“Great Location, nice little hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

My wife and I stayed here with our 3 year old for 3 nights. The hotel is welcoming, clean and in a fabulous location, just off the Luxembourg Gardens. We had requested an extra bed for our toddler, which was a sofa bed. She was very comfortable, but it's pretty much the smallest room I've ever been in. We had to walk sideways to get past the end of our bed! Perhaps if a sofa bed is being used, they could do a slightly bigger room. Otherwise, very comfy, hot water, and excellent honesty bar downstairs. If you have a pram, leave it downstairs as the lift is teeny weeny.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thanks you for your nice review.

About room's size, I canno't say that rooms are large but rooms have a "good size" for our location in Paris. Rooms on left bank ( most of the time ) are smallers than on right bank, prehaps you were accommodated on the right bank before to come in our area.
Of course, when sofa bed is open, you lose space in the room and it is less convenient to move in.

We will be very pleased to welcome you in Hotel Le Senat when you will be back.

Sincerely Yours

A small, modern, stylish hotel close to the Luxembourg RER and within walking distance of the city centre in a quiet location near the Jardins de Luxembourg. Entirely free of transatlantic standardisation or assertiveness. The staff are friendly and speak English, and the rates are reasonable by Paris standards, including effective air conditioning and wi-fi. The only disappointment is the breakfast room, which is cramped and airless. Since the rate excludes breakfast, better to find a pavement cafe.

Dear Valued Guest,

My staff and myself are always very happy when we know that our guests have appreciated their stay in Hotel Le Senat.

About the breakfast room, we know that is not our strong point, but by this way we have a bigger lobby where our guests can stay t oread newspapers, check their emails in our business corner, or have an quick breakfast or drink a glass in our Honesty Bar, where it is always possible to drink a Nespresso Coffee.

We hope to see you back very soon in Hotel Le Senat.

Sincerely Yours

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Le Senat. To save money we opted for the basic room (superior room), which was cozy, clean, well kept, with a comfortable bed and upgraded bathroom.....but quite small. The professional pictures on their website are very accurate except for the size of this basic room which is smaller than any picture they have on their website. There is no where to store a suitcase and only a very small closet with 5 hangers so all of our clothes were piled on the desk. But this size is typical of Paris and who cares, you are in Paris, why are you in your room anyway but to sleep. The staff is quite friendly and everyone spoke English. Housekeeping changed sheets daily and the hotel was spotless. And the location can't be beat - safe, very quiet and in walking distance to parks, the restaurants of St Germaine, Notre Dame and the Louvre. For a clean, quiet, well maintained hotel with reliable internet in one of the best areas of Paris I would recommend this place. But bring an alarm clock, because there are not any in the room.

Room Tip: For extra money, there are larger rooms with balconies.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thanks you for your nice feedback.

Room's size in Paris is always a problem but it depends of our guests and what they want to do.

If you are accommodated for a long stay with a lot of suitcases, it should be better to book at least a Deluxe room.

Anyway, if you need to stay only few days, a Superior room could be convenient because less expensive than Deluxe rooms, of course each guest has some differents needings.

My staff and myself are always ready to help our guests to find the best solution for their stay.

With my kinds regards

We stayed at Le Senat in June 2014. The location next to the Luxembourg Gardens, and within a short stroll of numerous excellent restaurants and cafes, make this one of the most pleasant and convenient places to enjoy a Parisien break. The staff could not have been more helpful, and the spacious room (we were upgraded to a suite) was very well serviced/cleaned each day. With modern facilities, the Salnt Germain location, and many of the usual tourist destinations within walking distance, we would stay there again and consider it excellent value.

Hotel Le Senat was a nice respite from the busy-ness of the city. Location near Luxembourg gardens was easy. The rooms comfortable, clean, and well maintained. The staff was gracious and very helpful. Breakfast was tasty and satisfying. We would certainly return.

The hotel is situated very close to the Senate and the Luxembourg gardens. We found the hotel to be really charming. Good spacious rooms, with comfortable beds - very pleasant staff. We would stay at this hotel again. Very good value for Paris. It's a very modern hotel which we really enjoyed. Plus the Luxembourg gardens are only a few minutes by foot from the hotel so it was really great to be able to stop into the gardens for a walk throughout the several days we were there.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies.

I stayed at Le Senat with a friend for a girl's weekend in Paris. We arrived early (10am) on a Saturday morning and not only did they have a room ready for us, we had also been upgraded to a suite! A lovely suite on the 6th floor, over looking the rooftops of Paris. Staff were very helpful with local restaurant recommendations and directions. We did not have breakfast in the hotel so I can't comment on that. The honesty bar is a great idea and so nice to be able to pour a glass of wine for yourself and enjoy it in their lounge or take it up to your room. Our room was quiet and very light with two big windows. It was very clean and modern (I think the whole hotel was refurbished only 2 years prior). Bathroom was small-ish but modern and had a separate WC which is always useful. It's location in Saint Germain is great, a very stylish and buzzy neighbourhood yet close to the Luxembourg Gardens for some peace and green space. I cannot recommend more highly - a lovely place for your stay in Paris.

Dear Madam,

Thanks you very much for your nice feedback.


We have some few rooms with an amazing view on all Paris and its roofs.

About breakfast, you didn't have them in our hotel, anyway you have two choices with a buffet breakfast at 17 euros per person per day or an express breakfast at 7 euros in the honesty bar.

Hotel Le Senat is very well located in one of the nicest area of Paris, in Saint Germain des Près, just close to Luxembourg garden.

We hope to see you back very soon.

With my best regards
