“Not in the Marais”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Nice hotel but it is NOT in the Marais. My partner booked the hotel because we specifically wanted to stay in the Marais. We went by the reviews and the name "Gabriel Paris Marias" assuming that this meant it was in the district called "Le Marais". Well the hotel is close but not actually in the Marais. It is a nice hotel for the money but I guess they think they will get more bookings by fooling people into thinking that it is someplace it is not. So if you are looking for a hotel in the Marais make sure the zip code is 75003 or 75004. The Zip for this place is 75011 the is NOT the Marias.

Dear Guest,

First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your Parisian trip with us and we deeply regret that you were not satisfied regarding the location of the hotel.

Also, we would like to clarify the fact that the Hotel Gabriel Paris is nested in the heart of the Haut-Marais of Paris, between the freshly rebuilt Place de la République, and the famous Rue Oberkampf, in the so trendy 11th district of Paris.

Our team truly hopes to have the pleasure to welcoming you back soon and sends you its best wishes.

Yours sincerely,
Géraldine Thouvay
Hotel Manager

This is a quiet, small hotel, remarkable for its fine design down to the smallest detail. Some of the rooms are very small, but they have been carefully planned so that all amenities are present. Service is friendly and a good breakfast served every morning. It is located near the Place de la Republique -- Metro stations are very nearby, but it is not, of course, in the middle of the large concentrations of tourist attractions. The price is reasonable for what one gets.

Great hotel. Very modern. Towels and sheets cleaned everyday. Staff very helpful especially the man on the evening shift. Breakfast was complementary as we booked directly with the hotel online. Delivered breakfast in bed if you required free of charge. Location was excellent a short walk to Republique square with main metro. Lots of bars and eateries nearby. Short break for my mum and I and it was perfect.

We loved our stay at Hotel Gabriel!! The hotel just feels luxe -- new, fresh, clean and comfortable. The design touches are a breath of fresh air and even though we didn't spend a lot of time at our hotel, it was funny how much we found ourselves lingering in the morning or before dinner because we just enjoyed being there.

The customer service is also stellar. I felt it was almost like "your wish is our command." Requests that I would have expected them to say "no sorry, we can't do that" were no problem and didn't require extra reasoning or reminding. I am SO mad at myself for forgetting the name of the gentleman who went searching to get us wine glasses late at night...Marcus? Marcel? We were just over-the-top impressed with him. Everyone was a pleasure to deal with.

Would happily recommend, and hope to stay here again.

First things first - I really enjoyed my stay at this small design hotel in Paris. The design is modern and appealing, light colours and good, practical design. Staff at this hotel are extremely friendly, helpful and attentive, the room does not lack anything in facilities.
I had a room on the 6th floor which is something I would recommend given it is very quiet and has a bit of a view.
The room was quite small, but very managable from a size perspective, window that actually open allowing for fresh air.
The only two things that were not perfect in the room were: whilst the shower itself was great, it was not possible to take a shower without almost flooding the bathroom due to the glass separation simply being too small and the shower non-movable. Staying there on my own, this was not a problem, had there been two of us, it would not have been great for the second person. The other issue was a very variable speed of internet connection in the room - having said this, WiFi was provided free of charge.
The area was a new one for me, very close and within walking distance of the Marais (but closer to REpublique than anything else) and within walking distance of Bastille, metro very close and within very easy reach of Gare Du Nord and Gare de L'est. Good quarter to stay in.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on the top floor (6th) - quiet and a bit of a view, ideally not facing the...

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Gabriel for four nights in October. It's a sweet, modern boutique hotel located on the border of the 3rd and the 11th in a young, hip area (for New Yorkers, think Lower East Side). We had an an Executive Room on the third floor facing the street. The room was cozy (a.k.a. small), but smartly designed with built-in cabinets, niches, and closets to store your things and keep them out of the way. The bed was comfy, and the air conditioning worked excellently.

The bathroom was also "cozy". It contained a stand-up shower (a plus for Americans), but the glass divider only ran half the length of the shower and allowed for water to spill and splash on the floor. Fortunately, the housekeeping staff was very generous with extra towels.

Breakfast was good and plentiful, with many options to choose from. The location was usually convenient, with the Republique metro station very nearby along with all of the great shops and restaurants in the Marais, the 11th, and in and around Canal St. Martin. When we didn't dine in the area but wanted to walk home, it seemed like a trek, but that may have just been from too much wine.

I stayed here with my fiance and his parents in August 2013. Overall the hotel was really good for the price, breakfast was excellent and although the rooms were on the small side, it had a lovely design hotel feel about it which more than made up for the size. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the shower/bathroom facilities were good.

The hotel is in a good location - it's a 5 minute walk to Republique metro and therefore quite close to everything. We had a fantastic time - would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony if possible.
