Gekko is the Daily Mail’s Website Of The Week

The Daily Mail is currently featuring Gekko as its Website Of The Week.

Their travel journalist Fred Mawer wrote: “I imagined that I was after a hotel in Barcelona. I’ve visited Madrid recently, and came across a great little trendy but affordable hotel called Abalu. Would Gekko be able to come up with somewhere similar in Barcelona? In a word, yes. It picked out hotels such as Chic & Basic Born and the Market in the Catalan capital, which I know are intimate, trendy and affordable, as I’ve visited them.” He described Gekko as “inspiring and easy to use.”
