One of 3-stars that can be 5-stars and you would agree. Very warm, pleasant and authentic. You will never regret staying in L'Absinthe when in Honfleur. Location, welcoming reception - everything is very nice. Probably it is rated 3 stars because it is not "typical". 2 buildings, no elevator, busy parking etc. But if you are there for vacation -...

A small hotel, with a few rooms in two different buildings, each about 3 floors. We had room 7 for one day (a beautiful suite), and room 10 for two more. Both had nice views of the harbor, very modern facilities. Internet slightly flaky. Only problem was checking in -- we arrived around 9:30 PM, "reception" was nonexistent (had to... More

We stayed there a few days and got to experience several rooms, 8, 11 and 12. Staying there with 2 kids, the first day we had to book 2 different rooms and ended up later on in the suite, room 12 on the top floor. This was a random choice, coming from the over-crowded Deauville this past august. The Absinthe... More

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
