The Gabriel offers modern, stylish peaceful rooms, yet the hotel is only two minutes walk from the Place de la Republique!
The decor is funky, clean and modern, with excellent lighting - all unusual in this price bracket. The bathrooms are well designed with rain showers and hand-held sprays and the excellent lighting design is carried through from the bedroom itself.
My room was on the second floor at the front of the hotel with double windows overlooking the street. Any fear of a disturbed night's sleep were banished after a few minutes of being in the room - barely a whisper was audible from outside. This had less to do with the excellent sound proofing and more to do with the fact that the street itself has virtually no traffic, either motorised or pedestrian.
The buffet breakfast in the morning is excellent - typical of hotels of this size in Paris, but presented in a very stylish way. Bread and pastries are on offer, with fruit and yoghurts and ham and brie. Eggs are available to cook in a bain marie to your own specification and a Nespresso machine is on hand for coffee.
I would struggle to find any reason to fault this hotel and would certainly consider returning on my next trip to Paris.
