"Conveniently located but condition not perfect"
This hotel is perfectly located and within walking distance to most touristic spots. The staffs are nice too. But some conditions are below standard: eg. strong smell of detergent in the corridor, occasional bad smell in the toilet. The beds are a bit too soft. Noice from the traffic can sometimes be quite annoying.

"August City Break in Koln."
We stayed at the Senats for 3 nights in August 2013, a party of 4 adults. The hotel was fantastic; very helpful staff, very clean, great central location but very quiet inside the well sound-insulated rooms. We used the bar on 2 occasions and found it excellent; very comfortable environment, friendly bar staff and reasonably-priced drinks. We specifically wanted a hotel with breakfast included which is one of the reasons we booked the Senats and it didn't disappoint. A typical buffet with a wide variety of choices; pastries, cereals, breads, meats, cheeses, yoghurts, fresh fruit plus coffee, teas etc. Excellent breakfast with very efficient staff which set us up for the day ahead. The reception staff were very good and allowed us to leave our baggage there once we had checked out and they also let us have our rooms slightly earlier than the stated earliest check-in time. Great hotel, highly recommended.

Complimentary drink on arrival was welcome. The room [like many in Europe] lacked airconditioning - meaning that one had to choose between being hot or opening the window and having traffic noise.

Top location. 2 mins from everywhere. Station, Old Town, Shop, waterfront and the Magnificent Dom. Clean but perhaps dated hotel. Fantastic welcoming staff. Great breakfasts cooked to order. Special mention to Anya. Took a shine to our young son. Fantastic, warm, friendly waitress who speaks perfect English. Would definately stay there again. You really cant go wrong with this hotel.

Good staff and good proximity to the Cathedral and the train station (5 minute walk) but the place is quite tired and in need of an upgrade. No facilities in the room to make a hot drink - had to go out and down the street to get one. Good breakfast. Would recommend overall for a night if passing through due to it's handy location

"Comfort and convenience on a budget"
I had a single room at a sale rate of about $90/night, which is great value for money for a comfortable, central place in a big city. Hotel is a five minute walk or less from the main train station and the cathedral, likewise to the main shopping area. Room wasn't quite deluxe, but very clean, plenty of room, and had a nice little fridge with free water and Coke. I was on the street side but it was quiet all night. Breakfast was included and very good standard German buffet style (coffee, yogurt, muesli, cheese, coldcuts, bread and pastries - I think you can get tea and eggs on request). WARNING: They claim to have free wifi, but this is only for one hour of use and the connection quality was so bad it was effectively useless. The connection dropped every time I tried to send a message. Very frustrating. I would have tried to sort it out with the front desk staff (who were very pleasant and helpful) but I was so jet-lagged I couldn't be bothered. Other than the internet issue, I highly recommend the place for anyone who's looking for somewhere central without blowing a ton of money.

"Couldn't find anything to complain about"
Recommended. Stayed here May 2013 with my wife and teenage son at an excellent rate for two rooms. The hotel is less than five minutes walk from the Hauptbahnhof, literally walk round the Dom, then a hundred metres down a side street - easy to do even with the luggage that we were carrying for a week long German tour -- and my wife doesn't travel light! The rooms are modern and minimalistic by design but this doesn't mean they lack all the usual comforts. The room was extremely spacious indeed for a city centre hotel. I paid for breakfast included, and this included cooked eggs and bacon at no extra cost. Add to this a nice little bar and friendly staff and it all made for an easy and comfortable couple of days in Cologne.

"Good value for the money"
Hotel was good if different in the aesthetic sense ( The bedroom doors are hinged on the outside and look a bit hostel like). I was having this break with my son and consequently ordered a two bed room which the hotel felt they could interpret as a double bed which would not have been satisfactory. Staff were however helpful in sorting out the problem which they blamed on Expedia. I must say the expression "Twin Room" was not shown on Expedia but we could and did select a "two bed" room. Otherwise it was everything we expected and was well placed for both the City Centre and, importantly for us, the railway station

"walking instruction"
Without proper walking instruction, we walked around 30 minutes to find the hotel. We didn't know we have to pass thru the cathedral to get to the hotel. We found out that it only took 5 minutes walk from hotel to train station. It's good that these kind of walking instructions should specify it on the hotel information.

Location, location, location - hotel in amazing spot 5 min walk from train main station/s/u-bahn, 3 mins from Dom & main shops, 2 mins to edge of old town, 5 mins to riverside. We had a triple room/suite that was huge - handy dividing curtain to separate beds & a lounge area - so ideal for families. Bathroom large but a dated. Photos make rooms look quite modern - but the space & location made up for any negatives. Lovely breakfast room & plenty of choice. Reception staff very pleasant. Small bar in hotel too which was a bonus too.

"'Great Hotel for visiting the Heart of Cologne'"
From arriving in the hotel car park and being met by a very welcoming and helpful member of staff to the day we checked out - we had a wonderful stay. This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel for the Christmas Markets and we weren't let down. Perfectly situated for the Markets, extremely close to the Cathedral, car parking place on site, helpful and friendly staff, good sized rooms - marvellous! Also the buffet breakfast was great and with complimentary drinks in your room - they really make an effort. Since our last visit, they have added a new bar on the first floor which was really nice. Was slightly worried that as we were so impressed from our last visit - that it wouldn't live up to our high expectations, but it totally did. Looking forward to our next visit!

"One of the Best Koln Centre Locations."
Brilliant position, right in centre of town. No need for car nor even the use of bus/tram. Parking is plentiful but on average €14.50 for 24 hrs. Internet connection is really quite expensive €8 for 1hr. so take your own dongle. Overall, our best stay in Koln. Have been several times but this was just SO convenient. Breakfast was wide ranging in choice, some hot items but plenty of 'real' German meats and cheese etc.All beautifully prepared in a pleasant breakfast room.

"1950's City Centre Hotel"
This Hotel is centrally located and in a relatively quiet area of the city centre. However, it is somewhat dated and looks like a throw back from the 1950's (which it is). The room that we stayed in was spacious and comfortable and breakfast was good. The bar are was very pleasant, albeit compact. The staff were generally good although my request for parking went unheeded and even though there were spaces, I was still refused access.

Senats Hotel is close to the Dom and convenient for most things. The staff made up for the slightly dated hotel. Contrary to the description there is no airport shuttle but the 15 minute train to Koln Hbf is frequent and easy and only €3 each. !0 minute walk to the hotel. Taxi back (It was pouring with rain) was €26. Dom is magnificent and the chocolate factory well worth a visit as was the adjacent Chocolat Cafe (!). Plenty of other great restaurants at reasonable prices and good quality. Will go again and stay at the Senats Hotel

Hotel is in a fantastic location, being very close to the Cathedral, the main railway station and shopping streets. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly and spoke good English. Our room was very clean but basic and a bit dull and boring. There was no in room safe which was rather inconvenient but there was a safe behind reception. Bathroom was tiny and very tired. Disappointing. But, we didn't spend much time in the room so we were prepared to overlook these things. As the location was so good, we'd definitely go back there.

Die Zimmer sind zweckmäßig eingerichtet, das wlan ist entgegen früherer Bewertungen während des ganzen Aufenthalts kostenlos und die Minibar ist am ersten Tag gratis (nur alkoholfreie Getränke).
