Really nicely refurbished, small hotel with modern boutique feel. Sea views and friendly service. Great place to cycle Col de la Madone from which is a stunning ride. There is a small swimming pool and easy access to the beach. It is five minutes walk from the old part of Menton

Nothing at all to worry about here. Easy booking and easy check in. Air con not the strongest in the room. Kettle but no tea bags only coffee. View over beach and verandah very pleasant but bear in mind that there is a busy road between you and the beach and the orange floodlights are very bright all night. I... More

Hello Nick, Many thanks for the kind review! I just wanted to apologise for the lack of tea bags in the room: there should normally have been some! Also, regarding the air conditioning, we have to switch either to heating or cooling for all the rooms in the hotel at the same time. You visited us during the slightly awkward... More

The Napoleon hotel is located in the best neighborhood in Menton known as Garavan. It is in the far eastern end of the town and is mostly residential which gives it its sedate charm. There is a convenient train station in Garavan to hop along the coast or into Italy as well as a bus that takes you almost anywhere... More

This place has a very good graphic concept, rooms are visually very attractive. We chose a room facing away from the busy road, it turned out to be extremely small! The bathroom was also minimal, rather badly lit. Wifi very capricious! Breakfast excellent! Barman who welcomed us with lemonade was very friendly.

A short stay in Menton was made even more special by using this boutique hotel. The decor was modern and fresh, and would appeal to a majority of travellers. Service was always friendly, with a willingness to deal with any request with a minimum of fuss. Rooms were a good size, with my only disappointment that I hadn't booked a... More

Napoleon is a very nice hotell, well situated, with a great seaview, friendly staff delivering good service. The breakfast better than in most french hotels. You have all the things worth seeing in walking distance, among other the fantastic Cocteau museeum

This is without a doubt one of the best hotels we have stayed in for many a year. On our arrival we were greeted at the reception with two glasses of home made lemonade - very acceptable after a long journey. The receptionist was very welcoming - in fact all the staff were superb. We had a room with a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Napoleon. The front desk staff was warm and welcoming as well as helpful. They gave us useful information on restaurants, booked tables, had bus and train schedules and we enjoyed them very much. Close to the beach as well as the Garavan station, the hotel is well located. It's a small touch,... More
