RUE DES TROIS PORTES is a charming and spacious one-bedroom duplex apartment centrally located just one block from the Seine and only a few steps from the cathedral of Notre Dame.
The apartment has a secure digicode entry system and separate entrances on each floor. An antique circular staircase links the bedroom on the lower level to the living/dining/kitchen on the upper level. Each level has a full bathroom. The bedroom offers a king-size bed, and in the living room, a full-size sofa bed offers additional accommodation, making this an ideal unit for one or two couples – or for a small family up to four. Because of the open, interior, circular staircase, children under 4 years are not permitted.
The primary entrance to the apartment, on the third floor, leads to an open living and dining area. The living room has a leather sofa that easily converts to a comfortable bed for two. An ancient folk-art armoire from the Spanish Pyrenees looks like it might be out of North Africa. In this armoire is a CD player with an eclectic selection of jazz, classical and world music. In the same armoire, you will find some games and extra linens for the sofa bed. Additional linens and a small dresser can be found in the entry hall closet. An antique glass bookcase offers a nice collection of guidebooks on Paris and France, as well an assortment of art books and a miscellany of English language novels. You can settle into the 1930’s Art-Deco club chair by the circular staircase to read them.
A handsome Balinese dining table seats six but with capacity to comfortably seat eight. The American-style kitchen comes fully equipped, with a 'Miele' brand dishwasher, a four-burner electric stove top, microwave and regular ovens, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, toaster and all pots, pans, cutlery and dishes. There is additional kitchen storage in an antique Chinese buffet. There is a utility closet next to the kitchen with items that you may need - such as a stepladder, extra folding chairs, vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board, etc.
The third floor bathroom is located off the entry hall and includes a toilet, sink, large shower and an over-scaled black Baroque mirror.
From the living room you descend the circular staircase to the bedroom on the floor below (which has its own separate entrance within the building from the elevator lobby.) This floor has a firm futon-style mattress on a king-size platform bed. An African folk mirror hangs above a chest with twenty-seven (!) drawers, offering lots of storage. There is also a closet in the entry hall by the bathroom. This very recently renovated bathroom is larger than the one on the floor above, with a spacious shower, huge mirror, handsome cabinetry, tiling and slate flooring. In addition, there is a washer and dryer in this bathroom, making it easy for you to do any necessary laundry during your stay. Know that there is also a dry cleaners across the street from the apartment.
As an added feature, in the bedroom you can write postcards or plug in your laptop at a curious writing desk from the 1940’s. High-speed wireless Internet access (WiFi) is available throughout the apartment, but the signal is strongest at this desk. Opposite the bed is a flat-screen TV, which has channels in many languages, including CNN International, BBC News and other English-language and movie stations. The apartment's telephone service provides free local and international long-distance calls to landlines in more than thirty countries, including the U.S., Canada, Australia and all of Europe.
