Reviewed 14 March 2017 via mobile

Location is perfect.
It is close to metro, republic square cafes,etc.
You can go by taxi every region of Paris easily.

But..

Day staff in reception is not convenient for this job.
Night staff is oppositely perfect.

Building is very old.

Elevator is terrible and insecure.

Rooms is unfortunately bad. Maybe not enough but,
Dirty appearance. Bed and sheets are clean.
Bath-room is very very small.
I couldnt clean my foots in the cabin.
70cmx70cm nearly.
Shower tap is interesting. You push it the water comes and 10 second water stops.again push the tap 10 aecond water and stop. Again push...

There isnt even a cheap pratic disposable slipper.

There isnt a power outlet near by the bed. So your telephone charge is less during the day and when you arrived the room,you lie on your bed and you want to your messages photos mails.. It is impossible.

If you ask me "one more time do you.want to stay in this hotel ?"

Firstly l search better choises. If cant find l can stay.


Stayed: March 2017, travelled with friends

The room was small but cozy and clean.
Staffs were very attentive and friendly.
Moreover, location was excellent.
It is in the center of Paris and surrounded by wonderful restaurants and shopping street.
I had a great time in Hotel Absolute.

Room Tip: great view of canal, quiet area, elevator

This was my husbands and my first trip to Paris and we absolutely loved it! the hotel was really lovely, small rooms but more than sufficient as we were out doing the tourist things all day. We were thrilled with our room and the view as it was on the 5th floor and I could even see the Eiffel Tower and watch it light up at night! That was a real treat! Because this is a hostel/hotel I was concerned that there would be noise from the hostel guests but not at all.

The breakfast was sufficient to fuel us for a long day, although the breakfast room is a bit tight, so I would recommend getting in and out early. The elevator up to the 5th floor is also veeeery slow but for us that added to the charm of the old building.

The bathroom is our room was clean and neat and as mentioned our views were just stunning. Looking down in the bustling city street of Paris was an experience of a lifetime. We were also quite happy to be out of Paris central as we got to explore more off the beaten path. We felt perfectly safe walking at night. There is also a lovely little cafe on the corner next to the hotel where we enjoyed drinks and a superette a few meters up the road.

The hotel is a short walk to two different metro stations making it easily accessible.

The staff were really lovely and helpful as well. We will definitely be back!! :-)

Room Tip: 5th floor!

We stayed two nigths at this hostel. It was reasonably good especially in terms of being close to the station and many touristic destinations. We reached our destinations including Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Montmartre by walking.

Although the room was clean and warm, its furniture was quite old and basic, particularly the cupboard and the bed. In addition, it was frustrating for me that there was no an electrical socket close to the bed as I had to stand to use my phone while it was in charge.

The staff in the reception was nice and welcome to help if necessary.
We did not preper to eat breakfast served at the hostel with 7 euro charge as it seems to me that the variety of food is poor compared to the ones provided other hostels we recently stayed in Venice and Rome with free of charge.

Lastly, as a Turkish, I would like to emphasise that you can find a number of Turkish restaurants very near the hostel.

Our room was a bit dark, but the radiator (once we figured out how to make it work) was much appreciated. The bathroom was very small (especially the shower) but it worked.

Bed was comfortable and the staff very nice and welcoming.

Would recommend the patisserie towards République station, and Pizza Pino in République has amazing creme brûlée.
