Our family of 4 (children ages 13 and 16) just spent 9 wonderful days in the apartment Gloriosa on the Left Bank in Paris. It was our first experience with Guest Apartment Services (GAS), and first time renting an apartment rather than staying in a hotel. Both GAS and Gloriosa exceeded our expectations.
Every communication with GAS from the time we began our search, until after we left the apartment, was prompt and professional. Everyone's English was impeccable. I had every confidence that once we got to Paris everything would run smoothly, and it did. Do not fear renting an apartment. GAS is there every step of the way to give you as much help with your visit to Paris as you need.
With regard to apartment Gloriosa, it was absolutely perfect for us. We are all runners. The location along the Seine gave us easy running routes every morning. It was also a centralized location in which to visit many sites in Paris by foot, and there were major metro stations close by. The neighborhood is quaint and we always felt safe.
We used the laundry in the apt. every day to cut down on our packing, and to keep the running clothes clean. It was unbelievably convenient. There was tons of storage space for the 4 of us, and having 2 1/2 bathrooms was fantastic for everyone to get ready simultaneous each morning. We loved being able to have breakfast in every morning, and to bring back fresh food at night to enjoy in the apt. We wound up saving a lot of money. The apt. itself was very spacious and perfect for our family of 4. Everyone was so sad to leave. It changed the whole feel of our Paris trip from being all out touristy, to a more residential experience. We will never go back to a hotel again in Paris!
