... around before we headed down to the second level. I was so glad we made it to the second level safely and was more excited to enjoy the height from there. Of course, Ez had to pee and wouldn't you know it, they have a bathroom on the Eiffel Tower on the second level. This is a good thing because he would never have made it otherwise. We ended our night by going to a hill, Trocedero, that has a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower at night, plus ...

She said “Alabama, but I’ve been living in Paris for the last 12 years”. What an opportunity! Many people dream of moving to France to live and work.

... cathedral, however you can see a few shots of the outside and the view. Inside was just incredible. The architecture and scale was amazing and can truly only be appreciated first hand. This is a very old building but the workmanship shows a structure that was built to last for several millennia. The best part of all was that our train metro pass worked to get a ride up the tram...which saved us from something like 500 stairs each ...

A Croque Madame was a Grilled ham sandwich with melted Canal cheese topping the bread and a fried egg on top. It was delicieux (delicious). We are improving on reciting Si’l vous Plait and Merci during basically all communication. *Citing the above noted “Café Richard”. I have ...
And what a European Adventure it was! Girlfriends Charma and Brenda boarded a plane and met me in Paris, where we had a trip of a lifetime. We jokingly called it the "transportation tour" because we: rode segways and bikes around Paris, cruised the Seine on a boat, rode a golf cart in the Versailles gardens, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel le Senat Paris
Very Good Place To Put Your Head
I definitely would stay here again! The rooms are well-appointed and clean and you just can't beat the location! We were lucky enough to get a room with a terrace which enhanced the experience. The Staff was friendly and responsive to all our needs. The only drawback- as is usual in Paris, rooms are somewhat on the small side and closet space could be better.
However, all in all, an enjoyable experience and I will be a repeat visitor
Lovely hotel, great location
Nice, modern hotel in a great location. Very clean and comfortable with friendly staff. My only complaint was that I couldn't sleep - it was hot in the city and it was too noisy and cold to leave the air conditioning on but it was also too noisy to leave the window open! Aaargh! I had a good deal for the hotel from wotif (120 euros per night) but I think the rack rate is too expensive (our 'classic' room would have been 290 euros) and breakfast is also expensive at 15 euros. Other than that - it's a lovely place to stay if you can get a good deal and you're right by the Luxembourg Gardens - gorgeous.
We stayed at Hotel Le Senat (formerly Hotel Senateur) for six nights in May 2004. This newly renovated hotel is ideally located next to Jardin du Luxembourg, the Latin Quarter and the St. Germain des Pres areas, yet on a quiet section of Rue Vaugirard! It's surrounded by zillions of restaurants, bistros, shops etc. in either direction and walking distance to Notre Dame, the Sorbonne, Pantheon, even the Louvre. We also enjoyed a stroll through the gorgeous Jardin du Luxembourg to Montparnasse. Our room (called a suite) was one of the bigger rooms in the hotel and was still on the small side (it's Paris!), but was new, beautiful, quiet and clean. The beds had luxurious duvets, and the bathroom was literally sparkling! We found all the staff people to be very nice and helpful, and we had especially fun and helpful conversations with Monsieur Mauro at the front desk! Would definitely stay there again.
My husband and I stayed at Hotel le Senat for five nights for our honeymoon in early June 2004. The hotel, renovated a year ago, had enough swank and touches of luxury to feel special. In other words, we wanted more than a run of the mill three star for our honeymoon. We thought we did well considering we couldn't afford the Ritz during high season. We were very comfortable and our room and bathroom were spotless.
Great spot to stay
Spent 3 nights here over new year. A lovely hotel in a great location and fantastic value. Room was very narrow but decor superb and what a comfortable bed.
Very quiet and great for sleeping in late. Not advisable for 6 footers but we enjoyed it and found the staff friendly as soon as we got to know them.
Only 10 mins walk from RER station which is direct to CDG airport and saves bringing luggage through metro. 10 mins walk from notre dame.
Got a double room for 130 a night without breakfast which i found top value. 4 star room
We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were comfortable and servicable. The shower forcefull!! (When will the French understand the value of the shower curtain!!!) It would sometimes just fly out of my hand resulting in a good rinse of the walls....and anything else that happaned to be in the bathroom......
Good value for the price. Non-touristy area with a fabulous French restaurant on the corner. Also, good shopping and close to everything. Room had updated bathroom with plenty of hot water.
Only negative comment - night receptionist was rude and wouldn't even recommend a restaurant to us.
