Maison Zen
Ranked #59 of 190 Speciality Lodging in Paris
Reviewed 23 April 2012

This was our first visit to Paris and wanted somewhere we could relax at night and even make supper if we wanted. You enter from the street into a courtyard and then must ring at the green door to get into the Zen Maison courtyard and hotel. There is a lovely, little, well kept garden before entering the apartments. Ours was on the third floor, which was a bit painful in your barefeet carrying luggage. The apartment was small for 2 people but very clean and nicely decorated. It was close to Gare de Lyon where the meto is located or you could go in the opposite direction to the Bastile metro. The area has many restaurants and a good grocery store down the street. It was wonderful to come back to a quiet, peaceful place after a hectic touristy day in Paris. This is a perfect, safe and comfortable place for single women.

A night in early March 2012 in Maison Zen has left me a very good memory. My booking was made via internet with Mrs. Grazyna Perl in English.
The studio is No. 3 on the 1st floor, small, very cozy and colorful: grey and red, with a comfortable bed. The studio had a small kitchen, 1 kettle, 1 microwave and even a landline telephone. Everything was very well designed, only one regret was a problem with the internet connection. Finally, by login on te wifi network from another room, I got internet.

The building and patio are very quiet. It is difficult not to feel safe and in a peaceful environment. I was greeted by a very amiable Gentleman who provided me useful assistance due to the loss of my cellphone.

Remember to request the access code to avoid being locked out of the building.

Finally, a very quiet night. The Zen House is ideally located between Bastille and Gare de Lyon, has therefore recommend to anyone looking for an experience of calm and peace during their stay in Paris.

It was my 2nd visits. My family and I stayed there 9 days. The place was wonderful and beautiful. No interruption. Absolutely safe area.
Very close to metro, bus, Bastile and Gare de Lyon.
No regrets.
Next time, I'll definitely go there again.
