SenS Hotel extensive guide to Berkeley and San Francisco area, plus inspiring articles about trips around the world

Berkeley and Beyond


Annual Events





SenS Hotel & Bistro   1538 Shattuck Ave./Cedar St., Gourmet Ghetto.  3 stories; 18 rooms.  Cafe; room service.  No pets.  Some free parking.  Situated just across the street from Chez Panisse, this European-modern hotel was originally a French laundry.  Renovated into East-West fusion style, its rooms all have a private patio. 
          In the morning, this stretch of Shattuck is very busy with locals in search of caffeine and flaky pastries.  Van Bistro--the hotel’s coffeehouse--has a cozy high-ceilinged, brick-walled interior plus sidewalk tables that are nice on sunny mornings.  Only-in-Berkeley moments here might include seeing a Hare Krishna couple walk by ringing their bells while singing and chanting and giving out a BIG smile.
