“Great location & good price”

The location was fantastic between the Gare de Lyon and the Bastille - availability to transportion was great and bistro's around were good. The information provided in the room by the manager was invaluable - places to eat, see, do laundry and the metro guide was definately needed during the day. Our room was comfortable for two and we even cooked at night with ease. There is a market open next door which made purchasing ingredients very easy.

“Great Option at Bargain Price”
Reviewed 21 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We were very pleased with our 4-night stay at My Open Paris. Studio “E” was small, but provided plenty of room for for a short stay (see photos).

Positives: The location is near the Place de la Bastille; so it is out of the central tourist areas, but provides easy access to the Metro (Bastille station) and the RER trains (Gare Lyon station). There is a large Carrefour supermarket just outside the main gate and a pharmacy just a block away. Speaking of the gate, I would definitely rate security as another positive. You had to unlock 2 gates and 3 doors to access your apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean. Free wifi and calls are included. There is a refrigerator and cook stove with basic kitchen utensils and glassware. And all of this is provided at a bargain rate.

Things to know: (1) Shoes are not allowed in the apartments. You are provided a shelf in the entryway to store your shoes. (2) Although the apartment was stocked with most everything you would expect in a hotel stay; bath/shower soap was not provided. (3) The apartments are not serviced during the stay. You are expected to empty the trash and remove recyclables when needed. And we were not offered fresh towels during our stay.

Overall, a great option at a bargain price.

“We enjoyed every day”
Reviewed 21 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

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

person found this review helpful

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
