Lovely room, clean, comfortable bed and excellent shower. Air con. Excellent view. Nice staff in the hotel. Free coffee in the afternoon at the Reception was also nice but it would be better to have facilities in each room. There is no fridge /mini bar in the room which means that cold drinks are not possible. The main issue is... More

As a travel pro at DM vacation I always rate the hotel based on their advertised quality. This hotel overall meets the standard. The hotel has two buildings approximately 100-200 meters from each other. I was in the building that was separate from the lobby. The room was nicely appointed and very modern. Size was very nice. I had a... More

Spent 2 nights at L'Absinthe and really liked the place. Just yards from the main harbour in town and ideally placed for wandering around the town. The hotel is made up of a couple of buildings and there was an entry key pad on the building that we were in so very secure. The inside of the hotel is really... More

We stayed in the annex building and had a lovely room with a gorgeous bathroom. The location is outstanding right near the old harbor, which is charming. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay again!

As all the other travellers have said this hotel has an excellent location, great views and walking distance to bars and restaurants! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.Other travellers staying at the hotel were also lovely. The big problem is a) parking- there is secure parking but a 15 min walk away, b) finding the hotel reception it's on 1... More

Our holiday in Normandy was met with many days of rain..but when you stay at Hotel L'Absinthe you have the cozy warm sitting room which makes the outside less troublesome. We had a very quite, wonderfully decorated room. The bathroom was equipped with everything one would want. Breakfast was very filling and no problem to request another "cafe au lait"... More

On a road trip with our French friends we did not have any preconceived notions about where we were staying--our friends made the booking, but this is a delightful place, right at the marina with several restaurants in the near vicinity and all of Honfleur's charm at your feet. The room was exceptionally clean, quiet and comfortable with plenty of... More

My first trip to Hon Fleur and I am afraid the bar was set quite high! One night for business and I had a remarkably comfortable and quiet room with a fabulous jetted tub! As other have noted, it's all about the location...waterfront, street front, you can walk to everything. After a stroll through the town, returned for one of... More

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
