“Clean comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

I have stayed here twice on business and found the hotel quiet, clean and comfortable with efficient staff and a decent breakfast with fresh croissants and pains au chocolat. It is only 5 minutes from the Metro then 10/15 minutes into the centre and there are shops and cafés in the vicinity so you don't have to go into the heart of Paris for a good meal. The rooms are small as is the lift but that is really not unusual in Paris and the comfortable beds and clean crisp bedding more than make up for the lack of floor space.

My friends and I (group of four) stayed at Hotel Gabriel for four nights in December 2011. Hotel Gabriel offers affordable accommodations just outside of central Paris. The hotel is located about a 5 minute walk from two metro stations, and in about a 15 minute metro ride you’ll be in the heart of Paris!

Our hotel room was very small, but it provided an adequate place to rest our weary eyes. Our friends’ room was a corner room, and it seemed to be a lot more spacious than our room. If you can, be sure to request a corner room. Each day our room was cleaned and fresh towels were provided. The front desk staff spoke English and were more than willing to help us with directions, ordering takeout food, etc.

There are a couple of convenience stores within a 1-2 minute walk of the hotel and there are many restaurants within a 5-15 minute walk of the hotel.

If you’re looking for budget friendly accommodations and you don’t mind a short metro ride from Paris, you’ll enjoy Hotel Gabriel.

Stayed here for 5 nights in July. The location was ok, bit outside the city but closest metro station was just like 5 minutes walk away. There were also some good restaurants in the area and some grocer stores, so you didn't have to leave to downtown Paris for everything.

The room itself was really small, wich was kinda bothering 'cause there wasn't even enough space to open both of our suitcases (we had 2 really big ones) at the same time. But well, we didn't spend that much time in the room, so didn't let it bother too much. Room was still clean and the bed was comfortable, so for the price it was def ok.

The breakfast was the lousiest ever (just coffee, juice, youghurt, croissant and some bread, not even cheese or anything), but that was something we were prepared for.

Staff was really friendly and were more than willing to help us with everything we needed.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Found it very handy for the Metro (5 min walk) and because it's a bit further out (second to last stop) it was very reasonably priced. Very quick to get into the centre of the city on the tube though (15-20 mins).

Do not get this hotel confused with their other (much swankier) one in the Marais. This is basic, clean, quiet and a bit of a bargain!

Booked though Octopus Travel and paid around £50 a night which was very reasonable and overall very satisfied with our experience.

We spent 4 resting nights in this hotel. The rooms are small but clean and well equipped.
Breakfast is average but fresh. Coffee sometimes was only “black water”.
Staff is very friendly and eager to help.
The hotel area is safe and quiet, but it is a bit away from city center.

I’ll recommend it for a short visit to Paris and I intend to choose it again in my next visits.

This was my second stay at the Gabriel, and I found it to be less nice than it was the previous visit. First of all, the carpets were stained, there were no washcloths, no kleenex, and previously used shampoo in the room. We had a smaller room than we had previously. In fact, it was uncomfortable for more than one person to be out of bed in the room. We each had a carryon and a checked suitcase, so there was even less room. Not that being suitcase-free would have made a difference.

There are some good things about this hotel. First and most important, the service is great. The young gentleman at the front desk was there during the last visit. He is super helpful and really is the saving grace of this hotel. The other positive is that the windows are truly excellent at blocking out street noise.

All in all, I would not stay here again if I had a choice. Rooms are too small, too unclean, and lack even the most basic amenities. Also, the location is good only if you have business at the convention center.
