My husband and I picked Le Senat for our 3 day trip to Paris based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews as well as the location. Having both been to Paris several times, we love to stay in the Saint Germain area on the left bank. We booked a deluxe room and requested a balcony (which we got - always nice since it's not guaranteed). As a general rule, we like to book a slightly upgraded room when we travel so as not to get the lowest room class in any hotel, which I would recommend doing here. Obviously you should expect small hotel rooms in Paris though which was another reason for our upgrade.
Nice modern design/feel and furnishings
Decent room size (deluxe room)
Quiet - our room was internal and we heard no street noise
Bathroom - no space for toiletries which I hate! Also, terrible lighting and no magnifying mirror. I found it very difficult to put my makeup on and my husband had a very hard time shaving - bouncing between the room mirror by the bed (where you can at least get up close, but is still dark) and the one in the bathroom (which you can't get as close to).
Shower - while I have come to expect the half-glass door thing in showers in France, it still is frustrating to not be able to avoid flooding your bathroom floor. But more annoying is that the shower head would not stay in the right position so I had to resort to holding it by hand the whole time which is a pain & not relaxing.
Closet space - very limited for 2 people. No drawers (only shelves) and very limited hanging space.
Things that did not bother me, but may bother you:
Room size (deluxe room was ok for 2 people)
Very small elevator and narrow hallways in hotel
Service - we found the staff mixed levels of friendliness and helpfulness. Did not offer to help with bags, did not smile, bare minimum level of service & cordiality.
