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.

The room did not have any air-conditioner and you... More

It's a combination hotel and hostel, it's handily located between a bar/cafe and laundrette and there is a supermarket, nail bar and Thai massage near by. It's not the greatest area (about 4 mins walk from Repubblique metro) but it is fine for a short break, clean and friendly staff. No air con if you go in summer and too... More

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.
