The title of my review says the most important things, I think. Breakfast was nice, too. Don't park in the private parking, even though it's free--it's too far from the hotel. Park across the street near the water in the public lot. The reception desk is a little tricky to find, but rather in a fun, this-is-an-ancient-village way. It's actually... More

These are the types of hotels I love. Small, cozy, feels like home. You wlk in to a nice little reception area ( after parking in their private secure parking, not eveident to find parking near by on street), and you are instantly greeted with a friendly hello. The main buidling has the breakfast room and a nice lounge area... More

Our major problem here was finding the hotel in the first place. The actual hotel has no address on it, and there is a place named Absinthe Hotel around the corner from where you have to register but there is no sign there directing you to the place you need to go. Also, there is no one at the desk... More

We stayed for 1 night in this delightful hotel in the center of Honfleur. If you are looking for a hotel with lots of character, then this is the place for you. The beds were very soft and the room was a lovely temperature thanks to the air-conditioner. Bathroom was well equipped and clean. We decided to look around in... More

This is a lovely old building full of solid timber, stone, stained glass and tiled floors, set right on the edge of the harbour. The reception is lovely, with its large stone fireplace and solid timber framing, plenty of tourist information and facilities for making tea and coffee throughout the day, which is a welcome touch. Just beyond is a... More

Quaint hotel in a great location.Supper view of the harbor. Close to all the action in a lovely town. Very accommodating staff. Well equipped and comfortable bathroom. No elevator. Internet in and out. Parking off the street but a short walk away. We would stay again.

Our party of 2 stayed here for 3 nights. Our standard room was comfortable and quite roomy. Able to deal with baggage, etc. needed for a 2 week stay in France. Staff were pleasant, but we didn't ask much because everything we needed was provided. As others have said, just steps from the harbor and also convenient, therefore, to the... More

L'Absinthe is a charming hotel with it's architecture and stained glass windows, warm welcoming fire in the comfortable lobby, and beautifully set up breakfast room (the dishes, so pretty). Our room was small, but comfortable and very clean--the bed and pillows very nice for a good night's sleep. We had a jacuzzi tub which felt wonderful after a long day.... More

Located just steps from the picturesque Honfleur harbor, Hotel l'Absinthe features good-sized, adequate rooms (no elevator) many with harbor view. Great personal service and the superb l'Absinthe restaurant next door are the best draws.

My only regret about L'Absinthe is that we were only able to stay one night. Such a charming and timber-beamed atmospheric old-world hotel right on the harbour! And every uniquely appointed room comes with a Jacuzzi bath ... a welcome and relaxing way to end a busy day of sightseeing. Fortunately, for us, we were some of only a few... More
