Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Gabriel


A modern hotel near the island of Mont Saint-Michel

Unlike many other establishments in the area, Hotel Gabriel is vibrant and has a youthful atmosphere. Vivid blues and oranges adorn the walls and multi-colored, comfortable furniture decorates the lobby. Clear plastic chandeliers and interesting lamps make the area luminous and inviting while the front desk, hued in blue and backed by a flat-screen TV, has a contemporary, welcoming feel. The colorful breakfast room combines wood and plastic furniture for a trendy look, and the artwork is upbeat and unusual for the city. Hallways can be a bit dim, but overall the property is airy and bright. Keep in mind that the Gabriel does not have air-conditioning or elevators, and stairs can be steep.

Within walking distance of shops and restaurants

The Gabriel resides on the quiet Le Couesnon River and is a short drive or free shuttle ride north to the island of Mont Saint-Michel, with the shuttle stop found across the street. The hotel’s within walking distance of an array of shops, restaurants, and tourist sights, while St. Gervais Basilica, Mont-Dol, and Dol Cathedral are all a 25-minute drive away. A rental car is necessary for guests who want to see the sights beyond the island’s main attractions.

Fresh and unique design -- and sleep up to five people

Paisley carpets, modern artwork, and blue and orange accents decorate the quiet rooms at the Gabriel. Beds are covered in fresh white linens while the orange headboards have magnetic, movable reading lights for style and convenience. Rooms are well-organized and take advantage of all useful space while being funky and distinct, like the overall atmosphere of the hotel. Coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary newspapers are also included along with tiny desks and contemporary purple chairs. All bathrooms are stylish and clean with orange showerheads, wood-type tiling, and white counter tops and sinks. Some rooms have walk-in showers while others have tubs. Note that the rooms aren't air-conditioned. The largest rooms sleep five people.

Free breakfast and Wi-Fi, though there's a fee for parking 

Amenities are generally limited at the Gabriel, though some perks are offered. The hotel offers concierge services in addition to on-site parking, but the parking costs a daily fee and you need a code initially or you’ll be locked out. Free Wi-Fi is available as well, but the signal is weak in many places. The free breakfast receives high marks and there’s a small business center with a computer and tiny desk. In addition to being pet-friendly, the Gabriel is associated with Restaurant La Rôtisserie, a one-minute walk from the hotel. The eatery serves lunch and dinner from April to mid-November.
