"We did Paris our way this time by renting this apartment and feeling like part of the neighborhood. Next time we’ll stay longer!” Linka Sobkowski (Bellingham, WA, USA)

"What a relaxing yet stimulating corner of Paris you have!  We would enjoy the delights of the city at our doorstep and retreat to this little sanctuary, where we’d enjoy movies and music after a dinner in one of the quartier’s many restaurants. The elevator made it possible for my stepmother (85) and my dad to enjoy their first trip to Paris. Merci mille fois!" – Kathleen Rahal

"What a wonderful city!!!  Our apartment provided everything we needed and more! I will miss this city and hopefully we’ll be back again. The decor is delightful – a credit to the owners. Will miss you, Rue des Trois Portes!!!" Christeen Kaluaat (West End, Australia)

"We very much enjoyed our stay at the Notre Dame apt. on rue des Trois Portes. It was a perfect setup for my husband and myself and our granddaughter, and we loved the location. We do love so many things about your wonderful apartment – being so close to the La Cite in the heart of the 5th arrondissement, the unique and beautiful furnishings. It is also very convenient to the university sites where we have our research contacts in Paris." Lia and Stan Bronsard (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)

"I came to France with my son and sister for an adventure of a lifetime. And it is just that. I love it all, and especially the old worn spiral stairs. I love looking from the window as life each day begins slowly with a clean-up at 7 a.m. and unfolds at 10 a.m. into a hive of activity. I could live here for a long, long time. The history is wonderful, the cobbled streets I adore. I am 60, and I hope to come back. I want to feel the energy and romance that is Paris." Kaye Christensen (West End, Australia)

"Well situated, well appointed, a total delight from the lace curtains to the primitive artifacts, and a fabulously comfortable haven – a complete plaisir." Thank you, Sally Kellman (Alameda, CA, USA)

"If you want to be in the heart of Paris, stay here! Not only did the location give us easy access to so many key cultural landmarks, the surrounding neighborhood is also full of old world charm - and it's hip. This apartment accommodated all of our needs (the décor is beautiful and comfortable) – outside the door, an easy stroll to the river opens up to many delights. This is the place to stay with family or friends. Thank you – merci! We will always cherish our memories on the rue des Trois Portes!" Liz Keim (San Francisco, CA, USA) 

"We are so sad to be leaving our little Paris retreat. This has been an amazing chance just to live the life Parisian, to wander and follow the rule of "If it looks interesting, explore it!" We would love to come back someday but hope that in the meantime that friends will follow our recomendation and share in the pleasures of Rue des Trois Portes." Kristy and Marc Hardman (Sydney, Australia)

"This was a great find! We've been here before, but I think I like this location best. It was always easy to find our way home - just look for Notre Dame!" David and Joanne Allan (Minneapolis, MN, USA)

"We are here with our two granddaughters - ages 14 and 15 - their first trip to Paris and are delighted with the choice we made to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel. I love the old beams, the light, the spacious bathrooms. Merci mille fois!" Ginger and Doug Keane (Boston, MA, USA)

"... We found it to be warm, inviting and a welcome safe haven at the end of the day when our feet and bodies would no longer propel us forward. It was decorated with much love - and beautifully appointed, having everything we needed. I loved the eclectic mix of artwork and objets d'art and books. Lovely! Thank you again, and perhaps one day we'll return again? If our 16 year old daughter has anything to say about it, we will!..." Phyllis, Peter and Savannah Hanson (Orlando, FL, USA)

"Very much enjoyed our stay in this apartment with all the art. Upstairs sleeper sofa very comfortable." Leonard and Judy Titus (Topeka, KS, USA)

"We found it quite reasonable, considering the alternative - two hotel rooms that would have been cold and cramped, most likely! We found the apartment spacious enough for the four of us. The two bathrooms are key! Your apartment was great, and we would go back in a second!" Donna Del Moro (New Jersey, USA)

"We would love to tell so many of our friends about this place, but on the other hand, we may keep it our little secret - as your apartment encompasses everything we could have asked for on our adventure in Paris! Thank you for opening up your home to us." Taylor and Carter Schmeek (California, USA)

"Merci beaucoup from four sad Aussies who are closing the door of No. 16, Rue des Trois Portes for the last time early this beautiful, sunny Paris morning!..  It’s been the best of locations, facilities, shops to restock for home dinners, metro, etc. etc.  Enjoyed eclectic collection of music and beautiful books.  Kitchen is great and beds comfy!  Thank you so much."  The Watchorns (Tasmania, Australia)

“Thank you for providing such a comfortable, clean apartment.  We love your well-equipped kitchen.  You have thought of every detail.  Like many others, we have enjoyed the whimsical décor.  Merci!”  Jean McKenzie Leiper (Canada)

“The apartment has the essential cooking/laundry needs for anyone.  We were able to have friends over for impromptu dinners as the table seated at least 8 people.  Well worth the cost.”  Dave and Kathy (West Hartford, CT, USA)

“After 30+ years of visiting Paris, we’ve seen a few apartments and hotel rooms – and 16 rue des Trois Portes was really a HIT!”  (Pat and Chris Wetherall (Sydney, Australia)

“The apartment is full of character & charm and the location is second to none.  Perfect for a family of four - like us. The kids loved it - their first time in Paris - our youngest daughter was so sad when we left she cried. You really can't get a better endorsement than that... We'll be back for sure - loved everything!” Andrew Birbeck (Ireland)

"We really enjoyed our anniversary / vacation accommodations.  Loved the CD collection.  Hot water, without end!"  Naomi Kaskie (Texas)

"The apartment is so nicely fitted out.  It has been a pleasure to stay here – in a straight line of walking to our project in the Marais.  Thank you – Steven Harvey (New York City)

"Bonjour!  Here in Paris is such a wonderful adventure!  Every morning, my mom, dad, and I have eaten croissants and palmiers. And since this apartment is so centrally located, it is very easy to find good places to eat.  Overall, our stay here in Paris was amazing!  Especially since we were able to stay in such a cool and awesome apartment.  Thank you!"  Lauren, Teri, Michael  (Irvine, California, USA)

"The apartment was in a fantastic location, just a very short walk to the River and of course Notre Dame. With so many cafes, restaurants and bars so close we were spoilt for choice. The apartment was everything as described with plenty of space. This is what we love about apartments, you could go home after a long day sightseeing knowing that you could put your feet up and really relax, looking out the windows, listening and watching life go by. Which is exactly what we were after. We loved having the dining table with room for six, we were able to have friends over and to sit, drink and talk. Having two bathrooms was great."  Susan McEwen (Australia)

"The notebook with tourist tips, especially restaurants and markets close to apt. was VERY helpful. The location was great. Excellent livable furnishings."  Margaret Parker (United States)
