3 minutes away. Perfect location with comfort and fair price!!
I love this hotel. (^_^)

As another reviewer said, this hotel is not luxurious, but it fit the bill for everything we needed. Very clean, courteous staff, wonderful breakfast was included in the very reasonable price of the room. And location couldn't have been any better. I would definitely stay here again.

Do not consider this a 3 or 4 star hotel. The rooms were neat and the beds good but the place was not luxurious at all. Breakfast was mediocre but the restaurant is pretty. Location is very good but there are other hotels nearby that I would choose next time. Need some updating. it was clean and just okay.
