A recent stay at Gabriel

Posted May 16, 2011 on Hotels.com
It wasn't a bad hotel at all. It is VERY hard to find initally, but very close to main pedestrian stroll. Bring the map, and make sure you have the phone number handy. There is no signage at all to find it. Its clean, bright and a great deal. I would stay there again, TF

Perfect location but...

Posted Feb 21, 2011
This is not a hotel, you just rent a room in an apartment. I reserved a room with balcony (Supposedly an elegant room) for two days, but we had to stay in a room without window on the first day. We moved to other room on the second day, which was nice. The internet connection is terribly slow. They ask you via email to pay either via Western Union or Pay Pal before you arrive, which we did not accept. (Your credit card is used to serve as a guarantee for the reservation by Expedia, right?) But later on, once we arrived, we had to pay cash, which was not nice. Do not expect to get a nice breakfast as it is just a basic one. Keep in mind that there is no elevator in the building.

Comfortable stay in a perfect location

Posted Aug 17, 2010
We stayed in Barcelona for 3 nights and had a really great experience! The owners are very friendly and will go out of their way to help with any queries you might have. The rooms are comfortable, there is a fully equipped kitchen and living room, every room is air-conditioned. There is 2 flat available and since there was 5 of us, we completely rented out the flat at the top floor! needless to say, we were extremely comfortable with a fully equipped flat just to ourselves, which includes washing machine, large terrace, living room, kitchen and two bedrooms and everything right in the middle of Barcelona, 1 minute away from Las Ramblas! The only thing to keep in mind is that there is no elevator (yet) but it was not a problem for us.

Steer clear of this one!

This place does not live up to its description at all. I would not recommend it to anyone. My reservation was cancelled but no one informed me. The owner was rude and unhelpful. The kitchen was filthy and no towels were provided. It was hot and noisy. The place seemed highly disorganized. Gluten-free is a joke!
