“A real gem”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

This small, but clean well-located hotel proved to be a perfect base from which to explore Paris. The room was well furnished and comfy. We were in 602, which is on the top floor. The bathroom was a bit pokey, but did the job required. The single lift is tiny, with just enough space for 2 adults and their cases. The reception and service staff were friendly and helpful, while breakfasts are pretty good and we certainly had enough choice to set us up for the day. Located close to the Luxembourg gardens, which are a pleasant place for lunch, just don't go on the grass!

Room Tip: Being on the top floor means you have first dibs on the lift.

We stayed at Le Senat in Feb 2013 with our two children (8 and 13 years). Great small hotel and only a short walk from Notredame Cathedral. Very nicely decorated with a boutique feel. Comfy bed - rooms are on the small side though (but this is common in Paris). Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend however two rooms will be required for a family of 4. Yes we will use again - when visiting Paris next.

Room Tip: Small lift and narrow stairs - not suitable for all. Two rooms required for a family of 4.

Well situated, clean, friendly and good sized rooms. Hotel le Senat was perfect for a trip to Paris with the family. The staff were very helpful and accomodating. Rooms were very comfortable with lovely facilities. We will definitely stay there again.

Upon arrival the staff were friendly in greeting us. The rooms were a comfortable size without being too claustrophobic and the L’Occitane toiletries were a nice touch. I was disappointed to see that there were no tea and coffee facilities which I would expect from a 4* hotel. Breakfast was a buffet style with a full English, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit salad (huge plums!), croissants and pastries available. Orange and grapefruit juice as well as tea and very strong coffee. I would rate the hotel as a 3* plus but not a 4*.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. After checking out, they kindly allowed us to leave our luggage at the hotel after for the majority of our last day, so that we could go out and make the most of Paris.

In terms of the location, the Jardin De Luxembourg is just over the road with beautiful surroundings. There are nice seats around for you to sit and each lunch. There are many restaurants within walking distances, particularly in roads off the Saint Michel (the main road to walk to Notre Dame); they have lots of three course set menu meals from 12 euros, 15 euros and 20ish euros.

Walking distances:
Jardin De Luxembourg 1 minute
Notre Dame within 15 minutes
Louvre roughly 25 minutes
Eiffel Tower roughly 50-60 minutes

Room Tip: I would ask for facing the street. Friends that were staying got a room facing the courtyard which w...

This is a well situated small friendly hotel with character and great staff. It virtually overlooks the Jardin du Luxembourg, the RER metro Luxembourg station is a short easy walk away even with bags and so many of the 'sights' are easily reached.
The buffet breakfast sets you up for the day.
The bedroom was more than adequate in size; don't expect large hotel rooms in Paris.
Would have no hesitation in staying again, indeed looking forward to the opportunity.

Hotel le Senat was rated 4 star, but I can tell you the staff is 5 star. Can't thank them enough for making our stay wonderful. The hotel was very clean and up to date. Excellent location and was very close to Le Jardin du Luxembourg where we spent many evenings strolling.

I've stayed here lots if times and always liked it, but I've not been in the last year or so. I had heard it had been refurbished. And it has. Very well. Everything seems more spacious and premium, but the prices seem to have stayed the same. Service is still great. I booked at the very last minute on a busy w/e and so got the smallest room I've ever stayed in there but it didn't matter at all as it's decoration made it seem quite spacious. Same great location. Can't recommend it highly enough.
