"Nice experience"
The receptionist was very nice, and he let us check-in earlier than the regular time. He also told us about free minibar in the room. Later when I asked him about a decent restaurant around, he described several options on a map and suggested us to go to Altstadt where most restaurants are located. Free Wi-Fi in the room was a plus. Complementary breakfast was better than what I expected. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and we'd definitely stay again.

"Hotel of the fifties"
If you want to feel like in fifties then it is a hotel for you. It's a bit renovated, but still outdated. It's an experience to use elevator (it's at least 60 years old) ;)

"Great Hotel and Superb Location."
We selected this hotel due its close location to the Dom Cathedral and the Train station. The staff was excellent, and served us extremely well. The rooms were simple but nicely cleaned. The downside was the lack of A/C but the hotel does provide a fan for each room. They also provided us free chilled drinks in the refrigerator. The breakfast was incredible and included in our fee as well as wifi. The Hotel is also just 4 blocks to the Rhein River, the restaurants and the Chocolate Museum.

"Reasonable rate, but noisy neighborhood"
Good location, just in the middle of train station and cable car station. Close to main shopping area, and super market nearby. The only big problem is about the neighborhood, there is a bar or pub just opposite the hotel. And they start some unbearable noise at midnight till 04:00 or 05:00 am. Even hotel provides earplug, but my children wake up several times at night. Don't understand how can the city government allow this noise existed in this beautiful place. Service is good, price is reasonable, but Wi-Fi charge 3.5 euro and no free breakfast. Not recommend for family with young kids.

"Bad Wifi Policy"
I stayed here for business. They advertise free WiFi but it is only for 1 hour per day! No chance to buy more time according to the staff. So if it's the year 1998 and you don't need internet for any reason for more than an hour each day in your world this hotel is ok. Otherwise stay somewhere else where it's modern day and internet is accessible.

"Pleasant, Excellent Location but a little dated"
I really liked this hotel: I like being close to the Station, Cathedral, shopping and restaurants ( was fortunate to visit during the Christmas Markets ( gloriously fun ). The hotel was comfy and the room and bath very nice. However, it is a little dated ( mostly in worn carpet, older furnishings here and there ( public spaces ) actually felt a little "retro" which I kind of like. But for some it might not meet expectations - I also thought the price was EXCELLENT - for which I am happy to overlook some flaws. Front desk staff kind and very helpful.

"Close to Attractions!"
The staff at the Senats hotel were all lovely, helpful people. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the water and soda provided in the room were a nice treat after a day of sightseeing. Literally a few minutes walk from the Dom, the river, and shopping district, this hotel is very nicely located. I had a single room. The bed as small, as expected; however, the room was spacious and clean. The only minor gripe I had was with the triple key system for accessing the elevator or doorways; however, it is a small gripe in an overall positive stay.

"Nice hotel, convenient location"
I stayed one night at this hotel. The staff was friendly and the room was nice and clean. However, the hotel can use some updates. For instance the door key was an actual key on a large key ring. The room was clean, although the furniture was a bit worn. It was a good value for the price though, as it is close to shopping and restaurants.

"Convenient to the Cathedral and the train station"
I only stayed one night at the Senats Hotel but it was very adequate for what I needed, that was closeness to station and Dom and easy to find at night (with only one query). It was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was particularly sparkling. The next morning I had breakfast in the lovely breakfast room and was pleased to have not only a lovely buffet but also made to order scrambled eggs. I would highly recommend this to other travelers - those coming to Koeln by train in particular.

"Decent hotel in fantastic location"
While this is an older hotel that has been updated, it is clear that the management has chosen to focus its updates in the areas that matter most to the casual traveler. It's greatest amenity is close proximity to the Altstadt and city center. I would recommend this hotel without concern.

OK hotel in the center of the city. Not a 4-star hotel. Old furniture, old carpets-not cleaned for some time, no air conditioning, small-old, not renovated elevator, no magnetic room keys. The minibar included contains only a couple of small bottles of water and a couple of soft drinks. Good breakfast, included.

"Hotel in prime location"
Situated in the heartbeat of the downtown, this hotel really is great.. The interior is very simple and clean. The breakfast with cooked omelet was great. I had a 6 am depature and they were so kind to give me a packed lunch that saved the day! The staff is incredible and deserve the highest rating for excellence in care and friendliness. Free 24 hour Internet card worked good. I was given a fan and that was really helpful in the heat of summer. The TV was needing an update, but that did not matter to me so much as I was too busy in the wonderful city of Cologne and its surroundings. thank you Senats Hotel.

"Good hotel near cathedral in Cologne."
Stayed here based on proximity to the old town district, cathedral and mostly yhe location of the music festival we were in town to see. The building is from 1959, the decor is from the early 1990s. We had a room on the 2nd floor directly above the main entrance. It was hot the weekend we were there. If we opened the window to let in air, it was loud and the reek of cigarettes was noticable from all of the smokers standing outside the entrance. Not a bad hotel. Great staff. Would likely stay somewhere else on my next visit.

"Ok hotel but very good location for markets"
Trip to the Christmas markets. Very good location, Central for the major markets. Hotel is fine, a little shabby but generally ok. Had an executive suite, which is still just a bed and a couple of chairs in a really big space. Complimentary mini bar and breakfast was good though. Nice staff, though despite booking a twin we got a double (two single beds in a frame) that couldn't be split but since it was only for one night it wasn't a major problem

"Great Location, very basic"
The location of this hotel cannot be beaten, just a few steps away before you are in the shadow of the huge cathedral which towers over Cologne - great for the train station which takes you straight to Koelnmesse in one stop and on the doorstep of many shops & restaurants. The hotel service was good once it arrived, although with only one person normally on duty you were sometimes left waiting for them to be available on the front desk. Also listed as Free Wifi - this was one hour per day of pretty poor wifi - not free for business users

"Great base in Cologne"
This is the second time we've stayed at the Senats Hotel when attending Gamescom in Cologne. Its location is absolutely perfect, just a short walk from the cathedral - easy access to the cathedral, shops and restaurants, station, and only a 20 minute walk across to the Koeln Messe/Deutz where Gamescom and other events are held. The staff are incredibly helpful and polite, couldn't do more for you. The minibar, stocked with coke, diet coke and various kinds of water, is free. We will continue to stay at this hotel for every visit to Cologne.

Senats hotel is centrally situated within minutes of the Cathedral, Alter Markt, Heumarkt and riverside. It is also within a 10 minute walk to the Hauptbahnhof (central railway station) and the shopping district of Hohe Strasse, Schilder Gasse and Neumarkt. The staff are very friendly and efficient and will happily cook a breakfast at your request if the Continental breakfast of meats, cheeses and preserves is not to your liking. Although dated the hotel is still comfortable, although we were disappointed to find that the bar is no longer open.
