My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Paris, and stayed here on the recommendation of our travel agent. Fabulous location (easy walk to Notre Dame and local train station, just a few feet from the Luxembourg Gardens) and a wonderful staff. Highly recommend.

We arrived at Le Senat on the recommendation of close friends for a quick 2 night stopover en route back to Australia. We received a very warm welcome at this gorgeous boutique hotel and were accommodated in a lovely roomy (we were pleasantly surprised) suite on the 6th floor. Such a romantic hotel and the view from our suite overlooked the rooftops of the Latin Quarter.

The hotel has a wonderful sitting room that is stylishly furnished and cosy for a pre-dinner aperitivo (honesty bar), late night drink which also doubles for express breakfasts in the mornings at € 7. There is another larger area and if weather permits a small courtyard.

The staff (who couldn't do enough for us) recommended excellent dinner locations in close proximity to the hotel (note Parisians eat late).We made an early reservation at Le Chillout, a 1 minute walk. Sadly, it was the last night as this establishment, the owner was very helpful and went to great lengths to make us welcome and speak English with us as we had little French, don't fear as it is opening under a new name in 3 weeks. The second night we ate at la Bouillon on Racine. A more authentic French styled restaurant fitted out with a gorgeous art nouveau mirrored interior. Great food and a little more expensive and a little less English, which made it a little more challenging. This place was very popular with the locals and had a really upbeat vibe.

On the recommendation of a French national we met in Rome who told us to walk around Paris if the weather was fine, we spent our first day on foot. It was easy to navigate - once orientated to and from the hotel. The Metro was close-by and a short walk to pick up a Batobus on the Seine (relaxing, easy and cheap way to see all the sights). Le Senat is in such a great location and so good - when we visit Paris again we intend to stay here for at least a week (they have special rates).

Recently returned from weekend in Paris where we stayed at Le Senat, a well positioned, small, efficiently run hotel on the Left Bank. The staff are friendly and eager to help. The rooms are small but comfortable. We stayed in a suite on the 6th floor which had a sofa bed (used by our 10 year old son) and a glimpse of Notre Dame. The breakfast was delicious. Metro/RER stations are very close by. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants near the hotel, the restaurant next door is excellent. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again on future trips to Paris.

We have stayed at the Senat many times when my husband was in France on business and separately as vacationers. We enjoy the friendly atmosphere. The property is very cozy, as are the rooms. The service is fine: there are very few people on staff, but they do all they can to help with restaurant reservations, umbrellas, tableware (we like to do picnic lunch), and general advice on where to go and what to do. The location, if you enjoy the left bank ambience, couldn't be better; steps from Luxembourg Gardens, the Senate, Blvd St Germain and Blvd St Michele. There are restaurants galore in the neighborhood and many of them are quite good (see my review of Le Maison du Jardin). The hotel is not glamorous, but it has recently received its 4th star which is a great sign that it continues to improve. We would not stay anywhere else in Paris.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the street get more air and light. There is little noise on Rue Vaugirard, so facing front is not a problem.

We just came back from Paris and want to recommend Hotel le Senat. Right across from Luxembourg Gardens in a quiet section of the Latin Quarter, this hotel offers great service from staff; lovely rooms; and near terrific restaurants, shops, Metro, and tourist sites. The breakfast was very good and there was a wide variety of foods. WiFi though needs to be updates.
