Reviewed 4 December 2013

Myself and my wife stayed here end of November for 2 nights. We opted for the Glowing room on the 5th floor. I did a lot of research prior to this trip, this was the first time we were alone without the kids since our honeymoon so wanted it perfect.
I can pleasantly say it lived up to our expectations, was a lovely hotel, small and unique, elegantly furnished, quite individual, exactly what we were looking for.
The location was quite central, Republique metro station is just a few minutes walk, and Gard de Nord station only 4 stops away.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful. There is no restaurant but there are places to eat closeby. There is an option of breakfast in the room, i'd advise to not go for this as the selection supplied was very minimal. The next day we had breakfast downstairs, much better.

The beds are very comfortable, and you can see the thought gone into the room design, the LED lighting, coves, shelves etc.

Highly recommend for couples.

Stayed here with partner for his first trip to Paris - he loved it! Great hotel based in the northeast part of the Marais and very easy access to Metro. All rooms in Paris are small but the design makes this feel larger than normal, with plenty of storage space and a very comfortable bed. Only downside is the shower door is poorly design and you do end up soaking the bathroom floor every time you have a shower, effectively turning the bathroom into a wet room.

We wanted to stay away from the main tourist area, but ended up walking from the hotel and were given great directions by the front desk. We didn't eat in the area as were seeing friends but was a busy area and would have been easy to find somewhere to eat. Walking down to the market on Sunday morning was a breeze, as was walking north along the canal.

The good things:

- Excellent location.
It is, indeed, in the Marais, albeit the northeast corner. Super convenient immediate proximity of two metro stops, great little bistros and shops away from the tat of the main avenues & square (such as the highly recommended La Pharmacie, two doors down from the hotel, perfect dinner or lunch on hearty bistro fare in lovely old pharmacy; or the new-ish, gorgeous and seriously foodie Chez Moustache, about a 5min walk southwest of the hotel).

- Lovely design, well maintained, quiet and super-comfy.
Modern, white and bright, but not cold or dysfunctional, great little touches everywhere, great lighting, super-comfy beds & nice bedding, masses of hot water in beautiful shower/bath. Room very quiet, on 6th floor, with large windows looking onto Parisian roofscape - lovely.

- Simple but lovely breakfast in cute little lobby, with GREAT breads and croissants, butter, jams and small cheese/ham selection, but, crucially, with own egg boiler (perfect!) and make your own coffee Nespresso machine (bliss!!) Though the two people serving/assisting with breakfast need to be told not to bang and clang with such fretful passion when they go on about their business - it was like eating on a construction site!

The not-so-good things:

- Rooms are TINY TINY TINY, with hardly any storage.
Yes, this is Paris, all rooms are small, but we stayed at the supposedly biggest/best room (the Glowing series) and we still could not keep even one small suitcase open while walking around in the room (let alone two...), could not hang all our clothes in minuscule and very short (forget hanging a mid-length dress...) and had even less space for non-hanging clothing (no drawers, just couple of tiny shelves in wardrobe), or shoes. Just about OK for a weekend, and ideally in the summer (fewer garments).

The entire hotel is tiny - eg. lift can only fit one person with suitcase, or two people no luggage, and is incredibly slow, a real nightmare to try and catch when cleaners are working in the morning - but this would have matter less if the rooms where not so squashed. I don't dare imagine what the 'standard' sized rooms are like!

- Bathroom functionality:
Exactly zero space for washbag/cosmetic storage in the otherwise very generously sized bathroom - we had to move a stool from the room to use for this purpose. Also, crucially, whilst shower head is great and powerful, you cannot hang it up, but need to hand hold while standing in an otherwise gorgeous bathtub, but which also does not insulate from the room properly for water-splashing purposes, so shower out of the question... We enjoyed baths very much, though the products they give are rubbish - not the Korres they show in their pictures, unfortunately, but some synthetic-smelling unknown brand instead.

In summary, in the crazily overpriced/undersized Parisian hotel scene, this is a real find and it is likely we will be returning, as what it offers for what is charges is reasonable indeed. However, with a bit more consideration when designing it, this could have been a truly outstanding offering.

Room Tip: Glowing - don't even think about the smaller ones, unless you are solo. And make sure you ask fo...

Perfect hotel, walking distance from the streets of Marais. Really helpful receptionist, Esther, who went out of her way to book restaurants for us. The bathroom in our Deluxe room had a funny smell at night, seemingly a drain issue rather than cleanliness of the Hotel itself.

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.

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.
