... the bima, so we didn't walk around the sanctuary, but we were able to shoot some photos of the synagogue's architectural features and take a look at the sanctuary.
I'm a real fan of art nouveau, and the visit was a sweet surprise.
Although Hector Guimard's work was prolific, and ...
... were in French, so I couldn’t actually learn anything about the animals and evolution, I just looked at them and make up the story in my head.
I didn’t go to the Museum of Natural History today because I was all animaled-out, so I headed to the 3rd arrondissement in search of hidden food markets called Marche des Enfants Rouges that my cousin Katherine had told me about. On the way, a little old French lady stopped me in my tracks ...
... Then we saw how they make movies in the Cinemagic and Animagic. The we tested the scream monitor. Aiden and me got to the top. I screamed really loud and everybody was watching us as their kids could not achieve it (poor mum and dad).
Then we saw and interactive Dragon. He breathed, opened his mouth and roared really scary. It was pretty cool.
Then we looked around for some souveniers and went across to Disneyland to see the light and fire show.
Today we set our alarms to wake early to try and beat some of the tourists going to the Eiffel Tower. On our way we stopped and tried the "2nd best croissant in Paris". It was pretty good. It took us about half an hour from Carole's to get there. There was a big line down the street, I went ahead to see what it was and yep it was the line to get in. We were walking the stairs to the second level so our line wasn't so long, took about 20mins. Was still pretty cool out so ...
... I could enjoy as mouth had been watering at all the patisseries along the way. Not the best place in the world to be in if gluten intolerant, but perhaps one way of saving the waistline a little.
Soon we were home and entering our apartment through the fragrant courtyard, and thanks to my wonderful husband we soon got to eat a lovely meal cooked from the fresh produce we had purchased that morning.
Boy would we sleep well ...

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.
