The room has been incredibly small, no air-co. You should definitely pick this place if you wish to be in the middle of the party. Great localization, but very noisy almost all night long.. Sweet service, very friendly and helpful. Fine breakfast for the price!

All the team of Hotel Absolute, thanks you for your comments. The surfaces of rooms are more restricted, unmistakably, in Paris than in other European capitals. Looking forward to welcoming you during your next stay in Paris. Very cordially The direction More

The hotel is good located, and it is acceptable value for the money for Paris standards. However the room was very small and not much space for two persons to move around. The window view was not that sensational, we had to look at the space between buildings where people seem to throw the trash from their windows that no... More

Great location, clean, wonderful staff, amazing room! Nothing to complain about! My room was to the street, but the noise level didn't disturb me at all. There's also a supermarket right next to the hotel!

Very close to city centre, nice and inexpensive hostel. A minute away from Republique square with bus and metro stations. My room was with three beds, nice and clean, with a tiny fridge in the room, very useful when you want to save money on eating out, plus there is a store right outside open until 9. Good sweet French... More

There was a massive bump in our floor so you can barely open the front door or the bathroom door. Probably one of the first hotels that they don't greet you every time you walk in the door and walk straight past them, not even a simple "hello". There was a small amount of hair and dust in our sheets... More

We had a good time at Absolute Hotel. This budget hotel is very central and has a nice staff. Saint Sebastian ( as he used to call himself) really likes jokes. If you have a sense good humor, that's ok. We had a very nice time in Paris. Thanks Absolute Hotel.

First of all,extremely friendly reception staff.Hotel is well located in a charming neighbourhood and close to the metro system (~800 m).Room is small and basic but has all the necessities.(shower,toilet,sink,small double bed,TV).Elevator is small but functional.At 37 euro a night,this is ideal for short visits to the glorious capital of France.

We were there from22 to 26 th Jun 2016. It was really good for the price we had paid comparing to other places.

Staying in Canal Saint-Martin

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighborhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
