we stayed on dec 31st to jan 1st and had a single and a double room ( No. 2 & 3 ). Free wifi and a cosy entrance hall with fireplace and coffee/tea. The location is on a busy street but 10m off and the rooms where calm. Surprisingly modern and matching brownish colours, very welcoming. The bathroom was spacious... More

Very clean, well kept and nicely furbished hotel. But the KEY is the location. Had a lovely view of the harbour. It is close to all the key things one wants to do in Honfleur, walking, shopping, restaurants. Loved our time there. Breakfast room is great. It helps you to wake up slowly but cheerfully. Great experience.

We stayed 2 nights in the annex. As others mentioned, the view was nice. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable, but because there was no A/C, we needed the window open to be cool enough to sleep. Unfortunately, there was a lot of traffic on Friday and Saturday nights. When the regular traffic settled down, the garbage... More

We recently stayed at L'Absinthe. Our room was absolutely beautiful with very upscale boutique bathroom and attractive contemporary furniture, even though the building is historic. A very nice quality continental breakfast was served in a very pleasant little room. Be advised, though, that it is really impossible to approach this hotel by car. Your best bet is to immediately pull... More

This is a beautiful small harbour town, a bit like Venice because everywhere you look there is something wonderful to see and L'Absinthe was perfectly situated. We stayed for 2 nights in an annexe room which offered a great view of one of the harbours. Our room ( no 11) had three large windows to the harbour and a very... More

We stayed here on our way back to the UK from Brittany. We booked a suite (room 7) as a last splurge. We were not disppointed! Our room was in the attic of the main building (they have some rooms across the road). It had lovely old worldly charm, which was very much in keeping with Honfleur old town in... More

My wife and I stayed in the old part of the hotel, the room was huge. One suspected that the room itself dated back hundreds of years (with the exposed oak ceiling and support beams) but it had been brought into the 21 century with modern bathroom fittings and wall finishers. I think the mix of the two went very... More

We stayed in the annex but the location is excellent.The room was well appointed, quiet and we had a beautiful view of the water. The parking is a problem. It is just best to pay for the public parking along the water and bring your bags to the hotel. It would have been nice to have an electric kettle and... More

We loved loved loved this hotel. The staff are warm and welcoming. I was glad I had some high school French to rely on as at least one person did not speak English but we communicated perfectly and everyone is very patient! The breakfast is GREAT - well worth the price. Big selection, freshly-made lattes, cocoas. They work hard to... More

This hotel is well situated in the old part of Honfleur, literally only a couple of minutes flat stroll to the old harbour. As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel reception is across the cobblestoned Rue de la Ville from the L'Absinthe restaurant of the same name. The Rue de la Ville has bollards to prevent cars entering from the... More
