Better Than Expected
Liked: The hotel was conveniently located in the ?gourmet ghetto.? The room was pleasant and quiet, and had a balcony with a table and two chairs. Free cup of good coffee each morning (one per person) from the coffee shop on the ground floor. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was nicely decorated. Staff members were friendly. There was a good amount of storage space.
Disliked: The room was small and a bit cramped, especially the corner where the desk and the bathroom door had to co-exist. The trash cans were too small.

Sens is a perfect Bay...
Liked: The room had everything I needed. It was quite and comfortable. The location is perfect. I loved having the cafe downstairs. The staff in both the cafe and the hotel were exceptionally friendly. Sens is my new go-to place to stay when I visit the Bay Area.

One of the only hotels...
Liked: It's European-ish and quirky. Has personality. Comfortable. On the same block as one of the best pizza and cheese shops in America.
Disliked: The view from the balcony overlooked a supermarket parking lot. There are many nice views in Berkeley but this isn't one of them.

Good location in the Gourmet...
Liked: I chose this hotel because it was just blocks from my son?s house, and for its close proximity to many restaurants. The room had been nicely updated, and the bed was very comfortable.
Disliked: There is little to no sound insulation between rooms, and I really didn?t enjoy listening to my neighbor singing loudly both early in the morning and late at night! I could hear every word spoken, and when he turned on his TV it was unbearable. (I spoke to the front desk about it, and they did call him to request he turn it down, and also offered to move me to another room, which I would have done had I been staying longer.) My room could have used a more thorough cleaning as I found men?s whiskers in the sink and hair in the shower. The hotel is attached to a little coffee shop which closes at 2pm, so it?s all locked up and all the chairs are on top of the tables from then on. You have to ring the doorbell to be let in, and then enter through the deserted shop to get to your room. It?s not a welcoming site to come home to.

Staying here was a big...
Liked: The location is to die for-- adjacent to shops, cafes, groceries next door!, bus line, BART station, campus, PO, Rose Garden, parks, UC Botanical Garden, Tilden Park, drug store. The room is well appointed with super comfy bed, excellent lighting, storage, glassware, silverware, and even a balcony from which we watched Gulf fritillary butterflies sipping at the hotel vines while we sipped our delicious free daily coffee. The staff was also wonderful.
Disliked: I was 99% satisfied except for the pretty bathroom door swinging into the person sitting at the desk and vice versa. (not a problem unless there's more than one person of course.) Otherwise the room met every possible need.
