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 la rue the building with red wooden panes on the left but it took us15 mins to find c) pushing a wheelchair on cobbled streets- the place is not set up for the disabled! Having said all that the annex rooms are very comfortable with excellent shower facilities- walk in wet room and a jacuzzi bath! Lots of bubbles! Breakfast is -13 euros a bit over priced but there are loads of places for breakfast if walking is not an issue.

Room Tip: Room 9 and 11 were fab-190 euros each though

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" . The sitting is truly a wonderful place to read, sip tea, and let the world pass you by! We will return to Hotel L' Absinthe.

merci beaucoup

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 closet space, fluffy robes and a deep jet-studded bathtub with bath fizzies on hand made for a very relaxing night.

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 the best dinners I had in France! Good food, good sleep...can't beat this!

Room Tip: My room was on the 2nd floor, far right at the top of the stairs...and it was very quiet!

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 with a separate shower. We enjoyed our brief stay. One point to say, the reception seem to have a staffing problem, it was tough to to find somebody for check-in. Ringing the bell did not help, I made a phone call to get somebody to come.
Very good, they have a garage not far away, so no stress to find parking.

Room Tip: the rooms with a view are towards the street, if you like it calm choose the side-street rooms as we...

Very clean, well kept and nicely furbished hotel. But the KEY is the location. Had a lovely view of the harbour. It is close to all the key things one wants to do in Honfleur, walking, shopping, restaurants. Loved our time there. Breakfast room is great. It helps you to wake up slowly but cheerfully. Great experience.

Room Tip: I would go for the harbour view room, priceless any time of the day!
