Great base in Cologne

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: You're allowed to leave bags behind reception before and after check-in/out! Breakfast was simple but delicious - a wide range to suit all tastes!
Location: Shopping, museums (including chocolate, beer, history etc), restaurants, zoo, cathedral, Koeln Messe/Deutz expo centre, easy transport links.
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.

Hotel is a short 2 street walk from train station and cathedral. Complementary breakfast was very good and room was large.

Close to everything and affordable

Hotel was great for location, close to everything and walking distance to all attractions and shopping. Hotel is bit older than what is pictured however the size of the room makes up for the lack of modernity.

No frills

You can't fault this hotel for comfort, location, service or anything really but it is just OK and nothing special. It is very irritating that the wifi is not fully unlimited and seems to be restricted to 1 hour per day. Wifi is an essential requirement in 2014.

Great location near the Domplatz. The hotel has seen better days but the room was nice enough for the price. Wifi was adequate. Would be happy to stay here again.

Hidden Gem

Posted Dec 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were delighted with our stay at the Senats Hotel. It was in a perfect location, in a quiet side street, just steps from the main shopping street, the Cathedral, and the Christmas markets.The room was comfortable with black out cutains, a coffee maker, and alarge bathroom with plenty ofhot water and a powerful shower.The breakfast was generous, ly bread selection, heeses, cold meats, uit and cereals. We were offereed a cooked breakfast every morning and that was delicious too.The reception staff were always helpful and spoke perfect English.I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again .

Great location!

Perfect location for Xmas markets and just 5 minutes walk to the cathedral. Hotel appeared tired and in need of decoration and updating, but the staff at the reception and in the breakfast room were pleasant and very helpful.

Good central hotel with friendly staff.

Posted Dec 13, 2013
Pros: Central location and friendly staff.
Cons: Modernisation of rooms and opening of bar.
Location: The bars and restaurants of the Alter Markt, Heumarkt and riverside are just downhill. River trips are pleasant.
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.
