    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel le Senat Paris

    Very Good Place To Put Your Head

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    New and Luxurious!

    from

    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.

    Enjoyed our Honeymoon at Hotel le Senat

    from

    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.

    Breakfast was included in our travel package and each morning we really loaded up. It helped us stretch our food budget. After a huge breakfast, we'd only need to buy a snack in the afternoon and then dinner. I wouldn't deem the breakfast worth the 15 euros/person that they charge, but if you can get a package with breakfast included, it is a good start to what will surely be a long and active day.

    The hotel is surprisingly quiet for being close to busy Blvd St. Michel. It is basically across the street from the Luxembourg Gardens, which are so lovely. The Luxembourg RER is a five minute walk from the hotel and you can ride directly to and from Charles De Gaulle on this line. We usually used the St. Michel Metro, which is about a 10 minute walk, though the Odeon Metro is technically closer. Since the RER and Metro systems are connected, there are really a lot of options for getting around the city. Walking, of course, is a great way to get a feel for different parts of Paris. We often elected to walk over using the subway.

    We also experienced rudeness from the night desk clerk. I can't say if it was the same night clerk that was rude to previous posters over a year ago, but there seems to be a pattern here. All other staff were pleasant and helpful. One evening, we took a picnic dinner to the Luxembourg Gardens and two female clerks leant us a corkscrew and glasses for our wine and a knife for our bread and cheese.

    We had a wonderful honeymoon, due in large part to our experience with Hotel le Senat.

    Great spot to stay

    from

    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.

    from

    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......

    We had a decent size room for two. I have a habit of peeking into other rooms and saw that some were a bit on the tiny side. Ask for a larger room. Street side or court yard side is a matter of preference. I like street sides, but the court yard was quieter. Breakfast was included. It wasn't the typical croissant and cafe au lait but had additions such as cheese, ham, hardboiled eggs, an assortment of breads and rolls.

    We love the location though the metro walk was a bit further than we'd thought it would be. But walking is part of being in Paris. Though on one of the longest streets in Paris, this section was quiet and somewhat secluded. We were moments from the Luxembourg Gardens, Sorbonne, and Pantheon. One morning we were awakened by the Republican Guard on horseback, passing by the hotel in preparation for the placing of Dumas's remains in the Pantheon.

    I saw the previous reviewer had the same night clerk!! We didn't find him rude but found that he took far more interest in his personal phone calls than in helping guests. Day clerks were terrific and gave us fabulous suggestions for restaurants. None of them, however, gave decent directions.....The housekeeper was wonderful and very accomodating (but then, why not, I'd already cleaned the bathroom with the shower....)

    And yes, we'd return.....

    Good Value

    from

    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.

    The queues were a mile long as there is a train every half hour or so to Paris but we did skip ahead as were on the midday train. Still it took all of 50 minutes to go through immigration (English and French) and security and we took our seats at 11.50 am. Once you are on board it is much more civilised with very comfy seats and electricity to charge up your phone, iPad etc. No wifi though....not until next year when they roll ...

We had a couple of pizza's with a side of cider at one of the nearby restaurants. If that is how the french make pizza then I can't wait for Italy! It was so good neither of us wanted to stop eating. Now we're back in our hotel getting ready for Disneyland ...

Today we labelled 'walking day' and walk we did. Probably the longest walk we did was up the Champs Elysse to the Arch de Triumph. A huge structure which was built by Napoleon to honour... Well himself! We also checked out the fountains near the concord round a bout which were the inspiration for ...

The others big sites of Rouen are the cathedral (which was closed) and the place Joan of Arc was burned after being accused of treason. After seeing everything, we ate a quick lunch and got back onto the bus to head go Paris. Two hours later we pulled up to our next hotel, ...
