Small hotel near the hip 6th Arr. stores and restaurantsfrom ackerdear
Clean, Modern, and Comfortablefrom skim
I paid 150 euros per night for a single on the fourth floor facing the street. My room was very clean and modern. The decor was to my taste. The sheets, the carpet, the comforter, all felt new and unworn. The mattress was comfortable, though far from the best. The day I checked in, the room was cool, and there was a very pleasant scent, a mixture that I think included vanilla. That and the mint chocolate on the pillow left me with a very positive first impression, though neither the scent nor the chocolate reappeared during my stay.
The room itself was very small, by US standards, but I was very comfortable with the space. In European hotels, you pay less for a single, and you get a smaller room. My room had an upright shower, no bathtub. There was a flat-panel TV on the wall at the foot of the bed - because a normal TV would be hard to fit in this room. The hallways have the same modern touch, but are narrow and dimly lit. The door locks use the convenient computer-controlled security card, rather than the key chained to a paper-weight that many older European hotels seem to favor.
The windows are sound-proof and seal out the street noise completely, though it's not a very busy street. I sometimes slept with the windows open without a problem.
The reception staff was very courteous and warm, though not super friendly, and their appearance seemed to match the hotel well - young, attractive, and clean-cut. And they spoke English well.
The location is very good. It's within walking distance of a few Metro stations, and there are plenty of restaurants and Parisian cafes nearby. There is an Internet cafe a couple doors down the street. One block away is a street filled with Japanese restaurants. Two blocks to the east is the very busy Boulevard St Michel. My favorite part of Paris is the northern section of St Germain des Pres, between the Seine and Boulevard St Germain, which is a 5 minute walk north. I've also walked to the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and Notre Dame. And one block west of the hotel is Jardin du Luxembourg. A beautiful garden. Look for a small brown Statue of Liberty on the western edge, which even most Parisians don't know about.
Should I ever return to Paris, Hotel Le Senat will be my first choice.

Points about the hotel:
Good: Clean and modern bathroom (loved the big bath tub), clean, internet cables in the room, french doors, good quality toiletries in bathroom, great bar lobby and reading room at rear of reception.
Improvement: Room is a little small for 2 people and 2 suitcases. Wardrobe is small, buffet breakfast is expensive for 15Euros a head when there is very little food options (dining room is rather small), remove the portable toilet near the entrance to the hotel.
All in all, this is a great little hotel situated in one of paris' small alley streets. The room has a parisien charm to it.
Pointer: Enjoy the spectacles on the right of Saint Mitchell (including greek plate smashing and people insisting that you come into their restaurant) but don't eat there (very tourist-like food - we made that mistake). Struggle with your french and go to the left bank and have good quality french food.

Loved It!from RamblinSal
The hotel is located very near Luxemborg Gardens and about a 7-10 minute walk from Odeon Metro. Very close to St. Germain and St. Michel. Lots of good restaurants and brasseries in the area.
We would definately stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Paris
real taste of Paris area 5 main street, try one of the gigantic salads - also do many traditional french classics. also do a fish market stall at lunch time, few of close restaurants use the produce for lunch - try the oysters
Transportation to and from airport I would highly recommend arranging transportation to and from the airport. It was a blessing to know that our ride was there when we arrived versus having to figure out the subway schedule or pay for a taxi.
Open-top bus A fabulous way of seeing all the sights - by far the cheapest way of getting around Paris as you just buy a 2 day pass and hop on and off wherever you want to! From the Champs Elysees to Eiffel Tower to the Opera and everything inbetween, it's a daggy touristy option I know, but it sure beats pounding the pavement and wanting to die by the end of the day... and you get to see more than you could possibly hope to on foot. Highly recommended if you only have a few days to enjoy Paris, whether you're on your own or travelling with your significant other and/or family/friends.
