We stayed in a studio apartment in a charming old building within easy walking distance of a main railway station, Gare de Lyon and buses. The apartment is clean and compact and really only suited for one or two people. There is storage, a table for meals and the computer, plus free WiiFi. The bathroom is small but adequate. The kitchen has basic items which made self-catering possible. There is an excellent supermarket next door where you can pick up most things you need. Eanjo, the owner, is very friendly and helpful and gave us tips on local restaurants, transport, shopping, a hairdresser and allowed a late check-out on our final day. 8/10

“My little piece of home in Paris”
Reviewed 11 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

My wife and myself loath staying in hotels especially in Europe where things to eat are sooo expensive hence by staying in apartments we can cook daily and have nice meals outside on selected days.
we also like to stay near locals as we will be able to experience life as a local even for a short while.
lastly we like a short term "home" to stay in and not just a room.

Eanjo & Stef are very nice host and the apartment they offered gave us a sense on being at home.

No doubt that the place is small compare to where we are residing at the moment, but it is cosy, nice and brings joy to anyone chose to stay here.

The kitchenette is functional and easy to use, we mange to cook meals here for the days we stay in Paris.

The Bedroom thou small, is very cosy and on some lazy afternoon you are able to hear one of the neighbor practicing his jazz saxophone... which is a wonderful cliche!!! the pillow are fluffy (i believe it is feathered pillow) and the quilt is clean and warm.

The living room is nicely decorated with that good Parisian feel to it... you will be constantly reminded that you are in your home in Paris

The towels are fresh, the bathroom are complete even thou it is small,it have a nice tub in it.

When you first arrive Eanjo will give you a run thru of the apartment, and a brief of living and moving around in Paris. She is a very very nice person and both she and Stef will help you with almost anything if they can.

The location is , in my humble opinion, the best!! no jam .. accessible to the metro,train station, 15 min to Gare Du Nord (by cab- paid only 8euro) buses to all the best sights, great deli's and supermarket just below... what you need u have it there.

i already miss staying there and will definitely stay there again when i am back.

and thanks for the nice choc Eanjo and Stef - you guys are Da'best!!!

lot of love

“2nd time!!”
Reviewed 5 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

I have been to Paris 7 or 8 times and stayed in hotels. But last year I found this place on tripadvisor. This year(just came back on October 28), my daughter and I stayed here. I always want to stay at clean, quiet and reasonable place. All the reviews are really true. One thing they have not mentioned is: no elevator-- We stayed on 3rd floor and the owner helps with luggages when I checked in so there is no problems. Also, this is not a hotel so you see only 35 on the building(looks like regular building but don't worry). The owner, Eanjo, will tell you how to get into court yard then to second court yard which is coi pond garden(not so big but beautiful). Some reviews mentioned the meditation room which brought me here last year. I love it!

“Wonderful - like staying in your own apt. in Paris!”

My Open Paris was formerly part of the Maison Zen but is now a separate business at the same location. Pauline Frommer calls this place a monastery, but don’t be deterred if Buddhism is not your thing. There is a beautiful Zen meditation room on the ground floor & a lovely meditation garden, but staying at My Open Paris is like having your own apartment in a very nice, small apartment building. The proprietors are very welcoming, informative, and accommodating.

I stayed in a studio that was very clean, quiet, comfortable, & tastefully furnished. It had a small kitchen (as apparently all the rooms do) with a microwave, 2-burner stove, sink, and refrigerator. Eating out in Paris can be very expensive & time-consuming, so I was very glad to be able to cook some meals in the apartment. Cable TV with French & English-speaking channels is provided, as well as a telephone with free phone calls to all landlines worldwide. The bookshelf in the room had various Paris guidebooks, reading books, & even a French-English dictionary.

My Open Paris is quite close to 2 major metro stations & many bus stops, so it is very accessible to all of Paris. The neighborhood offers a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, bakeries, open-air markets, and several good supermarkets.

Staying at My Open Paris added so much to the joy of my stay in Paris. I highly recommend the experience!
