We stayed at My Home in Paris in October 2022. I’m not one for posting reviews on anything but on this occasion, it warrants a ‘BIG WARNING’ for anyone considering staying at this hotel, especially if you have children. I’ve been fortunate over many decades to travel the world for pleasure and work, so I’m speaking from experience of staying at a lot of hotels. We arrived at My Home in Paris, and received a pleasant greeting that quickly turned to an attitude of it’s my hotel so if you don’t like it then leave. The initial charade started when my wife and I arrived with our 3 year old child. In all of the hotels over the past 3 years when all three of us had travelled, we book a room and bed big enough for us all to sleep in and there has NEVER been any issues. The owner insisted the room we had booked wasn’t big enough, we should have indicated we had a child before arriving and she didn’t have any other rooms, therefore we would have had to leave without a refund. We asked the hotel owner, if we could see the superior room we had booked, she kept saying no. Surely, it’s upto us as the customer to decide whether a room is big enough! She was looking at her booking screen for ages and phoned someone to discuss (most likely her husband). After a back and forth discussion, we were told that we would have to upgrade to an executive room, with the same size bed as a superior, for an extra 500 Euros. This meant our stay for 4 nights cost us over 1500 Euros. We were held to ransom and had no choice but to pay the extra amount as no refund was offered. Unfortunately, we had no choice but to pay the money and stay. From this point the situation got worse. The male owner told our 3 year old to ‘SSSHHHH!’ loudly at breakfast on Friday morning and when she broke a glass on the last day the hotel breakfast room heard a loud sigh and rolling of the eyes from the same man. I was told that a glass I took from the coffee machine could only be used for coffee and not water!!! Does it matter? All the while you are at the hotel, you feel like you’re being watched, like a very strict boarding school, and are made to feel really uncomfortable. A guest took a very small croissant one morning when passing through the breakfast room and was asked by the male owner if she had paid for breakfast! You will see from other reviews that the breakfast is very basic and average (more 1 to 2 star rather than 4 star) and not worth the money, I would recommend to avoid this. It’s also the only hotel, including much nicer 5 star hotels I’ve stayed in, that under no circumstances allows you to bring any type of food into the hotel. Again other reviews highlight this. Other things that were disappointing – the safe was not bolted to the wall or floor, so anyone could have come in and carried it away (we were in a ground floor room); only 1 bath robe was left in the room (an executive room as well!); nothing to write on in the room; no where to put your cases outside of the wardrobe apart from the floor; only 1 very small bottle of complimentary water for the whole stay; a wardrobe with limited high shelves; we were told reception was manned 24 hours, but on quite a few occasions we had wait for someone to appear to give us our room key; I could go on… Finally, there wasn’t much to do around the area and we had to either take the Metro or taxi to get anywhere. There a much nicer parts of Paris to stay in. All in all, the owners of this hotel should bring in a hotel manager who knows how to run a hotel and treat guests. We will never return and would not recommend anyone else to stay here especially if you have children. …
We stayed here for 5 nights and it was a wonderful stay!! The rooms were not too small (like other rooms in Paris) and extremely nice and chic. Breakfast was delicious and they even provided us with Gluten free bread. Staff were friendly and the neighborhood is great - lots of restaurants and 2 metro stations close by.
I was stuck for a place to stay heading into Paris Fashion Week. I walked into this hotel and the receptionist was very sweet.I was planning to book the next day, but when I looked online I noticed the room description says no food is allowed in the rooms or lobby. There is no way I would book room in a hotel where I couldn't eat a snack in my room. How silly!!
If only we've realized how deeply inconvenient it would be for the hotel staff to host us in their hotel, than we may have done everyone a favour and not stay here at all. The hotel doors are locked at all times of day, but luckily no one sits at the concierge desk either. After a 10 minutes wait out in the street with our luggage, we were let in only to be told off for landing in France too early. We were told that the room would not be ready for the next few hours. It was apparent that our flight planing did not sit well with the manager, who failed to even welcome us to the hotel - so angry was he. When we returned in the afternoon we were told off again, this time for inconveniencing the staff by storing our luggage in the luggage room, though it has never occurred to them to take it up to our room in order to alleviate said inconvenience. At that point we had to ask where was our room, and if there is a way to get in to the hotel, without waiting in the street for someone to open the door. In his eagerness to let us know how we failed to please the hotel staff, he forgot to tell us. I've never stayed in a hotel room with a plastic carpet before. A night's sleep revealed that the sheets were made of the same material as the carpet - which was about as breathable as a tomb. I've also never stayed in a hotel where if I run out of shampoo I'm accused of lying - on consecutive days, no less. Asking for a glass of water is yet another way to upset the staff, who will begrudgingly provide a £4.5 small bottle of evian. I have no idea how this is classed as a 4 star hotel, or why on earth the staff members got into the hospitality business, but while this place is far from being homey in any way, the name does strangely fit - it is obvious they would rather we wouldn't stay in *their* home in paris and that we were not welcome.…
Spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful people. Quiet location yet 1 min to nearest metro and a great base to walk from. Excellent restaurants within a few minutes walk. Beautiful room. Highly recommend
We loved coming back to our room after a busy day exploring Paris-it felt like home ! Thank you for all your attention to detail! From fresh daily linens and the well appointed room to the ample breakfast, our stay was very comfortable! Highly recommend staying here.
This is a lovely boutique hotel. I would return in a jiffy. Just bear in mind that in some of the rooms the sink (elegant and beautiful) is in the bedroom, not the bathroom. So if full bathroom privacy is an issue, think twice about this. For everything else, this is a gem of a hotel.
All the staff were super friendly and accommodating. We were offered an upgrade on arrival and they kindly booked a restaurant for us when we were late arriving. Rooms were really comfortable and recently renovated. Its in a great location with a plethora of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and attractions on the doorstep. Also easy to get down to the Seine for a run if you fancy some exercise. Would definitely recommend.
Summer of 2019, my wife and I booked "My Home in Paris" through Booking.com . When we got there, my wife was not feeling well. We went to our room, clean but strangely designed, but that was not a real issue. My wife was feeling very weak and almost feverish. So I went downstairs to order some soup for her. I was told "No soup in the room." No food period in the room. But the website says, Room Service. Ah yes, said the man, "That mean tea. We will bring tea." My wife needed more than tea. I complained to Booking.com. They called the man in French. He was steadfast. No soup for my wife. (She's not white; I wonder if that was a reason; who knows?) Anyway, we left the next morning. He billed us for our entire stay. We paid another hotel for three nights -- a great place, Hotel General, I seem to remember. My Home in Paris will have a rebuttal, but remember this: BOOKING.COM RETURNED ALL OF OUR MONEY. THEY SAID THERE WAS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS HOTEL'S BEHAVIOR. …
We stayed here for five days 4 nights. Everything runs very well here. Quite a few staff speaks English and very friendly. Room is clean, location is excellent.. close to metro stations, cafes, supermarkets where it is easy to find snacks, sandwiches, baguettes, fruits, cheeses, wins, everything. When check-in, we were not asked to show passports, which made us feeling like staying at our second house. The front desk service is available 24/7 I believe. I would recommend it to our friends for sure.
